Dental Implants
Brea, CA

Diagram of dental implant with post. At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we offer several implant-related treatments to replace one or more missing teeth. We specialize in implant treatment because we believe that dental implants are the ideal solution for tooth loss.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw that we surgically embed deep into the jawbone. Once the implant is in place, it will slowly fuse to your jaw through the process of osseointegration. After a brief healing period, the implant screw will be able to support a restoration against the strongest forces of your bite. Dental implants can be used to support a single dental crown, a partial bridge, and a full-arch restoration.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth. This makes implants a more convenient, durable, secure, and aesthetically pleasing option over traditional restorations. The numerous benefits of dental implants have made them the industry standard for tooth replacement!

What Risks Are Associated With Dental Implants

Dental implants are incredibly safe when performed by an experienced dentist. It’s a procedure that provides a solid foundation for missing teeth and improves the appearance and function of teeth. Experts believe that dental implants work better than dentures and bridgework. They are stronger, more durable, and more comfortable. However, like any other surgery that involves making cuts and incisions, dental implants carry a few risks. At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, our friendly dentists Dr. Michael Han and will brief you on all the risks associated with dental implants.

Is There a Risk of Corrosion With Dental Implants?

Having a missing tooth comes with many challenges, such as losing self-esteem, your smile, and much more. A missing tooth can result from a damaged tooth, a decayed tooth, or an injury. Most people do worry if dental implants corrode while in the jawbone. At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, our knowledgeable and highly skilled dentists will take you through all the possible risks associated with dental implants before they embark on the procedure. The state-of-the-art technology we invest in ensures all dental implant installations succeed and help speed up recovery.

Are Dental Implants Safe

For more than 30 years, this method has been used effectively in dentistry and is regarded as quite safe. For people in good health, dental implants often don't present any significant concerns or issues. You should have good oral health before obtaining dental implants. If you have severe periodontal (gum) disease, for example, you will not be eligible for implants. Before getting implants, you must be able to control and stop the growth of your gum disease.

How To Maintain Your Dental Implant

Dental implants are considered one of the most reliable and effective methods to help restore and transform your smile if you have a missing tooth. There are common problems patients who have undergone a dental implant procedure do encounter. One way to avoid such problems is by taking good care of your dental implants. At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we are aware of the benefits that come with taking good care of dental implants.

Am I Too Old for Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a fantastic tooth replacement remedy for people with missing teeth. They are the best alternative choices compared to dentures and bridges. Dental implants are ideal for people of all ages, meaning everyone is a candidate for implants unless your dentist claims otherwise. However, there are factors dentists consider to ensure you are a suitable candidate for implants. These include healthy gums and adjacent teeth, enough bone support, better commitment to oral hygiene, and good general health. Our dentist at Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry will examine you to check whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Dental Implant FAQ

We believe patient education is the cornerstone of good oral health. During your initial appointment, Dr. Michael Han will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding dental implants. This is also an excellent opportunity for you to voice any concerns. Staying informed can help you better maintain your restoration and prevent potential problems.

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant placement is a surgery that fits dental implants that act as secure roots to a dental bridge or crown. Depending on your individual need, you may be having multiple implants put in, or you may just be having one. Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a range of different forms of implant placements, depending on the issue the patient is facing. If you have a missing or decaying tooth, we can have a look at it and advise the best restorative procedure for you.

Dental Implant Restoration

Dental implant restoration today is one of the most common techniques used for missing teeth replacement. Although you will get many solutions for missing teeth replacement, there is none as perfect as a dental implant placement. When a dentist helps you find the best option for you, you will realize that dental implants are the best you can find in the industry. General dentists at Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry will recommend dental implants because it is the tooth restoration that holds the most benefits.

How Does An Implant Compare to a Real Tooth

Missing single or multiple teeth can affect your self-esteem and ability to eat. The use of dental implants to help replace missing teeth has increased in popularity, with recent research revealing that up to five million dental implants are performed yearly. Therefore, how does a dental implant compare with a real tooth? At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry we will help you answer any questions about dental implants and recommend the best tooth restoration option for your missing tooth.

All on 4®

We offer the All-on-4 treatment concept for patients missing all or most of their teeth. As the name suggests, this full-arch restoration only uses four implants to support the entire bridge. The posterior (back) implants are placed at an angle to utilize the strongest part of the jawbone. Other full-arch restorations usually require six to eight implants. Thanks to the revolutionary new technique, All-on-4 is much more effective and minimally-invasive than other options.

Who Is a Candidate?

If you are in good oral and overall health, you should qualify for implant treatment. If you have experienced significant bone deterioration due to tooth loss, you may need a bone graft first. During your consultation, Dr. Michael Han will be able to determine if implants are right for you. This usually involves a series of diagnostic tests that may include digital x-rays and CBCT scans.

Dental Implants vs Mini Implants

More people today are using bridges, dentures, and dental implants to help replace missing teeth. Dental implants are the most popular among the three, with a higher number of patients preferring them. There are two main types of dental implants, which are traditional dental implants and mini implants. At Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry our experienced dentists understand well both traditional implants and mini implants. They will explain to the patient in need of a dental implant the two types before they agree on which is best for the patient's current situation. You can count on us to help restore your lost smile and confidence.

Ridge Augmentation

Many patients need a bone graft, or ridge augmentation before implantation is possible. Osseointegration, the process responsible for the many benefits of dental implants, requires an adequate amount of bone in the jaw. If osseointegration does not occur, implant failure is virtually guaranteed. Fortunately, we offer ridge augmentation to improve the quantity and quality of deteriorated bone. In many ways, ride augmentation allows patients to receive dental implants when it would otherwise be impossible.

Teeth in a Day

Teeth in a day allows our patients to have a new set of dental implants placed within one appointment, avoiding any time between removal of the teeth and implant placement. Typically, replacing the upper or lower row takes months of surgery, with ill-fitting dentures to bridge the gap between procedures. Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry offers the opportunity for our patients to have a comfortable, strong, new set of teeth, without any of the hassle and delay of conventional methods.

Sinus Lift

Sinus lift is a form of surgery generally administered when a patient needs dental implants, but their upper jawbone is not dense enough to support one. In this case, the patient will need to have a bone graft, and their sinus membrane moved upwards or lifted if it is too close to the implant site. Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry wants to quell any worries people may have surrounding sinus lifts, by outlining the procedure and its benefits.

Tooth Socket Graft

After a tooth has been removed, it is important to preserve the tooth socket to prevent further complications. Tooth socket grafting isn’t necessarily needed if a dental implant is being placed soon after. Talk to one of our dentists and they can advise you on our restorative procedures.

Bone Grafting

One of the biggest factors that prevent people from receiving dental implants is a lack of density in their jawbone. Our professionals at are able to overcome this hurdle for many of our patients through the use of bone grafting.
