Visiting the dentist when you have missing teeth may feel overwhelming. Changes may be occurring to the smile, but patients might not be sure as to which restoration option they want to choose. Patients near San Bruno, CA who are considering treatment options may want to ask the team at the Peninsula Dental Implant Center about the benefits of dental implants. Our dental implant office can advise patients regarding their options and help them determine if they are a good candidate for dental implants.
What doctor near me offers dental implants?
Dr. Shivani Gupta and her team at Peninsula Dental Implant Center are excited to offer patients dental implants. To determine candidacy, our doctor will first perform a full evaluation of the smile to ensure it is free from problems such as tooth decay and periodontal disease. 3D CT Scan and X-rays are performed, which allow the dentist to decide if the patient has enough jawbone available to place the implants successfully. If not, bone grafting might be recommended, or patients may consult with their dentist about alternatives such as bridges or dentures. However, these are not nearly as long-lasting or durable as dental implants.
Are dental implants affordable?
Dental implants are affordable as a long-term investment, though they cost more than alternative treatments upfront. Fortunately, because dental implants can last a lifetime, they can be the most affordable option over time while patients eliminate the need for replacements throughout the years. Instead, patients can maintain their oral health and wellness, and keep their implant functioning for decades!
Our fee is very affordable because we do complete dental implant treatment, all in one place, with one office, one doctor, one fee, our own in-house lab, so we pass the savings to you!
The pros of cons of teeth in a day dental implants
When you visit Dr. Shivani Gupta at our San Bruno 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.
Teeth in a day are more affordable than you may think!
“Teeth in a day” implants cover the cost of everything: the procedure, the implants, and the costs associated with same-day implant fabrication. Please schedule an appointment at our San Bruno office to discuss price particulars with our team.
