Beautiful and Affordable Dental Implants in Fair Oaks
Dental implants are an attractive way to complete your smile and restore your teeth to optimum function. Your implant dentist at Sun Oaks Dental of Fair Oaks can replace a single tooth or address a full mouth of missing teeth. These titanium screws are inserted into the jawbone in a surgical procedure and require several months to fully heal before being restored. The final result is permanent and requires the same home care as for natural teeth whether the implant is restored to look like a single tooth, or give support to a prosthetic replacing multiple missing teeth.
Gum Surgery & Periodontal Care in the Gold River and Carmichael Areas
Comprehensive periodontal care is critical for avoiding disease that could lead to tooth loss. Attentive home care and non-surgical processes such as scaling and root planning to remove calculus, or tartar, can help, but advanced infection may call for gum surgery. Periodontic procedures work to surgically remove disease so gum tissue may reattach to the tooth. This is part of a long-term plan to keep teeth healthy by preventing bacteria from building up and causing a recurrence of the disease. We counsel patients in after-care to ensure the speediest recovery and long-term success of the in-office procedure.
