Our Long Beach implant dentist, Dr. John Cho, has years of experience in placing and restoring dental implants and can utilize this treatment to improve the beauty and function of your smile. If you are missing a tooth or have a tooth that is badly damaged, finding the right replacement is important for improving your overall smile. Dr. Cho’s implant services are designed to restore patients’ smiles for improved confidence in their appearances and a boost in the strength of their teeth, for a better quality of life.

Dental Implants: A Lasting Way to Repair your Smile

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root that is used to wholly restore teeth that were knocked out via accident or extracted due to damage. The root of the implant is made from titanium, which is compatible with bone in your jaw and helps prevent bone loss by actually integrating with surrounding tissue. In this, dental implants are unlike any other tooth replacement option and uniquely support overall oral health.

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures and fixed bridges, dental implants will not harm existing teeth or tissue and are completely independent. The cap or crown of the implant is made from sturdy, natural-looking ceramic and is made to blend in with the look and coloring of your existing teeth. While implants can replace single teeth, multiple implants can also be placed to support an entire row of lost teeth, stabilizing uncomfortable, loose dentures.

Implant Dentistry in Long Beach

Dr. Cho is happy to discuss options with patients who have any amount of missing or damaged teeth to see whether single implants, implant-supported bridges, or implant dentures are the right fit for your needs.

In general, you are a good candidate for implants if you have healthy gum tissue and bone density to support proper health and integration of your implant. While implants are among the most successful ways to replace teeth, it’s possible to hinder that success if you are experiencing the above dental health issues. In these cases, Dr. Cho provides pre-implant treatments to create optimal outcomes, including:

  • Bone graft
  • Extraction
  • Sinus Lift

As always, it is important to discuss your oral health and treatment plan with our doctor. The length of time needed to obtain a dental implant varies from patient to patient. The simplest procedure generally takes between three and six months. For patients who are good candidates to receive implants, the downtime is minimal. In most cases, patients can go back to work right after getting their dental implants in our Long Beach office.

Learn More about Implant Cost and Treatment Options

The cost of a dental implant is determined by several factors, such as the number of teeth to be replaced and whether other procedures, as described above, are required before the implant can be placed. Our office offers a payment plan, through CareCredit, to offset the upfront costs of your treatment. To learn more about how to replace missing or damaged teeth with dental implants, contact our Long Beach dental office or schedule a consultation online.
