Implant Dentistry and the Benefits

Sure there are a number of options you can choose to replace missing teeth. Patients can choose bridges, partial dentures, or dentures as a solution. But dental implants are unmatched regarding appearance, feel, and long-lasting results. We offer a variety of options including single implants, All-On-Four, and All-On-Six to meet our patient’s individualized needs. All-On-Four implants work great for individuals who desire a more permanent way to affix bridgework or dentures. With All-On-Four, patients no longer have to worry about their dental fixtures falling out because they are secured to the titanium post. A single implant is perfect for those that are missing a single tooth.

We are pleased to offer all the options to complete your smile. Implants are surgically placed under the gumline, and for most patients directly into the jawbone. Endosteal implants are the most common. There are options for individuals that don’t have enough bone matter to support the implant, called subperiosteal which are placed just under the gum on top of the bone.  There are a number of benefits patients can expect when they choose dental implants as their solution to missing teeth.

  • Long-Lasting Results
  • Natural Appearance
  • Easier To Maintain
  • Feels Like Your Own Teeth
  • Improved Speech
  • Eating Becomes Easier
  • Increases Confidence
  • More Comfortable

Patients report excellent results from dental implants. Implants are easier to care for, than other alternatives. Because they are permanent, they function just like your natural teeth wood. You can eat whatever you would like, and maintaining good oral cleaning habits is a breeze.

What Causes Tooth Loss?

Lossing a tooth can be devastating to anyone’s confidence, making you feel insecure and not smile as carefree as you might like to. It can also affect other aspects including speech and the way you eat. Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum disease
  • Trauma/Accident
  • Root canal failure

  • Excessive wear
No matter what the reason for a lost tooth, Image Dental has the solution. We understand it can be difficult to talk about a situation like missing a tooth. You may feel embarrassed. We aren’t here to judge; we are here to help solve the problem. With some implants, patients can walk in and have an implant with a crown placed all in the same appointment. The first step is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stephen Nozaki, at (209) 955-1500, to find out which dental implant option is right for you.

Have Questions About Dental Implants?

Before undergoing any treatment, procedure or service, we understand our patients may have a few questions. We are here to answer them, and help you feel more comfortable about the service. Here you will find the most often asked questions about implant procedures in our office.

How much do implants cost?

The cost of implants varies based on a few factors. The type and number of implants used will play a role, as well as what your dental insurance will cover. Typically – a single implant crown will cost $1,000-$3,000.

How long do implants last?

Dental implants are considered a permanent solution to missing teeth. While they may not last forever, most patients can expect a trouble-free experience for up to 25 years sometimes longer. Compared to other alternatives to missing teeth, like bridges, that only last 5-15 years, implants are an excellent option for long-term results.

Are implants painful?

No. Having implants are not painful. The healing process can make your gum feel tender, but no other pain is involved. Once they are installed, they will feel natural, and not noticeable.

What is the risk of implants?

With any surgery, there are always associated risk. The most common is an infection. In rare cases, an implant will fail to place correctly. Having a skilled oral surgeon place your implants will significantly reduce the risks.

What is the alternative to implants?

Dental implants are the most natural looking way to complete a smile that is missing a tooth or teeth. However, there are other options available including dentures, and bridges. For those that are nervous about surgery, or looking for a more affordable solution bridges and dentures are also great options.

How long is the healing process for implants?

The healing process is different for everyone. Once an implant is inserted, it will need time to fuse with the jawbone.  Patients can expect about 4-6 months to heal completely.
