Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants in Oxnard
Missing teeth can impact a patient’s oral health, overall health, and quality of life. Cosmetic dentistry is not the only way to solve this problem. Dental implants provide the most natural replacement options for patients with lost and missing teeth. An experienced restorative dentist in Oxnard, Dr. Haddad is a dental implants specialist and has been providing comprehensive implant dentistry treatment plans for over 15 years.
Dental implants are a secure, natural-looking option to replace missing teeth. Many patients prefer implants to other prosthetics because they look and feel just like natural teeth. Dental implants can renew your appearance, rejuvenate your oral health, and return your ability to eat, laugh, and smile with confidence.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted into healthy jaw bone structure. The biocompatible material fuses with the jaw bone forming a secure and stable bond for a permanent dental restoration.
The post acts as a replacement root structure and helps to stabilize and promote natural bone regeneration. Dental implants are then fit with a high-quality customized dental restoration for a natural-looking and comfortable prosthetic tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a permanent dental restoration that can be used to replace missing teeth. Dental implants support a stable, beautiful and functional bite. Dental implants can help patients enjoy improved speech, self-confidence, and enjoy unrestricted dietary habits.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, or a whole arch of upper or lower missing teeth. Implants have revolutionized the way dentists replace missing teeth due to their natural appearance and long-term health benefits.
When possible, dental implants are the preferred method for replacing lost teeth. Ill-fitting dentures can also be secured using dental implants for improved aesthetic, function and confidence.
The Benefits of Dental Implants Include:
- Natural looking and durable results
- Promotes natural bone regeneration
- Reduces the risk of gum disease and receding gums

Types of Oxnard Dental Implants
The type of dental implant you receive will depend on the number and location of your missing teeth. Dr. Haddad will help you determine which missing tooth replacement option is best suited for your oral health, lifestyle and budget.
Single Tooth Dental Implant: A single dental implant is used to replace one tooth. The titanium post is surgically implanted into the root socket. Once healed, a dental crown will be custom designed and secured to the implant.
Multiple Teeth Dental Implant: For patients missing multiple teeth there may be a few options depending on the location of missing teeth. A dental bridge can be secured using implants or multiple single tooth implants may be used.
All-On-Four Implants: The All-On-Four dental implant procedure allows patients who are missing all of their teeth to receive the benefits of dental implants. Through strategic planning, Dr. Haddad utilizes the healthiest bone structure to implant four titanium screws into the jaw to permanently secure a denture.
The Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure is typically completed in several visits to our Oxnard, CA dentist office. Your initial visit will begin with a comprehensive dental exam to determine the best course of treatment to meet your oral health needs and cosmetic goals. Dr. Haddad will build a personalized treatment plan that will help restore form, function, and health to your smile.
The next step is the surgical implantation of the dental implant. Dr. Haddad offers comprehensive implant procedures under one roof. In most cases, Dr. Haddad will perform the surgical implantation of the dental implant.
The implant will be placed into a healthy and clean root socket. The implant will take 3-6 months to fully heal. Dr. Haddad may fit you with a temporary dental restoration depending on the placement of the missing tooth.
Once your implant(s) are fully healed, Dr. Haddad will custom design and fabricate your final dental restoration. Dr. Haddad uses the most modern dental materials.
All dental restorations are color-matched and shaped to blend beautifully with your natural smile. Using an abutment, your final restoration will be permanently secured to your implant for a natural looking and functioning prosthetic tooth.
If additional dental services are needed to restore your smile, Dr. Haddad will coordinate these procedures to ensure a successful and stable dental implant result.
Dental Implant FAQs
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Dr. Haddad will evaluate the condition of your smile to determine if dental implants are the right solution for your needs. Most patients are candidates for receiving dental implants. If there are concerns or issues that could affect your result, Dr. Haddad offers sinus lifts and bone grafting to re-establish a stable oral foundation for placing implants.
Are dental implants covered by dental insurance?
In most cases, traditional dental insurance benefits do not cover the cost of dental implants. However, Dr. Haddad accepts payment with Medicare PPO supplemental for implant-related treatments and the placement of implants. The total cost of your implant procedure will be determined based on the location and number of missing teeth.
Our dental care team will provide detailed pricing for your affordable dental implant procedure so you know there are no hidden costs or fees.
Are dental implants painful?
Patients are often amazed at how comfortable they were during and after their treatment. The actual dental implant procedure is often less painful than having an extraction. You are likely to experience some tenderness and swelling immediately following the procedure, but these symptoms should subside within 2 – 3 days.
I have more than one missing tooth, can I still use dental implants?
Yes, a dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth or all of your missing teeth by supporting a denture or over-bridge. If the dental implants are being used to support a denture or over-bridge, Dr. Mahnke may place as few as four dental implants to secure the restoration.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last 20 or more years with good oral hygiene. This includes routine dental visits where Dr. Haddad can monitor the condition of your dental health and your implant, spotting concerns early on.
Do dental implants require special care and maintenance?
No! Dental implants only require the same oral hygiene that you practice every day. Brushing and flossing and visiting the dentist at least twice a year for professional cleanings can help keep the gum and bone healthy to support your dental implant for many years to come.
Will anyone be able to tell I have a fake tooth?
Our dental implants specialist uses the most modern dental materials for all dental restorations. Made from high-quality ceramic your restoration will look and feel like a natural tooth. Your dental restoration will be designed to blend with your smile.
Are dental implants permanent?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent dental restoration. With proper maintenance and oral hygiene, many patients enjoy their implant for life. Dental implants are surgically implanted and fuse with the bone structure of the jaw.
