Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Santa Rosa

Dental Implants are Permanent.

Implants are a way to replace missing teeth lost due to decay, gum disease or accidents and are a permanent, solid alternative to treatments like dentures. 

Feel & Function Like Natural Teeth.

A common consequence of missing teeth is impaired chewing and biting. Dental implants offer strength and stability to replacement teeth and with proper care, can last for many years, allowing you to eat all the foods you love.

Implants can Improve Your Appearance.

Dental implants let us give our patients beautiful, new replacement teeth that match your natural tooth color and shape exactly. It’ll look like you were never missing a tooth when the implant process is done, and allow you to smile, laugh and stop hiding your missing teeth.

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the latest and often most effective solution to missing teeth. Teeth can be lost in many ways, whether it’s decay, gum disease, accident, trauma, failed root canal, or other dental issues. Implants can help replace lost teeth and restore both the beauty of your smile and the function of your teeth and bite. They have a great track record and are long-lived and effective when compared to older methods of replacing teeth, such as bridges and dentures.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are metal posts that anchor in and bond with your jawbone, similar to the roots of your natural teeth. They provide a strong, stable base for replacement teeth, which may be fixed or removable, depending on a patient’s needs. With an excellent success rate of over 95 percent, dental implants can be a permanent solution to your oral health issues.

Why Consider Dental Implants?

Some of the many benefits of dental implants include both aesthetic and functional improvements. Restoring missing teeth improves your appearance and restores your smile, while boosting your self-confidence. 

Replacement teeth also make it easier to eat a variety of foods, and make it easier to practice good dental hygiene and keep your teeth clean. And implants will improve your long-term dental health, by preventing further bone loss in the area of missing teeth, and stabilizing your ability to chew and bite. Restoring your mouth to its natural level of functioning means that all your teeth can remain healthier for longer

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?

The choice to get dental implants is an individual one, and not all patients may be good candidates for implant surgery. One important consideration is your current dental health, and whether the area in which you are missing teeth has enough healthy jawbone to support implants. 

Dr. McCormick can talk with you about your specific situation and assess what the best way to move forward might be.

About Dr. Andrew McCormick:

Dr. Andrew T. McCormick is a native Californian originally from Monterey County. He graduated from U.S.C. school of dentistry and subsequently opened his practice in Santa Rosa, finding Sonoma County to be an ideal place to locate. 

Learning more about the connection between dentistry, medicine, and medications and environmental toxins is of particular interest to Dr. McCormick because he sees the effects of these on his patients.  Because of this, he has sought out non-traditional and progressive educations.  Some of these groups have recently been the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) and the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT).

One of Dr. McCormick’s interests is involvement in the community.  He was an early participant in Leadership Santa Rosa and now he sits on the board for PDI, a dental clinic in Windsor for underprivileged children. In January 2010, he became an accredited member of AACD, one of 350 dentists worldwide, after extensive work to raise his level of expertise in cosmetic and rehabilitative dentistry.
