Dental Implants in Santa Barbara, Lompoc, and Santa Maria, CA

If you have damaged or missing teeth, dental implants are a safe and reliable way of restoring your smile. Implants look, feel, and function like your own teeth — they are the most natural teeth replacement option in dentistry.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace the root of a tooth. These posts provide an anchor for porcelain teeth that look, feel, and act just like natural teeth. Implants can also be a support for dentures and full-mouth fixed restorations.

Dental implants provide a secure foundation for your new smile. Dental implants also slow the shrinking of bone and gum tissue in the area around the missing tooth, which can help you maintain a full smile.

Advances in dental implant surgery and technology have made dental implants more affordable now than ever before, too. Worried about the cost? Pathway Dental offers financing options to help you get the long-lasting and natural smile you deserve.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

The implant process begins with your dentist placing a small implant post to replace the root of your tooth. Beforehand, your dentist will make sure you’re safe and comfortable. We offer IV sedation for patients receiving dental implants as well as other sedation options.

Over the course of a few months, your bone will integrate with the implant. During this time, the implant will be hidden beneath the gumline.

Once the implant is secured to the bone, the dentist attaches abutments to the implant. These act as anchors for your new teeth. After healing from the installation of the abutments has finished, the dentist will be ready to finish the installation of your new teeth.

Our office staff will help you schedule these procedures and keep you informed. Because we complete dental implant procedures entirely in-house, you don’t have to worry about visiting multiple locations or conflicting schedules.
