Patients with damaged or missing teeth often choose dental implants for a long-term and natural-looking way to restore their smile and oral function. When our patients receive a dental implant, they gain a durable, comfortable, and natural-looking replacement tooth that allows them to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. Because dental implants replace the entire structure of the lost tooth — root and all — this tooth restoration solution prevents the jaw bone atrophy that can result from tooth loss.
We encourage you to contact one of our trusted offices in San Diego, CA, to learn more about the innovative techniques for tooth replacement we use in our practice. We are happy to schedule a consultation for you with Dr. Koshgerian or Dr. Shelton to discuss your tooth restoration options. We look forward to helping you smile again!
The third molars, also known as wisdom teeth, are the final set of molars to emerge. However, most people do not have enough room in the mouth to allow these extra teeth to grow in properly. To avoid the potential oral health problems that impacted wisdom teeth can cause such as infection, crowding, pain, and more, it’s important that your family dentist monitor the development of your or your child’s wisdom teeth with regular checkups. Removing wisdom teeth early, before they start to cause problems, is often recommended by dental professionals.
If you or your child require wisdom teeth removal in San Diego, CA, look no further than The Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of San Diego. Drs. Koshgerian and Shelton are highly experienced in wisdom teeth removal and will design a customized treatment plan to ensure you feel safe, comfortable, and informed throughout your treatment. We look forward to caring for you and your loved ones.
Full-arch restoration, also called full-arch replacement, is a desirable option for patients who have severe tooth loss and want to replace an entire arch of teeth. Full-arch restoration uses four or more dental implant posts to support a custom-designed full-arch prosthesis (denture) that is permanent and secure and will look and function just like natural teeth. Because full-arch restoration replaces an entire arch of teeth at once, multiple implant surgeries are unnecessary, and patients can begin to experience the benefits of a completely new smile immediately after the procedure. Unlike traditional dentures, there is no risk of the replacement teeth slipping or falling out. Full-arch replacement has all the benefits of individual dental implants — including the prevention of bone atrophy in the jaw that can occur with tooth loss.
If you have multiple missing or failing teeth, full-arch restoration may be the solution for you. If you would like to learn more about the full-arch restoration or discuss other tooth replacement options, we encourage you to call one of our offices in San Diego, CA. Our trusted oral surgeons will be happy to consult with you about achieving your oral health goals.
