At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, patients in the Atherton, CA area who are searching for a dental implant dentist “near me” can seek the assistance of Dr. Shivani Gupta. Her practice offers tooth replacement options for individuals who want a more permanent option when compared to partial dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants are a highly desirable and long-lasting alternative for patients ready to make a long-term change in the function, health, and appearance of the smile.
Who is a candidate for a dental implant?
As with most dental restorations, is it important that patients book a consultation appointment and initial evaluation with their dentist to determine if they are a good candidate. The initial consultation or a second opinion visits are at no charge and include 3D CT Scan for evaluation of the jaw bones. Adult men and women with sufficient bone may benefit from placing these implants and restoring them however they desire. The entire process can be done right in the practice with Dr. Shivani Gupta under appropriate anesthetics and sedation.
What if I am not a good candidate?
Dr. Shivani Gupta thoroughly evaluates patients for candidacy and makes necessary alternative recommendations if patients truly are not a good fit for dental implants. However, some patients, even those without enough bone structure to have the procedure, may want to consider bone grafting to prepare the area accordingly. This can allow some individuals who might not have been a good candidate for dental implants to achieve the same results in the future.

The pros of cons of teeth in a day dental implants
When you visit Dr. Shivani Gupta at our Atherton location for “Teeth in a day” same-day dental implants, you will immediately reap the many benefits this groundbreaking treatment offers. Our patients report high satisfaction levels due to the convenience of same-day dental implants. No uncomfortable partial or complete dentures are required during the healing time associated with traditional dental implants. This is great news for those patients who are highly anxious when considering living without their teeth for any set amount of time.
However, as with any dental or medical treatment, there are some drawbacks you may want to know about. There is no shortcut when it comes to the process of osseointegration. The bone-to-implant integration process must still take place, meaning there are some restrictions you will need to follow during the 6-8 weeks following your implant procedure. Patients must stick to a soft diet, avoiding hard or crunchy foods such as nuts or some uncooked fruits and vegetables while integration completes.
