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.
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.
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:
We offer several different implant techniques, including:
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.
