Valencia Dental Implants & Dentures

Restoring Smiles & Confidence

In the case of tooth damage or even loss, there is no need to panic. We realize that life happens. Teeth get chipped, broken, or need to be removed for a variety of reasons. We understand the anxieties felt when your smile suddenly isn’t what it used to be.

Several options are available to restore your mouth to the way it was. At the office of Marvin Tong, DDS, we offer both dental implants and dentures in Valencia to provide a confident solution when you need one most. Our compassionate team will work to not only restore your smile, but your confidence as well.

Valencia Dentures & Repair Procedures

One of the most common options at our dental office are dentures. Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be removed and reinserted into your mouth. Today’s technology has advanced the look and feel of dentures. Though they may not initially appear exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, they are very comfortable and unnoticeable. You can choose between full or partial dentures, which will depend on how many teeth are needing to be replaced. After impressions are taken of your mouth, dentures are custom made in a dental laboratory.

Our professional restorative dentistry team can help you decide between:

  • Conventional Full Dentures: Placed in your mouth after extracting remaining teeth and the tissue has healed, which may take several months
  • Immediate Full Dentures: Inserted immediately after remaining teeth are removed
  • Partial Denture: Replacement teeth rest on a metal framework and are placed on top of the remaining natural teeth

Already have dentures but need a quick fix? Depending on the repair, Marvin Tong, DDS, offers same day denture repairs for your convenience.

Dental Implants in Valencia May be Right for You

Dental implants are another possible route to take to restore your smile. This is a great option for patients who may only be missing a few teeth, or need a single tooth extracted and replaced. They are also more permanent than dentures, as they can’t be removed. The procedure involves fusing a titanium post with the bone to replicate the root of the missing tooth.

Dental implants are a great option because they:

  • Maintain the stability of the bone
  • Withstand greater chewing forces than other tooth replacement options
  • Serve as a permanent fixture
  • Prevent food from getting trapped under the replacement

Our talented team at Marvin Tong, DDS, also offers implant restorations, where we put a crown over top of the pre-existing implants.

How Do I Care for Dental Implants?

In order to maintain a healthy smile, it is important to take proper care of your dental implants. Be sure to follow regular dental hygiene practices such as brushing twice a day and flossing. It is also recommended that you use a small interdental brush in order to cover hard-to-reach areas. Refrain from chewing on foods that could potentially damage your implants, such as hard candy.

Commonly Asked Questions

Can I get dental implants if I'm only missing a few teeth?

Yes, dental implants are an excellent option for patients who are missing just a few teeth or require a single tooth extraction and replacement. At Dr. Marvin Tong, DDS we can tailor the dental implant procedure to match your specific needs, whether it's for a single tooth or multiple teeth. The titanium post used in the procedure fuses with the bone, offering a secure and natural-feeling solution.

How do I know if I should choose dentures or dental implants?

The decision between dentures and dental implants depends on various factors, including the number of teeth you need to replace, your oral health, and personal preferences. Our restorative dentistry team in Valencia can guide you through the options. Dentures can be full or partial and are removable, while dental implants are fixed and offer a more permanent solution. We'll help you make an informed decision that best suits your lifestyle and dental needs.
