The secure and stable fit of the implants ensures that your full arch will stay securely in place, eliminating the fear of embarrassing slips or the inconvenience of constantly readjusting your dentures.

Implant Benefits

Smile Country Dental is proud to offer dental implants, a great solution that provides numerous patient benefits. Here are some of the advantages of choosing dental implants as a tooth replacement option:

  1. Preserves neighboring teeth: Unlike traditional bridges, dental implants eliminate the need to "cut down" adjacent healthy teeth to support preserving natural teeth and promoting optimal oral health.

  2. Maintains jawbone structure: The underlying jawbone can deteriorate over time when a tooth is lost. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone and preventing bone loss. Exercising the jawbone helps maintain your jaw's natural structure and strength.

  3. Natural look and feel: Dental implants closely resemble your natural teeth in appearance and functionality. Once the implant integrates with the jawbone, it feels and functions like a natural tooth, allowing you to speak confidently, eat, and smile.

  4. Independent support: Dental implants are self-supporting and do not rely on surrounding teeth for stability. Isolation protects your other teeth from additional strain or stress, promoting long-term oral health.

  5. Replaces removable appliances: Dental implants can effectively replace partial plates and can even be used to stabilize loose dentures. By securing these dental prosthetics, implants provide a secure and comfortable fit, enhancing your ability to eat, speak, and enjoy your favorite foods.

  6. Easy maintenance: Dental implants are cared for just like natural teeth. You can brush, floss, and maintain your regular oral hygiene routine, ensuring the longevity and health of your implant-supported restoration.

At Smile Country Dental, we provide you with the highest quality care and optimal tooth replacement options. Our experienced team will guide you through the dental implant process, ensuring your comfort and satisfaction every step of the way.

Implant Supported Dentures

Smile Country Dental believes in empowering smiles and transforming lives. If you've lost or are on the verge of losing all your upper and/or lower teeth, we have an outstanding solution for you – implant-supported dentures.

Implant-supported dentures are an advanced dental technology that offers the closest experience to having a new set of permanent teeth. This innovative procedure combines the stability and reliability of dental implants with the convenience of dentures.

Our skilled team at Smile Country Dental specializes in providing implant-supported dentures to restore your smile and improve your quality of life. We create a solid foundation to support the denture appliance by strategically placing dental implants in your jawbone, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit, and allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

One of the significant advantages of implant-supported dentures is their ability to enhance your chewing efficiency. Unlike traditional dentures that can slip or cause discomfort while eating, implant-supported dentures stay securely in place. So you can enjoy your favorite foods without restrictions, easily savoring every bite.

Beyond the functional benefits, implant-supported dentures offer an aesthetic transformation that will boost your self-confidence. With our expertise and attention to detail, we create dentures that closely resemble natural teeth, ensuring a beautiful and harmonious smile you'll be proud to show off.

At Smile Country Dental, we understand the importance of personalized care. Our compassionate team will thoroughly assess your dental needs during your consultation and provide you with a customized treatment plan. We'll guide you through each step of the implant-supported denture process, answering any questions you may have.

Let us help you achieve a life-changing transformation with implant-supported dentures, bringing back your natural smile and restoring your confidence.

Immediate Placement

When medically possible, we offer the option to remove diseased or loose teeth and replace them with dental implants during the same visit. This approach saves you time and accelerates the overall process, allowing the implants to be ready to place caps or crowns more quickly.

Simultaneous bone grafting is a crucial aspect of this treatment method. By performing bone grafting at the same time as implant placement, we can ensure optimal support and stability for the implants. This technique helps to enhance the success and longevity of your dental implant restoration.

Our goal is to minimize the number of surgical visits while maximizing the efficiency of your treatment. Combining tooth extraction, implant placement, and bone grafting, we streamline the process, reducing the overall treatment time and allowing you to enjoy your new smile sooner. Our team will assess your needs during your consultation and determine the most suitable treatment plan. We will provide detailed information and personalized recommendations to ensure you comprehensively understand the process.

At Smile Country Dental, we are committed to delivering exceptional care and utilizing advanced techniques to provide you with the best possible outcomes. Trust our expertise and dedication to guide you through your dental implant journey, making it as convenient and efficient as possible. Contact our Napa dental office or Santa Rosa dental office today to schedule a consultation and explore the possibilities of same-day dental implants with simultaneous bone grafting. Let us help you achieve a beautiful and functional smile.

Day Of Treatment

At Smile Country Dental, your comfort and well-being are our top priorities, especially during dental implant procedures. To ensure a smooth and stress-free experience, we have some helpful guidelines for your appointment:

On the day of your appointment, we kindly ask that you arrive 15-20 minutes before your scheduled time; this allows you to settle in and alleviate any pre-surgery nervousness. Rest assured that our friendly team will make every effort to make you as comfortable as possible during your visit.

For your peace of mind and safety, we recommend bringing a friend or relative along on the day of your treatment. Depending on the procedure, you may receive anesthesia and other medications during the surgery. Having a responsible adult accompany you provide support and ensures someone can stay with you during the procedure and drive you home afterward.

We will provide detailed instructions regarding medications, dietary restrictions, and any necessary preparations before your treatment to prepare you fully. Please carefully follow these instructions to ensure the best possible outcome. Additionally, we will provide you with comprehensive post-surgery instructions, including guidelines for cleaning and maintaining your implant. If required, we will prescribe medications to manage post-surgery discomfort and support your speedy recovery.

After Placement of Dental Implants

Do not disturb the wound. Avoid rinsing, spitting, or touching the wound on the day of surgery. There will be a metal healing abutment protruding through the gingival (gum) tissue.

BLEEDING. Some bleeding or redness in the saliva is normal for 24 hours. Excessive bleeding can be controlled by biting on a gauze pad placed directly on the bleeding area for 30 minutes. If bleeding continues please call the office for further instructions.

SWELLING. Swelling around the mouth, cheeks, eyes and sides of the face is not uncommon as it is the body's normal process in repairing itself. Swelling does not always appear immediately. It may take 12 to 24 hours before swelling becomes apparent. Swelling may not reach its maximum until 2-3 days post-surgery. Swelling may be minimized by the immediate use of ice packs post-surgery. Two baggies filled with ice, or ice packs should be applied to the sides of the face where surgery was performed. The ice packs should be left on continuously while you are awake. After 36 hours, ice has no beneficial effect. If swelling or jaw stiffness has persisted for several days call the office.

DIET. Drink plenty of fluids. Avoid hot liquids or hot food. Soft food and liquids should be eaten on the day of surgery. Return to a normal diet as soon as possible unless otherwise directed.

PAIN MEDICATION. You should begin taking pain medication as soon as you feel the local anesthetic wearing off. For moderate pain, 1 or 2 Tylenol or Extra Strength Tylenol may be taken every 3-4 hours. Ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) may be taken instead of Tylenol. Ibuprofen, bought over the counter comes in 200 mg tablets: 2-3 tablets may be taken every 3-4 hours as needed for pain. For severe pain, the prescribed medication should be taken as directed. Be sure to take the prescribed antibiotics as directed to help prevent infection. Do not take any of the above medication if you are allergic, or have been instructed by Smile Country Dental not to take it.

HOME HYGIENE CARE. The night of surgery, use the prescribed Peridex Oral Rinse before bed. The day after surgery, the Peridex should be used twice daily, after breakfast and before bed. Be sure to rinse for at least 30 seconds then spit it out. Warm salt water rinses (teaspoon of salt in a cup of warm water) should be used at least 4-5 times a day, as well, especially after meals. Brushing your teeth and the healing abutments is no problem, but be gentle initially with brushing the surgical areas. Good oral hygiene is essential to good healing.

PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. Keep physical activities to a minimum immediately following surgery. Physical activity could cause throbbing or bleeding of the surgical implant area.

WEARING DENTURES. You will always have teeth during your recovery period. Temporary partial dentures or full denture arches should not be used immediately after surgery and for at least 10 days.

Request An Appointment

Thank you so much. I avoid the dentist at all cost. Everyone made me feel welcomed and very comfortable. I will definitely be returning. Very friendly and experienced staff. Everyone there are very caring and gentle with fast appointment scheduling. I have been to many bad dentists before. I'm so glad I found this place! They also have a discount program if you have no dental insurance! I've already referred 3 people who will be making appointments, I believe one is there as we speak! It was actually FUN going to the dentist! I had no anxiety, no pain, and no problems! Best experience with DDS ever! I had a broken tooth requiring a crown. The process took two appointments - the first appointment I was fitted with a temp crown, the second appt the temp crown was replaced with a permanent. Both appts were great, the dentist and tech were super. My orthodontist is special. She conducts herself with charm and friendliness that are such reassuring traits helping me relax and be fully comfortable in her care. I trust her professional knowledge and skills without reservation. I am so very pleased that she is my orthodontist.
