Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the best solution for missing teeth. In fact, dental implants are just as strong as the teeth you were born with, and in some cases, even stronger.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are screws or posts that are surgically implanted in or on the jawbone. Implants are usually made from titanium and act as an artificial tooth root because of a process known as osteointegration. This process fuses the bone to the implant making it just as strong as a tooth root.

Can Everyone Smile with Implants?

While most people are excellent candidates for dental implants, people who use tobacco or people with serious gum disease may be better suited to dentures. In addition, people who suffer from certain systemic diseases and people who have a hard time healing may also fare better with another type of tooth replacement system.

Different Types of Dental Implants

Saddleback Dentistry in Laguna Hills offers, single, multiple and All on 4, or same day dental implants.

Single Implants

Single dental implants are the modern way to replace a conventional dental bridge. Dental implants are less invasive and are much less conservative than dental bridges because there is no tooth removal from the adjoining or abutment teeth.

Hybrid Dentures

Hybrid dentures in Laguna Hills are excellent for people who wear dentures and for people who have lost bone density. Unlike conventional dentures, hybrids are fixed. That means you can talk and chew without worrying about ill-fitting teeth. Best of all you can throw away your pastes and glues because they aren’t necessary anymore.

All on 4’s

All on 4’s are simply remarkable. In fact, some people can walk in with no teeth and walk out with a brand new set of beautiful, natural looking teeth. One of the best things about All on 4’s is that there is no need for bone grating in most cases. All on 4s also mean four screws or posts per arch as opposed to a single post per implant.
