Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace your missing teeth. This treatment is unlike dentures, which need to be removed periodically, or bridges, which require tooth grinding and the preparation of abutment teeth.

When you choose a dental implant, your Los Gatos Dental Care specialist starts the process by implanting a titanium post in your jawbone. That post serves as a root for your replacement tooth. This way, you can enjoy the same sturdiness and durability you get with your natural teeth.

What is the process of getting a dental implant?

Los Gatos Dental Care uses the latest dental technology to streamline this process. They start by taking a 3D X-ray scan of your jaw. This way, your Los Gatos Dental Care practitioner can pinpoint the best location within your jawbone for your implant, giving you precise and predictable results. 

Once your titanium fixture is placed, you wait for your jawbone to heal. This integrates the implant into your jaw, giving your replacement tooth a stable, long-lasting foundation. Los Gatos Dental Care then scans your implant and surrounding teeth with a 3D scanner, instead of taking impressions, for more precise results.

Can dental implants help if I’m missing more than one tooth?

Yes, in many cases, a dental implant can help you replace multiple teeth or all your teeth. And you may not need a post for each individual tooth, either. Los Gatos Dental Care can create a full set of teeth, then mount them using just as few as 4 implants in your jaw.

To learn more about how a series of dental implants can restore your smile if you’re missing multiple teeth, don’t hesitate to talk to one of the implant experts at Los Gatos Dental Care.
