What Is a Tooth Implant?
Implant dentistry consists of a small, screw-shaped, titanium post that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It is covered by a porcelain crown that looks and feels just like your old tooth. It requires a minor surgical procedure in which the post is inserted into the jawbone where the missing tooth once was and is left to heal for a set period of time. While it heals, the bone fuses to the metal implant, and then the tooth-like crown is attached.
The Benefits of Implant Dentistry
Treatments with our dental implant specialists are quickly gaining popularity. They have up to a 98% tooth-replacement success rate and correct even the most severe problems associated with missing teeth. They are a safe and effective method for replacing missing teeth with new, natural-looking, permanent teeth, and they help preserve the tooth-supporting bone that naturally deteriorates when a tooth is lost, thereby sustaining the integrity of your facial structure.

For many, tooth implants offer a much-needed reprieve from ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures or retainers with false teeth. We have yet to have a patient regret having an implant placed. Every one of our patients have been extremely pleased with the decision to get an implant with our highly-skilled team.
Our dental implant surgeons, Dr. Oh and Dr. Sastiel are extensively trained and together have placed thousands of implants. Dr. Sastiel handles the majority of our surgeries, including cases with additional complexities, while Dr. Oh manages all of our restorations. As a team, they have the ability to tackle almost any implant case.
Our dental implants procedures usually involve very minor surgery to place the implants. Our standard tooth implant surgery will take around 30 minutes or less, while more complex cases may take longer. Our implant treatment plans can take anywhere from 3-6 months to complete. This allows for your jaw and gums to properly heal before we place the abutment and crown. Just like your natural teeth, with proper maintenance and cleaning, teeth implants can last many years. As part of their job as your dental implant specialists, Dr. Oh and Dr. Sastiel will work with you to ensure the longevity of your dental work. They will guide you through the maintenance and care of your implants at each stage, both immediately after and long after the procedure.
At AV Sierra Dental Center, we offer three primary tooth-replacement options. Depending on the number of missing teeth, certain implant options work better than others:
This option has the highest success rate, and because they will never decay or need root canal treatments, they are the best long-term investment for replacing a single tooth.
These are similar to bridges and are commonly used when three or more teeth in a row are missing. A bridge must connect to a natural tooth, which often becomes weak and starts to decay. With tooth implants, the surrounding teeth are not affected.
This option allows our dental implant surgeons to replace entire jawlines along the top or bottom (or both) rows. These dentures lock into place so they will not shift around in the mouth or fall out during jaw movement.
