AZ Dental offers Biomet 3i dental implants to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile.  Implants also restore functionality to your jaw, making speaking, eating, and chewing easier.  We invite you to call us at 408-227-6000 to learn more about 3i dental implants in San Jose, California, and schedule your consultation with Drs. Andrew McDonald, Trang Thai, and Valerie De Leon.

While there are a wide variety of dental implants available, Biomet 3i dental implants are unique due to the innovative bone-bonding component included in the surface of the implant post.  This bone-bonding component allows our dentists to place your implant in areas with low bone density, and to provide a quicker recovery following your implant placement.  3i dental implants have an almost unparalleled success rate, with 98% of implants successfully placed.

Some of the benefits of 3i dental implants include:

  • Better oral health
  • High success rate
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Long-lasting results
  • Natural-looking implants
  • Multiple implants can be place in one visit
  • Sturdy, functional prosthetic teeth
  • Prevention of bone loss and gum recession
  • No adhesives or mess

Your implant placement will usually require two visits to our practice.  Our dentists will take X-rays to analyze the implant site and plan your treatment, and the implant root (post) will be inserted.  This procedure is typically performed under local anesthetic.  An incision will be made to expose the jawbone, and a tiny hole will be drilled.  The implant screw will then be inserted into the hole and secured in the designated position.  A temporary cap will be placed to cover the implant, and the surgical site will be sutured closed.  After about 10 days, the sutures will dissolve or be removed, and we will check the progress of the healing process.

Generally, 3i dental implants enhance the healing process, and the second part of your treatment can be completed 10-12 weeks following your implant placement.  During your second appointment, our dentists will administer a local anesthetic, and a small incision will be made to expose the prosthetic root.  The temporary cap will be removed, and a small post or abutment will be attached.  A new dental prosthesis (usually a crown) will be created and secured onto the abutment of your implant.

Your implant is designed to last for a lifetime.  Be sure to practice good oral hygiene so that you can continue enjoying the benefits of your implant.
