Implant Dentistry-Dental Implants in San Diego, CA
Whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire row of teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution to help you restore a full, attractive smile. Our mouth restoration specialists at Altrock & Fabb Dental use dental implants to recreate the natural appearance and function of real teeth.
If you want a teeth replacement solution that lasts the rest of your life, dental implants are the answer.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth designed to look exactly like a natural tooth. Each implant replaces a single tooth and is composed of three pieces that fit together: the screw, abutment, and crown.
The implant itself is a titanium screw placed deep into your gum tissue. Over the span of a few months, it fuses permanently with your jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. This stimulation also supports the jaw bone and protects the structure of your face.
An abutment is attached to the titanium screw to connect the screw and your custom-made crown. The crown is the portion seen and felt as your tooth, so each crown is customized to mimic the appearance and function of a real tooth.

Missing teeth take a serious toll on your quality of life. Without a full set of teeth, chewing, smiling, and speaking become difficult and embarrassing. Fortunately, dentures offer a way to replace several missing teeth or an entire row of teeth.
Dentures use a high tech plastic base to replicate gum tissue and support a full set of durable, natural-looking teeth. Dentures stay in place by forming a seal with the existing natural gums.
You can choose partial, full, or implant-supported dentures to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile.
There are many reasons to consider dentures as your tooth replacement solution:
– Enhance your quality of life with the ability to eat comfortably, speak clearly, and smile with confidence.
– Prevent jawbone recession with implant-supported dentures
– Improve the appearance of sunken cheeks and puckered lips with the support of dentures
– Address the full spectrum of tooth loss, from localized areas to a complete arch
Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are different from standard dentures. Instead of forming a seal with your gum issue to stay in place, implant-supported dentures are attached to implants inserted into the jawbone.
Each implant consists of a titanium implant that is surgically placed into the jaw to fuse with the bone and act as your tooth’s “roots”. Your dentures are affixed to the implants for ease of use, comfort, and durability.
Implant-supported dentures offer unique benefits for people recovering from tooth loss:
– Strengthen jawbone by stimulating bone growth and preventing degradation.
– Total comfort; no shifting or falling out
– Natural appearance
Your Altrock Fabb Dental tooth replacement expert will examine the condition and health of your mouth to let you know if you’re a good candidate for implant-supported dentures.
While complete dentures help patients who need all teeth replaced, partial dentures replace a smaller number of teeth using the same type of device.
The smaller base of a partial denture is designed to match the color of the gums, and the teeth are created to closely resemble existing teeth in the mouth. There are a few different techniques used to install partial dentures, which can be permanent or removable based on your needs.
