Our dental implant center offers patients who are looking for a professional “near me” to place and restore implants in the Palo Alto, CA area.
How are dental implants used?
Dental implants are the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. These restorations are made of titanium and maintain the bone structure of the jaw. They are held in place by the jawbone, ensuring they are strong, durable, and fully functional as natural teeth once were. These implants can be restored in various ways. The abutment of the dental implant can hold a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a denture, depending on the patient’s unique situation.
What type and brands of implants are used?
Depending on the condition of your jaw bone, we provide bone level or tissue level dental implants. Dental implants are made of Titanium alloys that allow the bone growth and integration. We use made in the USA high quality implants. Upon request, Noble Biocare or Straumann implants can be placed as well. While the type or brand of implants is important, the success and failure of implants depends mostly on the surgical skills of the dentist who places the implants and provides the right type of crowns and bridge.
Who is a candidate for dental implant services?
Patients need to undergo an evaluation to make sure they are a good candidate for dental implants. This is determined by an examination to ensure the smile is healthy and free from decay and disease. We use our in-office, 3D CT Scan to view the bone structure of the jaw and check if there is enough bone available to successfully place the dental implant into the jawbone. Patients who are not good candidates for a dental implant may consider other services such as zygomatic implants, dental bridges or partial dentures to restore the function and appearance of their smile. Our team can assist in choosing the most appropriate option for you!
The pros of cons of teeth in a day dental implants
When you visit Dr. Shivani Gupta at our Palo Alto 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 about 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.
