Hi, I'm Diane; I'm from San Jose, CA. I came to see Dr. Barber because I had gotten some bad news from my dentist. Unfortunately, it was some periodontal disease; I found out I had to lose a tooth, and that was very devastating. So I needed to see him for the extraction....

Whether a single implant is placed or multiple implants to support a bridge or full fixed denture, dental implants are one of the best restorative solutions available. Dental implants are designed to provide replacement teeth that function, look, and feel like natural teeth. You can even maintain your dental implants with regular oral hygiene practices! The dental implants are anchored securely within the jaw bone and act just like the missing tooth root, so you can brush and floss them normally. The crown is placed on top of the dental implant and will closely resemble the rest of the patient’s teeth, offering the most natural look.
Dental implants have been utilized as a successful tooth replacement option for over 30 years. If you are missing a single tooth, or even need to have multiple teeth replaced, and are considering your tooth restoration options, you should really consider dental implants. To determine if you are a candidate for dental implant placement, one of our oral surgeons will perform a thorough oral examination, review your medical history and take x-rays. Overall, dental implants offer increased stability, improved facial aesthetics, and improved oral health.
The wisdom teeth are your third molars and are the last molars to erupt in the back of your mouth. These molars are undetectable without regular dental examinations or until they cause serious oral health problems. Wisdom teeth removal is necessary because patients are more susceptible to a host of other problems when they keep their wisdom teeth, like periodontal disease, dental crowding, and tooth impaction. The surgeons at Greater Modesto Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Center recommend that the wisdom teeth be removed early, usually during the mid- to late teens. At this developmental stage, the wisdom teeth aren’t fully established, ensuring that the patient has the best chance at a quick procedure and recovery process.
Most wisdom teeth extractions require a local anesthesia, which is an injection to numb the surgical site. But sometimes, general anesthesia is also utilized to offer patients a relaxing surgical experience. When you meet with one of our oral surgeons, we will review your specific treatment and go over your anesthetic preference. We want to make sure you are fully informed and experience the best results from treatment.
When patients have experienced extensive tooth loss, restoring an entire upper or lower arch of teeth with individual dental implants requires an extensive restoration, long recovery, and expensive procedures. Plus, some patients want a more permanent solution rather than temporary solutions that tend to slip or make clicking noises. Now, patients choose full-arch restoration because this implant-supported denture offers them a brand new set of teeth in an inclusive procedure so they experience reduced healing time at a fraction of the cost of other replacement options.
At Greater Modesto Dental Implant & Oral Surgery Center, our oral surgeons offer this innovative procedure to our patients. Full-arch restoration is a time-efficient treatment, offering the most natural-looking, secure, functional, and permanent restoration. To learn more about full-arch restoration and whether or not you are a candidate, please call us to make a consultation appointment. Our extensively trained oral surgeons are happy to assess your oral health and discuss all of your treatment options with you. With our help, you will be chewing, speaking, and smiling again in no time.
