If you live or work in North Beach and you are considering dental implants, then you are in the right place. San Francisco Dental Implant Center is the leading office for dental implants in North Beach and the whole of the city, and is literally only five minutes away via Sansome Street, at 129 Sacramento Street in the Financial District.
As you might guess from our name, our doctor, Dr. Alex Rabinovich, is a specialist in the fitting of dental implants and can help you too if you have missing teeth or want to replace dentures.
Nothing Is Superior To A Dental Implant
There is nothing in the way of replacement teeth that is anywhere near as good as a dental implant. It literally replaces the missing tooth in as near a perfect way as you can get. The implant itself is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone and replaces the root of the missing tooth. The jawbone then grows tightly around the implant during a process known as ossification and holds the implant tightly in the jaw. On top of the implant is added the crown and you then have a tooth that looks and works exactly as the original one did. In fact, when you talk and smile it is impossible to tell the implant from the surrounding original teeth.
Another big advantage of dental implants in North Beach is that they prevent damage to the jawbone and surrounding teeth. If you lose a tooth and just leave it and do nothing – which is always an option for some people – the jawbone can start to melt away and the teeth on either side can begin to move inwards to fill the gap. So dental implants will prevent this from happening.
Dental implants are also far superior to a bridge. When you have a bridge, the teeth on either side of the tooth to be replaced have to be cut down in order to support the bridge itself. So you are cutting down two perfectly good teeth to replace one tooth.
Furthermore, you are not simply restricted to replacing a single tooth. You can replace several missing teeth with dental implants. In fact, using dental implant technology, Dr. Rabinovich can replace your entire set of teeth and it can all be done in a single day!
So if you are considering dental implants in North Beach, hop in the car and come down to Sacramento Street. Dr. Rabinovich is happy to offer all patients a consult when he can answer all your questions.
