Implant dentistry in our Fremont practice designed to restore natural form and function
Dr. Sam at the Center for Implant Dentistry was very knowledgeable and took his time to explain the procedure. His staff was very courteous and caring. After going through the several month of process I finally got the implant.
It's been 3 months since I had the procedure done and I have to say that it was one of the best decisions I made. Not only all my pain is gone but my bite problem is no longer there. I like that the fact that once the implant put in it's a there for lifetime. I do hope I don't have to go through the pain again for another tooth. But if I do, I would most certainly get an implant put in by Dr. Sam.

Discovering that tooth extraction is a necessary procedure for restoration of oral health is, for the most part, unwelcome news. Two very common reasons individuals find themselves in this situation are untreated cavities and accidental injury. Tooth loss or extraction is a problem that requires prompt consideration of replacement. Today, your dentist has the materials, techniques, and experience in implant dentistry to restore your smile to its most natural state. The practitioners at our Fremont implant center are all members of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, which gives our patients additional confidence in their outstanding abilities.
Due to the fact that dental implants are designed to replace the roots of missing teeth, rather than only the part of the tooth that can be seen, this form of treatment leads to the most natural function and aesthetic. Implants are inserted into healthy jawbone in a simple procedure. In many cases, the insertion of a dental implant can take place right after tooth extraction.
What is special about dental implants is the natural process that occurs in the months following placement. Over time, bone tissue naturally fuses around the implant posts, leading to a solid foundation for functional, comfortable chewing. Once the implant has become situated within the jawbone, the overall restoration looks and feels so natural that sometimes patients forget they have implants.
Implant dentistry can successfully replace a single tooth, using an implant and a dental crown. Multiple teeth may be replaced with individual implants and crowns, if necessary, or with an implant supported bridge. Even those who are facing total tooth replacement with dentures can find a great deal of comfort and stability with the support of several implants.
In addition to stability, dental implants lead to a beautifully natural smile aesthetics. The crowns, bridges, or dentures created by today’s dentists are designed so that size, proportion, color, and shape maintain facial harmony.
Another of the many benefits of dental implant treatment is preservation of bone within the jaw. Many people who have either not replaced missing teeth or have replaced them with a bridge or dentures, discover that, over time, bone structure underneath decreases. This is especially noticeable in those who wear dentures. The reason for this deterioration is the absence of stimulation, which is lost along with the tooth root. Implants, like roots, transfer the force of chewing to bone tissue, aiding in lifelong retention.
