What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a highly successful tooth replacement option that has revolutionized reconstructive treatment in modern dentistry. Lifelike and long-lasting, dental implants are designed to improve all aspects of your smile.
Here at West Oakland Advanced Dental Artistry, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions for each patient who requires their specific needs. Whether you are missing one tooth, a full arch, or all your teeth, we have a restoration solution best for you. See how Dr. Allain will rejuvenate your impaired smile with his dental implants.
Single-tooth dental implants may be used to replace one or several missing teeth. Opting for a single dental implant instead of a traditional dental bridge to restore a gap in your smile will help preserve its neighboring teeth.
Dental implants are a prosthetic tooth root that is surgically secured in the jaw, creating maximum stability. The implant is made of a titanium alloy, allowing it to fuse with the jaw just as your natural tooth root would. Additionally, dental implants are not susceptible to decay and they help prevent bacteria from growing.
Extracted Dental Implant Placement
For patients with failing teeth or chronic dental problems, tooth extraction may be necessary in order to maintain your oral health. At West Oakland Advanced Dental Artistry, we’re able to extract damaged teeth to help restore your empty gaps with dental implants.
With over 25 years of dental experience, Dr. Allain is exceptionally trained to perform the entire procedure, saving you time and money. They will provide you with a shorter recovery time and long-lasting results.
For patients who have lost most or all of their teeth, investing in hybrid dentures can help restore dental function, stability, and security. Hybrid dentures are permanently attached to the gums and secured with just four dental implants.
Similar to single dental implants, Dr. Allain will evaluate the state of your mouth and determine if you have enough jawbone density to support dental implants. If he determines that you qualify, he’ll surgically insert the dental implants and place temporary prosthetics while the surgical site heals.
Hybrid dentures are a permanent solution that never needs to be removed. They provide the necessary stability that allows you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably, just like natural teeth.
