Berkeley Prosthodontics and General Dentistry

Are dental implants right for me?

Dental implants are the best tooth replacement solution available today. They replace your tooth and your root and require the same level of care as natural teeth. Additionally, dental implants in Berkeley look, feel, and function just like the teeth you were born with.

If you want to learn whether dental implants are right for you, it is essential to make an appointment with your dentist in Berkeley, CA. A thorough exam, including x-rays and a chat with your dentist, helps us determine whether dental implants are right for you.

A dental implant is a tooth root replacement made of durable titanium. This material bonds easily with bone, which makes it ideal for root replacement. After the bonding is complete, usually a few months, your dentist places your restoration tooth or dental crown.

Proper Care for Dental Implants 

With proper care, your dental implants in Berkeley, CA can last a lifetime.

We recommend:

  • Brushing and flossing twice daily
  • Visiting your dentist regularly for exams and teeth cleanings
  • Checking into a nightguard if you grind and clench your teeth
  • Wearing a mouthguard if you play sports

We make these same recommendations to patients who do not have dental implants!

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.
