Dental Implants

At Bonita Medical Center, we offer dental implant placement and restoration. Whether you are missing one, several, or all of your teeth, we can create an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs. Implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically embedded in the jaw, providing unmatched support for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implant-supported restoration look and feel natural so you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Dental implants also stimulate your jaw bone to prevent its resorption, a condition that results from long-term tooth loss. Learn More About Dental Implants

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting is a surgical treatment that supplements your natural jaw bone tissue. Bone grafting is often used after tooth extractions or in preparation for dental implant placement. While treatment can be completed in a single visit, it will take several months following surgery for your bone graft to fuse with your natural tissue. Learn More About Bone Grafting

Bonita offers local and general anesthesia to help you relax during surgery. Learn More About Wisdom Teeth Extraction
