Free dental implant consultation in Temecula Valley and Riverside County
Here at Temecula Center for Wisdom Teeth & Dental Implants, we can help you restore your confidence and the like-natural functionality and appearance of a missing tooth. Remarkable innovations in the surgical and prosthetic field have made dental implants the most sophisticated and dependable alternative to natural teeth. When a patient is missing a single tooth, placement of a dental implant is recommended as the best, most reliable, and most permanent solution.
Schedule a free consultation for your dental implant procedure for a missing tooth at our Temecula office, so we can determine if you are a good candidate for immediate dental implant placement and have enough healthy bone to accommodate the implant. If you have a loose or otherwise damaged tooth that is impossible to salvage, we can perform delayed implant placement: we will first extract the tooth and schedule your dental implant procedure after the bone at the extraction site has fully healed, which takes approximately 3 months.
Carefully planned and executed procedure
To evaluate the functional outcome of your dental implant for a single tooth, we will first perform an in-depth evaluation to determine if you meet the criteria for dental implant placement or if an additional bone grafting procedure may be needed to improve your odds for a favorable outcome. At Temecula Center for Wisdom Teeth & Dental Implants, we have experience in planning and performing dental implant procedures comfortably and efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions
We usually recommend local anesthesia to patients in the Temecula region undergoing dental implant placement. You will likely feel some pressure during your placement procedure of a dental implant in Temecula, but not to the extent that it may cause you discomfort. Dental implant procedures are less invasive and recovery is easier and quicker than recovery after tooth extraction. You may experience some discomfort during the period of recovery, but we will instruct you on how to minimize and overcome it.
We cannot determine the cost of your procedure prior to the evaluation, but you can rest assured that a comprehensive evaluation at our Temecula office will be completely free of charge and that you will receive an accurate estimate that will include both your copay and anticipated insurance reimbursement. Here are some important factors and considerations to be mindful of:
- The cost of an individual dental implant depends on the complexity of the case and on whether the patient needs additional bone grafting.
- The cost of follow-up care is included in the price.
- Dental insurance can cover up to 50-60% of the cost of a dental implant in Temecula.
- You can pay for each stage of the delayed implant placement procedure separately, whereas immediate implant placement requires you to make the full payment at once.
- General Anesthesia might increase your fees. We will discuss this at length during your consultation. .
A dental implant can effectively replace a single tooth without compromising the adjacent teeth, which is one of the key advantages of dental implants over dental bridges. Furthermore, brushing and flossing of a dental implant is much easier than care and maintenance of a dental bridge.
But this brings us to the topic of diligence vs. neglect: a single tooth implant can be permanent and last a lifetime with appropriate care, which entails regular visits to the oral surgeon and proper oral and dental hygiene for the protection of the jawbone and gums.
During your regular follow-up appointments at our Temecula office, we will check your dental implant to ensure there is no risk of gum inflammation and bone deterioration, which is the number one cause of dental implant failure.
Proper care of a dental implant starts with strict adherence to aftercare instructions. For instance, it is important for patients to avoid hot and crunchy food and stick to a soft diet for the first couple of days after implant is placed..
Certain diseases and medication regimens can also contribute to dental implant loss, which is why maintaining good dental, oral and general health is vital to the success of a dental implant and thus we are so diligent about the evaluation process.
It may be possible to replace 2 adjacent teeth with a single strategically placed implant, but we will first need to conduct an in-depth evaluation to determine if this is a possibility in your case.
A single-tooth dental implant placement is done in one day, and Dr. Tsvetov can do it in our Temecula office in 20 to 30 minutes. However, the whole procedure from extraction to completed restoration is more complex and takes longer, especially if additional bone grafting is needed.
Namely, if we are doing an immediate implant placement procedure, we need to wait 3 to 4 months for the implant to fully heal and stabilize before we can attach a permanent crown to it.
If we are doing a delayed implant placement procedure, which is often the case with a tooth with multiple roots/molar tooth, we first need to perform the extraction and wait for the tissue at the extraction site to heal, which usually takes about 3 months, before we can place the implant. We can then restore the implant with the cap, which means the timeline from start to finish would span 6 to 7 months.
The question we get most often from patients in Temecula and the area concerns the level of pain and discomfort during and after a procedure. At our practice, we do our best to ensure minimal patient discomfort regardless of the procedure we are doing, but generally speaking, dental implant placement is less uncomfortable and less invasive than a tooth extraction and it can be done with a local anesthetic alone, which means the patient remains awake during the procedure.
Healing time is not the same for every patient. Patients are likely to experience some mild pain and discomfort following a dental implant procedure, which they can safely manage using prescription or over-the-counter pain management medications.
Patients may need to stay on a soft diet for several days following the procedure, but they can usually go back to their normal day-to-day activities 1-3 days after their procedure.
