Are dental implants the best choice for Los Angeles denture wearers?


dental implants from Dr. Don Mungcal in Los Angeles
The number one complaint of denture wearers is stability. Whether the denture replaces just a few missing teeth or a whole arch, stability can be an issue. A denture that slips and wobbles causes sore spots, reduces chewing function, and can cause a great deal of embarrassment. When Los Angeles patients seek Dr. Don Mungcal’s advice, he often suggests dental implants as the best solution.

What is a dental implant?

An implant is a tiny screw fabricated from strong, biocompatible material. In a brief surgical procedure, it is placed into the bone of the jaw. Over time, bone fuses with the implant. This creates a rock-solid foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture.

Implants improve the denture-wearing experience

  • Implant-retained denture – As few as four strategically placed dental implants can securely anchor a whole arch of teeth. The denture is fitted with attachment points that snap over implant abutments, and is removable for easy cleaning. An upper implant-supported denture does not cover the palate, for natural taste and temperature sensation. Teeth can be inserted same day with the All on Four (or five or six) technique used by Dr. Mungcal.
  • Implant bridge – Just two dental implants can hold a span of up to three artificial teeth, to close a five-tooth gap. This type of fixed bridge is much more stable than a removable partial denture, and looks natural.
  • Stand-alone implants – Implants can be used to replace multiple or an entire arch of missing teeth, each one performing just like a natural tooth.

Because a dental implant becomes part of your body, with good oral hygiene and regular checkups, it can last a lifetime. You’ll enjoy favorite foods again, as well as smiling, speaking, and singing with confidence.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
