Best San Francisco area dentist offers dental implants
Dental implants are titanium fixtures that act as a natural tooth root. When placed into the jawbone, they can stimulate osseointegration, which holds the implant firmly in the mouth. This results in a fixed restoration unlike dentures, which need to be removed and cleaned. Dental bridges are another fixed option but do require specific care and attention to keep them clean. They also do not last as long as dental implants, which is why many patients are interested in investing in dental implants.
At the time of dental implant placement, patients can also have other treatments done. For example, patients may need to have bone grafting procedures completed at the same time as their dental implant placement, or may be interested in having soft tissue grafting done. This may be done for patients who want to address areas where there is not enough gum tissue covering the roots of the teeth. Our team may also perform a sinus lift before the placement of a dental implant to ensure that they are not affected by these fixtures when placed in the upper dental arch.
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta of the Center for Implant Dentistry are excited to offer not only dental implants but restorations including dentures and bridges. We encourage patients who are interested in finding out about repairing the smile to book a consultation appointment with us and find out what is the most appropriate way to address their dental concerns. We have many years of combined experience and want our patients to feel at ease with our training and expertise, as well as our modern technology to ensure precision and success.
