Dental implants are one of the most important advances in the history of dentistry: titanium posts that provide such a solid foundation, that the teeth they support look and function like the real thing. Dental implants are available here at Green Dentistry in San Francisco
What makes them possible is the titanium, which is fully compatible with human bone. Once they fuse with the bone they actually become a part of the body.
The implant acts are a substitute for the tooth root that was lost along with the natural tooth. One implant can support one artificial tooth, and several can support a bridge or full dental arch.
Getting one or more dental implants is a multi-step process, which takes about six months to complete. Once it’s fully healed you have full biting and chewing power, and teeth that look as real as they function.
Implants also help to prevent the bone loss that is common with a lost tooth. This promotes healthy bone, and prevents the sagging appearance in the face that is a common consequence of lost teeth.
Dental implants from Green Dentistry in San Francisco can support one or more artificial teeth. Patients come to us from Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and all over the Peninsula come to our practice for holistic dentistry. Please to schedule an appointment today!
