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

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 know most folks hate going to the dentist/oral surgeon but Dr Dudziak and his office staff are truly amazing. Gloria in the office is so helpful and knowledgeable and George was also very friendly and went out of his way to make sure I was feeling OK after my oral surgery. This office is so different from my past experiences and they really care about their patients. The receptionists always greet with a smile and friendly hello.Thanks so much for your great customer service!

Dental care was excellent. I was tickled in being able to choose a smoothie. Fantastic job. I hadn't expected that. You could hardly tell on my second operation that surgery was even done. There was no bruised look. My mouth is healing rather quickly. A coworker of mine was really impressed. Her daughter is going to have her wisdom teeth pulled out. She asked who I went to and I told her and gave her the phone number. I want to thank to thank you for the beautiful flowers and the movie tickets. The tickets will be put to good use. And the flowers lasted a week and a half.

I'm not one to write reviews however the excellent care I received and the all the staff (Lizzy, Valerie, Gabby, Maryanne) and everyone there deserve a solid 10 stars for their professionalism, smiles, and making you feel like a friend not a patient. I've been to the office several times and each time they were always happy, friendly, smiles all around!! I will ONLY go here for my oral surgery needs and will definitely refer all my friends and family here for any oral surgery needs. Dr. Jensen is beyond wonderful (totally love him) !! and Dr. Dudziak is also very good. Thanks to all in the office!!

There are no words to adequately describe the extraordinary care provided by Dr. Matthew Dudziak and his fine staff. The level of skill, knowledge, attention to every aspect of the surgery, the fine explanations, the personal attention, and all the follow up is absolutely first rate. I feel so extremely fortunate to have been referred to him and I am so grateful to him for being such an amazing physician and person.

The staff was so friendly and knowledgeable of all my questions and Dr. Jensen was an excellent Dr. I didn't even feel the I.V. needle go in my hand. They made a very delicious green smoothy after surgery and gave a reusable cup to take home. They gave a thank you card upon leaving and two movie tickets as a thank you. I am the one who wants to thank them for this, not so scary experience after all.

Was referred by Dr Mitoma, First time implants as method of treatment, felt very comfortable with the procedure and information on form of payment as I do not have dental insurance, used CareCredit. I would recommend to anyone that was needing to have implant surgery. I went to dental school to become a dental assistant and I am aware of the difference between a dentist that advertises with coupons and this type of dental office.

There are not words to describe the fabulous care I have had with Dr. Matthew Dudziak and his excellent staff, both at the Rancho Cucamonga office and the Upland Office. I feel so fortunate that I was referred to him by my primary dentist, Dr. Harry Brown. There are so many factors in Dental Implant Surgery and the level of intelligence, competence, knowledge and skill, that Dr Dudziak possesses is incredible. In addition, he is a very fine person. I always feel comfortable, well- informed and cared-for. I can't imagine a finer Oral Surgeon anywhere.

Dr. Dudziak extracted my tooth and installed an implant, this procedure was performed over several months and he went above and beyond anwering all my questions. He saw me after hours when I became concerned about the implant security, turns out it was just a slightly loose temporary covering of the implant, as I recall there was no additional charge for this visit. I am very pleased with the results and have had no problems, I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Dudziak and would highly recommend him to family and friends.
