Find out how dental implants can restore your smile after tooth loss.

Don’t let tooth loss have the final say when it comes to the health and appearance of your smile. Our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, restorative Elderly Couple With Dental Implantsdentist Dr. John Stockdale offers an amazing solution that both looks and functions just like a real tooth. This tooth replacement is known as a dental implant. Here’s how it works,

Placing the Implant

The implant itself is a small metal screw or post that is inserted into the jawbone where it will serve to replace your missing tooth’s roots. This surgery is minor and can be performed in about 30 minutes under the effects of local anesthesia. Before placing the implant our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, will map out precisely where the implant will need to be placed.

Healing and Osseointegration

Getting dental implants takes time, and some of that time involves allowing your body to heal itself and naturally fuse the implant and jawbone together. This natural fusion is called osseointegration. Once this occurs (over the course of 3-6 months) the screw is now a permanent part of the jawbone. With the proper care, implants offer a very high success rate and can last several decades.

Securing the Abutment

Depending on the type of implant that is placed, you may need to come in for another minor procedure so that we can attach a part known as an abutment to the top of the implant. The abutment is meant to connect the implant, which is under the gums and isn’t visible, with the false tooth (the visible component of the implant). In order to place the abutment a small incision will be made in the gums to reveal the top of the implant before securing the abutment on top.

Fitting the False Tooth

The last step is for our dentist to cement the dental crown onto the top of the abutment. The crown will be custom made based off measurements we will take of your mouth. Of course, if you are missing several teeth then we will place 2-4 implants along the arches of the jawbone to support multiple false teeth.

Renaissance Dental Care wants to make sure that you get the proper restorative dentistry you need after tooth loss. Call our Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dental office today to schedule a consultation with us.

Have you thought of the All-on-4 implant-supported hybrid dentures? Would you like to know more about this procedure from your Rancho Cucamonga, CA, dentist, Dr. John Stockdale?

More About All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures:

Losing teeth is never an easy ordeal. Losing an entire arch of teeth, top and/or bottom, due to trauma or severe decay that requires dental removal, takes a physical and emotional toll on a person. Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures can help take away some of this burden. The All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. You don't have to worry about them slipping while you eat and speak, and they prevent bone loss, which is vital in preventing sagging and/or drooping of your jaws.

How Do All-on-4 Implant Supported Hybrid Dentures Work:

The important thing to know about dental implants is that they replace missing tooth roots and anchor tooth replacements to your jawbone. Dental implants have dentures placed on them, so no one can see them. They also lie under the gum line, which prevents their visibility. Your Cucamonga dentist uses only Nobel Biocare Implants and components, which is a worldwide leader when it comes to implant technology, and one of the main developers of the All-on-4 technique.

The All-on-4 technique is reliable, but every user has unique conditions, which depends on their bone volume and bone density. You need to discuss your situation with Dr. Stockdale who will determine if this procedure is right for you. The goal is to provide you with a solution that works best for you and will ensure a healthier future.

All Procedures are performed by Dr. Stockdale at the Renaissance Dental Care office in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Just call the office at (909) 987-0040 today!

Are you missing most of your teeth? You don't need a dental implant for each one of your missing teeth. The All-On-4 procedure utilizes all-on-4four implants to replace all teeth on an upper or lower arch. Renaissance Dental Care, which is located in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, offers All-on-4 dental implants to their patients. Here are four ways All-On-4 implants can help you. 

1. Improve Your Appearance

The absence of teeth can ruin a stunning smile. All-on-4 dental implants can fill in the gaps in your smile, improve your appearance, and make you look years younger. Even one missing tooth can change the way your face looks and cause a sunken appearance. All-on-4 implants help prevent premature aging and facial sagging.

2. Enjoy Your Favorite Foods

If you are missing teeth, chewing can become very difficult. All-on-4 dental implants are strong, stable, and extremely durable. All-on-4 dental implants fit, feel, and function just like your own teeth. All-on-4 dental implants will allow you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.

3. Prevent Dental Issues

With All-on-4 implants, you will prevent dental issues associated with missing teeth. After you lose a tooth, the other teeth will begin to drift out of place, with the end result being crookedness, spaces, and misalignment. All-on-4 implants can prevent your remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

4. Improve Your Life

All-on-4 dental implants won't just improve your appearance; they will also elevate your quality of life. With All-on-4 implants, you will feel more confident when smiling and speaking with others. You will feel better. You will look better. You will have a renewed quality of life. Consult with a dentist in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, to find out if All-on-4 implants are right for you.

If you are missing all the teeth on your top or bottom arch, you are not alone. About 35 million Americans are missing all their teeth. denturesLuckily, replacement options for missing teeth are plentiful. With help from your Rancho Cuacamonga, CA dentist, Dr. John Stockdale at Renaissance Dental Care, you can have a brand new smile in no time and determine which replacement option is best for you.

All-on-4 vs. Traditional Dentures

Traditional Dentures: You are probably familiar with traditional dentures: a full arch of replacement teeth customized for you by a dental laboratory. Traditional dentures attach to your gumline using suction to stay in place. While dentures have come a long way in recent years, there is still a risk of them moving or falling out since they are not completely secured within the mouth. Traditional dentures are made specifically for your teeth to ensure the most natural appearance. Color, shape, size, length and width are all taken into account while designing your dentures. Traditional dentures require soaking every night while they are not in use. If the dentures dry out they lose their shape and become ill-fitting. This makes the soaking step crucial to the life of your dentures.

All-on-4 Dentures: This style of denture utilizes dental implant technology to anchor the denture into place. A dental implant is normally used to replace a tooth’s root and provide a solid foundation for a replacement tooth. Rather than using a single implant for each tooth, your Rancho Cucamonga dentist uses four implants to secure an All-on-4 into place. Over time, the implants integrate into the bone, providing the denture with a firm anchor. All-on-4 dentures eliminate the chance of the denture moving around or falling out. Additionally, All-on-4 dentures are non-removable, meaning their care is the same as your natural teeth. Simply brush twice daily and floss once. Also, be sure to schedule regular dental examinations and cleanings twice a year.
