Why You Should Replace Missing Teeth with Implants

While traditional restorations restore minor function, only dental implants provide a comprehensive solution to tooth loss. The loss of even one tooth can negatively affect both your health and appearance, starting with resorption. Your jawbone needs to be stimulated by a full set of teeth to maintain a healthy structure; otherwise, your jaw will begin to shrink and leave you with a prematurely aged aesthetic.

Dental implants slow down this process and allow you to enjoy full function without having to worry about loose-fitting prosthetics. Whether you need to replace one tooth or several, dental implants renew your oral health and allow you the chance to start fresh with new teeth. And, unlike traditional restorations, implant-supported prosthetics do not require the alteration of surrounding teeth. With implants, you preserve more of your original smile.

Implant Placement in Newport Beach

Dr. Chu utilizes state-of-the-art technology to both plan and perform effective treatments. During the initial consultation, Dr. Chu will thoroughly analyze your oral anatomy, checking the current health of your jawbone and gum tissue before declaring you an immediate candidate for placement. The procedure itself is surgically guided thanks to our advanced instruments, which further guarantees accuracy and comfort during implant placement.

Titanium posts generally take three to six months to completely heal. Once your implants have fully integrated, Dr. Chu invites you back to our practice for placement of your final restorations. We collaborate with a trusted local lab that produces realistic and durable implant restorations, including crowns, bridges, and overdentures. They use a variety of materials based on your specifications, including porcelain and zirconia. 

For patients with less than ideal jawbone structure, Dr. Chu can perform the All-on-4 implant procedure. This treatment utilizes existing bone to support four posts in each arch. This variant of the procedure is especially beneficial to patients who require dentures to improve stability and function.
