Why Dental Implants?
When both the root and the tooth are damaged the best permanent replacement option is a dental implant. Depending on the application and the need of a patient, dental implants can be used to support a single crown, a bridge, or even a full-arch denture.
At Redwood Dental, the complete procedure typically takes 3-6 months. The dentist will place the implant (a titanium post that acts as the root of the tooth) in the jaw bone. After placement, there is a 3-4 month waiting period while the implant integrates with the bone. We then proceed to the final step of putting a ceramic crown, bridge, or denture on the implant. You should expect this new tooth to function, feel, and look just like a real tooth.
Restore your smile
Implants or artificial roots can be used to replace the natural roots of missing or failing teeth in a way that is permanent and easy to maintain. A well-designed implant can be cleaned and cared for easily.
Strengthen your jawbone
Implants work like natural teeth and stimulate the jawbone to stabilize and maintain bone volume and density. This can prevent some facial changes that can make a person look prematurely old.
Minimal invasive technique
Implants can be quickly and efficiently placed using advanced minimally invasive techniques. Most people can have implants inserted in a day and experience minimal pain, bleeding and discomfort. Redwood Dental is here to guide you every step of the way while ensuring your comfort.
