If tooth loss is affecting your confidence, we are here to bring your smile back to life. Our team at NB Smile Design understands how stressful it can be to lose a tooth or teeth, but we have a variety of solutions to help remedy this, including dental implants. Dental implants are highly durable and Dr. Barkhodari is able to design them to match your teeth so well that they are virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth. Our Union Street dental team will evaluate your implant needs and create the restoration in the most appropriate way.
What is a Dental Implant Made of?
A dental implant is made of titanium as it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone. It is implanted under the gum to anchor to your jawbone so it acts just like a natural tooth root and is extremely strong. Dr. Barkhodari will then attach a prosthetic tooth to the implant like a screw.
NB Smile Design also offers “All-on-4” restorations. This advanced treatment technique uses four or more implants to replace all of the teeth on either your upper or lower jaw and can support a full bridge of 10-14 teeth. Dr. Barkhodari is able to perform the All-on-4 procedure right here in our dental office on Union Street in San Francisco!
Mini Dental Implants
Dr. Barkhodari also offers mini dental implants. These implants are about half the diameter of traditional implants and are used mainly to stabilize lower dentures. These implants can be placed in one appointment and be immediately used. The cost is 50-70% of standard dental implants.
Dental implant surgery can improve your way of life in more ways than just esthetically, but having a full set of teeth can improve your speech and ability to chew properly, leading to fewer dental issues down the line.
