Start smiling again with implants for teeth in Redwood City
Naturally, you want to have a beautiful smile, however, missing teeth can make that hard. But the truth is, missing teeth impact more than the aesthetics of a smile. Large gaps in the smile can lead to the gum tissue and bone degeneration and increase the risk of decay and disease.
At Peninsula Dental Implant Center in San Carlos, CA, our mission is to restore beautiful, healthy smiles for patients. We do this by providing dental implants for missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a replacement tooth root. It looks like a small screw and is placed into the jawbone. Dental implants can be attached to a single crown, bridgework, or dentures depending on how many teeth are missing.
What to expect
On the day of the surgery, Dr. Gupta will use a local anesthetic to numb the area before placing the implant or implants. Once in place, the area is left alone to allow the bone to fuse around the implant and stabilize it within the jaw like a natural tooth root. During this time, temporary restorations can be worn to allow patients to eat and speak normally.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental bridges and conventional dentures can restore appearance and functionality, but they rest on top of the gum, which means they do not prevent bone degeneration. A dental implant provides stability and creates the foundation to restore full functionality to the teeth and maintain oral health.
How long do implants last?
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. We provide a five-year warranty on dental implants. Patients are encouraged to maintain good oral hygiene at home and regular dental visits.
How much does an Implant Cost?
Depending on whether you are missing a tooth or need to get a bad tooth extracted or if a bone graft is needed, the full dental implant cost can range from $2500 to $4000.
