Pinole Dental Implants

A part of cosmetic and esthetic dentistry, dental implants are a great option for people who don’t want a bridge or a partial, which is a removable appliance to replace gaps where missing teeth are. Dental implants can also be used to keep your dentures in place.

All services involved with dental implants can be taken care of by Dr. Oliver, and will look and function exactly the same as your regular teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are made up of a titanium screw and a post that is covered with a crown, bridge or denture. We place the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the tooth root. After several months, the implant attaches to the bone, so it now looks and “acts” just like a natural tooth.

A patient needs to be evaluated to ensure there is enough bone available to secure the implant. Impressions are taken to provide the necessary mold for a customized implant.

When the implant is ready for insertion, the doctor cuts the gum at the insertion site to expose the bone. The implant is inserted and the gums around the implant are stitched to close up the incision. Once the implant is firmly imbedded into the bone, a post is attached to it and then the doctor creates a permanent tooth replacement.
