Dental Implants in Fresno, CA

Long-Term Solutions for One or More Missing Teeth

Dental implants are a secure and healthy option to permanently replace missing teeth. The implant replaces the root and the crown of your tooth, which creates a natural function and appearance to your mouth. They are a popular tooth replacement solution because they provide the look, feel, and function of natural teeth.

If you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants may be the right option for you. They can replace just one tooth as well as an entire arch of teeth through full-arch restoration. The results are so natural that many patients forget they even have a replacement tooth. They can also prevent oral health problems, such as bone loss, gum disease, and dental shifting, while preserving your facial bone structure. In fact, they are often recommended by dental professionals as the healthiest tooth replacement option for patients who can undergo outpatient dental procedures.

Types of Dental Implants in Fresno, CA

During your consultation, one of our board-certified oral surgeons will evaluate your restorative needs and determine the right type of implant for you. Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center offers a variety of implant options to make implant dentistry possible for more patients and their specific needs.

  • Single Tooth Replacement. Wherever there is a missing tooth or teeth in your mouth, a dental implant can replace it.
  • Immediate Implants. On the same day as a tooth extraction, we can place an implant post to immediately restore the missing space, provided you have enough jaw bone to support the implant.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges. They can be inserted and adjusted to fit a bridge, protecting the need to grind down your healthy teeth.
  • Full-Arch Restoration. Only a few implants are needed to support a full fixed denture in one or both arches, producing a brand new and fully functioning smile for patients in need of a complete smile replacement.

The Dental Implant Surgery

Based on your individual needs and circumstances, the process can vary. However, it usually requires three or more office visits: one consultation appointment, one surgery appointment, and a couple of follow-up appointments. If you need bone grafting, tooth extractions, or want immediate implants, you may have more or fewer appointments.

At your consultation, your oral surgeon will evaluate your condition and examine your medical and dental history before determining your treatment plan. 3D scans will be taken at this time to review your facial anatomy and develop your custom treatment plan. These scans can also assist in the creation of custom 3D surgical guides. If you have any questions about your procedure, your consultation is a perfect time to ask. Your oral surgeon will address all of your questions and will help you to feel comfortable and informed about your upcoming procedure.

Your next appointment will be the day of the surgery, which is when you will receive your implants. After administering the anesthesia, your oral surgeon will place the implant post into the empty tooth socket. Next, the surgeon closes the surgical site with dissolvable sutures, and you will rest until your anesthesia wears off. Your particular procedure and how many implants you receive will determine the duration of the surgery.

Your dentist may make a set of temporary teeth for you to wear so that you won’t have to go without teeth during this time. Once your surgical sites have healed, your restorative dentist will place the new crown, which is custom-designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Cost and Value of Dental Implants

The cost of your implants depends on several factors: how many implants you need, your choice of anesthesia, your insurance, and if you require extractions or bone grafts. We will discuss all of these factors with you during your first visit and provide you with a cost estimate.

Removable dentures or bridges are often cheaper upfront, but they do not preserve or fuse to the jaw bone. This can lead to costly and extensive bone repair surgery down the road. Many patients with dentures find that they are clunky and dislike having to remove them during cleaning and eating. They remain in your mouth at all times, eliminating the need for special rinses or any removable parts during meals.

They protect your oral health while restoring your smile. Practice good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing all of your teeth regularly, and your implants will last for many years. They have a high success rate and are designed to function just like a natural tooth, completely restoring your ability to eat and smile with confidence. They promote healthy teeth and gums by preventing bone loss, which reduces the risk of periodontal disease and other medical conditions.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Patients who wear dentures often turn to dental implants after a few years. This is because dentures can be uncomfortable and are a hassle to maintain. You should replace dentures every few years and have them professionally fitted, which can make the cost add up. Dentures do not prevent bone loss and can lead to sagging facial features, making you appear older than you actually are.

With dental implants, you can eliminate these issues and enjoy comfortable, long-term tooth restoration. Full-arch restoration uses implants to support a fixed denture. There are no moving parts and your prosthesis can last a lifetime with proper care. If you wear dentures and are ready for a healthier, longer lasting option, contact us to learn about denture replacement in Fresno, CA.

Types of Anesthesia

"I was actually referred here from another local dentist. I need a couple of implants and to do that, they have to do what’s called a sinus lift. They have to do surgery to do that. Met the staff and they were real friendly — got me right in, did the surgery. The recovery process went very well. The staff was excellent — everybody, very friendly. It was very down-to-earth as far as talking about what the surgery was, what it entailed. Great experience. So I always appreciate when somebody does a good job, and I always take the time to call them and tell them they did. So five stars — great job."

I would certainly recommend Fresno Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center to anyone that needs dental work completed."

"The reason I wanted my implants was because I entertain, and I'm in front of an audience a lot, and so, therefore, when you smile, they can see where my teeth were missing. You learn to adjust to what you have, and so I would chew on the right side all the time, but I never realized how nice it was when you didn't have to worry about that — you could eat without thinking about it. I was not worried a bit when I came in. In fact, I had nothing but a good time when I was here. It was a lot of fun, and the team was outstanding. Everybody was pleasant, and I could tell they knew what they were doing. Dr. Barnhart was totally a professional, but at the same time, she had personality, and it was just really a pleasant experience. My recovery was so pleasant. I don't remember anything about it that was negative. If somebody said, "You have to do it again," I wouldn't even give it a second thought because it was never a burden."

They did a wonderful job. I would definitely recommend Fresno Oral Surgery. Everything was perfect."

Frequently Asked Questions

How many days off do I need for dental implants?

The surgical sites take a few weeks to fully heal. However, most patients find they can resume their normal routines within a few days following surgery.

Are you put to sleep for a dental implant?

Your anxiety level and the extent of your surgery will depend on the anesthesia used. Some patients are comfortable with only local anesthesia for single or immediate implants, while others prefer to rest during the procedure and wake up when it is over. We will discuss your options with you during the consultation and determine the right choice for your needs.

Do tooth implants hurt?

We try to make your surgical experience as pleasant as possible by discussing the details of your treatment beforehand and offering anesthesia and sedation options. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the surgery, but some discomfort can be expected following any type of surgical procedure. You can manage pain with ice packs or pain medications, which we outline in your post-operative instructions.

Can dental implants be done in one day?

Yes, same day dental implants or immediate implants are placed at the same appointment as a tooth extraction. Choosing to replace a missing tooth immediately saves you time and money because less appointments are needed to restore the tooth. Plus, as your socket heals from the extraction, it can heal around the implant post, maximizing your recovery time.
