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

To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.

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

My experience with your office has been wonderful from being greeted at the front desk to departure at the end. The interface with Dr. Jensen last year, and with the recent experience with Dr. Matt has been great with their humor, let's get down to it, rock and roll, sense of humor, and professionalism. The interface with them is very short and sweet. The majority of my experience, in time, has been with Gabby. She is by far, one of the most professional assistants i have come across. Her humor, sense of care, the calming of nerves, helping with both the before and after care. The professionalism and the kindness of the whole office just has a very nice aura and ambiance for a place an individual does not really want to be at.

Dr. Dudziak and his staff went above and beyond with their care. They are always friendly and accommodating on every visit. After my implant surgery they had a smoothie for me, realizing I had not eaten in a very long time. It was the best smoothie I had ever tasted. The next day at about 11am I received a lovely flower arrangement thanking me for my business. Who does that? I also received a phone call to make sure I was doing okay. Impressive and sincere are the words to describe these folks. Thank you.

Dr. Bruce Hicke is very experienced with dental implants and extremely conscientious. I am very thankful my dentist, Dr. Beck, recommended I go to Dr. Hicke. Dr. Hicke takes his work & patient care very seriously as he called me after I had the tooth extracted and again after the implant was inserted. I have had at least 5 other surgeries in my lifetime and when I did receive a call to find out how I was doing it was either a nurse or office staff. Dr. Hicke takes the time to call personally and inquire about his patients and even if the patient tells him they are fine he still wants the patient to return in a week or two after the surgery to be certain the patient is healing correctly. He never makes the patient feel rushed and is willing to give the patient all the time needed to insure the patient understands. Dr. Hicke is highly professional and compentent & I would strongly recommend his services to everyone.

This is by far one of the most professional Dental Offices I have ever had the pleasure to use in all of my MANY years of going to Dentists. They really made me feel like part of the family and was ready to help me in every way. The THANK YOU CARD was such a nice gesture. Throughout my whole implant procedure Dr. Dudziak made me feel at ease. The house plant was such a nice gift and it made me feel they really care about their patients. FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY.

I have been hesitating getting an implant done and after this visit, I do not know why. I felt like I was at a spa getting a facial treatment not oral surgery. The staff was extremely kind, informative, and courteous during the entire process. I was very relaxed during the entire procedure as well. This staff rocks! .After my procedure, the staff took very good care of me and made sure I had all the directions and aftercare necessities. They even supplied me with a smoothie, chap-stick, a convenient to go cup and a thoughtful thank you card. As if that was not enough, the next day as I rest at home, I was surprised by a beautiful bouquet of flowers to brighten my day! I highly recommend the Upland office! They take customer care to a whole new level and the expertise of Dr. Dudziak can calm any fears and concerns.

Curing the past ten years I have had extensive dental work performed by Dr. M. Jensen and his staff. In particular I would like to identify Dr. Jensen and his surgical assistant Gabby. I couldn't have been in better hands or received any better treatment. These two people , in particular, are true professionals. Thanks again for all of your help and treatment.

Back in October, my dentist, Dr.Chapman referred me to see Dr. Dudziak for an extraction and implant... Dr.Dudziak was so friendly and knowledgeable, I instantly trusted his skills. The Upland staff is amazing and beyond friendly! My first surgery, my tooth extraction, I was super nervous but everyone made me feel relaxed and calm. I was well taken care of, during and after the surgery! I even got a phone call the next day, seeing how I was feeling. I just had my second surgery, putting the implant in, and again, exceptional service!! I love it here and would highly recommend Dr. Dudziak and his staff, if you ever need Oral Surgery!
