Dental Implants

Oakland Area Cosmetic Dentists to Restore Your Smile

Dragon Dental’s expert team of dentists use dental implants to fill in the gaps in patients smiles, giving them a new beautiful and natural looking smile. Dental implants are used to ensure that remaining teeth do not move from the proper position, as well as prevent oral health problems from becoming more severe.

What are Dental Implants?

DentalImplantsDental implants are artificial tooth replacements that were developed over half a century ago by Swedish scientist Per-Ingvar Branemark, invented to secure patient’s loose fitting dentures. Since then, engineering and enhancements to the implant have enabled dentists to expand the implant’s usefulness, including total replacement of missing or lost teeth. Implant technology of today provides a wide range of tooth replacement options, including:

  • Single Tooth Replacement
  • Anterior Replacement
  • Posterior Replacement
  • Full Upper Replacement

If the missing tooth space has no surrounding teeth, your dentist may decide that an implant is the most appropriate treatment choice or option.

Integrated Implantology. Safer Implants.

Post-Implant Care

Although proper oral hygiene is always recommended, it is especially important to maintain the health of your mouth after receiving dental implants. Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned, which will cause gums to swell and the jaw bone to gradually recede.

Recession of the jawbone will weaken the implants, and eventually, the implant may need to be removed. We advise all of our dental implant patients to visit our dental office at least twice a year to ensure the health of their teeth and implants.

With proper care, your dental implants can last for decades!
