Dental Implants in Escondido, CA
At Douglas G. Hope, we know that the first step in tooth replacement can be intimidating. Tooth loss can be an emotional experience–you may feel embarrassed, anxious, or less willing to be outgoing or social. That is why our practice works alongside our patients to show them the support, care, and respect that can transform their confidence as we transform their health.
Today’s options in modern dentistry have afforded patients the opportunity to pick from a variety of tooth replacement options that suit their lifestyle and budget. From partial and full dentures, to dental crowns and implants, you are free to choose what is right for you!
Whole Body Health
Your dental health affects your whole body health! If you don’t deal with your dental issues now, you may unintentionally compromise your overall health and create health issues are costly to correct. In addition to gum disease and tooth decay, neglecting to replace missing teeth can lead to tooth loss, a misaligned bite, and a prematurely aged appearance.
In addition, your normal daily routine is severely impacted. Even one missing tooth hampers your ability to chew and speak.
A Superior Solution
Dental implants are a permanent dental solution, where a titanium post that mimics a healthy tooth root is inserted into the jawbone to support a strong dental crown. This option, highly preferred by dentists and patients alike, is not only natural looking, but reliable and durable.
Dental implants do not slip or shift out of place, and are the only tooth replacement option to fuse with the bone in the jaw. You can restore and retain the natural shape of your face and prevent future tooth and bone loss.
Your implant will be custom designed to look, feel and function just like your natural teeth.
Invest In Your Health
Dentures require goopy glue and daily removal for thorough cleaning. What a pain! With proper at home care–brushing twice a day and flossing–and professional care with regular cleanings at your family dentist, your dental implant can last your entire lifetime.
What to Expect
Dr. Hope will conduct a gentle, comprehensive exam and consultation. He will examine your teeth and gums, discuss treatment options, and answer your questions.
Advancements in technology have created treatments so sophisticated that they eliminate or greatly reduce discomfort. In addition, you can elect a form of dental sedation to guarantee your sense of relaxation and comfort. Dr. Hope will then remove any teeth that need extraction, and then clean and disinfect the area. Your dental implant will then be expertly placed into the jaw bone, where it will bond with the jaw for a period of several weeks before your dental crowns are secured to it.
High Tech, High Touch
At Douglas Hope, DDS, we utilize a Galileos Scanner, a screening tool that provides our expert team with a 3D scan of your mouth. Imagine: a detailed map of your gums, teeth, bones, and mouth are available for your viewing–it’s no longer an X-ray image that may not make much sense to you!
The precision of our Galileos Scanner also assists us in placing your dental implant placement for a high degree of premium dental care.
