Platinum Dental of Mountain View
Making smiles permanent
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are different from dental bridges because they do not require modification to the surrounding teeth.
Platinum Dental of Mountain View is committed to helping you maintain a smile that you feel proud of. Dental implants look natural, and allow you to eat normal foods because they function like a normal tooth. Call us to set up an appointment today and see if dental implants are right for you.
The Dental Implant Process
Platinum Dental of Mountain View offers dental implants to help protect you from further bone loss and damage. We start by placing the implant directly into the bone which replaces the root of a tooth. In order for a dental implant to be effective it must fuse with the bone which means you have to take some time to heal.
After the healing time an appliance is attached to the implant. This could be a crown, denture, or other appliance and our dental team can help determine which appliance is best for you. Implants help slow or stop bone loss that would otherwise happen with a missing tooth.
