Lasting Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants – Menlo Park, Palo Alto, San Mateo
Are you missing teeth, or do you have an artificial tooth that won’t stay in place? If so, dental implants may be the solution. At our office in Redwood City, we offer dental implant services to patients in Menlo Park, San Mateo, and Palo Alto. Implant dentistry offers patients a stronger and more permanent way of replacing missing teeth than tooth-supported restorations. Made of titanium, dental implants anchor bridges, crowns, and dentures securely to the jawbone. Implant-supported restorations do not slip or slide and can last for many years.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a tiny titanium post surgically placed in the jawbone, where it functions as the tooth's root. An abutment is attached to the implant and serves as an anchor for the appropriate dental restoration. The complete apparatus stays securely in place and looks and feels just like a natural tooth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Because of the many benefits of dental implants, many patients from Menlo Park, San Mateo, Palo Alto, and other areas near our Redwood City office choose implant dentistry instead of traditional tooth replacement options. Dental implants are strong, safe, and attach easily to the underlying bone. They provide the support structure to which restorations can be attached. Because dental implants fuse to the jawbone, they offer better stability, look extremely natural, and provide a secure fit.

Implant Dentistry at the Office of Dr. Jean Barthman
For patients in Palo Alto and other communities near our practice, we provide outstanding implant dentistry services. If you need to have implants placed, Dr. Barthman can discuss with you which type of dental implants is best for your individual case. She can help prepare you for the dental implant procedure, which typically involves three steps: implantation, osseointegration (while the jawbone heals), and placement of restorations. Dr. Barthman may refer you to an esteemed dental surgeon for placement of the implant, after which she will provide the treatment for the restoration of the implant at her office in Redwood City. If you already have dental implants, Dr. Barthman can maintain or restore your implants.
