What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a restoration option for missing teeth. These artificial teeth are increasingly popular because they offer a permanent solution, and they are the only dental restoration that replaces the entire tooth from root to crown.
Implants consist of an implant post made from a body-safe material, such as titanium, and topped with an abutment and a dental crown, bridge, or dentures. The implant post provides a permanent base because it fuses with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. The post also mirrors the essential function of your natural tooth root and continues to stimulate your jaw, which prevents bone loss.
Implant-Supported Crowns: If you are missing a single tooth, then an implant-supported crown may be the answer you're looking for. Our team can craft a crown to replace any tooth, from a molar to an incisor. An implant-supported crown is essential because it keeps your neighboring teeth from shifting into the empty space, which would otherwise disrupt your bite pattern and lead to uneven wear on your natural teeth. We carefully match the size, shape, and color so your restoration blends seamlessly with your smile.
Implant-Supported Bridges: Implant-supported bridges rejuvenate your oral health by replacing several missing teeth in a row. These dental restorations are permanent and consist of an implant-supported crown at the beginning and end of the bridge, with prosthetic teeth called pontics suspended between them.
Implant-Supported Dentures: The loss of most or all of the teeth in your upper, lower, or both jaws leads to severely compromised oral health and overall health. Our implant-supported partial and full dentures can restore the functionality of your bite and boost your oral health. Implant-supported dentures consist of an implant post, an abutment, and artificial teeth set in a body-safe pink acrylic base that mimics the appearance of healthy gums. Our custom dentures are carefully designed to fit you and your unique smile, and we artfully match your restoration to any remaining teeth for a seamless appearance. Our office offers immediate dentures as well as All-on-4® implant-supported dentures for those who qualify.
Why Choose Our Implant Dentist?
Our dentist is passionate about education and using the latest techniques to improve your oral health and recovery time. This is why we are part of the Spears study club for dental implant placement. We combine decades of experience with modern techniques to provide effective and efficient treatment options.
We begin our dental implant process with a gentle and thorough exam of your teeth, jaws, and gums. Our team will use modern technology like our CBCT scanner to gather precise and valuable information about the current condition of your oral health. We will use all of this information to craft a treatment plan that is personalized to you and your specific needs and lifestyle.
During this process, our team will also note any pretreatments you may require to successfully support a dental implant. We perform gentle extractions, bone grafts, and sinus lifts so you can enjoy consistent care in our comfortable dental practice.
Next, we perform the implant post placement procedure, and you will take time to heal and allow the titanium post to fuse with your jaw and create a secure base for your restoration. We'll provide a temporary restoration for you in the same appointment to maintain your smile's appeal during the healing process. Once you're healed, we will place your permanent implant-supported crown, bridge, or dentures.
Dental Implant FAQs
We value education and open dialogue, which is why we encourage you to share your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and information you need to feel confident in your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about dental implants.
How long do dental implants last?
Implant-supported restorations are extremely durable, and the implant post is permanent. If your artificial teeth become damaged or worn over time, they will need to be replaced, but you won't need to go through the implant post placement surgery again.
How do I care for my dental implant?
Dental implants are easy to care for. You will simply brush and floss them twice daily, just like your natural teeth, and attend your biannual dentist appointments.
How much do dental implants cost in Livermore?
The cost of your dental implant is determined by your custom plan and whether you receive an implant-supported crown, bridge, or dentures. Our compassionate team will discuss the cost of your treatment plan with you.
