What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an increasingly popular tooth replacement method thanks to their reliability and natural appearance. Thanks to a fusion known as osseointegration, dental implants are permanently bonded to the jawbone, to look and feel as natural as a real tooth. Discover more about dental implants today!
Why Dental Implants?
When it comes to finding the best tooth replacement option for yourself, it can be intimidating to research through all the options available. When it comes to dental implants let us show you why dental implants may be a perfect fit for you and your smile.
Dental Implant Process
The entire dental implant process from beginning to end can take anywhere between three to six months, but three to four months is usually the norm. While this may be arduous for some, consider that dental implants are permanent fixtures. This process can be a one-time investment for a lifetime of oral health benefits. The process can also include any supplemental procedures that may be needed to prepare you for the dental implants.
Dental Implant Benefits
The advantages of dental implants can range from improving your oral health to providing a realistic artificial tooth that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Our patients have noticed a change in their confidence and well-being through tooth replacement treatments, and dental implants can be one of the best for you.
Dental Implants vs. Dentures
It’s quite common for us to see patients with dentures feeling uncomfortable or unhappy with the performance of their dentures. When this occurs, we often recommend dental implants for those who are seeking a better alternative. Dental implants hold many benefits over dentures that are appealing to most denture-wearing patients. Imagine not having to wear dentures ever again and being able to eat anything you want!

Are You a Candidate?
Are you missing one or more teeth in Berkeley, CA and are seeking a tooth replacement treatment? The best candidates for dental implants are those who are missing teeth, but also who have enough jawbone or gum tissue support. Candidates are also recommended to be in generally good health as well.
For those candidates who may have insufficient bone support for a dental implant, we have a procedure that can help you out. A bone graft promotes the depleted jawbone by regenerating new bone tissue. This results in a stronger foundation for the dental implant. Usually the source of bone for bone grafting is freeze-dried bone that is readily available. This usually eliminates the need for obtaining the bone from the patient.
Tooth Decay and Dental Implants
If you have lost a tooth recently to tooth decay, also known as cavities, dental implants can not only fill the gap in your smile, but can also promote healing in the affected area. The long-term effects of tooth decay can spread, so it’s important to find a solution for your missing tooth as soon as possible.
