Why should I choose dental implants?
Dental implants are one of the most reliable tooth replacements because they not only fill a gap in your smile, but they can help restore your overall oral health as well! Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can actually stop bone loss and can be used with a variety of restorations to replace one or all of your teeth. If you have suffered from a dental emergency and need to replace a tooth, dental implants are a great option. Plus, they can last for many years with proper care.
Here are some of the biggest advantages of dental implants:
- Can last a lifetime and are extremely reliable
- Durable, strong, and sturdy
- You won't get a cavity or decay
- Prevents bone loss
- Easier to clean around than a bridge
- Easy and virtually pain-free process
- No long appointments or grinding in the mouth

The Benefits of Dental Implants
Because dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth, you can brush and floss normally and still enjoy your favorite foods.
Your implant will be paired with a custom-crafted restoration that naturally blends in with the rest of your smile.
Preserve Your Oral Health
Implants are made from biocompatible materials, which mimic the form and function of your tooth’s natural roots. This prevents bone resorption caused by tooth loss.
The Implant Treatment Process
After the implant has been placed, it needs time to heal and fuse with the jawbone. This typically takes around 10 weeks, although the exact duration can vary depending on the individual case.
Once the implant has fully integrated with the jawbone and is stable, Dr. Wilson will attach a new crown to the implant. This crown is custom-made to match your existing teeth in shape, size, and color, and is securely fastened to the implant to provide a permanent replacement for your missing tooth.
Applying the Restoration
After the implant has fully bonded with your jaw, it’s time to place your restoration. A restoration is the visible part of a dental implant, and most often takes the form of a dental crown when replacing a single tooth. Your restoration will be custom-made to seamlessly match the rest of your smile. Your Santa Rosa dentist will securely attach it to the titanium implant, and your smile will be fully restored!
