Dental Implants Irvine

Dental Implants Irvine CA Thousands of people live with missing teeth – lisping, avoiding favorite foods, and hiding smiles. They may have been dissatisfied with bridges, partial dentures, or full dentures. While those remain sound dental solutions for some patients, dental implants give Irvine area residents a long-term solution to tooth loss.

Multiple applications

The most common use for implant technology is replacement of a single missing tooth. Dr. David Son handles all phases of planning, placement, and restoration on-site:
  • Thorough examination and diagnostics to determine if you are a good candidate for an implant.
  • Panoramic imaging to ensure a precise treatment plan.
  • Brief oral surgery in which the implant is inserted into the jaw, allowing bone to fuse solidly with it over time.
  • The implant is later topped with a biocompatible non-metal crown for natural appearance and potentially a lifetime of restored chewing function.
Dr. Son also offers immediate implants. With this specialized technique, the implant can be “loaded” with a crown right away, so you don’t have to go a day without a tooth.

Multiple teeth can be replaced with implants, and implants can be used to anchor a dental bridge. Just a few carefully-placed implants provide an incredible level of stability to dramatically improve function of a full denture. In any of these situations, the implant acts as a substitute tooth root, helping to keep facial bone strong.

Body harmony

Dr. Son recognizes that your body chemistry is totally unique. Incompatible dental restorations can cause widespread health issues. Before placing implants, he performs materials testing, a method of determining which of the many available materials is best suited to your nature. While titanium dental implants are the conventional choice, Dr. Son often recommends zirconia as a healthy, non-metal option.
