Dental Implants – San Ramon, CA
Restore Function and Aesthetics to Your Smile
If you are living with a failing or missing tooth, you understand the toll it takes on your confidence and your daily life. Eating and chewing properly becomes a challenge and might even be painful. Smiling or talking with other people may feel embarrassing because of how your teeth look, which can diminish your confidence and self-esteem.
The good news is that dental implants in San Ramon offer a solution that restores your smile, while also protecting your oral health.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide a number of benefits that not only restore the function you lost, but also the aesthetics you want. This is because implants replace both your tooth and your root, which keeps your bone healthy and your neighboring teeth from shifting.
Other benefits that dental implants provide are:
- They are highly successful and boast a 95% success rate.
- Implants provide the look, function, and feel of a natural tooth.
- Since they are made of customized ceramic porcelain, dental implants seamlessly blend with your smile.
- Implants offer excellent longevity as they can potentially last for a lifetime with regular checkups with Dr. Deol and an excellent home care routine.
- Because of their high success rate and exceptional longevity, implants are a wise investment for your oral health.
Indications for Dental Implants
Dental implants are capable of restoring a single missing tooth or multiple teeth that have been lost. Here are the different types of dental implants:
Single Tooth Replacement
For single tooth replacement, your restoration is a customized porcelain crown. Dr. Deol will create your crown so it blends flawlessly with your surrounding teeth.
Missing Multiple Teeth
For patients missing multiple teeth, dental implants can anchor a bridge, or support a partial denture. Bridges are ideal for replacing multiple adjacent teeth, while a partial can fill in spaces with prosthetic teeth attached to a custom appliance.
Missing All Teeth
An implant-supported denture is ideal for restoring an entire arch of failing or missing teeth, while providing a more secure fit than traditional removable dentures. A denture is an acrylic appliance created to replace all of your teeth with a natural looking prosthetic. 4 dental implants strategically placed can support a denture designed to “snap” into them.
Implant-supported dentures provide better longevity for denture wearers since they help preserve the integrity of the jawbone.
Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
Because each patient’s needs are unique, the price for dental implants varies greatly. Cost is determined based on the complexity of your case and what type of restoration you require. The best way to determine what the exact cost your implants will be is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Deol so he can evaluate your specific needs.
