What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are hypoallergenic, titanium restorations that mirror the function of natural tooth roots. Once set into the jaw (near your missing tooth), your bone integrates with the implants’ surface to fuse it into place permanently. A fully integrated implant can last for the rest of your life.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Mirror natural tooth function
- Stronger than healthy teeth
- Can be used for single or multiple-tooth restorations
- Support your facial features and bone
- No dietary restrictions
- Care for them the same as natural teeth
- Designed for lifetime smile reconstruction

Best Missing Tooth Replacement Options in Santa Rosa
Single Tooth Replacement:
Missing teeth affect everything around them. The bone in that area shrinks, the adjacent teeth drift out of place, and even opposing teeth start to wear abnormally. Replacing a missing tooth in a timely manner is essential for preserving overall oral health.
Many of our dental implant cases involve single tooth replacement. The dental implant itself replaces the root of the tooth that is missing. Once fully integrated, we affix a custom ceramic crown that matches neighboring teeth. The final results are like having a natural tooth all over again.
Multiple Tooth Replacement:
Do you have several teeth in a row that need to be replaced? A pair of dental implants can support a multi-tooth porcelain bridge, instead of placing individual implants and crowns in each of those locations. Implant-supported multi-tooth restorations are both successful and cost-effective.
Full Mouth Rejuvenation
Do you need to replace all of your teeth at once? Are you considering a teeth in a day type of procedure? Instead of placing multiple individual implants, we can pair them together to restore your overall smile in a predictable, comfortable manner.
What to Expect During Implant Procedure
Getting dental implants is a minimally invasive procedure that requires little downtime. As a skilled implant provider and licensed sedation dentist, Dr. Sutton can provide a relaxing atmosphere that puts your comfort at the forefront of all we do. The implant placement is so straightforward that it can be completed with as little as local anesthetic.
Our Santa Rosa dental office utilizes 3D X-ray imaging to map out the precise placement of each implant, for optimal success and a shorter surgical procedure.
