Dental Implants in Poway, CA
Most healthy adults are good candidates for dental implants. When you come in for your consultation and examination, Dr. Tae Chung will be especially interested in the condition of the tissue and bone in your jaw where your implant will be placed. A good quantity of healthy bone is important for proper placement of the implant and will help us to avoid the need for other procedures such as tissue and bone grafts. X-rays will help us determine the condition of your jaw bone and give us a better idea as to whether implants are right for you.
Our team at AllDent Dental Center can help you determine if dental implants are right for you. Contact our local office in Poway, CA to schedule a dental implant consultation.
Price, Permanence, and Comfort for Dental Implants and Dentures
This will depend greatly on a number of factors. Most insurance companies will pay for dentures but may not fully cover dental implants. Dental implants do cost more than dentures, and for some people, this is an important consideration. Dental implants require an oral surgeon to place the titanium post while dentures are completely non-invasive. However, dental implants are a permanent solution that will blend right in with your own natural teeth while dentures and partials are meant to be removed for cleaning and soaking. Dentures will require adjustments to keep them fitting properly as the shape of your mouth changes over time and have been known to slip at the wrong moment. You may also find that dentures will limit the types of foods you can enjoy.
