Dental Implants in San Jose, CA - Partial & Dentures Alternative
At Winchester Dental Place, Dr. John Vu understands the difficulties associated with missing teeth. Whether you are missing one or several teeth, a patient’s need for a beautiful, full functioning smile is important to in order to complete basic functions such as chewing and speaking. Additionally, a smile with many gaps can take a toll on an individual’s self- confidence, making it uncomfortable to smile or show your teeth. Dr. Vu provides a comfortable approach to dental implant placement at his San Jose dental office to give patients a durable, natural looking smile that they deserve.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most advanced technological tooth replacement system available to replace missing teeth. Made up of three basic components- the titanium post, abutment and replacement crown or prosthetic- your overall oral health can be significantly improved. The titanium post is implanted into your jaw bone and through a process called osseointegration, this component fuses to the bone to permanently, fulfilling the role of missing tooth roots. The abutment is placed on top of the implant and is used to secure the new crown restoration in place. Depending on how many teeth are missing, Dr. Vu will custom create a new restoration to fill the void. This new tooth will look and feel like a natural tooth, ensuring restored function for patients.
Dental implants can support single or multi-unit replacement teeth. A single crown is used to when there is only one missing tooth. For patients with several missing teeth, a bridge or partial denture can be used to give a seamless smile. Likewise, dental implants may be combined with other tooth loss solutions, creating a comprehensive treatment. For example, dental implants posts have been used to secure full dentures, giving denture wearers a more secure and functional bite.

Dr. Vu uses different implant systems in order to best meet the individual needs of each patient’s oral health.

Dr. Vu also offers bone grafting procedures when the patient’s jaw bone requires additional strength to create the most durable long-lasting result as possible.
Are Dental Implants Affordable?
Because dental implants have multiple benefits that last, they are considered an affordable, worthwhile investment in oral health. Besides completing a smile and restoring your bite, dental implants can:
- Maintain jaw bone health

Successful dental implants have shown to be an effective, long-term treatment for patients missing individual or multiple teeth. Many of these individuals experience fewer long-term dental issues that are associated with traditional bridges and crowns.
