Dental Implants

A permanent solution for a beautiful, natural-looking smile

If you’re considering dental implants, you’ll find many dentists who will offer to perform the procedure. However, if you’re looking for the best possible outcome and overall experience, choose an implant expert like Dr. Angel Soto for your procedure. Dr. Soto had a 2-year Implant Continuum training at UCLA, and has the relevant knowledge, and equipment to ensure the most successful, comfortable and minimally invasive treatment. This results in a faster recovery time while giving you a beautiful, natural-looking smile

About Dental Implants

Dental implants have proven to be one of the most revolutionary dental innovations of the last five decades. They are the most stable and durable option for replacing missing teeth, and are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. Thanks to recent advances in this field almost everyone in need of tooth replacement is a candidate for dental implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are a valuable alternative to an uncomfortable prosthesis. The implants themselves are small appliances produced from titanium that serve a similar purpose to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support overdentures and dental bridges, helping them to perform as our natural teeth would. Once the implants are put in place, you’ll be able to replace anything from one tooth to a whole set with ease.

Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities Dental Implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • A permanent solution that leaves your smile looking natural
  • Enjoy eating all the foods you love again
  • Helps you look younger
  • Laugh, eat and speak with confidence
  • No ill-fitting, painful dentures

What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

Dental implants have many advantages over other forms of tooth replacement:

  • Dental implants are fixed in place and completely integrate (fuse) with your jawbone, so your replacement teeth won’t move or make clicking noises.
  • Depending on the type of teeth that are placed over the implants, you will have between 60% and 95% of the chewing and biting power of natural teeth (as opposed to the 15% that is afforded by regular, non-implant-supported dentures).
  • Implants prevent bone loss in the jawbone, as the biting and chewing forces on the implants supply the stimulation needed for the bone to maintain itself (just like with natural tooth roots).
  • With proper care, dental implants are very durable and can last a lifetime.
  • With dental implants there is no need to cut down adjacent teeth (such as is the case with conventional bridgework).
  • In most cases you can brush, floss and care for your replacement teeth in exactly the same way as with your natural teeth.
  • Dental implants have a track record of reliable, long-term successful outcomes.
  • Implants do not get cavities and never need root-canals

What is the protocol for planning Dental Implants?

The initial step is to meet with Dr. Soto for a free consultation. At this consultation, the doctor and you will determine your needs, assess your oral health, review your medical history, and discuss treatment options in order to create a customized treatment plan just for you. We’ll also discuss costs, financing options if necessary, and timing.

If you decide that Dental Implants are right for you and would like to proceed, next is a pre-procedure exam with Dr. Soto. This exam involves an X-ray or a 3D CT scan and may include taking models of your teeth to determine the ideal treatment for your condition. Fortunately, we have this technology in our office, so you won’t have to visit another office or imaging center. This exam can usually be completed in less than an hour. Once completed, you are ready to schedule your implant placement surgery. The surgery is conveniently completed right at our facility – no need to go to the hospital or surgical center.

Who is a good candidate for Dental Implants?

Those likely to benefit from dental implants include people who have been experiencing problems with conventional dentures or, simply, people who have lost a tooth or teeth. Dental Implants make life easier for those who have been finding it difficult to chew and enjoy meals, and they can slow down the process of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the way that they will give your facial structure a lift. Furthermore, they will help you to speak more clearly.

However, for this implant procedure to work there must be enough bone in the jaw and the bone has to be strong enough to hold and support the implant. In the past, patients who had lost too much bone in the jaw could not receive implants. Due to advances in technology, bone tissues can now be regenerated with special bone grafting technique, making successful implant placement possible in the vast majority of patients. In addition, Dr. Soto uses 3D technology to find areas in the jaw where the bone is dense and plentiful enough to permit the placement of implants at specific angles.

How do I get started?

Start with a Free Consultation with Dr. Soto. At this consultation, the doctor will create a customized treatment plan just for you. You’ll learn exactly how much the procedure will cost without having to worry about any surprise fees. And remember: a free consultation is a conversation. It’s not a commitment. You have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
