The Implant Process
When teeth are missing due to severe infection or unforeseen trauma, it can significantly affect dental aesthetics and hinder self-confidence. At Alhambra Dental Plaza, Dr. Han Do and his team of oral health professionals believe this is no way to go through life. His years of experience helps provide complete tooth replacement services for patients looking to restore the beauty and function of their smiles.
Our Sacramento, CA practice handles every aspect of your treatment. By working with our in-house specialists for implant placement and affixing your custom-made restoration, we address your dental aesthetic needs and expectations comprehensively.
To successfully restore your smile, Dr. Do and our team begin care by conducting a thorough examination of your dental state. Our dentist does not shy away from addressing complications such as decay or gum disease to ensure long-lasting dental health. With an open and honest discussion about our findings, we can create a restorative treatment plan that’s personalized to meet your needs.
If it is discovered that you require preliminary treatment, this must first be completed. Problems like gum disease, poor bone density, untreated injuries, or severely decayed teeth are all treatable and this step must be taken to ensure the patient is in the best condition prior to placement surgery.
After determining the mouth is healthy enough, the placement procedure will take place. The doctor first creates a small incision above the implant placement area. Through this opening, a titanium post will be inserted and anchored to the jawbone. The incision site will then be closed and left to heal for between three and six months.
After having enough time to integrate with the supporting bone structure, the implant post should be stable enough to place an abutment. An abutment acts as the connecting piece between the implant post and dental crown, connecting the entire appliance together.
The type of prosthetic required for your dental implant will depend on the number of teeth missing from your smile. For patients with a single tooth missing, we can offer a custom-crafted porcelain crown. When multiple teeth are missing in a row, a dental bridge represents an effective replacement option. For those missing an entire arch, implant-supported dentures will not shift or become dislodged, preserving your natural aesthetic. Once the restoration is cemented or screwed into place, the patient will enjoy a strong, healthy, and appealing smile for a lifetime.
