"I Don’t Trust Dentists…"

Olesya's Story

A New Smile Starts with Dental Implants

Missing one or two teeth is inconvenient and damaging to oral health, but a full arch of missing teeth can be devastating. Difficulty chewing, an altered facial structure and aesthetics, and low self-esteem are just a few of the repercussions of multiple missing teeth. At Clovis Family Dentistry, we love the versatility of dental implants because they can replace a missing or failing tooth or restore an entire smile.

No other tooth replacement option looks and feels as natural or offers the versatility of affordable dental implants in Clovis, CA. Dental implants blend seamlessly with your natural teeth so nobody, including you, can tell the difference! And like so many others who received dental implants from our team, you’ll likely experience a huge boost in your confidence and find yourself smiling more than ever!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial replacements for natural teeth that consist of a titanium implant post, connecting abutment, and restoration fabricated from zirconia or porcelain. The implant post assumes the role of the missing tooth root after it fuses with your underlying bone. With the highest success rate of all tooth replacement options, dental implants in Clovis, CA, can last a lifetime with proper professional dental care and daily brushing and flossing.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Dental Implants Provide Many Options

Single Dental Implants

A single implant is surgically placed in the site of the missing tooth. After healing and osseointegration (fusion with your underlying bone), the post provides a stable foundation for a crown. The beauty of single dental implants at Clovis Family Dentistry is that they only require the same oral hygiene routine and professional dental care as natural teeth.

Dental Bridges

An implant-supported bridge has several advantages. A traditional bridge relies on adjacent healthy teeth that must be reshaped and crowned to support the false tooth in the center. Using implants to secure the bridge eliminates the need to modify healthy teeth while stimulating the underlying bone to keep it healthy.

Implant Supported Dentures

Traditional dentures’ stability, fit, and comfort decrease over time, leading to gum irritation, slippage, and the need for frequent relining. With just a few implants per arch, we can create a removable or fixed denture that provides amazing stability and restored natural function. In addition to being able to eat most of the foods you love and never worrying again about messy denture adhesives, implants prevent ongoing bone loss and associated sagging of your lower face.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

Instead of struggling with the many repercussions of tooth loss, you can restore a picture-perfect smile with full mouth dental implants in Clovis, CA. With just four to six dental implants strategically placed per arch, the All-on-4 to 6 technique makes the most of existing bone. The dental implants provide optimal support for permanent new teeth created from durable, natural-looking zirconia.

The Steps to a New Smile

Our dentist discusses your dental health challenges during your implant consultation and what you hope to achieve with dental implants. Digital X-rays and facial scanning analyze your bone structure, nerve pathways, and sinus cavities and determine if you’re a good candidate for dental implants at Clovis Family Dentistry. The 3D diagnostics are essential if you’re getting full mouth dental implants.

Dental Implant Procedure

Our dentist surgically places the implant posts in predetermined sites in your jawbone during the surgical procedure, using sophisticated digital technology. In addition to a local anesthetic to numb your implant sites, you’ll be resting comfortably under your choice of sedation. While it’s normal to experience some discomfort, including bruising and swelling, following a dental implant procedure, this can usually be managed with over-the-counter medication or a pain medicine prescription.

Healing and Final Restorations

Although the healing process differs from person to person, it typically takes three to six months for gums to heal completely and the titanium posts to fuse with your jaw bone. You’ll wear a temporary prosthesis during the healing phase if you get full mouth dental implants. When you receive your final crown, fixed bridge, or full arch prosthesis, you’ll experience transformative benefits, including a huge boost to your smile confidence!
