Invest in Your Oral Health
According to the American Dental Association over 5 million dental implant procedures take place every year. Dental implants are strong titanium screws that are placed into the jawbone to effectively replace anywhere from one to a whole set of teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Riar can use dental implants to help improve your quality of life and get you back to eating, speaking, and smiling the way you want to!
What To Expect
Dental Implants in Bakersfield
During the dental implant process Dr. Riar administers a local anesthetic to safely numb the area. If you have a fear of the dentist sedation dentistry may be an option for added relaxation and comfort. Next, a small incision is made into the gum and the implant is secured into place. Dissolvable stitches seal the area and allow it to heal, giving the titanium implants time to fuse to the jawbone. At the next appointment a replacement tooth (such as a dental crown) is positioned onto the abutment to create a strong new replacement tooth for a smile that looks, feels, and performs just like naturally strong teeth. With regular care, your dental implants can last a lifetime.

Before You Decide on Dental Implants
Considering Your Next Steps
Dr. Riar will help assess your specific dental needs as dental implants are not right for everyone. Certain medical conditions such as chronic illness through diabetes or leukemia or physical conditions such as general health and current jaw bone strength can affect your eligibility. Patients improve their eligibility for dental implants by abstaining or reducing smoking, practicing good regular dental hygiene and attending regular dental checkups. Whatever your current dental condition is Dr. Riar can develop a treatment option that is best for your health and comfort.
