Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you probably understand how difficult it can be to talk or laugh around them. Missing many teeth can even change the shape and appearance of your face, and also cause a decline in your overall health. Dental implants are the “gold standard” solution for tooth loss. These permanent restorations bring back your smile aesthetics, dental function and oral health, and they last for decades! Our team at Dr. Darryl Burke, DDS Oral Aesthetics and Implants is experienced in providing dental implants in Concord, CA. We can help you regain your quality of life with this long-lasting solution.
No matter whether you choose to replace a single tooth or get full mouth dental implants, these restorations are made up of three parts that mimic your natural teeth. The post secures the implant to your jawbone, the restoration is custom-crafted to look and feel like your teeth and the abutment joins these two parts. If you choose this permanent solution, you need the expertise of an implant dentist who uses advanced surgical technology.
Single dental implants can support a crown or bridge, while full mouth dental implants attach to a full, fixed bridge of artificial teeth. We also provide implant supported dentures, which snap securely to implants that Dr. Burke places in your jawbone. In all cases, dental implants enhance your ability to feel confident in your smile, eat a varied diet and improve your quality of life.
At Dr. Darryl Burke, DDS Oral Aesthetics and Implants, our team customizes your implant treatment to your specific needs and goals. You’ll first complete a consultation with Dr. Burke, where you’ll get detailed digital scans taken and discuss your dental and medical history. The next stage is your implant surgery. This is where our implant dentist extracts any remaining teeth and performs bone grafting, as well as inserting the implant posts. Dr. Burke uses fully guided techniques for all dental implant surgery, providing exact and predictable results. Most of the time, he can even provide temporary restorations the same day as your surgery! During your surgery, you’ll be resting comfortably under sedation. As your mouth heals over the next three to six months, you’ll be able to smile with confidence once again.
Unlike bridges and crowns, dental implants don’t need healthy teeth to be present to support the restoration. They only need a dense jawbone to remain secure, and in turn the posts provide stimulation that keeps your jawbone healthy. Unlike dentures, full mouth dental implants are permanently attached to your jawbone, with the posts acting as artificial tooth roots. These restorations are stable and strong enough to restore more than 99% of your biting and chewing power. Virtually all of our patients are good candidates for implants.
While dental implants come with a lifetime of advantages, they do also come with a higher price tag than traditional alternatives. However, they are the next closest thing to natural teeth, and the cost is immediately matched by the dramatic improvements you will see to your self-esteem, oral health and general well-being. Because of these transformative effects, we do everything we can to make dental implants in Concord, CA affordable for all our patients. We’ll file your insurance claim for you, and connect you with third-party financing companies to help you break your payment down into manageable amounts. Don’t wait to find out how Dr. Burke can change your life!
