Whether you have lost one tooth or several, your self-confidence and oral health will suffer. You may be feeling self-conscious when you smile, and your surrounding teeth might shift out of place if the gap is left untreated.

Dr. Howard Glassman and Dr. Peter Nghiem at Phillips Ranch - Family & Cosmetic Dentistry are here to help you restore your healthy, confident smile with our dental implant restorations! We have helped many patients in Diamond Bar, California and the neighboring communities who have lost teeth restore their smile with dental implants.

Dental implants are an excellent option for missing teeth. They are permanent tooth replacements for one or more or even all of your teeth, depending on your situation. Implants are securely “planted” in the jawbone by a biocompatible titanium screw where the missing tooth was located. This screw acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely. While the surgical site is healing, the jawbone slowly fuses to the titanium screw.

Once the implant site is healed and the implant securely in place, a tooth will be attached to the post. Because the type of dental restoration depends on how many teeth are being replaced, you may receive a custom-made complete or partial denture, a bridge or a dental crown.

Finally, your dentist, Dr. Howard Glassman or Dr. Peter Nghiem will make sure that your implant is both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing so that it blends in with your smile seamlessly.
