Missing Some Teeth? Dealing with Severe Tooth Damage?
Dental implants are a modern and long-lasting method for replacing one or more missing or damaged teeth. An implant is made from a high-tech material and takes the place of your tooth’s root. We work with several local, highly-trained oral surgeons who take great care of our patients when placing implants. Once the implant is ready, we will create a durable and beautiful restoration (like a crown, bridge, or denture) and that’s it! Your smile and health will be back to brand new.
Missing and severely damaged teeth are hard on your health (and can be really uncomfortable to live with). Our team offers expert dental implant restorations focused on helping you feel better — your body and smile will thank you!
Benefits of Dental Implants:
Prevent bone loss
Durable and last for years
Provide a steady, stable bite
Allow you to speak and chew naturally
Restore your smile to its natural beauty
What to Expect With a Dental Implant
From helping you understand what happens next to making sure you feel relaxed — your comfort is our priority. A dental implant treatment takes a few visits where we’ll:
- Work with your oral surgeon or refer you to an oral surgeon who will take great care placing the implant below the gumline.
- Keep in close contact with the oral surgeon, giving you time to heal as recommended.
- Craft a custom restoration to imitate the appearance of your original tooth.
- Place your restoration and provide you with a lovely new smile!
Paying for Your Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implants are a long-term investment in your health and well-being. Other tooth replacement options, like removable dentures, may be more affordable upfront, but can cost more over time due to upkeep.
A dental implant is extremely durable and meant to last for many years. This permanent tooth replacement option is very good for your health and the long-term success of your smile.
At Damonte Ranch Dental Care, we offer a great in-house membership plan to help you afford all your dental care, including 10% off your dental implant restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who needs dental implants?
Dental implants are needed when you have missing, badly damaged, or congenitally missing teeth.
Is it bad to have missing teeth?
A missing tooth affects more than just the look of your smile. The most pressing concern with missing teeth is bone loss. Without roots to support your jawbone, it will begin to deteriorate. Bone loss puts you at risk of losing even more teeth! It also commonly leads to gum disease.
How long is recovery time for dental implants?
Most of our patients return to work within a day or two after having dental implants placed at a local specialist’s office. However, it usually takes 3-6 months for your implant to fully integrate with the bone of your jaw. At that time, you’ll be ready for your final restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture.
How many teeth can be replaced with dental implants?
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or the entire arch of missing teeth. For those with multiple missing teeth, we often recommend implant-supported dentures as an effective solution.
What maintenance is required for dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way you care for your other teeth! Twice-a-day brushing and flossing and regular visits to your dentist. However, we do recommend avoiding smoking as this habit has been shown to affect the long-term health of the implant area.
How long do dental implants last?
Implants are some of the most durable and long-lasting dental treatments available. While nothing can be guaranteed, with proper care your dental implant can last upwards of 25 years in many cases!
