IMPLANTS IN PLEASANTON

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

At Pleasanton Star Dental, located at 2324 Santa Rita Rd., Suite 3, Pleasanton, CA 94566, we understand the complexities that come with a missing tooth. Led by Dr. Vundavalli, our team is well-aware that the loss of a tooth goes beyond aesthetic concerns; it can have significant functional repercussions. When a tooth is missing, neighboring teeth may shift into the vacant space, altering your bite and smile, which can lead to further dental issues. Furthermore, tooth loss can lead to the deterioration of the jawbone. This shrinking of the jawbone affects your facial structure, altering your appearance even when not smiling, and can impede daily activities like speaking and chewing.

While dental bridges and dentures are traditional solutions, they do not offer the same level of stability or long-term benefits as a dental implant. At Pleasanton Star Dental, we specialize in dental implants, a robust and permanent replacement for missing teeth. Implants integrate with your jawbone, preserving its structure and preventing shrinkage. This is essential for maintaining not only the aesthetics of your facial structure but also the health and alignment of your remaining teeth. Opting for a dental implant can significantly impact the functionality and appearance of your oral health. For consultations and implant procedures, contact us at (925) 462-4045. Our expert team is committed to providing solutions tailored to your individual needs and lifestyle.

HOW DO DENTAL IMPLANTS WORK?

Dental implants are the best option when it comes to restoring missing teeth. Patients with one or more missing teeth can choose this method of restoration. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone for the most secure and realistic anchor. The cap also called the crown is then attached to this structure to imitate the appearance of a tooth.
Implants come with a number of benefits over other methods.

  • Comfortable
  • Decreased sensitivity
  • Higher success rate
  • Improve chewing
  • Lower risk of cavities
  • Maintains and encourages the growth of the bone
  • Natural
  • Permanent

MAINTENANCE

After your procedure is complete, it is important to care for the implants as you would your natural teeth, including daily brushing and dental cleanings at least every 6 months. A follow up appointment will be necessary to make sure the gums are healthy and that the implant is healing well.
