When you are missing teeth or have failing teeth, your oral and overall health becomes compromised. Even just one missing tooth will cause you to have to change your diet or the way you eat foods, affect your self confidence and appearance, and put you at risk of bone resorption, which leads to a changing bite. At Green Dentistry in San Francisco, CA, Dr. Nammy Patel offers our patients a holistic solution for missing teeth with modern dental implants that are 100 percent biocompatible. Considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, dental implants restore natural appearance and function to your mouth. And with proper oral care, you can expect to keep your implants for the rest of your life.
Our dental implant service follows the core values our practice is based on: your smile will look natural, function properly, be without pain and last you for years to come.
Our holistic, biocompatible dental implants restore full function and aesthetic appearance to your smile. The process to receive dental implants is a multi-step one that can take up to six weeks or more to complete depending on your specific needs. To place a dental implant, you must first have adequate jaw bone support, so if bone loss has occurred due to resorption, then a bone graft may be necessary. Once your jaw has adequate bone, the biocompatible titanium implant post is inserted into your jaw and allowed to heal. During the final stage of your dental implant procedure, Dr. Patel will use our state-of-the-art CEREC technology to create a dental crown that matches your smile and bite perfectly. Once the dental crown is placed on your implant, your smile will look natural and you will be able to eat and speak comfortably.
Dr. Patel has years of experience in helping patients restore their mouth with holistic and long-term dental implants in San Francisco, CA.
