From the replacement of a single missing tooth to extensive reconstruction and replacement of several or even all teeth, Carmel Mountain Dentistry, which serves North County San Diego including the communities of Rancho Bernardo, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Poway, Rancho Penasquitos, and Scripps Ranch, offers the healthiest and most intelligent treatment solutions. Dr. Jared Bunker provides the most comprehensive treatments for dental implants in San Diego.

Dental implants offer a natural looking replacement for adult teeth.  In addition, implants restore functionality to the jaw, making speaking, eating and chewing easier.  Most implants are comprised of a screw that is embedded into the bone, and a post, to which the prosthesis is attached.

Biomet 3i implants are unique because the microsurface of the cone-shaped screw contains an innovative bone-bonding component.  This means that implants can be placed in areas with low bone density, sparing the patient the mess and misery of wearing poorly fitting dentures.  Additionally, the bone-bonding component means quicker recovery time after the implant is placed.

To welcome new patients to our office, we are able to extend a few attractive offers that allow an introduction to our practice and a chance to decide that Carmel Mountain Dentistry is the place for you and your family.

Why should I choose 3i dental implants?

There are a wide variety of dental implants in the marketplace, but 3i have an almost unparalleled success rate.  Almost 98% of 3i implants are fitted successfully and last for a lifetime. 3i implants contain a unique feature, which is embedded in the surface of the screw.  Implant screws made by other companies are sprayed with calcium phosphate to enhance the bone integration process.  However, 3i screws actually contain calcium phosphate, which means that delamination is less likely to occur.

Additionally, the cone-shaped 3i screw adds precision to the placement of implants and ensures that the final prosthesis is comfortable and can withstand pressure.

Here are some of the other benefits associated with 3i implants:

  • Better oral health.
  • Higher success rate.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Multiple 3i implants can be placed during a visit.
  • Natural-looking implants.
  • No adhesives or mess.
  • Prevention of bone loss and gum recession.
  • Sturdy, functional prosthetic teeth.

How are 3i dental implants placed?

The procedure for placing 3i dental implants is similar to many other implant procedures.  It is usually performed in two short visits, the first visit being typically an hour in length and the second taking around thirty minutes.

After Dr. Bunker and the periodontist have analyzed the X-rays and diagnostic results, the implant root can be inserted.  This procedure will be performed under local anesthetic, unless another type of sedation is preferred.

Generally, 3i dental implants enhance the healing process, which means that the second treatment phase can be completed around 10-12 weeks after the first.

When the healing process is complete, the new dental prosthesis (usually a crown) will be created by Dr. Luban from bite impressions.  A tiny screw will be used to secure the prosthesis onto the abutment.  Any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure the prosthesis is comfortable, and the 3i dental implant will be secure for a lifetime.

If you have questions about the Biomet 3i Implants, or dental implants in general, please ask Dr. Luban, Dr. Bunker or any of us at Carmel Mountain Dentistry.
