Dental implants in Sacramento provide the ultimate in stability for a denture, bridge, or crown. The dental implant is a tiny titanium cylinder that acts like a prosthetic root for the tooth replacement that is connected on top. Modern dental implants are highly effective, with a 95 percent success rate in eligible patients. And with CEREC technology, your replacement teeth can be placed faster than ever.

How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are the only truly comprehensive tooth replacement currently available, giving you back the visible portion of your tooth as well as its root. Each implant is surgically inserted into the space left by the missing tooth’s root, deep within in gum line. After a healing period of about six months, on average, the titanium has fused with your jawbone for unsurpassed stability for the denture, bridge, or crown.
Dental Implant Restoration: Your Options
You don’t have to go without teeth while you wait for your gums to heal following dental implant surgery. During the recovery period after your implant placement, you will wear a temporary replacement device. And once you’re ready for restoration of your dental implants, our CEREC milling machine can complete the task in just one visit to your dentist. Patients who are not in a rush for their permanent device may opt to have their prosthetic device constructed in the separate lab and return to the office once it has been prepared. You and your implant dentist, Dr. Grivas or Dr. Koett, will help you decide which option may be best for you.
