Guided Bone Regeneration
If you could benefit from dental implants but cannot currently receive them due to poor bone structure in your jaw, our dentist may recommend a guided bone regeneration procedure. Often in the form of a bone graft, these treatments allow many patients to receive implants successfully. To learn more about bone regeneration and bone grafting in Valencia, California, please contact JR Dental today at 661-290-3355. Dr. Jean Pierre Rwigema looks forward to meeting you.
A bone graft is an oral surgery procedure that may be required if your jawbone is not dense or thick enough. During a bone graft, we will transplant a piece of bone from another area of your jaw or your body to your jawbone. While we typically see best results with bone taken from your own body, we can also utilize artificial bone material or bone fragments from a tissue bank if needed. Your jawbone then grows together with the grafted bone tissue, creating a stronger, more stable foundation.
You may need a bone graft if your bone density is insufficient to support a dental implant or another type of treatment. While bone grafts are most commonly needed for implant dentistry, they may also be required for certain types of periodontal therapy when bone has been lost due to gum disease. If your jawbone is not strong or thick enough to support a dental implant, our dentist may recommend a bone graft. After a tooth is lost or extracted, the jawbone begins to resorb, or deteriorate, at the site of the tooth extraction. This must be corrected before the dental implant is placed. To learn more about bone grafting and to discover whether dental implants and bone grafting are right for your smile, we invite you to call or visit us today. Our dentist and team are eager to care for your smile!
If many or all of your teeth are missing or compromised, our dentist may recommend implant-supported dentures in Valencia, California. There are many types of implant dentures available, from removable overdentures to state-of-the-art options such as All-on4® and Trefoil™. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Jean Pierre Rwigema and see if implant-supported dentures are right for you, please call our office today at 661-290-3355. We are anxious to help you smile again!
Dentures have long been an affordable and reliable solution for patients with many missing teeth. They are a removable prosthetic that allows you to speak, eat and smile with confidence. However, many patients experience a lack of stability when wearing dentures. In these cases, Dr. Jean Pierre Rwigema may recommend anchoring your dentures with dental implants.
Implants can be used to hold dentures in place while they are in your mouth. Your dentures are still easily removable, but you will be able to eat and speak without concern for slippage. Implants also help combat the bone loss that naturally occurs when teeth are gone. In some cases, your current dentures can even be retrofitted for use with implants.
The All-on-4 treatment concept uses only four dental implants to secure a full arch of replacement teeth. This technique allows patients who might not otherwise be candidates for implant dentures to receive benefits. It also means that overall treatment and recovery time is reduced. In some cases, replacement teeth can even be placed on the same day as the implants.
The Trefoil concept takes the simplicity of All-on-4 even further. With the use of cutting-edge techniques and materials, Trefoil allows your complete denture to be supported with only three implants. Only a handful of practices around the country have received the training necessary to perform this procedure successfully, so we are very excited to be able to offer it here!

Many patients find themselves in a situation where they have several consecutive teeth that are missing or compromised. If this is your case, multi-tooth implant replacement may be for you. Our dentist can use an implant-supported dental bridge to help you achieve the great looking, healthy smile you deserve.
Dental bridges are one of the most common solutions for missing teeth. They traditionally include one or more false teeth anchored to neighboring natural teeth, but there are many circumstances where this type of anchoring is not possible. Thanks to dental implant technology, we can securely replace several teeth in a row without impacting healthy neighboring teeth.
Dr. Jean Pierre Rwigema will begin by determining whether you are a candidate for implants. If your bone structure cannot currently support implants, he may recommend a bone regeneration treatment. Our team will then determine the placement of your implants. After a few months, the implants will be fully-integrated into your jaw bone and able to securely support your new fixed bridge. This restoration will be made of strong, beautiful materials that match your smile and feel natural.
Be sure to clean your new appliance every day as part of your normal oral hygiene routine. By properly maintaining it, the bridge can last a lifetime.
