Choosing a dental implant to replace a missing tooth is a big step.  But you feel confident because your Berkeley dental implants dentist explained the process in detail, and now you're excited to see your new replacement tooth. 

You have all the information you need, but what happens after your dental implant is in place? Your replacement tooth will look great and function well, but what are some of the other benefits? 

  • Improved appearance – One or more missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious and cause others to make unfair judgments about you. With a dental implant, you’ll have a functional tooth that also looks natural and complements your smile. 
  • Increased confidence – It can be embarrassing to smile when you have missing teeth, which takes a toll on your self-esteem. With dental implants, smile proudly knowing you have a whole and healthy smile. 
  • Improved fit for dentures – Dentures that are held in place with dental implants feel comfortable and secure in your mouth. If you have older dentures that shift and move, you will be amazed at the difference that holding them in place with dental implants can make! Your dentures are stable and secure, and you don’t have to worry that they will slip or move when you’re with others.

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!
