What does Dr. Shivani Gupta provide for dental implants?
Dental implants continue to be one of the most popular restorations used for patients who have lost one or more teeth. These restorations, made of titanium, are placed during oral surgery into the jawbone of the patient where the missing tooth once was. A process called osseointegration is triggered, during which the bone grows around the implant and improves its stability. In addition to placing dental implants, she also restores them, while some dentists only provide one or the other. Restoring the dental implant can be done with a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a full denture. The restoration chosen depends heavily on the needs of the patient.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
Determining candidacy for dental implants is done easily with the team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center. Patients are evaluated during an initial consultation appointment to ensure their smile is healthy and otherwise free from cavities, periodontal disease, and other infections. X-rays taken assist the dentist in ensuring the patient is a good fit for implants, and to help in planning their placement. If patients do not have enough bone structure to be a good candidate, they can either choose an alternative restoration or consider the benefits of preparing the smile with bone grafting instead. Age is not a factor in getting implants, Dr. Shivani Gupta routinely provides affordable dental implants to patients from the ages 20s to 90s.
The pros of cons of teeth in a day dental implants
When you visit Dr. Shivani Gupta at our Los Altos 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.
