What Are Dental Implants?

Replacing lost teeth is critical to the overall condition and look of your smile. A safe and effective way for Walnut Creek, CA individuals to address extracted or lost teeth, we are extremely excited to partner with local oral surgeons in providing high-quality dental implants for tooth replacement. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post that acts as a substitute tooth root, and a personalized dental crown, bridge, or denture is used as the visible part of the lost tooth (or numerous teeth). If you are dealing with missing teeth or need a tooth extraction, schedule an appointment at Life Dental & Orthodontics and learn about your dental implant alternatives.

What Is the Dental Implant Treatment Process?

The process for oral implants includes the careful positioning of the implant and the securing of a realistic, customized replacement by your oral surgeon, including full-arch dentures, crowns, or bridges. When your mouth is prepared for surgery, an oral anesthetic will be used to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible. Sedation dentistry can also be used to help you feel more at ease throughout your appointment. We work closely with numerous oral surgeons in the area in ensuring your metal implants are strategically placed within your jawbone at a particular location. Time will be allotted so that the post can integrate with the jaw through a phenomenon called osseointegration. Once the surgical site has completely healed, typically several months afterward, we will position a specially made crown, denture, or full-arch restoration and assess the alignment of the jaw.

Dr. Hockel is simply fantastic. He is a perfectionist who takes a holistic approach, checking to see how his work will affect airflow (particularly if you have sleep apnea, which I do, so quite a plus for me to find a dentist/orthodontist who knows how to handle it), bite, and facial proportionality. I've been going to see Dr. Hockel and his team to address an underbite, 5(!) missing adult teeth, and overall crooked teeth. Collectively, they have straightened out my teeth, added temporary ones (still need dental implants), and have done excellent work. Would highly recommend.
