Are you tired of looking in the mirror and seeing large gaps in your smile where your teeth used to be? Do you want to feel more confident smiling, or do you simply want to be able to eat without having to deal with constant chewing problems?

If you are interested in getting your beautiful smile back after tooth loss, our Upland, CA dentists Dr. Cristina Petit, Dr. James Shunk, and Dr. Thanh Do can provide you with long-lasting and incredibly durable dental implants.
We recommend dental implants to most healthy adults who are missing at least one permanent tooth. We look at a patient’s overall health as well as their oral health to determine if implants are right for them. We want someone who is dedicated to maintaining a healthy smile because that also means that they are going to be dedicated to maintaining a healthy implant.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
implants can be used to replace any missing teeth. The implant itself
is simply a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the
jawbone where it replaces the missing tooth roots. About 3-6 months
after the implant has been placed into the jawbone, the bone and
tissue grows around the implant and integrate with it to become one.
Once the implant is a permanent part of the jawbone then we can
secure the artificial tooth (aka a dental crown) or artificial teeth
(aka a bridge or full dentures) on top.
