Dental implants provide a fixed solution as opposed to removable, uncomfortable dentures. A comprehensive approach to tooth replacement, dental implants provide unsurpassed support and stability for prosthetic teeth.
Dental implants provide an artificial root and tooth to fill gaps in the smile. Each dental implant is surgically placed into the jaw bone. Dr. Michael Piccione will partner with a local specialist to ensure you receive the very best surgical care. Once the procedure is complete, you will begin a recovery period that lasts several months. During this time, the jaw bone will gradually grow together with the titanium dental implants to provide unsurpassed stability. The end result is a strong, durable, and long-lasting tooth replacement.
Some of the most significant benefits of dental implants include…
The treatment for dental implants requires several visits to the dentist’s office and may last up to a year depending on the health of the jawbone and the location of the missing teeth.
First, your oral surgeon will take x-rays and molds of the jaw and teeth to create a personalized treatment plan. Then, each implant will be surgically placed into the numbed jaw. The implants and bone are then allowed to heal and join together over a period of three to six months. After healing is complete, a follow-up surgery may be necessary to apply a connector between the tooth and the dental implant.
When the dental implant is healed and ready, you’ll return to our Sunnyvale, CA office for the final restoration. Dr. Piccione will apply the artificial teeth to the top of each implant. If you’re ready to permanently replace your missing teeth, be sure to contact our office today.
