David Peterson, DDS
Dental Implants, Implant Dentist, Cosmetic Dental
Dr. David Peterson has been helping our patients replace missing teeth since 1984. One of our excellent tooth replacement choices is dental implants. Dental implants are secure, permanent tooth replacements that can be used to replace either one missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. To replace the root of the missing tooth, the dental implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone. We then allow a period of healing, during which time the bone will begin to fuse with the titanium implant. This also gives your gums time to heal. After this period of healing, your talented dentist will place the dental implant restoration, which is the artificial tooth. Depending on your specific dental needs, your dental implant restoration may be a dental crown, partial denture, dental bridge, or full denture. In some cases, the implant post and restoration are placed at the same time. Dr. David Peterson will be happy to help you determine which type of dental implant and restoration is best for your smile.
Dental implants in Bakersfield, California are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth because they are stable and can restore the function and beauty of your smile. In addition, dental implants do not require adjustments to the neighboring teeth.
