Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants consist of a metal post surgically inserted into your jawbone to replicate a missing tooth root. Attached to this post is a dental crown that looks just like your natural teeth. 

Dr. Wehle offers implants to replace a single missing tooth but also provides:

All-on-4®

All-on-4 or “teeth in a day” allows you to receive replacement teeth in just one day. With these treatments, four implants are integrated into your jawbone for a strong, stable foundation to accommodate a full row of replacement teeth.

Implant-supported dentures

With implant-supported dentures, you reduce the slippage and messiness associated with traditional dentures. A highly cosmetic denture appliance is attached to two or more implants that are integrated into your jawbone. You get a natural look, feel, and function with implant-supported dentures.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer a long-lasting solution for missing teeth. They can last 25 years or longer. This makes them superior to bridges and dentures, which can’t match this staying power.

Dental implants are comfortable and don’t require any filing down of your natural teeth. Implants look and feel completely natural. 

Receiving implants requires no downtime, and the procedure is virtually pain-free. Many people compare the experience to getting a filling, and you can control any post-procedure pain with over-the-counter medications. 

The staff at Willow Glen Dental Care also works with you to make the implants affordable. Considering they’ll last a lifetime, implants are a good investment in your long-term oral health. 

What is the process of getting a dental implant?

If you want to learn more about whether a dental implant is right for you, set up a free consultation with Dr. Wehle at Willow Glen Dental Care. 

The doctor evaluates your teeth, gums, and bone to make sure the implant procedure will be successful. Dr. Wehle creates a customized treatment plan for you that includes an estimate of the cost. In some cases, she may recommend bone or gum grafts to provide a stable foundation for your implants.
