Get Realistic Teeth With Dental Implants in Oakland

When you lose a tooth as an adult, it’s nothing like when you were a child. You won’t get change under your pillow from the tooth fairy, and another tooth won’t grow back in its place. You also lose your tooth roots, which impacts the health of your jaw and reduces your oral function. Our dental implants in Oakland will replace what’s missing from your smile. They can:

  • Allow you to eat the foods you love without limitation
  • Secure your dentures so they don’t slip out of place
  • Strengthen your jawbone health
  • Restore your natural oral function
  • Prevent your teeth from shifting out of place

Find out if you’re a candidate for implants by calling 510-983-7444 for an appointment. You’ll want to join our VIP Membership Club, which has options for patients with implants. For a small monthly fee, you’ll get biannual implant maintenance and a 15 percent discount on other services.

Secure Your Replacement Teeth With Implants

As a patient of Laurel Smile Dentistry, you won’t have to go to another office to have your implants placed. Your dentist can perform the procedure right here. Best of all, you have the benefit of Dr. Sibhatu’s experience as a prosthodontist and his extensive training in implant placements.

Whether you need to replace one tooth or an entire arch of teeth, we offer several types of implants:

  • A Single Crown With an Implant – We’ll secure a dental crown to an implant to replace your missing tooth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridge – If you have several missing teeth in a row, we can anchor your bridge to implants rather than having to affect surrounding healthy teeth.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – You’ll get all the benefits of implants, but your dentures will still be removable. They’ll just snap into place on top of your implants.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Your dentures will be secured by implants and remain in place like natural teeth. You’ll take care of them with a normal oral hygiene routine.
  • All-on-4 ImplantsThese implants will replace an entire arch of teeth with four implants instead of the standard eight. It’s a quicker procedure with a faster healing time, but gives you the same benefits.
  • Mini Dental Implants – If you don’t have the jawbone health for implants, we can place mini implants instead. They’ll improve your bite strength and can secure your dentures without adhesive.

We know it can be nerve-wracking to get procedures done at the dentist. However, we strive to make it as easy as possible. We use modern technology such as digital X-rays, digital impressions, and intraoral cameras for detailed planning and smoother procedures. We also have an on-site lab to create many of your restorations.

Our dental implants in Oakland have been life changing for many of our patients. We’d love to see implants change your life too! Call 510-983-7444 for an appointment, if you’re a new patient. Or call 510-240-7264 if you’re an existing patient. You can also request an appointment online. We’re open Saturdays to fit in with your busy schedule!

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone, like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants also stimulate your jawbone, reducing your risk of bone loss, which is common after someone loses teeth.

Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants could be removed from your jaw, but there is seldom any reason to do so. Once placed, implants fuse with your jawbone and become one with it. They are designed to last for decades, and maybe even the rest of your life, without requiring any special care or maintenance.

How long do dental implants last?

It’s very possible for implants to last your entire life. Most implants are made of medical-grade titanium, a highly biocompatible material used for many medical purposes because of its durability, resistance to corrosion, and ability to fuse to bone. With proper oral hygiene, implants should last for decades. Like any replacement teeth, the restorations attached to implants may need to be replaced at some point.
