Implant Dentistry: Best Replacement Treatment For Missing Teeth
Here in Lifetime Dental located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA we always strive to give the best possible options to our patients based on their needs. So if you have lost a tooth or two, we may recommend dental implants for a more natural-looking replacement teeth.
Dental implants are considered the best solution for missing teeth. An implant can provide a robust foundation for your replacement tooth. It looks like a screw made of titanium and it will be surgically implanted in the jaw bone to fuse with the bone tissue. If you are looking for a teeth replacement that can last a lifetime, you may want to consider dental implants.
A dental implant is basically a titanium screw that acts as an artificial tooth root that is drilled into the jawbone. It is then covered with a temporary crown to allow the bone around it to heal and fuse to the implant. Once that happens, a permanent crown that looks and feels like the rest of your natural teeth is placed and your replacement tooth is ready to use.
Although the process may seem tedious and complicated, the outcome will make everything worthwhile. You’ll have replacement teeth that look and feel natural, and are just as strong as your other healthy teeth. You’ll also be able to eat your favorite foods, speak more clearly and smile more confidently.

Implant Dentistry Procedures
Single Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are the best replacement solutions for those who have lost a single tooth, as it does not affect your other healthy teeth.
Multiple Teeth Replacement
For those who are missing multiple teeth, dental implants supported by bridges are a great solution. They offer the look and feel of your natural teeth.
Full Mouth Restoration
For those who have lost most or all of their teeth, a full mouth restoration using dental implants is a much better alternative to dentures. Unlike dentures, dental implant restorations need not be removed again and again and are far more comfortable and natural. We also offer sedation dentistry options to ensure that patients are comfortable and relaxed during the procedure.
Ridge augmentation is done for people who do not have enough natural bone tissue to support dental implants. This procedure rebuilds the bone and restores your natural jawline to provide a strong foundation for dental implants.
