When you are missing adult teeth, your oral health is at risk. Specifically, you risk losing bone mass in your jaw, which can impact the health of your remaining teeth, your appearance, and the strength of your bite.
Your teeth have roots that extend deep into your gums and jawbones. When you chew, it puts pressure on your teeth. That pressure is absorbed down through the roots of your teeth where it stimulates your jawbones. This simple action helps to keep your jawbones strong and healthy.
When there is no tooth there to transfer the pressure, your jawbone does not get the stimulation it needs. This can cause the bone to weaken and actually lose mass. If left untreated, it can also lead to further tooth loss.
Dental implants are the best solution for missing adult teeth because they mimic the function of your tooth’s root. This prevents bone loss and keeps your jaws healthy and strong. At San Leandro Dental Studio, we will help you get high-quality dental implants to keep your smile looking and feeling great for years to come.

Same Day Dental Implants
Same day dental implants in San Leandro provide a quick and convenient solution for those needing long-term tooth restoration. The appointment involves a brief session of drilling a small hole in the jaw where the implant is placed, followed by fitting the abutment (the connector between implant and crown) in one single procedure. Compared to traditional dental implants, same day implants are much faster – reducing patient’s wait time from weeks to hours.
Same day dental implants in San Leandro also come with many benefits that make them a great choice when it comes to restoring teeth long term. Because they involve smaller holes than traditional implants, they require less trauma to the surrounding tissues– resulting in less swelling and discomfort for patients during healing. Additionally, same day implants have superior osseointegration-- meaning that the connection between implant and jawbone is much stronger leading to greater retention of the prosthetic tooth. And as an added bonus, because every part of this procedure can be done in one visit, there is no need for multiple visits which saves both time and money. Same day dental implants in San Leandro offer an excellent way for patients needing to restore their teeth quickly and conveniently without sacrificing quality or longevity of results.
What Exactly Is a Dental Implant?
The dental implant itself is a small metal post, usually made of titanium. In order to restore your missing tooth, an oral surgeon will place the implant deep in your gums where your tooth’s roots used to be. As your jaw heals, your bone will actually start to grow around the implant, which ensures the implant will be stable.
Once you have completely healed from the implant procedure, Dr. Kabiri will attach a custom-made crown to the top of your implant. This crown becomes your new tooth, and we can match its color, shape and size to your natural teeth so your smile will look natural.
Your new tooth will look, feel, and work just like your natural teeth. When your smile is fully restored, you can continue to eat the foods you love and smile with confidence.
