If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, Dr. Edward Moon may recommend dental implants in Mission Viejo, California. Dental implants are made up of a titanium implant post, a dental restoration, and an abutment. The implant post is designed to become a part of your jawbone. Because of this, dental implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, Edward Moon, DDS offers a variety of dental implant treatments to help restore the beauty and functionality of your smile.
Dental Implant Restorations
This treatment is for patients who are only missing one or a few teeth. After the dental implant post is placed and any required recovery time has passed, the implant is restored with a dental crown. This replaces individual teeth so that they can feel and function like natural teeth.
When a patient is missing multiple permanent teeth, single implants are not the only option. Less implants can be placed and connected and restored with a dental bridge. An implant-supported bridge is a great way to restore multiple teeth with a sturdy restoration.
If a patient is missing a full arch of teeth, All-on-4® implants may be recommended. Our advanced techniques in implant dentistry allow us to place just four dental implants to support an entire arch of teeth. A denture is attached to the four implants for a dental restoration that will not slip when you eat or speak.
