Consultation before Dental Implant Procedure

Replicating the natural function and appearance of your lost teeth can be difficult t accomplish. Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth root.

The effects of missing teeth can be detrimental to your long term oral and medical health. Replacing missing teeth an dramatically improve your smile and the shape of your face.

Dental implant placement is not a dental specialty by itself. Many times it takes several dentists, working in different specialties, to provide the full treatment, we call this our team approach.



Consultation Before Your Dental Implant Surgery

Whether you are 18 or 80, if you are missing natural teeth, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. Age usually does not limit the placement of implants, as long as you are in good medical condition.

The FIRST step: The consultation with Dr. McBride or Dr. Carr will determine if you would be an appropriate candidate. X-Rays, impressions and an oral examination are the basis of the evaluation.

The TEAM approach: To provide the best treatment possible, you will be treated by a team of professionals. Dr. McBride has been practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery in the Hollister, California area for the last twenty years. He is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at UCSF. Dr. Carr is a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. You will see both a restorative dentist and a surgical specialist.

Usually, your dentist will be in charge of the fabrication of the replacement teeth.Dr. McBride and Dr. Carr will evaluate the placement of the implants and the quality of the bone for the implant placement.

Cosmetic Procedures
cosmetic proceduresThanks to research breakthroughs, clinical advances and instrumentation innovations pioneered by skin surgery experts, the majority of cosmetic surgeries is now minimally invasive and requires only local or regional anesthesia. This translates into superior patient safety while reducing the all-important "downtime" and recovery period. In addition, new developments and the latest techniques are constantly enhancing the results of many established skin surgery procedures.

Dental Implants
dental implantDid you know that dental implants are frequently the best treatment option for replacing missing teeth? Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridgers, dental implants are long term replacements that your oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in the jawbone.
