Dental Implants for missing teeth in Aliso Viejo, CA

Years ago, if you were missing teeth, whether due to trauma or disease, you had limited options in terms of tooth replacement. Now, advancements in dental technology have led to improved options that restore both functionality and appearance to the smile. Dental implants are widely considered to be the number one option for tooth replacement because they are highly customizable and the closest option to your natural teeth. At the Office of Dr. Claire Cho, DDS is Aliso Viejo, CA, we recommend dental implants to many of our patients who are missing multiple teeth or facing full extractions.  If you would like to learn more about dental implants including their benefits, read on below.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are a tooth restoration option that replaces missing tooth root and crown portion of the tooth. When gaps are left in the smile from missing teeth, it can cause bone deterioration and lead to other oral health implications. Dental implants have an extremely high success rate and are preferred over other options such as removable dentures due to their natural look and feel.

Benefits of dental implants

There are many reasons our patients love dental implants, from their aesthetics to their oral health benefits. The most notable benefits include:

  • Incomparable stability – After the implant is placed into the jawbone it goes through a healing process where it fuses to the bone, allowing it to provide a stable foundation for the remainder of the restoration.
  • No specialized care required – Once implants have healed and the final restoration has been attached, all you have to do is brush and floss as normal.  
  • Improved oral health – Dental implants stimulate the jawbone which prevents deterioration and improves long term oral health. Additionally, dental implants do not require alterations to remaining healthy teeth.
  • Highly successful – Dental implants have a success rate of up to 98% and can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene.

What are the different aspects of implant dentistry?
At Dr. Cho’s office, we have been placing dental implants for the last 15 years.

Implant dentistry has come a long way. There are many different aspects, such as bone grafting if someone lacks bone.

What is bone grafting in implant dentistry?
Every situation depends on how much bone, the anatomical structures such as the sinus, where nerves are, etc.

Using our CT scan in our office, we diagnose each case to use the right kind of bone. We sometimes draw bone to get growth factors called PRGS.

Healing time ranges anywhere from 3-6 months and depends on whether it’s a single implant or an all-on-four.

Candidates for dental implants

Whether you are missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, you can be a candidate for dental implants. The procedure does require there to be enough bone structure in order to support the implant placement. If you have bone deterioration, restorative procedures such as bone or soft tissue grafts may be necessary prior to receiving dental implants.

Dental implant is placed in the jawbone to replace any missing teeth. Your own bone integrates around the titanium body of the implant and then you restore it with an abutment and a crown so that you can function with it as a normal tooth. If you have a missing tooth the teeth will shift to try and close the space which will result in a bite that won't be biting properly and it effects other teeth as well. If you have a tooth that's been missing the bone will resorb, you'll have less height or width to the ridge of the bone and you'll have a defect in there. If you put an implanting it acts as the root form of the tooth and it preserves the bone height and width. So, the benefits of the implant is, you're taking care of that one empty space. So, you're not damaging any of the other adjacent teeth and you're able to clean and eat and function with it as a normal tooth. Here in our practice, we can do single implants or multiple implants in order to secure and screw in your dentures, to give you a good function as well as aesthetics. The fact that patients can eat things that they weren't able to do before or worry about dentures falling out to be able to smile confidently with prosthesis that’s fix them permanently makes all the difference in their in their lives.
