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.
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.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Sometimes, wisdom teeth will become impacted or grow sideways, which usually calls for removal Patients should know that not all wisdom teeth are painful or cause problems during development. In these cases, a person may experience some slight discomfort as the wisdom teeth begin coming in, but once they are in their final position, the discomfort will go away.
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.

Temescal is one of Oakland, CA’s oldest neighborhoods, located in North Oakland, and centered around Telegraph Avenue. The neighborhood got its name from Temescal Creek, a large creek in the city. Temescal is mainly a residential neighborhood. Most of the houses in Temescal are early twentieth century bungalows situated along tree-lined streets. There are also lots of multi-family homes and mid-size apartment complexes throughout the neighborhood. Temescal’s demographics have significantly changed in the past 10 years as new developments and upscale shopping and restaurants were built in the neighborhood. Many young couples with children moved to Temescal due to higher real estate prices in nearby Rockridge. The commercial center of Temescal is Telegraph Avenue, in between the MacArthur BART Station and 51st Street. This area is home to many popular restaurants, such as Doña Tomás, Lanesplitters, Pizzaiolo, Bakesale Betty, and Burma Superstar. Another commercial area runs along 40th St, in between Broadway and Telegraph. This area hosts a combination of food service and retail, including Hog’s Apothecary, Homeroom, Manifesto, and more (Wikipedia).
