If you have lost one or even several teeth and are searching for a durable, natural-looking, permanent restorative solution, dental implants are the best option available. Each dental implant consists of three main parts: the titanium, screw-like implant, the abutment, and the specially designed crown. These three parts secure together to provide an aesthetically appealing look. The benefit of using medical-grade titanium is that it will not corrode over time, and its properties allow it to naturally bond within the jaw bone which offers a sturdy, long-term solution. At OC Oral Surgery, our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are experienced specialists who are more than qualified to perform dental implant placement. To make a consultation appointment with one of our surgeons, receive a thorough oral exam, and discuss your options for dental implant placement, please contact our office.
Your third molars, better known as wisdom teeth, are the last teeth to erupt in the back of your mouth. Unfortunately, most teens and young adults do not realize they have these additional molars. The average adult mouth does not have sufficient space to house wisdom teeth, causing numerous complications. At OC Oral Surgery, we recommend that wisdom teeth removal happens early. This precautionary measure will only help to ensure that potential future problems like infection, tooth impaction, dental decay, gum disease, chronic pain, and misalignment of healthy teeth do not occur. To determine if and when your wisdom teeth are developing, Drs. Ahn and Girard will give you a comprehensive oral exam, assess your oral health, and take an X-ray of your mouth and jaws. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons are specially trained to administer anesthesia to ensure you are at ease and have a comfortable wisdom tooth extraction procedure. To schedule your wisdom tooth extraction or request a consultation appointment, please contact our office today.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept is a unique method that offers a full-arch dental restoration to patients who have lost or are in the process of losing all or most of their teeth. This innovative technique restores the full upper and/or lower arch of teeth in just one surgical procedure. The All-on-4® Treatment Concept offers patients a significantly reduced recovery time and a fully restored smile. You will receive your dental implants and a temporary denture that will attach to the implants and allow you to begin benefiting from your new teeth right away. As the surgical sites heal under the temporary denture and the implants bond with your jaw bone, a permanent denture will be custom designed and manufactured specifically for you. The full-arch restoration greatly improves the patient’s overall quality of life and self-confidence. At our office in Mission Viejo, California, our extensively trained oral and maxillofacial surgeons are available to assess your oral health and determine if you are a candidate for the All-on-4® Treatment Concept.
