Dental Implants: Your Best Option For Replacing Missing Teeth

What are dental implants? The name sounds like something out of science fiction, but this procedure has become a staple of modern dentistry due to the reliability, durability, and naturalistic feel and function of dental implants. If you have one or more lost or missing teeth, dental implants may be the best way for you to restore your bite and smile.

Dr. Antoine Varani and the team at VaraniSmile of Turlock, California, can tell you more about whether dental implants could be right for you. You should know more about the unique benefits of dental implants with our practice! 

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are screw-like posts that act similar to the roots of natural teeth, covered with an attached prosthetic. Being anchored in your jaw, your dental implants feel and behave just like your real teeth.

Dental implants can be used to replace one or many missing teeth, maintaining your oral function and restoring your smile. The VaraniSmile team makes sure your dental implants look just like the rest of your natural teeth, so your implants are basically invisible.

Dental implants may be your best reconstructive dentistry option if you have lost or missing teeth. Lost teeth should be addressed with reconstructive dentistry to prevent negative oral health impacts.

You benefit in multiple ways from dental implants. This reconstructive option offers better chewing and speaking function than dentures, and lasts longer than bridges. With good care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Your provider at VaraniSmile can let you know, based on an exam and oral X-rays, if your gums and jaw bone can effectively support dental implants. A preliminary bone graft may be helpful for some people who are interested in dental implants but currently show poor bone health.

How long do dental implants take?

At VaraniSmile, we offer UltraTooth® “immediate load” dental implants, the only practice in California’s Central Valley to do so. With UltraTooth implants, you can cut the time needed to complete the dental implant process significantly.

Instead of juggling a minimum of three appointments across a span of several months, you can enjoy one-day results using UltraTooth dental implants. Here’s how UltraTooth saves you time.

When you come in for your single, convenient dental implant procedure, your provider starts by administering a local anesthetic to keep you from feeling discomfort. Then, the VaraniSmile team inserts the dental implant posts into your jaw bone.

The unique UltraTooth implant system rapidly integrates with your natural bone. You only need one appointment, and you’ll be able to fully use your new dental implant right away – no extended recovery time on a soft-food diet needed!
