Dental Implants are artificial tooth replacements, first developed half a century ago by Swedish scientist Per-Ingvar Branemark.
With decades of engineering enhancements and techniques, dental implants have developed into the groundbreaking technology we have today.
Though the procedure is highly precise, the mechanics are simple to explain. Using a titanium screw-like piece inserted into the root of your missing tooth, your dentist then attaches a realistic, prosthetic tooth in place of your old one. Over time, the titanium fuses with your jawbone, creating a firm, permanent anchor.
Our highly trained dental implants in Livermore specialists will take x-rays and molds of your bite to ensure your implant is exactly as it should be. This is the time to discuss with your dentist exactly what you’re hoping to achieve out of your implant, and to ask any questions you have. We foster an atmosphere of open communication with all our patients.
The next step is to schedule your surgery, where the dental implant is inserted into the jawbone via a small incision. While it may sound scary, you’ll be numbed for the procedure and should experience minimal pain.
After the healing process has completed and your implant has fused with the bone for a strong, secure anchor, your Livermore dentist will give you the all-clear for the next step. Your dentist will then insert your brand-new tooth (crown). This may take a few visits to ensure your complete satisfaction. Once you’re totally happy, your dentist will permanently secure your tooth for a restored smile.
Due to the more invasive nature of this procedure, patients can expect a longer recovery time than for common dental work. Pain can usually be managed by OTC medications. We’ll go over your recovery plan and make sure you know what to expect, what to eat, and answer any questions you have.
While it may seem like a long process, the results are well worth it. With good oral hygiene and regular visits to your dentist (we advise twice a year), your implants can last decades. Contact us today to begin your journey to a brand-new smile with dental implants in Livermore.
Dental implants in Livermore are highly realistic and virtually undetectable from your natural teeth. Our technicians work with you to select the exact tooth you want, from its shade to its shape and fit. We won’t permanently secure your dental implant until you’re totally happy with the results.
