Dental Implants in Carson, CA

Restoring Your Smile For Life

Missing teeth can make you feel less confident about your smile. But more importantly, they cause uncomfortable and embarrassing dental issues that get in the way of an active lifestyle. That’s why Dr. Aluning at Carson Dental Care is committed to replacing any missing teeth with state-of-the-art dental implants.

Dental implants are tooth restorations that our dental team will place directly onto your jawbone. The titanium rods will bond with your bone, acting as your tooth root. This makes implants the most reliable and long-lasting tooth replacement option. Topped with our customized dental crowns, your implants will look and feel just like your natural teeth. 

Discover how Dr. Aluning can change your smile and boost your confidence by exploring our guide to dental implants below.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dr. Aluning recommends dental implants to most patients with missing teeth for these reasons:

  • Durability – Dental implants are the longest-lasting method of restoring your smile because they replace your natural tooth root. They may never need to be replaced with the proper care.
  • Health benefits – The sturdy fusion of the titanium with your jawbone stimulates cell growth to keep your jaw strong and healthy. 
  • Natural appearance – Our stunning dental crowns sit atop your implant and are the only part of your restoration visible above the gum line. They’ll look and feel as comfortable as your natural teeth, so you’ll smile with confidence.
  • Easy care – Caring for your implants is easy — just brush and floss every day to keep your implants clean. We also recommend visiting our Carson dental office for routine professional cleanings.

The Dental Implants Process

There are several steps we have to take to prepare your mouth for dental implants. However, we can generally complete the process within 3 to 6 months depending on how many implants you’re receiving.

Scheduling Your Consultation

To begin your journey to a new smile, a member of our dental team will meticulously clean your teeth and gums. Dr. Aluning will then assess your oral health using dental technology to determine your jawbone density. She’ll also diagnose and treat any underlying dental issues to prepare for your restorations.

Sometimes, patients who’ve been missing teeth for an extended period lose bone structure beneath the tooth. In such cases, Dr. Aluning may recommend a supplemental procedure like bone grafting to give you the best possible foundation for implants. 

Placing Your Dental Implants

Once we’ve prepared your mouth for your implant placement process, we’ll clean your mouth again before surgically placing biocompatible titanium implants directly onto your jawbone. Our dentist will also fit your temporary crowns at this time. In the coming weeks and months, your jawbone will bond with the implant in a process known as osseointegration. 

Finalizing Your Restoration

After your implants have completely healed, you’re ready to place your permanent dental crowns. These sit on your titanium tooth roots, recreating the structure of your natural teeth. 

We’ll also customize your dental crowns to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth or create a brand new smile to brighten your appearance. Either way, we’re excited to help you design the smile of your dreams.

Caring For Your Implants

Your dental implants can be a life-long solution to tooth loss with the proper care. Luckily, taking care of your implants is just as easy as your natural teeth. Just brush and floss your teeth every day, along with scheduling twice-yearly dental appointments at Carson Dental Care to keep your teeth looking flawless and feeling comfortable.

I’ve been going to Carson Dental Care for a few years now. Dr. Maria is an amazing dentist, she is very passionate about oral care and as a bonus she’s equally as passionate about your overall health. She’s a gentle dentist which is perfect for those that have a fear of dentists. She listens to the patients, addresses their concerns and comes up with a treatment plan that is beneficial to the patient. The staff is just as wonderful, I adore the staff (they’re like my dental family). Marleen is the office mgr and she is so welcoming. Bottom line, I love this dentist office… I highly recommend her to anyone. Call today for an appointment. You won’t be disappointed.
