Rancho Santa Margarita, CA Dentist Dr. Ivan Ho Offers Dental Implants for Full Arch Tooth Loss

Dr. Ivan Ho, Dentist at Platinum Dental offers permanent full arch restorations for California patients using the latest dental implant technology


Rancho Santa Margarita, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/01/2015 --Dr. Ivan Ho, Rancho Santa Margarita dentist at Platinum Dental is helping patients who have experienced full arch tooth loss finally find a better, permanent solution to restoring their smiles with dental implants. Prior to the availability of dental implants, patients who experienced the loss of their top or bottom arches of teeth due to decay, health problems, or aging had to rely on removable dentures which present a whole host of problems and lifestyle interference. However, with dental implants, Dr. Ho is able to give patients a permanent smile again using fixed bridges that are designed to function just like natural teeth.

An estimated 20 million Americans currently rely on full or partial dentures each day for regular activities like eating and speaking. While dentures do restore aesthetics and partial function to patient's smiles after tooth loss, it is still common for them to become loose, ill-fitted, cause pain for the patient, and also prevent them from eating foods like fresh vegetables and fruits as well as tough meat, hard nuts, etc. Additionally, the adhesive pastes, strips, and cushions required for removable dentures often leave the patient with much to be desired. Using dental implants, Dr. Ho is able to anchor small metal studs directly into the patients jawbone that are used to permanently fix bridges, or a series of artificial teeth, directly to the patient's bone structure, allowing them to have the full function and strength they once had with their natural teeth.

To complete the procedure, Dr. Ho surgically installs a series of 4-6 small implants on the upper or lower arch of the mouth to replace the lost tooth roots. While these implants heal and fuse with the bone, patients are provided with temporary teeth that allow them to speak and chew properly. Once the implants are properly healed, Dr. Ho attaches the bridges that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
