Reasons to replace missing teeth
What are Dental Implants and how do they work?
Dental implants are a great solution for missing teeth and are held in place by small titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone and bound to the bone to create a foundation for artificial teeth. This process creates a more natural appearance and functioning replacement for missing teeth. Achieve the confidence of a full, healthy smile with dental implants!

How do Implant Overdentures work?
To achieve a full denture without a bulky restoration, implant overdentures can be connected to dental implants to secure a full denture through the creation of a stable connection. At Dr. Zak Dental Care – San Diego we make sure you know the benefits of implant overdentures and how they differ from complete dentures. Since complete dentures can often decay quickly and become unstable, implant overdentures are often recommended as a better option.
Removable Partial Denture
Are removable partial dentures good for patients who are missing teeth?
Dentures are a great option for you if you are missing teeth. A removable partial denture is the most effective and economical tooth replacement option available to you. They are very comfortable, but an adjustment period is expected, as any foreign object will initially feel unnatural. A removable partial denture requires careful and routine care. At Dr. Zak Dental Care – San Diego we will show you on how to properly remove and clean your partial dentures after every meal so that decay does not occur.
What is a fixed bridge?
