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.
