If you have a missing tooth, or even several missing teeth, then perhaps consider dental implants in San Francisco.  There are several ways that you can go about solving the problem. Our office in San Francisco can help with your dental implant needs.

One way is to consider dentures. These are simply false teeth, as everyone knows, on a plate that fits inside your mouth and is held in place with a glue of some description.

Dentures and Tooth Replacement in San Francisco

San Francisco Dentists and Dental Implants / Second OpinionDentures will replace your smile, and make you look as though you still have a full set of teeth, even though you don’t. They are probably also the lowest cost cure for the problem of missing teeth. We have several dental implant solutions for your dental needs.  We have a dental expert in San Francisco that can help with dental needs.

However, they have several disadvantages, the chief of which is that they are notoriously difficult to keep in place when eating certain foods, since they have a tendency to slip and slide about. Indeed, it is probably true that the majority of denture wearers are dissatisfied with one or more aspects of their dentures.

Another choice is to have a bridge. These can work quite well, but the disadvantage is that the tooth on each side of the bridge has to be cut down to accommodate the bridge. In effect, what you are doing is to damage two perfectly good teeth to replace one, which may not be something that most people would want to do.

Dental Implant & Tooth Replacement, Options for San Francisco Residents

What might be described as the Rolls Royce of tooth replacement is a dental implant. Dental implants do not affect the teeth on either side, won’t slip or slide about, and are as near to the original tooth as it is possible to get. They simply perform in exactly the same way.

A titanium screw is inserted into the jawbone (if this sounds painful, don’t worry, it isn’t) and the bone bonds to the screw over a period of a few months. Then a replacement tooth is fitted to the implant. While the bone is bonding to the screw, a temporary replacement tooth is used.

Dental implants are not the cheapest option – simply the best. However, if you want the best, (and you should), San Francisco Dental Implant Center has a selection of affordable repayment and finance programs available, including a 0% interest plan for qualifying patients.

Why should you get a second opinion about dental implants? The answer is that not all patients are suitable for dental implants, although the good news is that most are.

If you discuss dental implants with a general dental practitioner, he will take x-rays to have a look at your particular situation. This is all well and good, but it is not making use of the latest technology.

At San Francisco Dental Implant Center we have a team of specialist technicians led by Dr Alex Rabinovich, who have performed hundreds of dental implants, and are experts in the field. In order to determine if you are suitable for dental implants, we use the latest 3D CAT scanning techniques which give both a 3D picture and a cross-section view of your jawbone, nerves, tissue, and existing teeth.

This enables us to determine whether you are suitable, the precise quality and density of your jawbone, the most suitable place to insert the implants, select the correct size and type of implants, and avoid nerves and sinuses. This new technology goes far above and beyond the use of out-dated x-ray technology.

This is why, when you have had a consultation with your local dentist, it is well worthwhile coming to us for a second opinion.

Let’s be honest: if you needed something like a new roof, a heat pump, or new windows, you wouldn’t just ask one contractor to give you a quote. You would, at the very least, get a second opinion.

With something as important as your dental health, and your ability to smile with confidence, and eat any foods that you want once more, a second opinion is not just an option – it is critical.
