Do you have a missing tooth you need to replace? Now, patients who are missing teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants will improve your smile and your lifestyle. That's because dental implant restorations look, feel, and function like natural teeth. But aside of restoring single teeth, dental implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. In every case, our San Jose implant dentist works closely with reputable, talented oral surgeons and periodontists for a multidisciplinary approach to implant placement.
After a thorough evaluation at our San Jose dental office, Dr. Bittner can tell you whether you're a candidate for dental implants. Good bone density and oral health are prerequisites. The first stage of dental implant restoration involves oral surgery, in which a single implant post is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. After some time has passed, your bone tissue will fuse with the biocompatible post, creating a solid foundation for your new smile.
Once your dental implants are secure, you'll return to Dr. Bittner's office, where Dr. Bittner, your San Jose implant dentist, will complete your dental implant restoration. We will secure the restoration, which our lab will handcraft according to Dr. Bittner's specific design. Your new teeth will exactly match the color and size of your natural teeth, so they'll blend seamlessly with your smile.
What's the secret to a dental implant's success? It comes from the way dental implant restorations interact with your smile. By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Dental implant patients in the San Jose area can enjoy restored function, making it easier to enjoy nutritious yet hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life.
