If you’re missing one or more teeth, David Gibson, D.D.S., of Livermore can use dental implants to help restore your flawless smile. A dental implant consists of a small piece of metal which is surgically implanted in the jawbone, essentially forming a replacement for the root of a tooth. As the tissue heals over the next two to six months, the bone around the implant fuses to the implant, creating a perfectly stable structure.
After the patient has healed, Dr. Gibson uses the implant to anchor crowns, bridges, or dentures - recreating your perfect smile.
