At Inland Empire Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, we offer dental implant solutions to help you reclaim a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Our experienced surgeons carry out each procedure with precision and care, ensuring lasting results that improve your quality of life in scenic Upland.

What Are Dental Implants?

  • Dental implants are small titanium posts that the surgeon implants into the jawbone
  • The titanium of the implants naturally integrates with your bone through osseointegration
  • This provides a strong and lasting foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges, or the All-on-4® treatment concept
  • Dental implants also support long-term oral health

Why Select Dental Implants over Other Options?

Dental implants are among the most widely chosen tooth replacement options. They are incredibly versatile, providing you with solutions whether you have one, several, or all of your teeth missing.

For single-tooth replacement, dental implants offer several benefits over dental bridges. They do not require the surgeon to prepare your natural teeth like they would for a crown or bridge, which keeps your natural teeth as safe and healthy as possible.

In full-arch replacement, dental implants provide significant improvements over traditional dentures. The All-on-4® treatment concept gives you a full mouth of stronger replacement teeth that deliver better long-term oral health.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Dental implants are versatile, but that does not mean they are necessarily the solution for everyone. You may require additional treatment or lifestyle changes if you have risk factors such as:

  • Current signs of gum disease
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Teeth grinding
  • Smoking and other high-risk activities

Other patients may require procedures such as bone grafting to prepare for implant placement.

Getting Started with Dental Implants

The first step to determining if dental implants are right for you is to visit Inland Empire Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons in Upland. We will carry out an evaluation to determine whether you are a candidate and if dental implants are the best treatment for your case.

We use the latest technology when planning your procedure. CBCT and 3Shape intraoral scanners provide high-resolution 3D imaging to evaluate your needs and plan every detail of your treatment.

Our surgeons can also handle other necessary procedures, such as tooth extraction or bone grafting.

Post-Op and Recovery Timeline

You may experience some soreness and other symptoms several days following your procedure, but you should return to normal by day three. Complete healing takes roughly four months, but you will not feel anything during that time.

Once you have healed completely and the implants have been integrated, you will receive the final replacement tooth or teeth that attach to the dental implant.

Why Should I Get an Implant Here?

Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure. Like any other surgical procedure, you want it handled by a team of surgeons with the necessary skills and experience. 

The team at Inland Empire Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons is highly experienced at handling all types of cases, including those with complex requirements and additional procedures, such as bone grafting. We use the latest technology to deliver exceptional results and a comfortable patient experience.

We strive to provide every patient with the best possible outcome and stand behind our quality work with a 5-year warranty on dental implant placements (restrictions apply).
