Holistic Implant Dentistry: The Best Way to Replace Missing or Damaged Teeth

At Green Dentistry, we work with our patients to help them keep their teeth healthy, functional, and beautiful for their entire life. Unfortunately, sometimes this just isn’t possible. Advanced tooth decay, accidents, injuries, and disease can all cause severe damage to a tooth, making it impossible to repair with a filling or other restoration.
In these cases, we recommend high-tech holistic dental implants as the best solution for replacing missing or damaged teeth.

Holistic dental implants are permanent restorations with a natural appearance and function. The titanium implants used at Green Dentistry are 100% biocompatible and actually strengthen your jawbone and promote gum health. Porcelain implants are also available but are more susceptible to fracture. Ask Dr. Patel which is best for you.

Advantages of Teeth Implants

Durable & Permanent

Holistic dental implants are a lifelong solution to lost or missing teeth. Made from biocompatible materials, implants are a great treatment option.

Rock Solid

Dental implants offer a secure foundation for dental crowns, bridges, and dentures. You can speak and chew normally and enjoy the foods you love.

Beautiful

Your implant is completed with a custom-made restoration that matches the color and look of your natural teeth. The result is a natural, beautiful smile!

Simple to Maintain

Caring for your implants is as simple as brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings.

DID YOU KNOW

When a tooth is lost, it can lead to lifelong complications and health issues. The underlying bone will begin to dissolve, a process known as “resorption.” This leads to a sunken appearance in the face and problems biting, chewing, and speaking. Otherwise healthy teeth surrounding the missing tooth may be more susceptible to cavities and may also shift and become misaligned.

Dental implants stop bone loss and protect your teeth, bite, and jaw.

Our Approach to Holistic Dental Implants

Dr. Patel, San Francisco’s leading holistic dentist

Holistic dental implants are a revolutionary way to repair and restore the function and cosmetic appearance of your teeth. However, they are a multi-step procedure that requires 6 weeks or more to complete.

If significant bone loss is found, a bone graft may be needed to provide a solid foundation for the implant. Next, the implant itself will be placed. Made from biocompatible titanium, the implant is set into the jawbone and allowed to heal.

Finally, we’ll craft the final restoration, which may be a crown, bridge, or set of dentures that attach securely to the foundation of the implant. Using high-tech 3D imaging and fabrication processes, we can create restorations that look just like your natural teeth.

The results are amazing and nobody will know you were ever missing a tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Old-fashioned dentures require sticky and messy adhesives to attach to your gums. The results aren’t great. Adhesive dentures often cause difficulty eating and speaking and make many people feel self-conscious. Even worse, they do nothing to stop bone loss in the jaw.

Modern implant-supported dentures are revolutionary! They actually strengthen your jaw bone, look amazing, and make it easy to speak and eat normally.

A single missing tooth can be the first domino in a line of lifelong dental health problems.

  1. Permanent bone loss in the jaw
  2. Problems eating, speaking, and chewing
  3. Increased likelihood of tooth decay and gum disease
  4. Cosmetic problems including misaligned teeth and distortion to facial features

Luckily, modern technology has given us such a great way to replace missing and damaged teeth!

At Green Dentistry, we use advanced 3D X-rays to evaluate damaged teeth. In some cases, a root canal or composite filling can be used to repair the damage. But every case is unique and an implant may be recommended.
