Have You Considered a Dental Implant for Your Missing Tooth?

If you currently have a missing tooth (or teeth) which makes you self-conscious when you smile, we are happy to help! Dr. Amandeep S Gill and our team at Gill Family Dentistry understand how a missing tooth in your smile can affect your self-confidence and make you reluctant to smile.

Fortunately for our patients in Modesto, California, we offer dental implants to restore a missing tooth (or teeth). Dental implants can be used to replace all of your teeth, several teeth or even just one, depending on your needs.

To restore your smile, dental implants are securely planted in the jawbone. To do this, our dentist installs a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was located. This titanium screw acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely. While the site heals after surgery, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw.

Once the site is healed and the implant secured, our dentist attaches the tooth to the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced, so you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or a crown. No matter what option is used, we strive to make sure that your implant is comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.

At Gill Family Dentistry in Modesto, California, we encourage you to call (209) 549-1721 to find out more about dental implant restoration or to schedule your next visit with Dr. Amandeep S Gill. Our team is here for you!

The Invisalign® Difference

4 million Invisalign wearers have had their smiles transformed with the Invisalign smile system. With Invisalign® you wear virtually invisible thermoplastic aligners to straighten your smile and align your bite discreetly.

If you utilize the Invisalign system, our dentist will customize a treatment plan for you with your very own aligner trays. You will wear each tray for a few weeks, using calculated pressure to gently guide your teeth to their ideal alignment. Not only are Invisalign® aligners convenient to wear and remove, you can eat and drink and clean your teeth, unlike wearing traditional braces. You can look forward to excellent oral hygiene even while straightening your smile. Wearing traditional braces often don’t accomplish this. To recap:

–Discretion: with our clear aligner system, no one has to know you are straightening your smile.

–Oral Hygiene: with our removable aligners, you can eat and drink what you want, and when it’s time to clean your teeth, you can brush and floss naturally.

–Comfort: our custom aligners are comfortable to wear and won’t irritate your mouth with wires or brackets.

–Visible Goal: with our virtual treatment plan, you can see right from the beginning how your teeth will look after the straightening process is complete.
