Rebuild Your Smile With Dr. Andrea Yaley
Dr. Yaley offers dental implant restorations throughout the Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Stanford, Redwood City, and all nearby communities. If you need to replace one or more teeth in your smile, you should not be limited to just dentures and bridges. Implants provide a more stable and comprehensive restoration for patients who qualify.
Implant Dentistry Gives New Smiles
Dental implants are one of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth. If implants are right for you, there is a three-step treatment process: the implant placement procedure, a recovery period to ensure maximum support, and securing the prosthetic teeth and their connective abutments to the implants.
Dr. Yaley will guide you through each of these steps, by coordinating your treatment with the best oral surgeons in the area for implant placement, and conducting the restoration step of your dental implants treatment.
A custom abutment will be fabricated for each implant you have. No two treatment plans are exactly the same, which means that your implants are carefully placed. Using customized abutments is the best way to maintain the precise type of care that you need.
Then, a custom porcelain crown is attached to the custom abutment. A trusted dental lab creates the prosthesis that best serves your specific needs, from a porcelain crown for one missing tooth to implant-supported dentures that can rebuild the entire smile. We can also vary the manner in which the restoration is secured to the rest of the implant to further enhance the comprehensive restoration this treatment provides.
How Do I Get Implants?
When you are going to have the implants placed, Dr. Yaley coordinates with the best oral surgeons in Silicon Valley. We only refer you to professionals with a verified reputation for high-quality care because the success of placement determines the quality of your overall treatment.
After the implants are placed, the oral surgeon and Dr. Yaley closely monitor your healing period. She makes sure that your health and comfort are protected by checking in regularly and keeping track of how you are recovering. She also advises you during this time on the best practices for comfortable and successful healing.
