Orinda Dental Care: Your Destination for Exceptional Dental Implants

Are you struggling with the confidence to smile due to missing teeth? Orinda Dental Care is here to offer you a dependable solution.

We proudly provide dental implant services as a permanent, durable, and aesthetically pleasing way to restore your smile.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are the ideal choice for those seeking a lasting solution to replace missing teeth. These implants consist of a Ceramic crown securely attached to a dental implant which is a biocompatible titanium root, meticulously designed to mimic the natural structure of a tooth.

The implant is surgically placed within the jawbone, where it gradually fuses with the bone during the healing process. Once integration is complete, a dental crown is affixed to the implant, completing the restoration.

Dental implants are renowned for their remarkable longevity and durability. They are versatile, effectively replacing single or multiple missing teeth, offering both functional and aesthetically pleasing results.

The Dental Implant Procedure Explained

The journey to dental implants involves a carefully planned process. Here's a step-by-step overview:

  • Planning: During your initial visit to Orinda Dental Care, our dentist assesses your jawbone and conducts 3D x-rays to evaluate its suitability for implant placement. This assessment helps determine the best implant type and placement for your specific needs.
  • Treatment & Surgery: The procedure begins with a minor incision in your gums, providing access to the underlying bone. Then the dentist prepares the bone to accommodate the dental implant, typically made of biocompatible material such as titanium. The implant is then carefully positioned within the prepared bone.
  • Integration: Following implant placement, a crucial healing phase called osseointegration occurs. Over several months, your jawbone naturally bonds with the implant, establishing a secure and permanent foundation. This process ensures the stability and longevity of the implant and can take up to six months.
  • Restoration: Once osseointegration is successful, a customized dental crown is attached to the implant. This crown is designed to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, delivering a seamless and aesthetically pleasing result. With the crown in place, you can enjoy your renewed smile and full functionality.

Caring for Your Dental Implants

To maintain the longevity and optimal condition of your dental implants, follow these essential care guidelines:

  • Brush Twice Daily: Thoroughly brush your dental implants at least twice a day with a soft-bristle toothbrush. Pay close attention to the implant and gumline areas to effectively remove plaque and bacteria.
  • Floss Once a Day: Incorporate daily flossing into your oral hygiene routine to clean between your dental implants and natural teeth, preventing plaque buildup and maintaining healthy gums.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drinking plenty of water promotes overall oral health by increasing saliva production, which naturally cleanses your mouth and protects your dental implants from potential bacterial growth.
  • Regular Cleanings and Checkups: Schedule routine cleanings and checkups at Orinda Dental Care. Professional cleanings remove any plaque or tartar buildup around your dental implants, and thorough evaluations ensure your oral health remains in top condition.
  • Report Damage Promptly: If you experience discomfort, pain, or notice damage to your dental implants, promptly inform your dentist. Early detection and intervention can prevent complications and ensure timely treatment.

By adhering to these guidelines and maintaining good oral hygiene practices, you can preserve the longevity and integrity of your dental implants.
