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.

Thank you for the great care you provided during my implant (post) surgical procedure. As most patients usually are I was nervous about the procedure. But I discovered I did not need to be worried at all. Dr. Dudziak and his crew did a tremendous job. My local anesthesia was not painful and I had no pain at all during the procedure. I appreciated that my medications had been ordered before the procedure so I did not have to stop at the pharmacy on the way home. I am recovering fast. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised when I returned home that within about 15 minutes I received a lovely vase of flowers from Dr, Dudziak and Dr. Chapman DDS!! Great care and great services. Thank you so much!

I am very happy with the treatment I received at IEOMFS. The staff are very professional, available for questions and timely in their response to those questions. This was my first experience with the dental implant procedure and Dr. Dudziak was very clear in his explanation of the procedure and my options. I was obviously anxious about the procedure but Dr. Dudziak's explanations were straightforward and reassuring. Despite my anxiety, I experienced virtually no pain or discomfort and I am very pleased with the result. I would highly recommend Dr. Dudziak and IEOMS

Dr. Zakhary is most adept and skillful in his dental profession; extremely friendly, likeable, and shows deep concern for patient's well-being; most willing to answer patient's questions; expertly describes and explains with clarity procedures to be performed. Ladies of the office staff are extremely helpful, congenial, and just lovely to interact with; what a beautiful crew! And Jose is quite the affable gentleman!

Dr. Hicke has performed implant surgery on me previously and each time I have suffered very little pain and swelling. He even calls in person to see how you're recovering. He's an outstanding oral surgeon.

The staff makes you feel very comfortable, especially since the dentist or oral surgeon is practically the LAST place anyone wants to be! Both friendly and professional. I hope I am finished with oral surgery but if I had to have other procedures I would request Dr. Dudziak.

Dr. Dudziak and staff are amazing! Everyone from the receptionist to the surgical techs to the doctor and everyone in between (don’t know all of their titles) are friendly and kind and most of all informative. In addition, I have had this same implant surgery twice before at different offices and this office is by far the best. Pain level following was much lower and healing time several months faster. (And I’m not as young either so this is saying a lot!) Their follow up and availability to answer questions is top rate and I wouldn’t go anywhere else now. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Dudziak! I might add that I have a tremendous fear of any type of dental work and Dr. Dudziak’s compassion, coupled with his great sense of humor is refreshing!
