One of the many safe, successful and affordable procedures is dental implants.

The procedure, referred to as osseo or biointegration, provides patients with the comfort and assurance of permanent teeth. 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?
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.

About Dental Implants and El Cerrito, California
After the 1906 earthquake and fire in San Francisco the village of Rust started to grow as refugees from San Francisco moved to this side of the Bay to live.
Wilhelm F. Rust born in Hanover, Germany on November 27, 1857 came to California in 1883. He leased property, built a blacksmith shop and his business grew. He later purchased and erected a hardware store. In one corner of his hardware store the first Post Office was opened in 1909 and Rust was named the first Postmaster on March 1, 1909.
People started to refer to the town as Rust and the name stuck until the town of 1500 people was incorporated as a city on 1917. The people did not care for the name of Rust so they changed it to El Cerrito, which means Little Hill in Spanish. Rust has been called the founder of El Cerrito and was well liked by the people and praised as an honest, trustworthy citizen and businessman.
The first board of trustees (City Council) of El Cerrito included Kirk Gray, John Sandvick, Philip Lee, George Adams and Peter Larsen, with George Scott as treasurer. Mrs. Grace Castner was elected first City Clerk, Henry Wildgrube was City Attorney and George Barber was appointed the first City Marshal. His job also consisted of tax and license collector, street inspector, building, plumbing and electrical inspector for the town of El Cerrito.
The first thing the City Council of El Cerrito do after El Cerrito was incorporated was to levy a large license fee for each of the saloons in town to pay the wages of marshall, clerk and treasurer, and for other needs of El Cerrito. Quite a revenue was collected for El Cerrito as there were almost twenty saloons scattered about the community, but mostly along San Pablo Avenue.
