Today, there are several options available for rebuilding lost teeth, but none are as effective or as lifelike as dental implants. At Sage Dental Care, Dr. Branco and Dr. Kim highly recommend this state-of-the-art service if your smile has been left incomplete by damage or decay. We are happy to provide the entire implant treatment process (including both surgery and restoration) right here in one convenient office location to help you remain at-ease with the team you know and trust. Contact our North Reno or South Reno, NV practice today to schedule your first consultation!
After our team has determined that you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the first step of treatment is the surgical placement of the implants into the jawbone. When this step is complete, you begin on a months-long healing process; during this time, your body’s natural instincts take over as the oral tissue and bone form around the implants, creating a solid foundation.
Finally, it is time to return to Sage Dental Care so that we can design and place the ideal restoration on top of the implants. All-ceramic dental crowns are recommended for individual implants, while a customized, implant-retained bridge or denture can cover multiple implants at once in a more cost-effective manner.
When a patient has experienced the loss of all the natural teeth along the top or bottom arch of the mouth (or both), their overall quality of life can be dramatically reduced. What’s worse is that the loss of jawbone density over time can make traditional implant treatment very difficult. Thankfully, our two Reno, NV office locations offer All-On-4 as a worthwhile alternative. Like the name implies, All-On-4 requires the placement of just four implants into the jawbone at strategic positions, which eliminates the need for costly, time-consuming grafting procedures in most cases. Better yet, an implant-retained denture can be placed on the very same day, which saves you from having to be without the strong, capable smile you need.
