A dental practice that offers implants for replacing missing teeth
Dental implants are a popular solution for patients who have experienced tooth loss or extraction. Dr. Uday Shah of Sunny Family Dental in Chino Hills, California, highly recommends this option for many of his patients who require replacing missing teeth. This restoration method has many benefits that make it the most advantageous of tooth replacement options, including dentures and bridges.
What is a dental implant?
Dr. Uday Shah describes the dental implant as a tooth root replacement option. The implant is made of a titanium post that is put into the jawbone. It can replace one or more teeth depending on how the restoration above the gum line is restored. A dental crown can replace a single tooth, while an implant-supported denture can replace all the teeth in the dental arch. Patients are evaluated during a consultation appointment to ensure they are a good candidate for a dental implant before pursuing it further.
Why do patients choose dental implants?
Our team may suggest the benefits of dental implants to patients looking to replace one or more teeth. Some of the advantages of a dental implant include:
- Natural appearance
- Bone maintenance
- Ease of care
- Implants are closest to natural teeth
- Implant is made of metal and crown porcelain No caries
Why are dental implants recommended in many situations?
There are consequences that are associated with tooth loss. When a tooth is extracted or lost, the surrounding bone may shrink in a process known as bone resorption. That can cause existing teeth to become loose. Maintaining bone is incredibly important, and dental implants are the only option that can do so. Additionally, the dental implant stimulates bone growth and improves the smile’s health while eliminating the risk of a “sunken” appearance common in long-term denture wearers. It maintains a natural and youthful look to the mouth and jaw area, successfully maintaining bone simultaneously.

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants.
