Dental Implants Oakland

 

What Are Dental Implants?

When patients think of dental implants, they often picture the crown and the post – but dental implants are just the titanium tooth roots that are embedded into your jaw bone. The crown, bridge or denture is then placed atop this post.

 

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

During your initial consultation, our office will work with you to identify your candidacy. The good news is that most patients with healthy gums and jawbones are candidates. If you are not a candidate for dental implants, there are several alternative options and ways that we can help you to become a candidate.

 

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process is composed of 4 steps: consultation, placement, osseointegration and application.

 

The initial consultation is where we decide if you are a candidate for dental implants. We assess the overall health of your gums and jawbone during this time.

 

Once approved for dental implants, we schedule the dental implant surgery.

 

During the surgery, we create space in your dental bone and place the titanium roots.

 

The next ‘step’ takes place at home! Over the course of a few weeks, the titanium posts will begin to become a part of your jawbone. As the titanium posts fuse to the jawbone, a strong foundation for your replacement teeth is formed.

 

Once the roots have fused fully, we then will secure your replacement teeth onto the roots. The replacement teeth come in many forms including removable options.
