Dental implants are becoming one of the most popular dental treatments over traditional dentures and bridges. It replaces the entire tooth from root to crown with a permanent restoration that looks and feels natural. So if you decide to undergo this method, what can you expect? First, you’ll need an evaluation followed by any pre-implant treatments you may need. This usually entitles removing the damaged/compromised tooth. After that, you’ll need a bone graft and then need to wait 3 to 9 months for it to heal. Following this will then be able to get your implant placed. The process may be lengthy, but it will be worth it in the end! If you want to set up a dental appointment with California Dental Care, give us a call at (707) 741-6090 or click here.
