What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution restoring missing or damaged teeth from root to crown. It's a surgical procedure using your jawbone as a sturdy foundation to ensure the results are secure, natural-looking, and functional. Dental implants are comprised of three components:

  • The Post
  • The Abutment
  • The Tooth Restoration

Our Dental Implant Process

During your initial appointment, we will work to confirm you're a good candidate for the procedure by assessing your oral health condition using CBCT scanning technology. We will use these digital images to plan an efficient strategy for the placement of your dental implants.

The treatment begins with our dentists placing the implant post into the jawbone, which is made from body-safe materials like titanium. Next, the abutment is attached to the post, and the natural-looking restoration is placed to look appealing and function seamlessly with the smile.


Dental Implant Pretreatment Options

If our team discovers that pretreatments must be performed before the surgery can be successful, we will work with you to resolve these problems as best we can. Our preliminary treatments to help you prepare for implant surgery, include:

Extractions: If a tooth is beyond repair, we can carefully remove it to create room for the dental implant. Our team performs careful and precise extractions, working hard to preserve your natural teeth before resorting to removal.

Bone Grafting: For the dental implant procedure to be successful and retain durability, your jawbone must be healthy and strong. If your jawbone is too thin or weak, the implant post won't successfully bond. If the bone doesn't meet our requirements, we can provide bone grafting procedures. Bone grafting involves transplanting a small amount of bone to your upper or lower jaw, helping to increase the volume so the implant post has a sturdy foundation.

Sinus Lifts: We can provide sinus lift surgery before we begin the dental implant procedure. This moves or lifts the sinus membrane upward to help make room in the upper jaw for the placement of bone, ultimately helping to better secure the dental implant for the long term.

Dental Implant FAQs

At Singing Hills Dentistry San Diego, we want to provide you with as much information as possible about the procedure, materials we use, and aftercare tips. Some frequently asked questions we receive about dental implants include:

How many teeth can you replace with dental implants?

We provide custom-made crowns crafted in a lab which will restore a single tooth. If you need three teeth replaced in a row, we can position a convenient dental bridge, which uses two implant posts to place three restorations, one being suspended in the middle. Our practice also provides implant-supported full or partial dentures, which require a varying number of implant posts and will replace a segment or a full arch of missing teeth and the surrounding tissue.

Yes. We will leverage our innovative techniques and advanced technology to ensure your dental implant and surrounding gum tissue is consistent and natural-looking in the context of your smile. We offer crown lengthening procedures using a dental laser to contour the gums to match the surrounding tissue ensuring the entire area is compatible with the rest of your natural oral structure.

The implant posts are placed into the jawbone permanently. With regular care and routine checkups, the restorations can last ten years or more but may eventually need replacing due to damage or normal wear. Fortunately, replacing the restorations is a fairly easy process and you won't need further surgery.
