Dental Implants: the Gold Standard in Restoration

While traditional bridges and dentures can provide immediate relief following tooth loss or extraction, success with these options is fairly temporary. Over time, these traditional restorations can wear down supporting tissue and teeth, increasing the risk that more restorations will be needed in the future. As these teeth and tissue become worn and irritated, patients are more likely to experience teeth infections and periodontal disease. Normal wear can also quickly erode the function of bridges and dentures, requiring frequent replacement and increasing the long-term costs that come with traditional restorations.

Dental implants are self-supporting dental restorations. Rather than being secured to neighboring teeth for support, implants are surgically placed into jaw bone, becoming a permanent part of the dentition and leaving healthy neighboring teeth intact. 
Surgical placement of the implant makes this treatment option ideal for a number of reasons. First, implants help stimulate bone regeneration, preserving the structure and shape of the jaw and face. For patients with compromised or deteriorated bone structure as a result of long-term tooth loss, periodontal disease, or dental abscess, the placement of dental implants helps prevent additional tooth loss while reinforcing bone strength. Since implants are designed to mimic natural teeth, they also serve as an anchor for neighboring teeth and prevent any shifts in bite position. 

Implants are also exceptionally versatile. For individuals with extensive tooth loss, multi-unit restorations can be supported on strategically placed dental implants. Rather than having to deal with loose, uncomfortable dentures or the damage caused by fixed bridges, eligible patients can enjoy the security of implants and the full coverage of a larger restoration. 

Implant Options at Mesa Ridge Dental 

At our Fountain Valley dental practice, implant dentists Dr. Ranta and Dr. Reposa offer comprehensive implant placement and restoration all in one location. 

Once we’ve determined a patient is a candidate for dental implants, we conduct an in-depth evaluation of their smile to determine the most strategic placement for implants as well as identify which implant restoration option best suits their needs. Since every restoration case is unique, Mesa Ridge Dental offers a number of implant-supported restoration options, including:

  • Crowns
  • Bridges and Partial Dentures
  • Snap-on and Fixed Dentures

In some instances where patients do not have sufficient bone structure or are looking to secure existing dentures or bridges, mini dental implants can be used to successfully secure your restoration. Same day dental implants are also available for certain eligible patients with sufficient bone structure and healthy dentitions.
