A Solution that Lasts: Complete Smiles in Anaheim Hills

 

Missing teeth are more than an aesthetic problem, as it can affect your oral health. Over time, your healthy remaining teeth will shift to compensate for the missing teeth, and they will have added stress. It throws off your bite and can change the way you eat, chew, and in some cases, speak. In more extreme cases, missing teeth that aren’t replaced can lead to bone deterioration and other complications.

Dental implants are the closest replacement option to your natural teeth. They function just like your regular teeth and can last a lifetime when properly cared for. Whether you require a single tooth replacement or multiple teeth, Darren Chu DDS has you covered. We’ll start with an initial consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you and discuss the procedure and expectations. We’re ready to help you get the most beautiful, complete smile while promoting your oral health.

 
Place and Restore

Place and Restore

At our office, Dr. Chu can both place and restore your dental implants. The entire process is completed by the team you trust, in the office you’re most comfortable in. After your consultation, Dr. Chu will surgically place the implant “rod” into your jaw. During the healing period, the bone tissue will fuse to the implant and anchor it in place, where it will act as a root for a restoration. Next, Dr. Chu will restore your implant with a dental crown, created just for you. Your dental implant will blend with your remaining teeth and look completely natural.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-Retained Dentures

Whether you already have dentures or are searching for a replacement option for a full arch of teeth, implant-retained dentures offer a secure, comfortable fit. We use as little as four dental implants, to which the set of dentures can snap onto. Like traditional dentures, implant-retained dentures are removable, but they won’t slip, shift, or rub when you talk or eat. Embarrassing denture slips are a thing of the past with implant-retained dentures. Ask us if your current set can be altered, or we’ll be happy to create a beautiful new set for your dental implants.

Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifts

Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifts

In order to be a candidate for dental implants, you have to have enough healthy bone tissue. As part of our consultation, we’ll evaluate your jaw bone density and determine if you require a bone graft or sinus lift procedure. We’ll extract donor bone tissue from other areas of your body and graft it to the necessary areas of your jaw to preserve your current bone density or increase it. Sinus lifts are bone graft procedures performed to the upper jaw. By having this procedure done, you can increase the success of a dental implant in areas where the bone tissue was previously too low.
