For those who are missing teeth, dental implants in Newport Beach, California, are a permanent, stable, and secure alternative to removable complete or partial dentures. Dental implants act as a replacement for both the roots and crowns of the teeth. Dr. Douglas Hauck will first surgically place your dental implant or titanium “root” into either the lower or upper jawbone. Following the surgery, the bone and implant will fuse together over a period of up to six months. Then you will return to our office to receive an implant restoration and complete the process. When the implant procedure is complete, you will have the beautiful, functional, and complete smile that you deserve.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants can:
- Replace your missing teeth
- Prevent the loss of facial volume
- Reduce or eliminate bite problems or joint pain caused by shifting teeth
- Enhance the beauty of your smile
- Restore your ability to speak, chew, and digest
- Lend support to a bridge or denture
The process of receiving your dental implant(s) will require multiple visits to Douglas Hauck DDS, Inc. over the course of several months. During the initial appointments, we will take digital X-rays and impressions of your teeth and jaw to help us determine how best to proceed. Then your implants will be surgically placed into the jawbone during a comfortable visit at the office. Once the bone and implant have fused together, you are ready for placement of the abutment or “post” that will hold the implant restoration in place. On top of this abutment, your implant restoration (aesthetically-pleasing crown, bridge, or denture) will be permanently secured for the best functional and cosmetic results possible.
