Dental Implants

A Lasting Foundation

Huntington Beach Dental Implants at Olive Dental Group

Dental implants are an innovative, long-term solution for individuals with sound overall oral health who have experienced tooth loss as a result of periodontal disease, injury, or other causes. In contrast to conventional bridgework, dental implants stand out as a tooth-preserving choice, as they eliminate the need for support from adjacent teeth, showcasing their technologically advanced yet minimally invasive nature. Respected for their depth of experience and skillful techniques, our dental team offers patients from Huntington Beach, Westminster, Garden Grove, and beyond exceptional implant care to promote lasting oral health and dazzling new confidence.

Ease, Beauty, and Confidence

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed in the jawbone to serve as the anchor for permanent prosthetic crowns to replace missing teeth. They can restore single or multiple teeth without impacting the teeth on either side. They can also be used to stabilize bridgework or enhance denture stability and comfort.

There are two primary categories of dental implants: endosteal and subperiosteal. The most common is endosteal implants, which are placed into the jawbone to serve as a robust foundation for one or more prosthetic teeth. They are typically recommended as an alternative to bridges or removable dentures. On the other hand, subperiosteal implants are positioned atop the jawbone. A metal framework with posts extends through the gum to support the prosthesis. This type of implant is particularly suitable for individuals who are unable to comfortably wear traditional dentures and have limited bone height.

Dependable Results

What are the benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants boast such a lifelike look and sensation that you might even forget about your former tooth loss. As these implants fuse with your bone structure, they safeguard against the bone deterioration and gum recession often linked with dentures and bridges. This preserves more of your natural teeth, which translates to significant, lasting benefits for your oral health. You can once again converse and eat with ease and self-assurance. The concerns of denture misplacement and the use of messy adhesives become things of the past. Dental implants exhibit a remarkably consistent success rate, making them an exceptional choice for tooth replacement.

Make Tooth Loss a Distant Memory

Your Dental Implants Procedure

We will start by conducting a comprehensive evaluation of your oral health, including X-rays and scans, to determine where the implants should be placed. During the surgery, we carefully position the implant post(s) into your jawbone, creating an artificial tooth root. Over the next few months, these implants fuse with your bone through a process known as osseointegration. Once this integration is successful, we attach an abutment to the implant, which acts as a connector between the implant and the final restoration. Lastly, a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is secured to the abutment, effectively restoring the appearance and function of your missing teeth.

Depending on your case, your treatment plan could involve single tooth replacement, multiple tooth replacement, or complete tooth replacement to restore your entire smile. In some cases, you may need to have sinus augmentation to create a more conducive environment for implant placement or ridge modification to augment bone tissue before implant placement.

Dental Health Starts Here

Dental Implants Recovery and Aftercare

Throughout the entire process, proper oral hygiene, regular follow-up appointments, and adherence to post-operative guidelines are crucial for ensuring successful healing and the long-term success of your dental implants.

A Bright Future for Your Smile

Dental Implants Results

As you're aware, maintaining your natural teeth necessitates diligent oral care at home and regular visits to the dentist. Similarly, dental implants resemble your natural teeth and demand comparable attention. To ensure the cleanliness and prevention of plaque buildup on your implant, the practices of brushing and flossing remain essential.

Dental Implants Frequently Asked Questions

Determining your candidacy for dental implants will start with a comprehensive assessment of your oral health and dental structures. Generally, individuals with healthy gums and adequate bone density are prime candidates for dental implants. Factors such as medical history, oral health, bone structure, and personal preferences will all contribute to the decision. We will evaluate your unique situation to recommend the most suitable treatment plan to meet your needs.

The recovery period after dental implant surgery typically lasts around 1 to 2 weeks for initial discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Osseointegration, the process of implant fusion with the bone, can take several months. The entire implant process, from surgery to final restoration, usually spans several months to a year, varying based on factors like your healing rate and the complexity of the procedure. We will guide you through post-operative care and monitor your progress for the best results.

According to Forbes, the average cost of a single implant in 2023 is between $3,000 and $4,500. The cost of dental implants varies based on the number of implants needed, the type of restoration (crown, bridge, or denture), your geographic location, and any other procedures performed, like bone augmentation or sinus lifts. There may be additional costs for X-rays, anesthesia, and follow-up appointments. Dental insurance coverage for implants varies. It's crucial to consult with our office to get a personalized estimate and explore financing options to fit your budget.
