Overview of the tooth implant procedure near Daly City

Tooth implant procedure daly city

People in Daly City frequently visit Dr. Leo Arellano to restore their smile after tooth loss or extraction. Although partial dentures and dental bridges are available in his office, he may recommend a dental implant to repair the smile. Dental implant restorations are preferred by many doctors and patients around the world because they closely mimic natural teeth in feel, form, and function.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small, screw-like posts that are used to replace the roots of missing teeth. When topped with dental crowns, they replace missing teeth, allowing patients to chew properly, speak clearly, and smile beautifully once again. They are so natural looking and feeling that some patients forget they are dental restorations.

Although dental implants are not right for every patient, most people are potential candidates for this procedure. In general, dental implants may be a good choice if the patient:

  • Is missing one or more teeth
  • Has a fully matured jawbone
  • Has sufficient healthy bone structure for placement or is able to receive a bone graft
  • Has a healthy mouth
  • If free of medical conditions that might affect healing of bone tissue
  • If willing and able to commit to a process that takes several months
We are here to help Call us at 415-881-4343 or Schedule an Appointment today

The process

The first step in the process is determining candidacy through discussion, reviewing medical and dental history, a thorough examination, and x-rays. Once the doctor has determined that the patient is eligible for the procedure, he will develop an individualized treatment plan.

The implants are placed in the jawbone in a gentle, precise surgery. The bone fuses to the implant as it heals, which typically takes from 4 to 6 months. Once the implants are stabilized in the bone, abutments (small connectors) are attached to the implants. The abutments hold the new teeth securely. The new teeth are matched to the existing teeth in color and shape for seamless integration into the smile.

Caring for dental implants

Dental implant restorations require the same care as natural teeth. If patients practice good oral hygiene and visit the dentist regularly, their dental implants can last a lifetime.

Doctor Arellano has over two decades of experience in the dental implant procedure. To schedule an appointment with an experienced, compassionate, skilled implant dentist, call 415-881-4343 and schedule an appointment today.

I've been going to Dr. Arellano for about 20 years and I continue because of the excellent care and treatment I get with him and his whole office team. He is both professional and personable.
Recently I had a newer technique of gum surgery/grafting at his office called, "Pinhole Surgical Technique of gum grafting." I personally found this to be much easier to handle than the other style of gum grafting that I received years ago for the other side of my mouth. That worked, it was where part of my roof of my mouth was cut and surgically sewn onto the gum. However, I much prefer the pinhole technique. It was actually the easiest dental work I've had (beyond regular cleaning.) It didn't take too long and it didn't feel uncomfortable getting it done. I was swollen, but I think that happens regardless of what kind of gum grafting is done. I needed ibuprofin for a few days, no major pain. It healed well and just felt easy. I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth because that's me, but this was the easiest work I've ever had done.
So, if you are debating which kind of surgery to do I personally would recommend the pinhole surgery.

We've gone to Dr Arellano for many years and have never been disappointed with any of the work he's done. Recently my husband broke a tooth and Leo got him in and had the tooth repaired within a few short hours. Service like that is very hard to finds these days. His office staff is fantastic. Nice people you are always glad to see. I would highly recommend Dr Arellano to anyone who is searching for an honest, competent, well trained dentist.
