There are a lot of dental surgeons or dentists in the Bay Area who “dabble” in dental implants. This is in the sense that they carry out general dentistry such as fillings, dental hygiene, teeth whitening, dentures, crowns, braces, and so on, but only undertake the occasional dental implant procedures.
An average general dentist might do one or two a month, if that.
The fact is that there are very few specialist Bay Area dental implant centers whose doctors carry out dental implants every working day, and therefore have far more experience than a general dentist does. San Francisco Dental Implant Center is one such specialist, because our doctor, Dr Alex Rabinovich, simply does dental implants every day of the week. He has amassed a huge amount of experience, and knows that in order to produce the finest results you have to use specialist equipment.
So, for example, Dr Rabinovich doesn’t use X-rays. He uses a CT scanner which gives a much-improved picture of your jawbone and shows the best position to insert the dental implant and equally importantly how to avoid damaging any nerves. Then again, he absolutely will not use imported, cheap, dental implants. Certainly, these are available, and a lot of general dentists may use them. But do you really want them in your mouth? When you want dental implants you want nothing short of the best, so that is what Dr Rabinovich uses. After all, the procedure for dental implants is not cheap, so you want your dental implants to last. This is another reason that we are one of the best Bay Area dental implant centers.
A Decided Improvement On A Bridge Or Dentures
Dental implants are also a decided improvement on something such as a bridge. That requires the teeth on each side of the replacement tooth to be cut down in order to support the bridge. So you are actually damaging two teeth to replace one tooth. Dental implants are also far superior to dentures which can slip and slide about, may not let you eat certain foods, and can cause severe embarrassment: it has not been unknown for people with dentures to throw their head back and laugh at a hilarious joke only to find their dentures fall out of their mouth. Seriously!
Dental implants work in exactly the same way that your original teeth or tooth worked, so they are the obvious choice. Here at San Francisco Dental Implant Center, our doctor also offers all patients an initial consult which you can get by clicking on the Contact Us link at the top of the page. So if you are looking for one of the best Bay Area dental implant centers, you have just found us!
