When we think of missing teeth, the first issue that comes to mind is how it affects the aesthetic of your smile. While an incomplete smile can negatively impact our confidence, there are many serious risks associated with lost teeth.
Our teeth are incredibly hardworking, helping us chew and speak. But they also protect our gums from harmful bacteria that can cause gum disease or infection. In addition, they provide stimulation keeping our jaw healthy and our facial muscles strong.
Don’t go another day with your dental health at risk! Restore your smile to its fullest with our implant-supported dentures and enjoy all the benefits they offer.
A diminished smile can mean a diminished quality of life; weakened jaw, difficulty speaking and no longer being able to enjoy your favorite foods. That isn’t even mentioning the increased risk of gum disease or infection caused by missing teeth!
Your quality of life can be improved with our implant-supported dentures from La Costa Dental Excellence. Using treatments like the All-on-4® treatment concept, our dental implants provide all the same functions as natural teeth!
Not only will this treatment restore your smile in form and function, it will last a lifetime with proper care.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we want to help everyone get the dental care they deserve, which is why we offer free dental implant consultations. If you or a loved one are looking to restore your smile and enjoy all the benefits that come with it, contact us today!
The biggest complaint of traditional dentures is how uncomfortable they are. Not only can they hurt while your mouth adjusts, but they also require messy adhesives and still run the risk of slipping out of place.
These problems are eliminated with implant-supported dentures! By being fixed to your jaw, they provide a more comfortable and natural feel while staying securely in place so you can smile with confidence.
False teeth like traditional dentures rest on top of your gums, meaning they need to be held in place with add-ons like dental adhesive or paste. Even then, traditional dentures can slip, making meals or a conversation awkward.
With implant-supported dentures, you get a secure and stable smile as these dentures are supported by titanium posts that simulate your natural tooth roots! No more messy pastes or risk of slippage.
Implant-supported dentures do much more than providing a brilliant, full smile. They can restore all the functions of your lost teeth! Made from top-quality materials, implant-supported dentures simulate both the tooth and tooth root, giving them a natural feel.
With this treatment, you’ll be able to chew and speak just as easily as with your original teeth!
When you are missing even a single tooth, you can put your dental health at risk. Our teeth provide protection for the soft tissue of our mouth and without them, we increase our risk of gum disease and infection. That’s not even mentioning missing teeth can cause your jawbone to deteriorate by 30%!
Optimize your oral health with implant-supported dentures.
Missing teeth can have a negative impact on our smile’s aesthetic, which in turn, impacts how confident we feel when smiling. Thankfully, implant-supported dentures can restore your smile and make it more beautiful than ever.
That’s right! You can get a completely restored smile with dental implants. Even if you are missing all of your teeth, the All-on-4 ® treatment concept can create a brand-new smile for you.
Implant-supported dentures are a great way to replace missing teeth or even compromised teeth that have been damaged by dental trauma, decay, or infection. Removing the troubled teeth may be needed for treatment, which is called a dental extraction.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we ensure this is as comfortable a procedure as possible and even offer sedation dentistry options to anyone suffering from dental anxiety.
The success of a dental implant relies on a process called osseointegration, where the implant attaches to your jawbone. It may be necessary to strengthen your jaw before placing the implant. This is done with a bone graft, a procedure that reinforced and stimulates your bone tissue.
We’ll learn if a bone graft is necessary before treatment and are happy to discuss this procedure and other options during consultation.
A dental implant is made up of three parts; the implant, the abutment, and the crown. Placing the implant (screw) is the first step, which requires minor surgery to place the implant in your jaw. This allows the implant to act as your new tooth’s root. The abutment is the part that attaches the crown to the implant. This part is made custom for you and your mouth once the implant has healed in about 3–4 months.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we make sure all of our treatments are as comfortable as possible. So once the implant has been placed, there will be a recovery period where you can heal and let the implant become secure in your jawbone.
The secure foundation that the implant will provide for your new tooth is incredibly important for the success of your new smile.
With the foundation of your dental implant secured, it is time to place the second section of the dental implant. This is called the abutment and can be seen as a “connector” between the implant and the final section, the crown.
The final section of the dental implant is a crown, which will act as your new tooth. Made from high-quality materials like biocompatible ceramic, your crown will be shaded and shaped to look like your natural teeth with a few extra perks.
Perks like being highly resistant to stains and tooth decay, meaning your dental implant will last a lifetime when properly cleaned and cared for.
You may experience some discomfort as you adjust to your new dental implants. Thankfully, over-the-counter pain relievers and ice packs can limit this discomfort and swelling. Most patients adjust to their new implants within two weeks.
Caring for your new dental implants is also easy: treat them like your natural teeth! Brush twice a day, floss once a day and/or Waterpik, and remember to schedule routine checkups.
The talented dental professionals here at La Costa Dental Excellence work hard to personalize your care. To do this, we offer a variety of different implant-supported dentures so you can find the perfect fit.
The following sections will have information on different dental implants. If you have any further questions or concerns, please contact our office by phone, email, or by clicking this link.
Fixed implant-supported dentures are a permanent means to replace missing teeth. By attaching the dentures to the implant, they won’t come out and they will act like your natural teeth in form and function.
With these dentures, there’s no need to worry about placing them each day, losing them, or any chance of them slipping out of place. A fixed dental implant is a secure dental implant!
Removable implant dentures (also called “snap-on” dentures), emphasize personal choice and convenience. Unlike traditional dentures that require messy adhesives to be kept in place, these dental implants can be “snapped” in and out of place easily without needing additional products.
You are in control with these dentures, letting you wear them when you want. Smile on your terms with removable implant dentures!
Even the most extreme cases of tooth loss can be resolved thanks to the All-on-4® treatment concept. Whether you are missing all of your teeth or need the majority of them replaced due to widespread damage, we can help.
With as few as four strategically placed dental implants, you can get a brand-new smile. A completely restored set of teeth that look fantastic and grant the benefits of your original teeth.
The All-on-6 treatment (sometimes referred to as the 3 on 6 treatment) has similar benefits to the All-on-4® treatment concept (mentioned above). It is the ideal means to replace all or the majority of your teeth with natural-looking and feeling dentures.
As you might have guessed, this treatment includes two additional implants. This allows for even more support for your new teeth.
Our mouths have two arches (the upper and lower arch) which support our natural teeth. If you or a loved one are suffering from dental damage or missing teeth along one arch, this may be the ideal solution for you.
This treatment restores one arch while preserving your healthy, natural teeth on the other. Not only will your new teeth match your original teeth, but also work with them to optimize your dental health.
Anyone missing only a few teeth in one section of your mouth, an implant-supported dental bridge might be the solution. Implants will be placed along the section of gums that have no teeth, allowing for new dental crowns to “bridge” that empty space.
Once again have a full, complete smile while improving your dental health! You can preserve your bite and lower the risk of gum disease with a single dental bridge.
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we believe an informed patient is a happy one! In the following section, we have gathered frequently asked questions about dental implants and provided answers. If you have any further questions, please contact our office.
The results you can expect from implant-supported dentures are both cosmetic and restorative. Your smile will once again be complete with beautiful replacement teeth that look and function like your natural teeth! Once again you can chew your favorite foods, speak clearly, and smile confidently.
Best of all, they can last a lifetime with proper dental hygiene.
Traditional dentures don’t provide the same stimulation that natural teeth do. This can cause a shift in bite, extra wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, and even sagging of the facial muscles.
Implant-supported dentures can prevent these changes! Since they are attached to your jaw like natural teeth, they provide all the necessary stimulation to keep your appearance healthy.
Some of the biggest problems with missing teeth are that you are no longer able to chew or enjoy your favorite food. Traditional dentures try to remedy this, but they can create difficulty speaking, especially if they slip out of place.
Thankfully, implant-supported dentures resolve these issues by simulating your natural teeth. Enjoy your favorite foods and speak clearly and confidently thanks to these dentures!
At La Costa Dental Excellence, we strive to provide each patient with truly individualized care, ensuring that your dental health needs and oral health goals are met. Because we provide such personalized plans, costs can vary from treatment to treatment.
This means we will more accurately price your treatment after consultation. But don’t worry; we offer free dental implant consultations and several payment options.
One of the driving factors behind the popularity of implant-supported dentures is their ability to create a beautiful smile and the benefits of new teeth.
You can keep your dental implants in perfect shape with oral care; brush twice a day and floss and/or use a Waterpik once a day while scheduling routine checkups. It’s that simple!
Dental plans can cover costs related to implant-supported dentures. However, how much is covered differs from policy to policy. But not to worry! Our staff has been trained to help navigate policy questions, evaluate treatment costs, and show you what financing options are available to you.

Dental implants are a fantastic combination of both cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry, a single treatment that makes beautiful smiles and improves dental health. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t alternatives.
For example, dental bonding is one of the quickest means to fix a broken or damaged tooth. Or a traditional dental bridge can be used to replace multiple teeth without the need for an implant.
