All About Dental Implants

San Ramon Cosmetic Dentist Helps Fight Bad Breath

Dr. Kachalia knows that there are many cosmetic dentistry procedures that can meet patients' needs. Dental implants in San Ramon, however, are one more commonly used procedure of which Dr. Kachalia wants to ensure that all of his patients are familiar with.


It is commonly thought that dental implants are made with a durable acrylic material, however, this is false. Dental implants are made using titanium screws and usually with either porcelain and/or ceramic. They are typically used when there is a missing tooth, a cracked tooth (or teeth), and sometimes for other purposes.


Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Unfortunately not everyone is a suitable candidate for dental implants. Individuals with gum disease are typically not recommended for this procedure, unless a periodontist gives them permission. Usually they need to have gum treatment and/or repair before they can receive dental implants. Dental implants require strong in healthy gums to be able to support the newly implanted tooth.


Are partial dentures recommended as opposed to dental implants?

Dr. Kachalia recommends patients receive dental implants as opposed to partial dentures. Partial dentures require that some of the surrounding teeth be filed. Partial dentures are more prone to bacteria and can potentially irritate the gums.


If you are considering dental implants in San Ramon, or any other type of oral procedure, be sure to contact your dentist for the best advice. Dr. Kachalia cares deeply about patients and their well-being. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Kachalia today and give yourself a reason to smile! Call (925) 804-6440 to schedule your appointment!
