A Permanent Solution to Replacing Missing Teeth and Restoring Your Smile

When you have a missing tooth in your smile, it can lead to more than just potential oral health issues. Missing teeth can cause many people to feel self-conscious about their smile. Here at Sunshine Dental Group, our dentists and team want you to feel confident in and comfortable with your smile, which is why we are happy to offer dental implants in El Monte, California.

Dental implants are inserted into the jaw bone with a titanium screw. This not only replaces your natural tooth’s dental roots but also keeps the jawbone stimulated so that it remains healthy. On top of the implant screw, or post, is a dental crown that is customized to resemble your natural tooth. In the end, you have a permanent dental replacement that truly looks, feels and functions like your natural tooth.

To begin your dental implant treatment, Dr. Jorge de la Osa or one of his associate dentists will numb the treatment area. Then, we will insert the implant post into the jaw bone where the missing tooth once sat. Over a period of several months, your implant post will bond with the surrounding bone, providing a more stable and long-lasting solution. After this bonding period, our dentists will attach the dental crown to complete your treatment.

At our practice, we are pleased to not only perform the initial placement of your dental implant but also perform restorations or repairs to your dental crown should they be required later in life. In short, we are here to help in every step of your dental implant treatment.

If you have one or more missing teeth in your smile, we encourage you to contact our practice and learn if dental implants are right for you!
