Tooth loss affects the appearance of your smile and makes it difficult to speak and chew comfortably.
Thanks to modern dentistry, tooth loss can be addressed with dental implants that replace tooth roots and support restorations.
At Elegant Dental Care in Loma Linda, CA, our dentists restore smiles using dental implants. Here's what implants can do for you...
The Benefits of Dental Implants
A Lifelong Solution
When properly maintained, dental implants have been proven to last for 40 years or longer. While the restoration attached to the implant will eventually need to be replaced, the implant itself can provide a lifetime of support.
Traditional dentures are not secured directly to the jaw, which can lead to embarrassment when they slip out of place or click against surrounding teeth. Implants are securely attached to the jawbone, so they allow dentures to function like natural teeth.
Jawbone RetentionWhen a tooth is lost, the jawbone can begin to atrophy at the site of the missing tooth root. Dental implants provide the necessary stimulation to keep the jaw strong and healthy.
After dental implant treatment, you'll no longer have to hide your smile because of a missing tooth. You can feel better about yourself when you look in the mirror and take on the world with more confidence. Many of our implant patients choose to combine the treatment with cosmetic procedures for an even greater boost of self-esteem.

Real-Life Reviews from Dental Implant Patients
I've been a patient here at elegant dental since 2011 to complete an implant my previous dentist could not complete. I was so impressed with the genuine care and concern I received, I actually changed my insurance to become a full on patient. I have never been so pleased with a dentist as I am with Dr. Sohn and his team.View On Google
They have treated me as how they would treat their own family. This is the first dentist that I have been to, (and it has been many) that the dentist personally called me at home the evening after the implant procedure to see how I was doing. They are always friendly and the staff is very professional. I would recommend them

Kinds of Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are smaller in diameter than regular implants and are a good alternative for patients who do not have sufficient bone density to undergo traditional implant placement.
If you are missing a full arch of teeth, you do not need an individual implant for every single missing tooth. Rather, a full denture can be securely attached to only four implants using the All-on-4 treatment method.
Minimally Invasive Implants
Developments in dentistry continually allow dentists to use less invasive techniques during implant surgery. Some of the newer implant designs are able to be inserted into the jawbone in less time and with less discomfort than ever before.

For patients concerned about metal allergies, we offer dental implants made of white zirconia.
