Implant-Supported Dentures in Tustin, CA
Dr. Choi provides several types of high-quality implant-supported dentures. Dr. Choi’s dentures are natural-looking, comfortable and stable and will give you a great-looking smile!
- Removable, Implant-Supported Dentures—These dentures snap onto implants in the jaw, making them completely stable in the mouth. They can be removed for cleaning.
- Denture Stabilization—Dr. Choi can stabilize your existing dentures with implants. This gives your denture more chewing power and keeps it from moving around in your mouth when you eat and speak.
- Fixed-In Implant-Supported Teeth–Fixed-in teeth are the most lifelike form of tooth replacement. They provide nearly fully chewing power and can be brushed like regular teeth. Once placed, they will never have to come out of your mouth except for routine maintenance performed by the doctor.
- New Teeth in One Day–Using the advanced New Teeth in One Day procedure, Dr. Choi can perform any necessary extractions and provide a full set of fixed-in teeth—all in the space of a single day.
Experienced, Highly Skilled Implant Dentist
Dr. Choi has over 20 years of experience placing implants and implant-supported dentures. He attended the prestigious Misch International Implant Institute and has thousands of hours of implant training under his belt. Dr. Choi is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, a status that is only awarded to select dentists after they have demonstrated the highest level of knowledge and practical skill in dental implant treatment.
Dr. Choi has been providing implant education to other dentists for over 17 years, including 10 years as an assistant professor at the USC School of Dentistry. He has given presentations around the country on all aspects of implant dentistry, including at the annual meetings of the American Dental Association and California Dental Association.
State-of-the-Art Implant-Supported Denture Procedure
To ensure a predictable outcome, Dr. Choi uses state-of-the-art 3D imaging and 3D treatment planning technology.
3D imaging (a dental 3D CT scan) allows Dr. Choi to determine the amount of bone in the jaw and provides the location of muscle and nerves. He then uses special 3D implant planning software to virtually create the dentures and precisely plan out the position of each implant, with the end result always in mind.
Using the 3D software, Dr. Choi also creates a surgical guide to aid him in the placement of the implants during the surgical procedure. This makes the surgery fast, efficient and accurate.
Removable Implant-Supported Dentures
A removable implant-supported denture replaces a full arch of missing teeth. Dr. Choi will place between three and four implants per arch and attach the denture using special snap-in attachments. The denture can be snapped in and out at any time, and is usually removed by the patient at night for cleaning.
Because this denture is so stable, it will not slip while you eat or talk. There is no upper palate to inhibit you from properly tasting your food, and you will be able to eat a wider variety of foods, which means you can enjoy a healthier and tastier diet. Removable implant-supported dentures provide up to 60 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth, depending on the number of implants supporting them.
Dr. Choi can stabilize an existing denture by placing implants in the jaw and retrofitting the denture with special snap-in attachments. The implants keep the dentures from moving around and they increase chewing power.
Fixed-In Implant-Supported Teeth
Dentures that are fixed onto implants are the most stable, comfortable and natural-feeling replacement option for a full arch of missing teeth. Dr. Choi places between four and eight implants on each arch and permanently fixes the new teeth onto these implants.
Fixed-in teeth provide up to 90 percent of the chewing power of natural teeth, enabling you to eat whatever you want. The teeth can be made from either high-quality, beautiful acrylic, or state-of-the-art dental porcelain for the ultimate natural look. They can be brushed like real teeth, and you never have to take them out.
New Teeth in One Day
Dr. Choi uses the New Teeth in One Day procedure to perform any needed extractions and provide fixed-in new teeth in one day. The New Teeth in One Day procedure uses four specially angled implants that anchor the new teeth stably in the mouth. Because of the special technique used, bone grafting is usually not necessary, and nearly everyone is a candidate for the procedure.
