Are you looking for a reliable and cost-effective way to replace your missing teeth in Orange County, California? Look no further than Laguna Dental Center, where patients can get state-of-the-art dental implants that look and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. They are made of titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone and act as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. The implant is then topped with a dental crown, bridge, or denture to complete the restoration.
The two most common types of dental implants are endosteal and subperiosteal implants. Endosteal implants are placed directly into the jawbone and are the most common type of implant. Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the jawbone and are used when there is not enough bone density for endosteal implants. Full mouth dental implants can be used to replace either the upper or lower arch of teeth.
For upper arch replacement, four strategically placed implants are used to secure an implant-supported denture. For lower arch arthroplasty, four implants are also used to secure an implant-supported denture. A full oral restoration is used to replace both the upper and lower rows of teeth, requiring eight dental implants in total. At Laguna Dental Center, each stage of the procedure is carefully planned and cross-implemented to create full-arch restorations that fit tightly to each set of four dental implants.
The result is a new set of replacement teeth that exceeds the functionality of traditional dentures and offers a solid, natural-looking alternative to full restoration with individual dental implants. After the procedure, patients may experience some pain where the implants merged with the jawbone. This is normal and can often be easily controlled by taking over-the-counter pain relievers. After a few days, any pain or discomfort should go away. The cost of full mouth dental implants in Orange County can vary depending on the type of implant chosen and the complexity of the procedure. However, there are numerous patient financing options and payment plans available that make dental implants more affordable than ever before. Mini dental implants also have a number of benefits, such as less invasive surgery, the possibility of being performed without bone grafts, a lower need for jaw density, the possibility of being placed in smaller areas of the mouth, a faster recovery period, a lower treatment cost, a reduced risk of facial collapse, faster results, and less painful placement and repair. At Laguna Dental Center, we understand how important it is to have a healthy smile that you can be proud of.
