If you are considering having dental implants in San Francisco, it is no good going to a general dentist. Certainly, some general dentists will carry out dental implant work, but most of them will refer you to a specialist, for the simple reason that providing dental implants IS a job for a specialist.
A good comparison would be having your house rewired. You wouldn’t ask a general builder to do it. Certainly, he may be able to fix a three-pin plug on a kettle, but when it comes to rewiring your home you would call for an electrician because he is a specialist: it is what he does.
So it is with dental implant specialists. These are highly trained and qualified surgeons with many years of experience behind them. And this is what we do at San Francisco Dental Implant Center. Our dental implant specialist, Dr. Alex Rabinovich, has carried out so many dental implants that he can’t remember how many he has done in total. Suffice to say, it’s a lot!
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function in exactly the same way that the original tooth did. The implants are titanium posts which are placed into the jawbone, which will then bond with the post or the bio-ceramic surface coating of the titanium alloy, which provides the perfect base upon which to mount an artificial tooth that has been crafted to match the surrounding teeth so that everything looks natural. You will then be able to laugh out loud with total confidence, knowing there are no gaps, and eat whatever foods you wish to eat, and which you may not have been able to do for years.
If You Have Dentures, You Won’t Believe The Difference!
If you presently have dentures, you won’t believe the difference that dental implants can make. You can forget dentures that slide about, taking them out at night, and using glues to fix them. A dental implant that has been installed by one of our dental implant specialists performs in exactly the same way that the original tooth did.
Another great advantage of dental implants is that they help to maintain the structure of your face. When you lose a tooth, the bone in which it was fixed can start to deteriorate, which in turn can alter your appearance – and not for the better. Dental implants will help to prevent this from happening.
