Drs. Navdeep Aulakh, Parin Patel, Kevin Hashemi, Heidi Lee, Nipa Shetha, Victoria Furman, and The Phan use Biomet 3i dental implants to replace your missing teeth and restore your smile.  Implants are permanent restorations, restoration the appearance and function of your smile and your jaw, and making it easier to speak and chew.  To learn more about 3i dental implants in San Jose, California, and schedule your consultation with our dentists, please contact AZ Dental at 408-437-1111.

Biomet 3i dental implants are a unique type of dental implant.  The surface of this implant contains a unique bone-bonding component, which allows our dentists to place the implant in areas of the jaw with low bone density, and helps you heal more quickly following your implant placement surgery.  Additionally, 3i dental implants have an unparalleled success rate of almost 98%.

There are many benefits to receiving a 3i dental implant, including:

  • 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

You will typically need two appointments to complete your implant treatment.  Our dentists will begin by taking X-rays to analyze the implant site and plan your treatment.  The surgical placement of your implant root (or post) is performed under local anesthesia.  An incision will be made to expose the jawbone, and a tiny hole will be drilled, into which the implant screw will be inserted and secured.  Our dentists will place a temporary cap to cover the implant, and suture the surgical site.  After about 10 days, the sutures will dissolve or be removed, and we will follow-up on the healing process.

As 3i dental implants enhance your healing process, the second part of your treatment can be performed 10-12 weeks following implant placement.  During this part of your treatments, we will administer a local anesthetic, and make a small incision to expose the implant post.  Our dentists will remove your temporary cap and attach a small post or abutment.  We will then place a dental crown or other restoration onto this abutment to complete your smile and finish restoring your oral function.

Dental implants are designed to last for a lifetime.  Practicing good oral hygiene at home will ensure that you can enjoy the benefits of your implant for years to come.
