The procedure, referred to as osseo or biointegration, provides patients with the comfort and assurance of permanent teeth. Many patients find that dental implants restore their self-confidence and self-esteem and improve their quality of life.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. After the procedure the patient regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium or bioceramic surface coating on top of the titanium alloy, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. Implants also provide excellent support and stability for removable partial or complete dentures when dental appliances are required.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
What does getting dental implants involve?
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.
X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.
After several weeks of healing, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.
You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment at our San Francisco Dental Implant Center, please contact us today. We look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve. Our office staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and here to help you with a smile.

About Dental Implants and Alameda, California
Alameda deeded the U.S. Government land in the west end for an elaborate 100 acre Army Base known as Benton Field, and another deed of 929 acres of tideland and submerged land in 1935, for $1, marked the beginning of Alameda as a Navy town. Official opening of Alameda Naval Air Station was November 1, 1940, where the airfield operated for 56 years of continuous fleet support. Today, Alamedans face the challenges of rebuilding almost 1/3 of the city in the wake of base closure in August 1996.
In 1955, Alameda undertook its most controversial fill operation, a three year project creating South Shore. Few realize that this idea was considered for decades, as evidenced by a 1920s artistic rendering of what the area would look like found in the collection of the Alameda Museum.
With a population of 80,000 in 1998, Alameda still retains the feel of a small Midwestern town. That Alameda has more Victorian style homes per capita that any other place in the United States is a tribute due largely to the establishment of the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society in the early 1970s and the Alameda Historical Society and Museum founded in 1948. New groups, like the USS Hornet Foundation museum, aboard the restored ship, opened in 1998 plus the Alameda Naval Air Museum and Western Aerospace Museum plan to establish educational and recreational exhibits which will continue the legacy of preserving Alameda’s past for the benefit of future generations.
