  • What Are Dental Implants?

    Dental implants are artificial teeth roots used to provide a foundation for replacement teeth. If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, call Prosthodontics & Implant Dental Center today at (209) 600-7467 or email ranumishra@gmail.com to schedule your appointment or to learn more about dental implants.

    Who Can Have Dental Implants?

    Patients of any age can receive dental implants, although in order for them to work properly we ask that you:

    • Commit to thoughtful oral hygiene
    • Have enough bone to hold the dental implants in place
    • Are healthy enough for oral surgery
    • Have healthy gums
    • Schedule routine dental checkups

    Some patients require a more thorough examination to determine their eligibility for dental implants. This may happen if you:

    • Are a heavy smoker
    • Suffer from uncontrolled chronic disorders such as heart disease or diabetes
    • Have received radiation therapy around the head or neck

    Why Should I Get Dental Implants?

    There are a variety of reasons why dental implants are a good treatment option for you. When you need a missing tooth replaced, consider the following attributes Prosthodontics & Implant Dental Center’s dental implants offer:

    • Comfort: each implant is individually placed, thus more comfortable than dentures or bridges
    • Strength: if taken care of correctly, your dental implants can last your whole life
    • Fit: tends to be better and more comfortable than dentures or bridges
    • Appearance: they look and feel like your natural teeth
    • Speech: since they won’t slip out, they won't make you slur your words or cause you to mumble  
    • Eating: they stay in place, making it easier for you to eat 
    • Oral Health: other teeth do not have to be altered to fit, like with a bridge, allowing your teeth to remain intact
    • Flossing: you can easily floss around your dental implant and other teeth
    • Cleaner: unlike dentures, there is no need to disinfect or use adhesives to keep them in place

    How Do I Get Dental Implant?

    The first step to getting dental implants is scheduling a visit with our friendly and knowledgeable staff at Prosthodontics & Implant Dental Center. We create a customized plan just for you.

    How Do I Take Care of My Dental Implants?

    You should take care of your dental implants like you would your natural teeth. The American Dental Association recommends brushing twice a day with ADA approved toothpaste and flossing at least once. It is important to schedule regular checkups to ensure your dental implants are working properly.
