What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?


If you practice good dental health habits and follow your dentist's instructions, your dental implants can last for 40 years or longer. While the restoration attached to the implant will someday require replacement, the implant itself can last a lifetime.

Jawbone Strength

Tooth roots provide stimulation to the jawbone. A missing tooth can cause the jawbone to atrophy, potentially leading to misalignment of your teeth and distortion of your jawline. Working in place of the missing roots, dental implants can stop further atrophy.

Easy Maintenance

Maintaining proper dental hygiene with implants is easy. You can care for your implant-supported restoration such as a bridge, crown, or denture, just like you care for your natural teeth. Brush and floss daily and visit the dentist twice a year.

My family and I have been patients since 2000. I have nothing but good things to say about the friendliness and professionalism of both the staff and Dr. Stragier. Dr. Stragier has made himself available after hours to take care of emergency dental issues. A comfortable and stress free environment.

Dr. Stragier, Pam, Terry and the dental hygienists are the BEST I've ever been to.  Dr. Stragier's techniques are very gentle and he doesn't try to sell procedures you may not need. Even my (reluctant patient) husband has done very well there for many years.

Dental Implant Treatment Spans Several Months


Our dentist, Dr. Stragier, will review your medical history and discuss your goals to assess your candidacy. If it is determined that implants are right for you, we can begin planning your treatment.

Initial Surgery

Dr. Stragier will perform surgery under sedation. Small incisions will be made in your gums to place the titanium or zirconia implant posts that will be the foundation of your new smile.

Healing Period

The first healing period takes four to six months. During this time, the titanium or zirconia implant posts will fuse directly to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

Abutment Placement

The component that attaches the titanium or zirconia base of the implant to a dental restoration is called an abutment. During this second surgery, the abutment is connected to the implant.

Healing Period

The second healing period is much shorter than the first. During this time, your gums will heal around the abutments.


The final step in the process involves attaching a bridge, crown, or denture to the abutment. Once completed, you can enjoy all the benefits of your new smile!

Caring For Your Dental Implants

If you replaced a single tooth with an implant-supported crown or an entire arch with implant-supported dentures, you should brush twice and floss once a day. Maintaining a regular schedule of biannual visits to our San Diego, CA, dentist office should be a priority. This allows Dr. Stragier to regularly check the condition of your restoration to ensure your dental implants provide you with a lifetime of benefits.

An Investment in Quality of Life

Modern dentistry provides numerous options to replace missing natural teeth. Thanks to state-of-the-art dental porcelain, traditional bridges and dentures are an affordable way to fill the gaps in your smile. Unfortunately, these options do not stop jawbone atrophy. Dental implants are the only treatment that supports your health by stopping further bone deterioration.

With traditional dentures and bridges, continued atrophy leads to changes in your facial features. This requires frequent adjustments to restorations to ensure they continue to fit properly. Over time the costs of these adjustments add up, not to mention the time it takes to go to the dentist.

Implant-supported dentures and bridges do not require such frequent adjustments. Anchored securely to an implant, they also do not shift around. For many patients who have chosen dental implants at our San Diego, CA dentistry practice, the long term health and quality of life benefits outweigh the upfront costs.
