Dental Implants in West Covina

Are you dealing with an uncomfortable missing tooth? A dental implant is a permanent, comfortable solution for replacing that missing tooth and restoring your smile.

At Dentist of West Covina, we'll help you restore that stunning smile with high-quality dental implants that improve your overall health and sense of well-being.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used in a treatment process that carefully places an artificial tooth root into the bone of your jaw. A prosthetic tooth is then attached to this implant to securely hold it in place. This new tooth system functions as naturally as the original tooth would.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

There are many positives about dental implants as a treatment for your oral health.

Do Dental Implants Look Natural?

Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. They specifically are designed to fuse with your jaw bone, meaning they function naturally as your original teeth.

Your smile is restored through the implantation of the artificial root and prosthetic tooth.

Are Dental Implants Permanent?

Dental implants are designed to fuse with the bone, meaning they are permanent. This makes them convenient and easy to care for, as you would with normal good oral hygiene.

Do Dental Implants Restore Normal Chewing And Speech?

Because dental implants are permanent and look and feel natural in your mouth, they can help restore your chewing and speech patterns to the former patterns before tooth loss.

They also help to preserve the structural integrity of your teeth, restoring a natural jawline, which, in turn, may help recover any face shape changes due to tooth loss.

Are Dental Implants Comfortable?

Because dental implants fuse with your bone, they feel natural and comfortable.

Do Dental Implants Improve Oral Health?

Dental implants improve your overall oral health. They don't require reducing other teeth, they don't interfere with the integrity of natural teeth or other appliances, and they improve jaw shape, thus improving chewing patterns.

Dental implants also help prevent periodontal disease that can be caused by bone loss.

Are Dental Implants Durable?

Implants are built to last. They will last many years, and, in fact, will last a lifetime if cared for properly.

How Well Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants generally have a success rate of 98% when properly placed and cared for by patients. They will last a lifetime.

Who Can Have Dental Implants?

Most healthy individuals able to undergo routine oral surgery are a candidate for dental implants. You need healthy gums and enough bone structure to support the implants and new prosthetic teeth.

If you are considering implants, we will happily consult with you to determine any pre-care that should be done to ensure a healthy procedure and lifelong health of your implants.

How Painful Is It To Get Dental Implants?

Local anesthesia is administered to the area surrounding the portion of the jaw where the implants will be placed. Most patients report that they have very little pain related to implants, though there will likely be a mild soreness post-procedure. You may wish to take over-the-counter pain medications for this soreness.

What Is The Cost For Dental Implants?

The cost of dental implants will be impacted by a few factors.

  • The number of missing teeth to be replaced
  • The number of prosthetic teeth
  • Material used for prosthetic teeth
  • Position of missing teeth to be replaced

What Is The Process For Getting Dental Implants?

If you are considering dental implants, the first step is coming into our state-of-the-art office for a consultation. You will receive x-rays and examination prior to the consultation to ensure an understanding of your needs.

If an implant is the right choice for your treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to use for constructing the implant properly.

A tiny screw will be placed in your jawbone. Over the next few months, the jawbone and screw will fuse together and create the foundation for your new prosthetic tooth. Once this fusion has completed, a new tooth will be created and affixed to the screw.
