Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, would you like a permanent solution for that tooth loss? Our dentists and team can help you through the entire process of getting dental implants in San Ramon, California. Dr. Michel Raad is an experienced prosthodontist and can place your dental implants at Luxor Dental, giving you a flawless restoration.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to be the longest-lasting and most stable of dental restorations. They simulate the structure of natural teeth with two parts: the post and the prosthesis. The post is a small screw, typically made of titanium, that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, just like the roots of natural teeth but even more stable. After this is placed, there is typically a brief healing period that allows the jaw and mouth to heal and accept the post.
When this healing period is over, our team is then able to place the prosthesis, the part of the implant that looks and acts like the natural tooth. These can be crowns for single teeth, bridges for multiple teeth or even full or partial dentures for a large number of teeth being replaced. Regardless of the type, each prosthesis is made to fit your individual smile in size, color and function.
What Are the Benefits of Implants?
Implants are incredibly stable and work to preserve your oral health for years and decades to come. After your treatment, your implant will blend in with your natural smile in both form and function. Taking care of your implant is just as easy as caring for your natural teeth, too! Your implant can last for life, though the prosthesis will need to be replaced a few times over the life of the implant. There is really no restoration option that can match the benefits of implants!
