Dental implants: an innovative tooth replacement solution
Natural-looking dental implants represent the most sophisticated and potentially the longest-lasting solution for the replacement of missing teeth. A dental implant can last a lifetime as long as the procedure is navigated and performed by an experienced dental implant specialist in Temecula or the region. Additionally, the patient should be diligent about aftercare and follow-up visits during the recovery process and committed to maintaining proper hygiene and care in the future.

Proven treatment solutions for your lasting satisfaction
Not every patient is an ideal candidate for dental implants and not every dental implant procedure is straightforward. For patients who are dealing with considerable jawbone deterioration, another form of treatment may be more suitable. Some patients may need to undergo additional procedures before they are ready for the placement of dental implants in Temecula. Rest assured that Dr. Tsvetov will guide you through the procedure to help you reach an informed decision in your best interest.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dental implants look virtually identical to natural teeth, regardless of which teeth you need to replace. The planning of implant placement in a strategic location is a critical step in your dental implant procedure. Whether it’s an entire bridge, a single dental implant or multiple implants, the implants will be sized according to the 3-D image or a CT scan results showing your bone volume, which enables your surgeon to the most appropriate, most natural-looking implant possible at the site.
But what happens when there is simply not enough healthy jawbone for the placement of an implant? This scenario could compromise the durability of the implant and, by extension, the functional outcome and long-term success of the procedure on the whole.
Dr. Tsvetov has experience in handling difficult dental implant cases across the Temecula Valley. After evaluating your situation and expected outcome, he will recommend the course of action that makes most sense in your particular case.
Dental implants cannot restore bone loss but they can halt bone loss and prevent further deterioration of the jawbone. This helps maintain the function and physical structure and appearance of your teeth and jawbone. Additionally, your dental implant specialist in Temecula may resort to special techniques to restore your bone loss.
At our Temecula office, even a complex tooth extraction is a quick procedure. But how long will you have to wait before you can get an implant to replace the missing tooth?
Dr. Tsvetov can place the implant as soon as you have recovered from the extraction. It is important not to wait too long after a dental extraction to get the implant placed, as this may result in excessive bone loss, which could make your dental implant procedure more difficult and more complicated, as well as more expensive.
It is entirely up to you. You can opt for:
- Local anesthesia which will numb um the area of the missing tooth. You will be awake throughout the procedure.
- Twilight anesthesia which will render you sedated, but not unconscious.
- Intravenous anesthesia which will put you to sleep. You will be completely unconscious throughout the procedure.
Your choice may also depend on the type of dental implant procedure you are undergoing. For a single dental implant, the placement procedure should take no longer than 20-30 minutes. An All-on-4 procedure is more time-consuming, but it typically lasts no more than four hours.
On average, it takes about 3 months for the gums to fully heal after a dental implant procedure. Our patients from Temecula and surrounding areas can promote the healing process by following doctor’s aftercare instructions and returning for regular follow-up visits during which your oral surgeon will monitor your healing process.
After you get a single dental implant or a set of implants, it will likely take about 3 months for the gums to fully heal and for the implant or implants to fuse with your jawbone.
In the case of All-on-4 dental implants, for instance, it will take roughly 3 to 6 months to fully complete the treatment process. It is at this second stage of the process that you will have your permanent dental bridge attached to the implants to replace the temporary bridge that was placed during the all on 4 procedure. This customised fixed dental bridge will be made through a precision-crafted, digital process.
Dr. Tsvetov will guide you through all the steps of the procedure during your initial consultation in our Temecula office. We welcome patients from across Riverside County.
With proper care and hygiene, dental implants can be a permanent solution and last a lifetime. Unlike conventional dentures which tend to accelerate the patient’s jawbone deterioration process, dental implants do just the opposite: they restore the natural support of the jawbone.
However, there are certain considerations to be taken into account. Namely, neglect and improper oral hygiene on behalf of the patient and changes to the patient’s overall general health or medication regimen can have a detrimental effect on the outcome, which is why the patient needs to maintain a vigilant schedule of regular follow-up visits.
During these visits, the dental implant specialist will be on the lookout for:
- Potential bone loss around the implants. Regular brushing and flossing can reduce the risk of bone loss and improve the patient’s outcome considerably.
- Bone deterioration caused by uncontrolled diseases such as diabetes or newly adopted medication regimens which alter the patient’s immune response.
If you are considering a dental implant procedure, do not hesitate to contact us straight away.
