Dental Implants Provided at the dental office of Lindley Morse Zerbe, DDS in Monterey

Tooth loss is experienced even by people who have followed a disciplined oral health care routine. Damage, decay, gum disease, or congenital factors can all cause tooth loss and make you self-conscience about the way it alters your smile 

In Monterey, the dental office of Lindley Morse Zerbe, DDS offers compassionate care and the complete restoration of missing teeth with the amazing benefits of dental implants. Dr. Zerbe and Dr. Richey conveniently provide the full spectrum of services needed to successfully restore health to your smile with dental implants.

High Technology for Accurate Placement of Dental Implants 

Dental implants are titanium posts that replace tooth roots and support prosthetic crowns. The success of dental implants lies in their strategic placement into the jaw bone. Dr. Zerbe and Dr. Richey provide expert implant treatment by relying on detailed images provided by the cutting-edge technology of CT cone beam scans and the precise guidance of cad cam imaging. The techniques and tools they use ensure the procedure is minimally invasive and promote quick healing time.     

Implants Fuse with the Jaw and Preserve Bone Health 

The implant posts become integrated into the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration, where bone growth surrounds the implant over a three to four-month period. Dr. Zerbe and Dr. Richey utilize CEREC technology to immediately fabricate crowns, giving you a fully functioning and aesthetically pleasing tooth. The implant provides stimulation to your jaw, helping it to retain its strength and stop bone reabsorption. This prevents your face from taking on a sunken and prematurely aged appearance.     

Highly Successful Implant Supported Restorations are Lifelike in Appearance 

Dental implant restorations can treat the loss of a single tooth, a row of teeth, or a full arch of teeth. Matching surrounding dentition, the prosthetic crowns are made of porcelain and shine with the luminosity of natural enamel. These lifelike restorations have a success rate of over 95%, and when cared for properly, they can last a lifetime.
