Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a Dental Implant?
A: A dental implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. The implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw. It will bond with the bone over time and thus serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
Q: Are Dental Implants Successful?
A: With more than three decades of clinical experience and over a million patients treated, statistics confirm a success rate of nearly 95 percent for individual implants, even higher for the bridges they support.?
Q: How Much do Dental Implants Cost?
A: The Fee for tooth replacement with dental implants depend on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced and the number of implants required to support your replacement teeth. Some additional procedures may be required prior to place of your dental implants (bone grafting, sinus augmentation, etc).
The Implant Center at California Smile is now offering simple dental implants and crowns for only $2395 (package deal). A single implant is only $1195 for a limited time.

Q: Will Dental Implants work for me?
A: Anyone who is missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants. The main limitation is the volume of bone available for placement of the implant. We can provide you with a complimentary consultation for dental implants, please call us at             925-689-2748       to schedule the consultation.
Q: Is old age a problem?
A: Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from enjoying the benefits of dental implants. However, health is more of a determining factor than age. If you're healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, you're probably healthy enough to receive dental implants. Certain chronic diseases may contraindicate implant treatment. Your dentist will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and health history.
Q: What are the advantages of Dental Implants over dentures or bridges?

· Improved appearance: When you lose entire tooth - crown and root - shrinkage of the jawbone may cause your face to look older. Dental implants can stop this process. A traditional denture or bridge doesn't. 

· Maintained natural teeth: With traditional practices, two teeth adjacent to a missing tooth must be ground down to anchor a bridge. Dental implants often eliminate the need to modify healthy teeth.

· Permanent solution: There are no loose parts to worry about. The implant is stable and comfortable. No adjustment is need after installation. Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
Q: How much time is required for an implant placement?
A: Traditionally, the procedure has been performed in two steps. The dentist began by installing the implant, which was left for from three to six months to heal and integrate with the jawbone. During the healing period, the patient was given a temporary prosthesis until the permanent crown could be put in place. 

Today, there is an alternative to the two-step method that allows you to have the implant installed in one whole piece in one single session. This new method has simplified the procedure a lot. 

The procedure is chosen depends on several factors, such as the patient's dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits to the dentist throughout the treatment period.
Q: Is the treatment painful?
A: Just as with any surgery, there can be some discomfort. Anesthesia is used to eliminate any discomfort at the time of the procedure. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. We will prescribe medications to ease any discomfort that may occur.
Q: How will I feel after the treatment?
A: It is normal to have some small bruises and swelling in the gum and soft tissues. But usually the discomfort, if any, is treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.
Q: How will I care for my implant?
A: Your new teeth must be cared for and checked regularly, just like your natural teeth. Brush and floss as recommended and come in for a checkup every six months, or more frequently if so advised.
We truly believe that dental implants are the best treatment option for most patients missing teeth. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please don't hesistate to call our office at             925-689-2748      .
