What Are Dental Implants?

The tooth restoration service of placing dental implants involves surgically placing a titanium screw (the implant) into the jawbone which then fuses with the bone and acts just like a regular tooth root. These make for a much stronger foundation to replace missing teeth. Dentures, for example, only address the upper portion of the teeth above the gum line, which does nothing to maintain the jawbone’s density, so it will gradually deteriorate over time, making the dentures fit poorly.

Once your dental implant in San Diego has been placed, the jawbone will eventually fuse with the surface of the screw and fuse with the implant in a process called osseointegration. Once ready, a connecting attachment that holds the crown to the implant is attached. The crown itself is the replacement tooth over the gum line, which will be color-matched so it is indistinguishable from other teeth.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mirkhan for many years. She is very kind, gentle and avoids as much discomfort as possible. She has given me back my smile and self-confidence by replacing the majority of my teeth with implants. My teeth look natural, healthy, white and I can eat anything I want. Thank you Dr. Mirkhan for giving me my life back.

    How New Technology Can Replace Implants in One Appointment

    You may be a good candidate for same-day implants if you need a tooth extraction or if you already have missing teeth but don’t have severe bone loss. Same-day implants are an attractive option for eligible patients, because it means they don’t have to leave our office with a missing tooth. Same-day tooth replacement can be utilized for just once single tooth replacement, a section of missing teeth, or for an entire arch.

    There are major benefits to dental implants in San Diego versus other types of tooth replacement options, mainly because they maintain the health of the jawbone as well as felling, looking, and acting just as natural teeth.

    Dental Implants FAQs

    Get Answers from a San Diego Implant Dentist

    Are your teeth missing, loose, chipped, or decayed? Do you find yourself shying away from smiling in photographs or experience trouble enjoying your favorite foods? If so, dental implants may be the effective and long-lasting solution you need to restore your smile.

    What is the process for getting a dental implant?

    Dental implants in San Diego are surgically implanted into your jawbone by Dr. Mirkhan, a credentialed dentist, fusing with your natural jawbone over time as you heal. Once bonded, a small connector is attached to the top of the implant to bond the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth. While this process traditionally takes several months to complete, modern immediate dental implant techniques allow some patients to have dental implants inserted in as little as one day, in one appointment, allowing them to heal quickly and move on without having to worry about a “toothless” look and without traveling to multiple offices.

    Can I go to any dentist for implants?

    Dental implants are highly sophisticated and complex devices that must be surgically and carefully inserted to avoid injury, complications, or even implant failure. For best results, it is vital you choose a dentist who is an implant expert with the proper certifications and training to perform your dental implants in San Diego.

    How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

    Since no two patients or their dental needs are exactly alike, the cost of dental implants will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed. Upon an initial examination and consultation, your dentist will be able to provide you with a treatment plan along with an estimated cost. Furthermore, many insurance companies have chosen to offer coverage for dental implants due to their long-term benefits over other forms of treatment.

    Are dental implants safe?

    Implants are a proven and safe treatment option for replacing missing teeth, with contemporary implants having been used throughout the dental industry for more than 30 years. According to a 2008 study by the American Association of Endodontists, dental implant procedures were found to have a 98% success rate.

    How long do dental implants last?

    Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.

    How painful is getting a dental implant?

    The discomfort during a dental implant procedure is typically well-managed with local anesthesia and post-operative pain medications, ensuring a comfortable experience for most patients.

    What is the best age for dental implants?

    Dental implants in San Diego can be placed once growth is complete, usually around the age of 18. However, there is no upper age limit, and suitability is determined on an individual basis.

    Who's the best candidate for dental implants?

    The ideal candidate for dental implants is someone with good oral health, sufficient jawbone density, and a commitment to maintaining oral hygiene to support the implant’s long-term success.

    Who should not get an implant?

    Patients with uncontrolled chronic conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, may not be suitable for dental implants. Smoking and certain medications can also affect the success of implants. However, candidacy for implants is determined on an individual basis.

    What are the 3 stages of dental implants?

    The three stages of dental implants are the placement of the implant fixture, the healing period known as osseointegration, and the attachment of the prosthetic tooth or crown.
