Discover Petaluma, CA Dental Implants from Hillcrest Dental Group
Hillcrest Dental Group creates beautiful smiles through the latest advances in dental care. We believe our patients deserve only the best in dental health, which is why our Petaluma office offers dental implant restorations and crowns.
Dental Implant Basics
Dental implants consist of small titanium screws that act as fixed posts for new dentures or dental crowns. The titanium screws are surgically implanted into the jaw within the location of the natural tooth root. The titanium screws are then fitted with an abutment, upon which a new tooth, or teeth, is affixed.
If you are a denture wearer, Dr. Leah Berardinis can help get you permanent, implant-supported dentures with mini dental implants. We place mini implants right at our office to help you get a dramatically improved fit and feel for your dentures.
The Advantages of Getting Dental Implants
Dental implants provide patients with a wide range of long-term benefits, which include:
Health – The implant post takes the place of your tooth’s natural root and also mimics its behavior; the implant post integrates with tissue in your jaw and supports healthy bone density there.
Function – A vital outcome in any dental treatment, dental implants are known for providing stability, and returning your full oral function. The titanium fuses with the bone, making your new smile strong. You can speak, eat, and smile naturally.
Comfort – Implants improve the fit of full dentures. Because your dentures are permanently held in place with implant posts, there are no messy denture adhesives or loose fit to deal with. Your dentures look, feel, fit and function like natural teeth.
Appearance – The loss of teeth and bone profoundly impacts appearance; the natural shape of your face is affected and without teeth the face sags, making you look much older. Dental implants provide new dentures with a stable and durable structure, increasing functionality, and maintaining the natural shape of your face. Our patients recover their confidence through a complete smile transformation.
