New To Dental Implants? This Is Where To Start

While not intended to be a substitute for a personalized, face-to-face consultation with Dr. Aldo Espinosa, this FAQ does provide answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about dental implants. We hope you find this resource helpful! For additional information, please contact us directly in our Chula Vista, CA dental clinic. We’re eager to get you the help you need.

A dental implant is a sturdy replacement tooth. Dental implants have three parts: a threaded, screw-like titanium post that replaces your tooth root, a highly durable crown, and an abutment, which links the other two parts together.

Dental implants are the most natural-looking and durable replacement for missing or severely damaged or decayed teeth available today. They enable you to eat, speak, laugh, and smile without discomfort or concern. Dental implants can restore your confidence and boost your quality of life.

Dental implants are made of top-quality materials. With proper care, they can last your lifetime!

Dental implant posts are inserted directly into your jaw and eventually become a permanent part of your body. You can normally be fitted with temporary crowns (or restorations) the day of your dental implant placement, so you can resume normal activities almost immediately. Your final restorations will be placed at a later appointment after the implant site has completely healed.

We offer IV sedation, nitrous oxide, oral anesthesia, local anesthesia, or a combination of these to keep you stress- and pain-free during your placement procedure. Be assured your comfort is always our top priority here at Bonita Del Rey Dental Care.

If you’ve suffered bone loss in your jaw, we will need to rebuild the bone through bone grafting before your jaw can support implants. In addition, any unsalvageable teeth that you plan to have replaced will need to be removed to make room for the dental implants. Both of these procedures can generally be completed the same day as your dental implant placement.

This depends on the current state of your teeth. After a thorough examination, Dr. Espinosa will determine whether you need one, several, or all of your teeth replaced with dental implants.

Many factors determine your final cost, including the number of implants you need and any additional procedures that we may need to perform. The best way to determine your actual cost is through a personalized consultation with Dr. Espinosa.

We can generally place your dental implants in a single visit. The dental implants can take up to six months to completely heal and permanently fuse with your jawbone.

Give your dental implants the same care and attention you’d give natural teeth: brush and floss twice daily and return to our Chula Vista, CA office for regularly scheduled cleanings and exams.

Contact us for a consultation! We’ll listen to your needs, conduct a thorough evaluation, and determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants. From there, we can schedule your dental implant placement.

This is my very first appointment I met the staff for the first time today. The office manager Jessica was so nice and extremely helpful she started off by giving me a tour of the facility (Which by the way was extremely nice with Modern equipment, beautiful manufacturing area, Just an overall professional working facility Furnished with quality equipment ). I was very impressed. Next, I receive the most extensive set of x-rays and photos of my mouth that I have ever received absolutely amazing the quality of their work. Then received an examination from the dentist after concluding his assessment, he thoroughly explained (in the order of importance ) the procedures necessary to reach my goal for a set of new teeth . The dentist was personable, knowledgeable, and very clear as to what needs to be done He took the time to make sure that I understood what the problem was and how it can be fixed. The Level of attention to my situation was very much appreciated. After saying goodbye to the dentist, Jessica then sat with me took she the time to once again explain the procedures that were recommended by the dentist, she explained the costs associated with my upcoming treatment plan, she provided me with payment options That would fit my budget. My treatment starts Monday. I look forward to getting this project underway. The Dentist and staff members were absolutely top shelf. I must say I have visited a variety of dentist throughout my life and Bonita Del Rey Dental Care just gave me a feeling of absolute comfort. I am looking forward To receiving the Care that I need Through Bonita Del Rey Dental Care. So I’d like to say thank you for the pleasant welcome. See you on Monday.

I’ve had the most amazing experience. The friendliest staff, two of the best dentist that I’ve ever worked with. They made me feel comfortable, relaxed, and stress-free throughout my entire procedure. Jessica helped me navigate the financial side of things and now I have a beautiful smile, and don’t have to hide my face anymore after years of being self-conscious, nervous and ashamed of my teeth. I wholeheartedly would recommend this place to everyone and anyone who needs help with their dental care. You will definitely leave their office smiling. I leave smiling every time I visit.

How many people say they enjoyed their visit to the dentist? I did. As always I was greeted with smiles and everyone knew my name. Almost like family! Also, they are very informative. Doctor Espinosa as always, greets you with a smile and a warm welcome! I had a minor emergency on a Saturday night. That night I called and left a message about some broken teeth. The first thing Monday morning, I got a call from Bonita Del Rey and they had me in by 2:00 in the afternoon and out by 4:00 p.m. the care was excellent as always, and I left there with a full smile. Thank you again. Painless and happy as always after a visit for me.
