   Dr. Daniel Huigens DDS in LaVerne, CA has been trained in placing implants. It is important to know that Dr. Huigens uses only high quality implants made in the USA. Affordable dental implants should not be the cheapest implants. There are several makers of implants, some have been used for a long time and proven on there performance. Just the components of one implant can cost as much as $400 for the dentist. Affordable dental implants should not in include just the implant but an implant crown along with the part that holds the crown on to the implant should be affordable.

    For people that wear dentures there is even a more affordable dental implant called a mini implant can hold a denture on until you want to take it out. See the Mini Dental Implants page at Daniel Huigens DDS.com

                                                                       

  What is an implant?

 Implants are made from a type of metal with a special coating  and replaces the root of a missing tooth. Bone  then actually grows on to the implant over a few months time. A healing cap is placed on the implant or sometimes a temporary crown is placed during healing.  After about 4 months the implant is ready to be restored with an implant crown.

    Implants can replace an existing tooth or teeth, sometimes an implant can be placed at the time a tooth is taken out.

       Daniel Huigens DDS will also refer you to a specialist for more complicated implants requiring an oral surgeon. 

  "4 on 4" is a term you may have been hearing on the tv or radio  where 4 or more implants are placed to secure a denture. Most cases a temporary denture is worn until the implants heal.
