Rebuild your Smile with Natural-looking Dental Implants
Don’t you hate it while enjoying lunch with your friends & family, only to have food particles get stuck in that gap where you had your tooth extracted a while back? And that’s not all. That unsightly gap mars your once beautiful smile, and you now smile less and less because you are self-conscious of your grin.
If you have had enough of your missing teeth, dental implants from I-Rise Dental are an excellent solution to fill that gap. Dr. Anu Mohan uses natural-looking dental implants to replace what trauma, gum disease, or decay has taken away.
The process of reviving your smile with dental implants
Dental implant treatment is done in several appointments over a couple of months. The first step of getting an implant is consultation with Dr. Mohan. We examine your mouth using dental x-rays & cutting edge 3D cone beam technology that uses 40% less radiation than industry average (we decided to invest in this state-of-the-art technology, keeping the patient’s well being in mind & because we truly stand by our motto “kind, compassionate, state of the art”). This helps evaluate dental tissues & structures & to ensure long term success & functionality of the implant treatment we offer.
Once your candidacy for dental implants has been approved, the rest of the procedure involves:
- Anesthesia: We administer local anesthesia for a pain-free procedure. However, if you have dental anxiety, you can discuss with Dr. Mohan our sedation options.
- Implant surgery: We use radiographs, and CT scans to identify the ideal implant position. Next, we surgically place a titanium fixture deep into the area. We then suture the surgical site to kick start the healing process.
- Healing: You need about 3-6 months for the implant post to fuse with the jawbone through osseointegration. Once healing takes place, the implant is locked in place to support the artificial tooth.
- Abutment placement: After healing, we perform minor surgery to install an abutment (connector), which attaches the implant post to the artificial tooth. Abutment surgery requires about two weeks of healing.
- Final restoration: Once your implant and abutment are all set, we take your bite impressions to fabricate a crown, bridge, or denture that looks and fits like your natural teeth. 80% of the time; we use digital impressions for your convenience.
While dental implant treatment takes several months, most patients find it well worth the time and cost. A dental implant doesn’t feel like a replacement — it functions, feels, and looks like your natural teeth.
Dental implants at I-Rise Dental - Dr. Anu Mohan
What is a dental implant?
Hello everybody, this is Dr. Mohan here from sunny San Diego. Welcome to my practice I-Rise Dental. We are located here in Del Mar, CA.
Today I am going to talk to you about dental implants. The dental implant is a fixture made up of a treated metal alloy.
It’s a titanium zirconia alloy that’s placed in your bones. The dental implant looks like a little screw post that goes into your bone. What goes on top of it is called the crown.
Who is an ideal candidate for a dental implant?
A dental implant is for anyone who’s missing a tooth. That said, it depends on your age or any medical conditions.
We will not recommend a dental implant on a growing child because the jaw is still growing, and we would not know where the dental implant ends after the growth is done.
Why should someone choose a dental implant?
If you are missing a tooth, we will offer dental implants as a first option because it helps the bone maintain its integrity and density throughout.
It also helps with not disturbing the adjacent teeth. So if you can afford a dental implant, you are doing great service to your dental health and the bone you have left.
Dental implants would be an ideal solution for missing teeth in the long term and it is in the bone, so it’s not going anywhere.
The position is not changing, so it helps you to maintain the dental integrity, function, and mastication of the way the teeth bite.
Are dental implants safe in the long run?
As dentists, we take absolute caution and care while we place a dental implant. The environment is sterile; everything we touch is sterile because we don’t touch anything outside the field.
The dental implant itself is treated many times to ensure they are sterile, and the outside of the dental fixture has properties that will ensure it’s not oxidized.
But after this, it is your responsibility as a patient at home to maintain the area by brushing, flossing and making sure you clean it well like your life depends on it.
Because if any food, debris, plaque, calculus, or tartar gets stuck around the dental implant, you are looking into an infection we call Peri-Implantitis.
Down the road, it can lead to failure depending on how much it has not been taken care of. So it depends upon you as a person how much maintenance you can do at home and how long your implant lasts with success.
