Dr. Derek M. Lichter offers dental implants to help those who want to replace their teeth with a permanent, reliable, and natural-looking restoration. If you could be considered as one of these people, we are happy to help you!

Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that replace both your tooth and its root. They provide a strong and durable foundation, and they also enhance the appearance of your smile. They are convenient restorations that make eating, talking, smiling, and drinking much easier! Dental implants can also improve many characteristics of yourself and your smile, including:

  • Your speech
  • Your appearance
  • Your comfort
  • Your oral health
  • Your self-esteem

These are very beneficial restorations that can give you the results you desire. The process involved in placing the implants does, however, require some time to complete. The implant post is first surgically placed in the jawbone. Following a period of healing that usually lasts 3-6 months, our dentist will place the implant restoration on top of the post. This replaces the crown of the missing tooth, or the portion that is visible above the gums.

We care about you and your oral health, and we are delighted to replace your missing teeth with dental implants! If you have any questions regarding dental implants in Chula Vista, California, please do not hesitate to give us a call. We look forward to giving you the smile of your dreams!
