What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth surgically inserted into the jawbone designed to mimic the function and appearance of your original tooth. A dental implant is made of three parts: the post, abutment, and restoration.

The post is implanted into the jawbone to offer a sturdy base for your implant. Over time, it will fuse with the jawbone and become a permanent part of your jaw. Connecting the post to the restoration, the abutment helps transfer chewing forces to the implant. Lastly, the restoration, whether a crown, bridge, or denture, serves as the visible part of the implant, resembling natural teeth and reinstating both function and aesthetics to your smile.

Our Dental Implant Options

Our team is skilled in offering a variety of tooth implant options. We prioritize providing quality care that meets your individual needs and goals, taking the time to understand them before starting treatment. Our dental implant treatments include:

  • Single Implant Crowns: Our team replaces a missing tooth with a single tooth implant. This involves inserting a post into your jaw and attaching a crown as your new tooth.
  • Bridges: We use bridges to replace rows of two or more teeth. Dental implants on the outsides of the gap of your teeth support the bridge.
  • Dentures: We offer denture solutions for patients with full or partial arches of missing teeth. These dentures are securely supported by implants placed in your jaw.

All-On-4 Implants

All-on-4 implants represent a cutting-edge dental implant solution, replacing an entire arch of teeth with only four strategically positioned implants. This streamlined approach provides a faster healing process and means you'll be back to smiling sooner, thanks to the reduced number of implants supporting the full arch restoration. Our dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your oral structures to determine if you qualify for this procedure.

Our Orangevale Dental Implant Process

Our dentist will begin your implant treatment with a consultation. During this time, we will discuss your smile goals and assess your overall and oral health. If you are deemed a candidate for dental implants, we will then surgically insert the post into your jawbone.

Following the placement of your implant, it's essential to allow sufficient time for proper healing before proceeding with your restoration. Typically, this healing process takes eight to twelve weeks for your implant site to recover fully. Throughout this period, you'll have routine check-ups with our team to monitor your healing progress. Once your mouth has healed properly, you'll return to our office to have your new crown, bridge, or denture restoration placed, completing the final step in restoring your smile.

Dental Implant FAQs

Our team acknowledges that dental implant treatment can be intimidating, and you may have questions. We have the expertise to address your concerns and assist you every step of the way. Some common dental implant questions include:

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implant posts can last a lifetime, while the restoration can last for over a decade of continual use. They are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth replacement.

Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth, including daily brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups with our dentist.

Dental implants are designed to be a versatile solution for most individuals with tooth loss. Our dentist will perform a consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you.

Yes! Your tooth implant is designed to act as a natural tooth. You can enjoy eating on your new implant just as you would with a normal tooth.
