Dental Implants San Jose
You’ve got a missing tooth, and it’s affecting so many aspects of your life. And you’re looking for the most natural tooth replacement method, for a procedure that will give you a new tooth that looks and functions like the others.
Dental implants have revolutionized the way we treat missing teeth.
Today, an implant tooth is standard care for the replacement of missing teeth. We place the implant (a titanium screw) in your jaw, and it acts as a root for the new artificial tooth.
Dental implant placement is a routine procedure that poses very few risks. With a success rate of up to 98%, this trusted and proven treatment continues to remain the preferred tooth replacement method while continually making advancements.
The chance of minimal side effects -infection, injury to adjacent teeth, etc.- is very low.

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth with implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium, the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints.
When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant. Check out how the dental implant process works here.
And when it comes to dental implants, timing is everything. Did you know your jawbone is a lot like a muscle and must be stimulated regularly to maintain its volume? So, when a tooth is extracted (or falls out naturally), the jawbone begins to deteriorate almost immediately. In fact, studies show that within a year of tooth loss, there is a large decrease in bone width.
Thankfully, dental implants can take the place of natural teeth to provide the stimulus needed by the jaw. If done early, the need for bone grafting is greatly reduced down the road.

Deterioration of a person’s appearance and health is the natural result of missing teeth. The supporting jawbone structure shrinks once tooth loss has occurred. That’s why it’s crucial to
place implants immediately after a tooth has been lost or extracted—before bone replacement becomes most complex. Once an implant has been placed, it acts as a natural tooth, preserving bone structure, oral health, and your appearance.
To avoid the negative outcomes that can result from tooth loss, it’s crucial to consider your tooth replacement options carefully and take action quickly.
