The gold standard for tooth replacement – dental implants in Berkeley, CA

Wouldn’t you love to have your own natural teeth back? Although re-growing real teeth is still beyond the realm of modern medical science, dental implants are the next best thing. They mimic natural teeth in form, appearance, functionality, and comfort. Best of all, when you choose Transcendentist in Berkeley, CA you can feel confident and relaxed throughout the process.

About dental implants

An implant is not actually a replacement tooth, but rather a replacement root. The process involves a minor oral surgery, performed by a highly skilled oral surgeon or periodontist. The procedure is generally trouble free with rapid recovery time.

Do you have missing teeth? Get your Dental Implants at Transcendentist with implant-related solutions for missing teeth. This is a long-term option that does not involve putting crowns for any teeth or removing any other.

What is a Dental Implant?

At Transcendentist, both Dr. Ruhi and Dr. Praj are highly skilled in providing implant-related solutions to replace missing teeth.

An implant is essentially a Titanium or Zirconia surgical component that replaces a missing root.

Why should anyone get a Dental Implant?

One of the issues that most of us will eventually face is losing one or more teeth. The advancements in dental materials are so vast that the standard of care in replacing a missing tooth is an implant.

This is a long-term solution that doesn’t involve putting crowns on any other teeth or a removable option.

How does the dental implant procedure work?

An oral surgeon or a periodontist will place the implant in place of the missing tooth. Once it integrates with the bone, a crown is placed to replace the missing tooth portion for better chewing and function.

At Transcendentist, we work with different implant systems to help restore your smile and function.

The benefits include:

  • Implants can be used with many types of restorations, to replace any number of teeth
  • They can last a lifetime if well cared for
  • Eat anything you please, without worrying about a loose denture
  • With our artisan quality restorations, your smile will look gorgeous and natural
  • Implants stimulate healthy bone regeneration, helping prevent the deterioration that typically follows tooth loss

Dental implant options

We offer several different implant techniques, including:

  • Same day dental implants – Immediately after implant placement a denture or crown is added, so you leave our office with a complete smile
  • All on 4 dental implants – An upper or lower denture can be secured with just four implants
  • Mini dental implants – This versatile implant design is a good option for patients with some bone loss, or those seeking the least invasive implant procedure

Dental Implants - Berkeley, CA
Dental implants are a great way to get the full function, strength, effectiveness and aesthetics of your smile back, if you are the unfortunate victim of broken or missing teeth! Once fused into the jaw bone containing titanium, the implant is mechanically secured well into the jaw and gum for firm retention. Restorations like these are perfect to repair and maintain that natural look.

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.
