What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an orthodontic replacement for a missing tooth. It is comprised of a titanium post, which is implanted within the jawbone, and a prosthetic tooth that is attached to the post. Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth, even a full set.
What are the advantages of dental implants?

Yorba Linda dental implants can improve your appearance and your confidence and make it easier to eat and speak. What’s more, dental implants will never succumb to dental decay.
What is the success rate for dental implants?
Although the success rate varies between individuals, in most cases, the success rate is between 90% and 95%.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
If you are missing a single tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, you are a good candidate for dental implants. You can discuss your specific needs with Dr. Hamaty.
Do dental implants last long?
Dental implants are very durable. They are not susceptible to decay although you will need to take care of your gums for the implants to retain their stability. A long as you continue with a good at-home oral hygiene routine and visit your dentist every six months, your Yorba Linda dental implants should last a lifetime.
