Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

dental implants | el dorado hills ca Dr. Albik, our top El Dorado Hills, CA dentist, will assess your teeth and gums. Generally, we perform x-rays if there are no recent x-rays on file, and then determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants.

At El Dorado Hills Family Dental, Dr. Albik places implants for patients all the time and with great success.

In some cases, however, he may provide bone grafting if you do not have enough viable jawbone to host a dental implant. In other cases, he may perform a sinus lift to make sure you have adequate space for upper implant posts.

The dental implant process is three parts. First, Dr. Albik implants your post, usually a cylindrical and tapered post made of titanium. Once the implant is settled in, and healing is complete, our dental-implant surgeon will install an abutment. Finally, a prosthetic tooth is created and attached to the abutment to restore natural functionality and aesthetics.

Dr. Albik is one of the few doctors in El Dorado Hills, CA, who is certified in oral implantology! Whether you’re missing one tooth or several teeth, Dr. Albik is the go-to dentist for dental implants in Folsom, Cameron Park, Placerville, Fair Oaks, Rancho Murieta, Shingle Springs, Orangevale, and across the state! He can provide implant-supported dentures and implant-supported bridges, too.
