Do you wish to replace your missing teeth with a fixed, permanent product? If so, Dr. Stephen Henry is happy to provide dental implants in Foster City, California, to give you exactly what you are looking for!

Dental implants are permanent products that replace your missing teeth and roots. They have the ability to improve your life in many ways, including your appearance, speech, comfort, self-esteem, and oral health. Dental implants are also durable and convenient products that make eating easier.

The process of installing dental implants does, however, have the potential of taking a long time to complete. It first involved your dentist placing a tooth root implant into the bone socket of the missing tooth. Your bone will then need to heal around the post and secure it in place, which could take anywhere from six to twelve weeks. Once the bone has healed, our dentist will attach a small post to the implant. When that post is placed, our dentist will then make an impression of your tooth and send them to the lab to create a natural-looking restoration. Once the teeth are ready for you, our dentist will finish the procedure by placing your new tooth into the connector post, which will give you a new and improved smile!
