Dental Implants in San Francisco

Dental Implants in San Francisco, CA 94112

Dental implants have had a considerable impact on modern dentistry – offering a highly viable solution to replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially an artificial tooth that is placed, or implanted, into your jaw where a dental crown is then capped on top for a complete tooth that looks and even feels like a real tooth.

Dental implants can replace:

  • A single tooth
  • Multiple teeth
  • All of your teeth (implant dentures)

Are You a Candidate?

Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, however a large majority of patients are. In order for an implant to be placed into the jawbone, there must be a sufficient amount of room and bone integrity to hold the implant.

Dental implants have very high success rates, up to 98% because of evolving techniques. They offer superior stability over other traditional options.

The Process – What To Expect

Dental implants take time to integrate into your jawbone. Typically, your first step includes implanting a titanium post into the jawbone that will undergo a process known as Osseointegration to fuse with the surrounding bone. This process results in a strong bond that is similar to what a real tooth offers. Several months may be required for this step.

Afterwards, we place an abutment connector onto the titanium implant where a dental crown can be placed. The dental crown will be made specifically to blend in with your teeth for a complete realistic tooth that looks so close to a real tooth that friends, family, and strangers will not even be able to tell the difference.
