People who have lost natural teeth want to regain the natural look and feel they once enjoyed. The faster we can achieve this goal, the better. With bridgework and dentures, we can replace missing teeth, but we are limited in the degree of comfort and functionality we can reach. In order to maximize the potential of tooth replacement treatment, we may recommend adding dental implants. With as few as four implants, a full denture can be beautifully stabilized.

Patients of Dr. Shivani Gupta and Peninsula Dental Implant Center receive care that is tailored to their specific situation. Throughout the consultation, examination, and planning process, we keep your wellbeing as our central focus. Whether we stabilize dentures with four implants or need to perform a bit more work to build up a healthy bone structure, you can feel confident that you are in very competent hands.

Because bone loss is a natural result of tooth loss, finding the right form of replacement is important. Dental implants stimulate the bone in the jaw just like natural roots. Though it is not typically necessary or financially feasible for most people to replace each individual tooth and root with an implant and crown, it is possible to complete the tooth replacement process with a few implants and a natural looking denture. More than just creating a stable, beautiful smile, Dr. Gupta and her team can do this in one day.

With teeth in a day, you can leave our office with your smile fully restored. You can smile and speak with confidence and you can feel comfortable enough to go out for a nice meal with friends or family. The process includes the placement of four or more implants in each arch or in only the upper or lower, based on need. At the outer edges of the arch, implants are situated at a slight angle so they do not hit the sinus cavity or nerve endings. Once we have placed implants, Dr. Gupta fits your custom-made denture prosthetic to abutments. Through the teeth in a day process, you can achieve a number of benefits, such as:

  • Minimal recovery time
  • Treatment is minimally invasive and made comfortable with anesthetic and sedatives, if needed
  • Dental implants have an excellent record of success
  • With continued stimulation from implants, the jawbone does not break down as it would otherwise
  • You do not have to be without teeth for any length of time
  • As implants fuse in the bone, the denture gains full stabilization

Dr. Gupta has the education and focused training that leads to outstanding results. Combining implants with a well-made denture or bridge saves your smile and your wallet.

Immediate Implants With Temporary Tooth

At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, your concerns are treated with the most conservative methods available. When replacing missing or failing teeth, we remain committed to this goal of conservative care. With advanced technology and a streamlined process, we maximize your benefit and minimize the time you spend rebuilding your smile.

In some instances, we may be able to replace a falling tooth immediately. The immediate placement of an implant or implants after tooth removal is actually quite significant because this process can expedite healing. When we look at the anatomy of the mouth, we can quickly identify the reasons for immediate insertion of implants after extraction.

Each tooth is situated in a socket. When a tooth is removed, the socket is empty. Over time, this area becomes filled with bone tissue. If this occurs, a new socket must then be created in order to insert a dental implant.

The standard two-step process

In cases when bone tissue has grown into an empty socket, preparation must take place before we can insert an implant. Creating a new socket causes no pain to you and it is as successful as immediate implant treatment. The extra step simply means that we drill a small opening into which we can place the implant. After insertion, we cover the implant with gum tissue and leave it to heal for several months. During this time, bone fuses around the implant. This step leads to the outstanding stability implants are known for.

Step two in this approach involves uncovering the implant, again without pain, and placing an abutment, (connective piece) to the post. After this step, a few more weeks of recovery are needed. During this time, gum tissue is settling around the visible portion of the implant. In the final step, your beautiful new restoration can be attached to the implant abutment.

Streamlining with immediate implant placement

The ideal time for implant placement is after tooth extraction before bone has grown into the socket. Not only does this eliminate the need to create an opening to place the implant, but it also seems to speed up the growth of bone around the implant.

Dr. Gupta has extensive training in planning, placement, and follow-up of dental implant treatment. At Peninsula Dental Implant Center, we can help you get your smile back on track quickly.
