Benefits of visiting cosmetic dentists in Pleasanton area for dental implants
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Shivani Gupta, and Arpana Gupta of the Center for Implant Dentistry in the Pleasanton area are cosmetic dentists who understand the importance of a beautiful smile. The smile is the first impression given to others and should never be overlooked as a way to achieve a more attractive appearance. Cosmetic dentists are professional who are dedicated to ensuring everything done within the smile is done with aesthetics in mind. This includes directing patients towards beautiful, natural-looking restorations for missing teeth such as dental implants.
Dental implants are metal restorations that are placed into the bone of the jaw and restored in a variety of ways. They may be covered with a dental crown to replace a single tooth, or used to anchor down a dental bridge. Some patients may also utilize dental implants to stabilize full dentures. Whatever the purpose, most patients are appropriate candidates for this treatment.
To start the process of receiving dental implants, patients start with a consultation appointment with Drs. Sambhav Jain, Shivani Gupta, and Arpana Gupta. Our team can determine if patients are able to enjoy the benefits of implants within their smile. We may perform a series of x-rays to check for bone structure. If there is not enough bone structure to hold a dental implant successfully in place, we may suggest the advantages of bone grafting to create a firm foundation for an implant. Bone grafting is affordable and allows patients to rebuild lost bone of the jaw to prepare their smile for dental implants.
Once the area is ready for placement, an appointment is made during which patients will be able to have the implant put in place. This is often done with sedation dentistry, either IV sedation or oral conscious sedation, for patient comfort. The procedure is done in one appointment, during which the implant is embedded into the jaw bone and left to heal, stimulating osseointegration. Once the bone has wrapped around the implant and has allowed for stabilization, the dental implant can be restored. Restoration may include dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures.
