Learn how Balboa Dental Care in San Diego, CA, can help transform your smile with dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are used to replace missing tooth roots. They provide much-needed stimulation for your jawbone and support lifelike restorations.
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.
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.
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.

Dental Implant Treatment Spans Several Months
It takes around four to six months for your implant posts to fuse with your jawbone.
Nervous About Treatment?
Sedation Can Help
Dental implants can be placed using only local anesthesia, but if you're feeling anxious about the procedure, you can receive oral conscious or nitrous oxide sedation. These options induce a state of deep relaxation to ensure your complete comfort.

To provide you with the best dental implants San Diego has to offer, our dentist works with trusted oral surgeons for more advanced cases.

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's office should be a priority. This allows Dr. Stragier to regularly check the condition of your restorations to ensure your dental implants provide you with a lifetime of benefits.
Complimentary Treatments Can Enhance Your Results
Do you want to address other dental concerns in addition to missing teeth? Work with Dr. Stragier to create a personalized full mouth reconstruction treatment plan. You can combine procedures to achieve your treatment goals in fewer appointments.
If you have mild to moderate dental misalignment, Invisalign clear aligners can comfortably and discreetly straighten your teeth. When combined with dental implants and restorations, this treatment can give you a gorgeous, uniform smile.
In addition to a full mouth reconstruction or Invisalign, you can also receive important preparatory work, such as a bone graft or sinus lift, at our San Diego practice. If you have low jawbone density, these procedures can restore lost tissue and make you eligible for dental implants. Contact us to learn more about our preparatory dental services.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost? Cost and Financing

An Investment in Your 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. The costs of these adjustments add up over time, not to mention the number of trips you have to make to the dentist.
Implant-supported dentures and bridges do not require such frequent adjustments. Because they are anchored securely to implants, 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.
