All-on-4,5,6, and 8 Dental Implants
An implant supported prosthesis is the best choice for replacing a complete set of missing teeth, using up to eight implants in each jaw. The best part about these prostheses is that a full replacement or each individual tooth is not necessary. A minimum of four implants are able to support a full set of dentures, as long as there enough healthy bone density.
Same Day Dental Implants
If you need to replace all of your teeth, Oaktown Dental is happy to provide patients with teeth in a day dental implants using the All-on-4 treatment protocol. This technique gives patients a non-removable dental arch which is secured in place by as little as four dental implants – all in one day. You can also replace a single missing tooth with an implant in just a single day.

Partial dentures help restore your eating and speaking abilities as well as your smile. The required number of artificial teeth are attached to a metal framework which fills the gap. The base can also be fabricated using gum colored plastic, which can be flexible. Partial dentures are supported by the nearby good teeth, either with wire clasps, or by being secured to crowns of the supporting teeth.
Dentures are composed of a set of artificial teeth – typically 14, on a gum colored acrylic base that is designed to fit very comfortably on your gums. With this in mind, the foundation will cover the full palate and the gums, so it is necessary that they fit properly. This is due to two reasons – the denture should not irritate the gums and the suction must keep them in place.
Tooth extraction is the practice of removing a tooth from its bone socket. If a tooth is decayed or damaged, it can often be repaired with a filling, crown or another treatment. Sometimes, however the tooth is too damaged to be repaired. As a last resort, the tooth must be extracted.

Fruitvale is a neighborhood in Oakland, CA. Fruitvale is located on the east side of Oakland and is about three miles east of Lake Merritt. The neighborhood is bordered by Highway 880, International Boulevard, Fruitvale Avenue, and High Street. The area was named by an early Oakland settler, Henderson Luelling, after the many fruit orchards which were highly concentrated in this area in the late 19th century. After the earthquake in 1906, the migration of refugees from San Francisco led to a great population increase, and the then unincorporated neighborhood was annexed into the City of Oakland in 1909. The Fruitvale shopping district is located along International Blvd. (formerly called East 14th Street until 1995), from Fruitvale Avenue to 38th Avenue. The neighborhood is home to many Latino businesses and has numerous annual cultural events, which include a Cinco de Mayo and Día De Los Muertos festival. Fruitvale has been undergoing increased renovation. In 2004, the Unity Council opened the Fruitvale Transit Village. The “Fruitvale Village” includes a combination of retail and housing along with public transportation (Wikipedia).
