Have you lost one or more teeth to injury, decay, or disease? Dental implants in Santa Rosa, California, offer a permanent solution to missing teeth “near me.” Led by our dentist, Dr. Wayne Sutton, the skilled team at Santa Rosa Dentistry and Implant Center expertly places dental implants to ensure they offer durable aesthetics and oral function.
We use the latest technologies and years of experience to achieve superb results. Whether you are looking for a single implant or full-mouth restoration, you can trust our dental team for high-quality implant services.
Dental implants can replace one or multiple missing teeth within the same arch or both arches. Rejuvenating your smile with implants starts with a consultation with Dr. Sutton. In this initial meeting, we dedicate ample time as meticulous planning is essential for a successful implant procedure.
We’ll start with a comprehensive dental exam to inspect your mouth for signs of gum disease, decay, and other issues. We’ll also review your medical history and understand your treatment goals for a personalized experience.
Our team uses dental X-rays and 3D CBCT scans to establish the health of your jawbone and the position of nerves and other bone structures. These details ensure your implants are placed in an optimized position for safety, longevity, and full function.
If you have lost teeth for a long time, your bone cells may resorb in the body, robbing your jawbone of the density required to support an implant. In such cases, we’ll recommend a bone graft to stabilize your bone for implantology. You require about three months of healing after bone grafting to receive an implant, although in some cases, both procedures can be done on the same day.
Once done with the preliminaries, placing your implant is the easier part. Our expert team uses the steps below to restore your smile.
