Dental Implants in Folsom, CA with Dr. Chen
Oral hygiene is very important. But there may come a time when you need to replace a tooth. In some cases it may be because there was too much tooth decay and the tooth could not be saved. It may also be because of an accident or trauma. No matter the cause, it is possible to replace lost teeth with a dental implant – an anchor in your gums that allows for the placement of artificial teeth.
At Esthetic Reflections in Dentistry in Folsom, we provide dental implants for men and women that have lost teeth, and are looking to feel confident in their smile again.
Your Dental Implant Evaluation
Before requesting and obtaining a dental implant from Dr. Chen, it is important to first come to our Folsom office for an initial consultation. In our office, we’ll take a look at the health of your teeth and gums, and make sure that implant dentistry is right for you.

Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are a type of metal anchor that goes deep into the gum, taking the place of the missing roots. They are placed within the jawbone by a trained and certified oral surgeon. Once there, the anchor will need time to fuse with the jaw bone.
This can take as long as 3 to 6 months, but once completed, the anchor will be firmly connected to the jaw and capable of withstanding a great deal of force. During that time, if you’re concerned about the look of your smile, we can fit you with temporary dentures so that it appears that your tooth is present.
Once it has fused with the jaw, Dr. Chen will then start to create the replacement tooth. To do this, Dr. Chen will make an impression of your mouth to determine the right size and shape of the tooth for maximum aesthetic appeal, and so as not to affect your bite.
Dr. Chen will then create the artificial tooth. This tooth will be designed to look and feel like a normal tooth, but it will be made from porcelain. Dr. Chen will then place the artificial tooth over the dental implant, and your bite will be ready to go.
