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

I was approaching the extraction and implant with dread. To say I was stressed would be an understatement. However, it truly was a great experience. The entire staff was wonderful. Dr. Choi was very gentle and kind. They have your comfort level in mind from beginning to end. They even played my favorite music. I am healing very well and I am extremely happy. I would highly recommend Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons without any hesitation. A+++

Dr Zakhary and all the girls kept me so calm during my implant even though I had a panic attack! I had literally no pain afterwards either. Thanks so much!

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*
