Dr. Ganeshappa can help patients replace missing teeth with long lasting dental implants. Dental implants are biocompatible dental prosthetics that are placed into the jaw. Dr. Ganeshappa and the dental team provide the preliminary exams and planning when patients are looking for a permanent way to replace teeth. Dr. Ganeshappa then coordinates placement of the dental implant and maintains communication with the dental implant specialist. When the dental implant specialist clears the patient for the implant restoration, Dr. Ganeshappa and staff will set up an appointment to proceed with the restoration phase of the dental implant. Dr. Ganeshappa is proud to provide precise abutment and dental restoration placement in the Alamo Height and Oakwell Farms areas of San Antonio.WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS
Made from biocompatible titanium, implants are screws that are carefully placed into the jaw bone. Over the next few months, the dental implant will fuse to the surrounding bone via a process called osseointegration. After the dental implant is properly fused to the bone, it becomes part of the jaw and nearly as strong as a natural tooth root. Implants are used to support bridges, dentures, or single crowns.ARE DENtAL IMPLANTS WORTH THE INVESTMENT?
Dental implants are an investment that will last for years with regular visits to your dentist and with consistent, proper home care by the patient. Instead of spending more time and money restoring the same teeth with denture relining or new bridges over and over again, dental implants offer a permanent solution that remains resilient for a lifetime.
