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.

Important information regarding COVID-19 Safety

Welcome back!  Your health and well-being continue to be our highest priority, and we are ONLY open because we have carefully planned and revised our office procedures to greatly minimize the risk of infection for our patients and our team members.

Our team closely follows guidelines set forth by the CDC, OSHA, ADA, and Berkeley City in regards to existing and new personal protective equipment (PPE), updated engineering, modified administrative protocols, and extra safety practice protocols. You can expect to see some changes for your next appointment, such as pre-appointment respiratory screening, daily temperature-taking, social distanced office area, more air purification and ventilation in each operatory, staggered and lengthened appointments, and more physical barriers installed to keep the office a safe environment for everyone.

We ask that everyone 12 and older must have face cover on when you arrive at our office, and to help social distance, we may ask you and your family, companion, to wait in your car during any wait.

Thank you for your cooperation! We look forward to seeing you soon!
