Dental Implants

Drs. Peter & Christopher Ching uses the latest advancements in dental implantology to ensure your treatment is medically sound and esthetically pleasing. They can provide the diagnosis and treatment you need conveniently at their office. Drs. Peter & Christopher Ching will create a custom dental implant program just for you, to place natural-looking dental implants… so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Implants are an increasingly popular and effective way to replace missing teeth and stabilize dentures. For most people, they are also the most cost effective solution.

Implants are changing the way people live! With implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. A patient who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence. The implants themselves are titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone (upper or lower) where the missing teeth used to be. In addition, the implants can preserve the facial bone structures by preventing the continuation of bone loss after tooth removal.

Is implant placement painful?

Nearly all implant procedures are performed with local anesthetic in a comfortable dental chair. Following implant placement, most patients experience some mild soreness for a day or so. Over-the-counter pain relievers almost always do the trick. After healing has occurred, implants give the patient the freedom to chew and smile painlessly again.

Denture wearers who are tired of having ill-fitted plates that require frequent re-lining are upgrading to implant-supported-dentures that snap into the implants for a tight, secure fit and increased jaw strength. Less atrophy in the jaw bone due to the stimulation of the implants means less change in the gum tissue and facial structure and therefore, less change in the fit of the denture. All this translates into increased confidence, easier chewing and a more youthful appearance.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Implants actually preserve bone. When the jaw loses teeth, the bone atrophies away and the face may sink in.
  •  Implants minimize this, keeping the bone stimulated and the face and muscle tone looking younger Implants do not decay (decay is the most common cause for bridge failure).
  • We can place implants today where we could not five to ten years ago.
  •  Implants add stability, preventing other teeth from bearing too much biting force stress, and keep the chewing forces off your tender gums.
  •  Dental implants increase chewing confidence and efficiency, muscle tone and strength, and youthful appearance.

Once fitted, implants are as secure as a natural tooth. While implants are relatively easy to fit, they also last for a lifetime. Unlike dentures, implants are comfortable and always a perfect fit. Importantly, they also enable you to eat all your favorite foods with real confidence.

At Ching Dental, we fit implants to deal with a wide variety of conditions, from replacing a single tooth to performing a full dental restoration. To ensure your treatment is the most appropriate to you, we always start with a detailed consultation in which the procedure is explained and you have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss your preferences.
