A dental implant is a small ceramic or titanium screw secured into the jawbone which serves as the anchor or tooth root of the replacement tooth. Both the Ceramic Metal-Free and Titanium implants are a biocompatible material that fuses with the jaw bone which helps to stabilize the implant and prevent facial changes that can occur with bone loss.
Teeth that have been replaced with dental implants will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth and in most cases, with proper maintenance and care, could last a lifetime.
You would care for them just as you would for your natural teeth. Daily brushing and flossing as well as regular visits to our office for a cleaning and exam can help ensure that your implant will last for many years to come.
More Natural Looking – Dentures that are placed over dental implants look, feel, and function more like your natural teeth. The denture is securely anchored to the implant which allows you to smile and chew just as you would with your natural teeth.
No Movement – When dentures are anchored to dental implants, they will not move, which is not the case with removable dentures. Removable dentures are fixed to the gums with adhesives that are not effective and will allow the dentures to slip which will affect your smile and ability to chew.
Improved Chewing Ability – With dental implant retained dentures, you’ll chew just like you would with natural teeth.
We use the One-Visit Dental implant treatment specifically to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth by using 4 dental implants which serve as an anchor for a bridge or overdenture. This dental implant procedure is an alternative to dentures and can replace all of your damaged and missing teeth in just one visit to our dental office here in San Jose.
