Sedation Dentistry of San Jose - Dental Implants
If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be avoiding opportunities due to feeling self-conscious about your smile. Many factors contribute to tooth loss such as accidental trauma, decay, or a necessary extraction. At Sedation Dentistry of San Jose, we offer dental implants as a comprehensive replacement for missing teeth. Implant treatment restores aesthetics and maintains the health of existing teeth and jawbone. Tom H. Clark, DDS, and his dental team deliver comprehensive care while keeping you informed about the procedure you are receiving.
Benefits of Implant-supported Restorations
Dental implant treatment is one of the best tooth replacement methods available. The implants replicate natural tooth structure from root to crown. Implant placement involves surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone so it can create a stable foundation for the restoration. This allows a patient to regain full functionality of their bite and do not experience the uncomfortable slipping associated with traditional, adhesive-based prosthetics.
Since implants integrate directly with jaw tissue, surrounding teeth do not shift into the space left by a lost tooth.
Obtaining Dental Implants in San Jose
Our dental team makes sure every patient is comfortable before continuing with their treatment plan. After performing an initial examination, Dr. Clark determines your candidacy for implant placement and refers you to a local, trusted oral surgeon. He takes an honest approach with his patients when it comes to their eligibility, and tells them if they will need preparatory procedures before proceeding with implant treatment.
Once Dr. Clark determines that you are a viable candidate, our staff walks you through the entire treatment process. After the implant posts have been placed, and the appropriate amount of time has passed for the jaw to heal, the restoration is attached. The final prosthetic is fabricated from ceramic or other premium materials, then adjusted in shape and color to appear uniform with neighboring teeth, providing you with a beautiful and natural-looking smile.
