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.
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. A very loose tooth will also need to be extracted if it can’t be saved, even using a bone graft.
Same Day Dental Implants

Wisdom Tooth Extractions

Lakeshore is a central neighborhood in Oakland. Lots of people in town spend time here, jogging by the lake, commuting on one of the major bus lines that pass through or visiting one of the many restaurants or cafes in the area. Lakeshore just a quick walk from Lake Merritt, Oakland’s crown jewel, making it a perfect place to stop before or after strolling by the lake. Grand Avenue, a main street in the Lakeshore neighborhood has seen and survived many changes through time, fashion, and taste. Currently, the avenue is a laid back and easygoing social center great for finding breakfast, getting coffee, or a late night drink. The other main street, Lakeshore Avenue is a hub for shopping and dining. It’s shorter in length than Grand Avenue, but the street is narrower and more businesses are condensed in, so it is a very popular area always alive with people. This tree-lined street is a wonderful place to stroll, eat, and shop (sfgate).
