Dental Implants

Dental implants have dramatically changed the way dentists are able to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are the closest thing we have in dentistry to actually re-growing the natural tooth. Implants are strong, stable, durable and virtually undetectable.

what are dental implantsTypically we work in a team fashion with surgical implant specialists, either a periodontist or an oral surgeon. They begin the process of tooth replacement via implants by diagnoses and consultation with you, preliminary jaw bone preparation and then implant placement and follow-up. Once the specialist has determined that your implant and tissues are ready for crown(s) then Dr Clusserath and staff work with you.   At that point, our office will complete the process by attaching an implant crown to the fixture.

For those individuals who use a denture, multiple fixtures can be placed in the jaw allowing an entire denture to be attached. Gone are the days of lose, floating lower dentures!

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant and crown. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implant crowns are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth

The staff at Summerhills Dental Care in the Sacramento, California area have years of experience placing implant crowns. We utilize our surgical specialists in a team approach to deliver quality dental implants to you.  Implants are an exciting part of our practice.  If you’d like more information on dental implants, please give us a call at 916-723-3368.
