Why Choose Dental Implants
Tooth loss is becoming increasingly common in America, but with modern dental implants in Walnut Creek, CA, we are able to functionally and aesthetically replace missing teeth. Consisting of three parts—an implant post that stimulates the jaw bone, a natural looking dental crown and an abutment piece to connect it all together. With the permanent implant post being surgically placed within your jaw, you will not have to worry about the tooth becoming loose, falling out, or worry about what you eat. They also look natural within your smile, blending seamlessly with surrounding teeth. With proper care, you can expect them to last the rest of your life.
“Dental implants are the best long-term result because it gives you a stable support for a tooth as opposed to a removable device, which may only give you support for a short period of time”
Dr. Andrew Ferrier

Dr. Ferrier will perform a detailed cone beam CT scan to capture detailed images of your jaw health and the area surrounding your missing teeth. We use these images to create a treatment plan that will match your smile goals. We always listen to any concerns you may have any answer all questions about the implant procedure.
Using the digital images we gained, a customized guide will be created to help place the implant post within your jaw. This guide controls the exact angle, depth and location for the implant, which removes any guesswork from surgery and provides more successful results.
