Dental Implant Services Available at Peninsula Dental Implant Center
Dental implants are a reliable and effective way of replacing one or more teeth. Dr. Shivani Gupta and her team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center in Redwood City, California, utilize them for many patients who arrive at her office looking to restore their smiles. She is here to help educate patients about what dental implants are, how they are used, and their benefits.
What is a Dental Implant?
Dr. Shivani Gupta describes the dental implant as a titanium post inserted in the patient’s jawbone to act as a tooth root replacement. The implant rests above the gum line after placement, and the abutment can be used to hold a crown, bridge, or denture in the smile.
How are Dental Implants Used?
Dental implants are used to hold a restoration (new teeth) in place with the strength and foundation of the jawbone. The jawbone solidifies the implant in place for optimum function. A single crown can be used over a dental implant to replace a single tooth, or several implants might be used in holding a full denture to replace all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw. During a consultation visit, that includes a 3D CT Scan, patients can find out which restoration method is appropriate for their needs.
