Modern advances in dental science now allow us to offer patients multiple options to help you enjoy a functional, secure, confident and beautiful smile — all in our office. One of the many safe, successful and affordable procedures is dental implants. It involves the installation of permanent replacement teeth supported by artificial dental root forms called dental implants. These tooth replacements look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants have solved many problems associated with tooth loss that previously required replacement by removable full or partial dentures. With today’s technology the cost of dental implants can make them very affordable!

The Bay Area, with some six million people, sprawls from Marin County in the North to San Jose in the South. That said, our office is located conveniently to many Bay Area cities, and with a superb surgeon (Dr. Alex Rabinovich) at the helm, many patients find it more than worth the drive up (or down, or across) to San Francisco. After all, your teeth and smile are worth the drive!

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?

Bay Area Dental Implants

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 the SF Bay Area

With San Francisco as the dominant city, yet San Jose as the most populous, and Oakland as perhaps the most “hipster,” the Bay Area offers incredible choices in diversity. Here are some facts. First, for instance, San Francisco flushes its toilets with Sierra Nevada water. This is true, in the sense that the City by the Bay gets its water from the Sierra Nevada. It has some of the best water in the world (whereas, unfortunately, San Jose does not). Second, the Golden Gate Bridge and Bay Bridge both rise, and fall, with the temperature. Who knew? Third, dogs outnumber people in San Francisco (sadly, or perhaps happily). As for Oakland or San Jose, we can’t find any statistics on those cities, but it is said that the coffer is by far the best in Oakland, as is the blues and hipster scene. Fourth, Gertrude Stein once famously quipped that there is ‘no there there’ about her city, Oakland. (No one is quite sure that that meant, but Oakland actually has a park with a big sign that says, THERE). Fifth, there are more than 600 hundred churches and other places of worship in Oakland. Finally, as for San Jose, it is not only the largest city in the Bay Area but also the oldest settlement in California, founded in 1777!
