Dental Implants Sacramento
Restorative dentistry has come a long way and now offers you dental implants. Dental implants are an alternative to dentures and dental bridges that allow patients to replace missing teeth with ones that look, feel, and perform like their own.
A dental implant is a small, sturdy, titanium post that acts as the root structure would for a natural tooth. They are easy to maintain requiring the same preventative care as natural teeth: brushing, flossing and regular dental check‑ups.
Dental implants are available to Sacramento patients at Soft Touch Family Dentistry where you will find a warm, welcoming dentistry ready to transform your smile and restore oral health. As a family dentist and cosmetic dentist for over twenty years, Dr. Owyoung can provide you with dental implants that will keep you smiling for years to come.
When Dental Implants are Needed:
- Replace Missing Teeth
- Support Dentures, Crowns or Dental Bridges
- Fill Unsightly Spaces Between Teeth
- Anchor Loose Teeth
If you believe you need dental implants, we recommend you schedule a dental examination and health history review. During these processes, your specific dental conditions will be evaluated by Dr. Owyoung. Most patients need two procedures to have dental implants successfully placed. Dental implants are first placed in the jaw bone. Within the first 3-6 months after insertion, the implants will be found under the gums, infusing itself with the jawbone. During this time, it is recommended that you wear temporary dentures or limit your diet to soft foods. The final cosmetic crowns or dentures will then be created and applied, improving function and appearance.
