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

Very High Credentials, Excellent treatment and professionalism. I did not need anesthesia, just a local by my choice. I can’t say that I felt any pain. Just a very slight prick with injection of pain medication. This is the day after and I have no swelling or bruising. Not even requiring pain relievers. I am pleasantly surprised

Everything about my experience was top notch! I spent a lot of time researching oral surgeons before I made my appointment. I was very apprehensive on the day of surgery. Woke up to a delicious smoothie and no pain. Received a lovely bouquet of flowers today! 5 * out of 5*

From start to finish, I felt I was in good care with Dr. Dudziak and the entire staff. I would highly recommend dental implant work or any other dental procedure at this office. I will definitely return should I need any type of work done in the future. Thank you all so much, and the flowers were such a sweet gesture!

Because, thanks to my "physiology," a bone graft for a denture implant didn't "take," Dr. Dudziak recommended an implant on my sinus on the side where the original implant was not successful. I guess to balance the stress-bearing load and make the implant more likely to be successful, Dr. Dudziak offered to also put a sinus implant on the other side. I appreciated how thoughtful and careful Dr. Dudziak was, but also the fact that he didn't charge me for this extra surgery (necessitated not by anything he did but by how my body responded). Dr. Dudziak's explanations were very clear. His staff very courteous and helpful.
