At I-Rise Dental Boutique, our Del Mar, California team is pleased to provide kind, compassionate, and friendly care for new and returning patients in the community. The office is equipped with today’s state-of-the-art equipment, ensuring every patient has access to the care they need. When patients are struggling with tooth loss or extraction, replacement options need to be discussed to restore the best function and health of the smile. Dr. Anu Mohan and her team often recommend dental implant services for patients seeking a long-term solution for tooth loss.
Dr. Anu Mohan describes the dental implant as a titanium metal post placed into the jawbone through oral surgery. This post is where an abutment will be attached. The abutment is used for the restoration of the appliance and can be restored with various options, including dental crowns, dental bridges, or even full or complete dentures.
Many patients who have a healthy smile may benefit from dental implants. To be a proper candidate, you must have sufficient jawbone structure remaining after the tooth loss or extraction. Dental implants require bone for support. Without it, patients serious about obtaining dental implants will need to talk to our team about the possibility of undergoing bone grafting to rebuild the jawbone and prepare the area for an implant in the future. Dr. Anu Mohan will evaluate the smile using dental X-rays to decide if there is enough bone for successful placement.
The entire process, from beginning to end, might take several months, but the results will last a lifetime as long as patients maintain good oral health habits at home and visit the office regularly for cleanings and evaluations.
