Dr. Sondhi has significant experience placing and restoring dental implants at our San Diego, CA dental office. We are proud to offer advanced 3-D cone beam imaging to plan treatment and place the implant in precisely the right spot and position for optimal outcomes.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement that replicates an entire tooth, from root to crown. A tiny titanium post acts as an artificial tooth root that we place surgically in the jaw to replace the lost root.
Because titanium is a biocompatible material, it gradually fuses or integrates with surrounding bone and tissue as it heals. This process is called osseointegration and takes three to eight months to complete.
Eventually, the implant becomes part of your dental anatomy, just as the lost root was. After healing, Dr. Sondhi places a tooth restoration on the implant to restore its function and complete your smile.
Depending on how many teeth we need to replace, the restoration may be a crown for a single tooth or a bridge or denture for multiple teeth. We can even replace an entire arch of teeth with implant-supported dentures for a secure fit and stable function.
