Claremont CA’s Source for Affordable, Full Dental Implants | Restoring Your Smile for a Lifetime
Whether caused by a sudden accident or as a result of a lack of care, missing teeth can be unsightly and sometimes turn into a medical risk.
While your quality of life may not seem drastically reduced by only missing one tooth, empty spots can make it difficult to chew, communicate, or feel confident about your smile. In time, adjacent teeth shift toward the empty spot and the opposing tooth erupts into the space. Such changes impact your gum health and the stability of your bite.
David Seccombe, DDS is sensitive to the emotional and tangible impact that missing teeth can have on individuals and their relationships. That’s why he utilizes advanced equipment and standardized methods during all dental implant services.
Here are a few of common dental implant services that Dr. Seccombe may recommend:
- Placement with the collaboration of an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist
Types of Dental Implants
Depending on the structure of your jaw/gums, dental history, and ailment – one specific type of dental implant may be more effective than another.
Ceramic Dental Implants
Dr. Seccombe designs that portion of the implant in the smile zone (the abutment and crown) to be made of zirconium or ceramic for strength and esthetics.
Titanium Dental Implants
The implant in the bone itself is titanium which is both strong and bio-compatible.
Approach to Dental Implant Service
Dr. Seccombe uses a holistic approach to providing affordable dental implant service, meaning that there’s a standardized process in place to help you reach your goals. The first step begins with a personalized consultation. This meeting allows us to create a plan that accounts for the number of implants, your gum health, and medical history. Also, the condition of any existing implants will determine whether implant replacements, repair, or maintenance is necessary.
If you are missing several teeth that are adjacent to each other, we may recommend a ‘bridge’ to further support your group of implants.
