Announcement from Berkeley Prosthodontics (updated April 2, 2020):

Dear Berkeley Prosthodontics Patients,

In light of the evolving pandemic and strong suggestions by public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our practice from March 16, 2020 to May 3, 2020. We do not make this decision lightly, however our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. If you have an appointment scheduled with us during those weeks, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. In the case of emergency situations, we WILL have a dentist on call.

If you need emergency dental care, please call Dr. Au’s emergency dental line at 1-925-529-4704.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.

Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind.
We thank you for your patience during this challenging time and wish all of you continued health.

Dental Implants for a Healthier Smile

If you have missing teeth, it can change the way you speak, dictate the foods you eat, and even lead to further tooth loss. Our Berkeley, CA dentists understand how you feel and want to help you regain your smile with dental implants

At Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry, we offer quality dental implants to patients every day. Whether you have one missing tooth or full tooth loss, dental implants are the best solution for a permanent and natural-looking smile.

How Dental Implants Work

The first step is to meet with one of our dentists to learn whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants in Berkeley, CA. If we determine that they're right for you, the next step is dental implant placement.

Dental implants are small posts implanted in your gums. Because these posts are made from durable titanium, they are sturdy enough to hold a dental crown and to support chewing!

Following implant placement, your posts will bond with your jawbone over a period of 3-6 months. When fusing is complete, you’re ready for your new life-like tooth.

If you have full tooth loss, a few posts can support a complete denture, too.

Dental Implants Mean Better Oral Health

Dental implants not only repair your smile, but they promote better oral health.

When teeth are missing, the remaining teeth shift. This can lead to uneven wear, cavities, and future tooth loss.

Also, when teeth are missing, your jawbone shrinks, and you’re sometimes left with a sunken or aged appearance.

A full smile gives you a stronger and more even bite, which is easier on your teeth.

At Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry, we want you to achieve your dream smile, and our top Berkeley, CA dentists are here to help.
