Dental Implants

Permanent Tooth Replacement in Rancho Cucamonga

Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry and how we replace teeth. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a 2 part system that requires a 2 doctor approach involving your oral surgeon and restorative dentist. The surgeon places the titanium root into your jaw bone. After a period of healing and integration into the bone, the tooth crown gets placed on the implant. Dental implants can replace 1 tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth. The number of implants required depends on your restorative plan.

If you are one of the many people in the Rancho Cucamonga area living with missing teeth, call us to schedule your appointment!

Dental Implants Presentation

The Surgical Procedure

The placement of dental implants can involve multiple surgical procedures, depending on your needs. For example, we may need to extract teeth or create a good foundation for the implant with bone grafting prior to implant placement. The actual placement of the implant may involve 1 or 2 surgeries. The first surgery involves placing the titanium screw into your jaw bone. This can be performed with maximal comfort under IV sedation or anesthesia. After a period of healing, the implant will be uncovered in a second, minor soft tissue procedure. Sometimes, the second procedure is not needed. While you are healing, a temporary replacement for that tooth can be provided. This temporary tooth or teeth can be attached to the implant itself, or a removable option. Most patients experience minimal disruption in their daily life. The procedure is not particularly traumatic nor painful in recovery.

Technological Advances

Using the most recent advances in 3D imagingDr. Dudziak, Dr. Choi, Dr. Hicke and Dr. Zakhary are able to virtually plan your case on the computer to accurately look at your bone, nerves and other neighboring structures. The plan is then transferred to your jaw with the use of surgical guides. We also have the ability to digitally scan your teeth using our 3D Itero intraoral scanner and create your new tooth

Dr. Zakhary and staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and eased my fears. The procedure went smoothly and I enjoyed the smoothie that was waiting for me when it was over. I received beautiful flowers later that day, and that really showed how caring Dr. Zakhary and his staff really are. Thank you again

My experience at Inland Empire Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons in Upland was outstanding. I had a total of four teeth removed from failed root canals, bone grafts and three dental implants placed. The staff was professional and courteous at all times. Dr. Dudziak explained all the procedures and answered all my questions (as a very nervous patient, i had many). It has been over a year since I began treatment and so far everything looks great. I would highly recommend this office if you need a highly skilled surgeon and want to be treated with respect by a professional staff. Thank you Sandi and Marianne for all your assistance! I live 37 miles away and I would certainly return if needed.

Dr. Choi and the staff were outstanding. From beginning to end the staff did an amazing job taking care of my dental implant surgery. Dr. Choi is by far the best Dr. there is. I was expecting tremendous pain post surgery but the procedure went as well as it could have and recovery had minimal if any pain at all. Overall, everything went well and the staff was professional and courteous throughout.

OK, five stars in every category seems overly gushing, but they deserve it! Dr. Dudziak really knows his stuff, the staff is top-notch, the tech they have is nothing short of miraculous. Especially the Shape3D tech. I was so amazed I did a little research and as a retired NASA nurd I can think of a myriad number of uses for this device. Well done!

I came in for follow up treatment of my dental implant. Once again, the staff and Dr. Dudziak were great. If anyone can reduce the stress and anxiety of surgical procedures, these wonderful people can. They are kind, efficient and thoughtful of your experience from the moment you enter the door. Thank you to all.

All my service was personal, and professional, from everyone I had contact with, in this office. And Sang was always quick and friendly, any time I had a question. And because of this, she made this an easy process for me. And doctor Choi was just as friendly, as he was professional, and I always felt safe, in his hands.
