Why Choose Us

Whether you have just lost your teeth or have been battling with slipping dentures for years, dental implants offer many benefits to our patients. At New Leaf Rohnert Park, our team of caring professionals understands how intimidating the idea of implants and oral surgery may seem, but Dr. Eddie Kuo is here to walk you through every step of the process, ensuring you are comfortable every step of the way.

With the use of advanced technology and our CBCT x-ray machine, we are able to get a clearer picture of everything from your natural teeth and gums to your jawbone and the nerves and glands that sit beneath the surface. This allows for more precise measurements when creating your implants, as well as more precision implant placement, including the ability to place implants without the need to cut large flaps in the gums. This reduces healing time, allowing you to quickly get back to your normal routine and be proud to show off your beautiful new smile.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants fill in gaps in your mouth from missing teeth. Dental implants typically feature a few main components. The implant and abutment are similar to a screw and connect to your jawbone. The implant bonds with your bones there, creating a sturdy base. An artificial tooth in the form of a crown fits on top.

Compared to other dental restoration options, dental implants are one of the few that preserve your jawbone. Not only do they preserve it, but they also can stimulate bone growth.

It is common for dental implant surgery to require more than one procedure. Typically, you will have the implant itself installed into your jawbone. Then, after healing for a few short months, you will have the crown or artificial tooth installed.

There are several types of implants that you should be aware of. We can discuss any of them with you in more detail, but these are the basics:

Single Tooth Dental Implant

Single Tooth

If you are just missing a single tooth, we typically just place the dental implant in the space where the tooth was. This fills in the gap and gives you a natural smile.
Implants With Bridge On Lower Arch

Multiple Teeth

In the case of multiple missing teeth that are next to each other, we usually suggest bridges or dentures with implants. Bridges rely on implants on either side to support them and fill in larger gaps in your mouth with ease. Partial dentures could fit over the implant, or you could get implant-supported dentures, depending on how many teeth are missing.
Implant Supported Denture

Implant-Supported Dentures

If your jawbone is healthy, this is an alternative to traditional dentures that provides more support and stability. We install (at least) one dental implant in your mouth. We then fit you for dentures that fit over this implant. Compared to traditional dentures, the implant improves support and keeps your jawbone strong.
All-On-4 Implant Parts

All-on-4

All-on-4 implants are a variation of the implants used for multiple teeth. They are an alternative to dentures for those missing all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw. The procedure involves installing four implants at strategic places, with other artificial teeth between them. These implants provide support, just like with smaller bridges.

Stop Worrying About Missing Teeth

Having missing teeth can lead to all sorts of problems. You may have difficulty eating and be unable to enjoy your favorite foods, especially harder items. Missing teeth can also make pronunciation difficult, depending on which teeth are not there.

If you don’t fix the gap from a missing tooth, your adjoining teeth can start to shift to fill in the gap. The jawbone by the missing tooth may also weaken. These issues can worsen your oral health or ability to eat what you want.

Enjoy a Natural-Looking Full Smile

Dental implants are the perfect solution for many patients with missing teeth. They are shaped to fit perfectly. Between their shape and the ability to color match adjoining teeth, they look very natural. You will not have to be self-conscious about your smile anymore.

More importantly, once your mouth heals, you can eat nearly anything you want without worries. Speaking clearly will also become easier. As a bonus, getting dental implants prevents your other teeth from shifting into the gap.
