Dental Implants in El Dorado Hills
Tooth loss can inhibit nearly every aspect of your life. When you have missing teeth, it can affect your ability to chew, speak, and smile with confidence and ease. Not only does tooth loss impact how you interact in the world around you, but it also affects your oral health. If left untreated, missing teeth can lead to bone loss in the jaw and your teeth to shift into the empty spaces, leaving you with a misaligned bite.
Dr. Mohamad Albik and Dr. Sherif Hasan are highly experienced cosmetic dentists who understand the effects of tooth loss and the importance of a healthy smile. Our goal as a practice is to help you reclaim your oral health and feel empowered by your smile, which is why we offer free dental implant consultations at our El Dorado Hills, CA dental office.
What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a slender titanium post that is placed in the jaw to hold artificial replacement teeth. The post is durable and biocompatible, meaning it’s safe for the body and doesn’t harm living tissues. Once your cosmetic dentist places the post in your jaw, the post and the jawbone naturally integrate, creating a more stable foundation for your restoration teeth.
The Dental Implant Process
The first step to getting a fully restored smile is receiving a comprehensive exam by one of our implant specialists at our El Dorado Hills, CA dental office. Dr. Albik or Dr. Hasan will perform a thorough visual examination and take x-rays to determine your jaw bone’s ability to support the implant.
Sometimes, when a patient experiences tooth loss, the jawbone shrinks because it’s not being stimulated by teeth. In cases such as this, Dr. Albik performs a procedure to repair and rebuild the jaw bone so it can better hold the dental implant. To ensure each patient is as relaxed and comfortable as possible, we offer several types of safe sedation dentistry like oral sedation and numbing agents.
If your dentist determines you are a good candidate for dental implant placement, we will schedule your procedure for you.

Types of Dental Implants
1) Single Tooth Dental Implants
Single tooth implants replace a missing tooth’s root, and there is no treatment needed for the natural tooth that sits beside the implant. Once the titanium post has replaced the tooth’s root, a dental crown is attached to the post, filling in the gap.
2) Implant-Supported Dentures and Bridges
Sometimes, patients need to replace multiple damaged or missing teeth. Dr. Albik suggests an implant-supported bridge or denture to remedy this issue because denture implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for stability. For patients with total tooth loss, Dr. Albik places the implant posts in the lower and upper jaws to replace tooth roots. Once the implant naturally merges with the jawbone, Dr. Albik attaches the denture implant.
3) All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 is a full arch of teeth stabilized by four dental implants. These implants require a high level of bone density in the jaw to stay secure.
Also called “snap-on dentures,” overdentures are removable prosthetics that rely on dental implants for stability.
