Dental Implant Options in Santa Maria
Dental implants are the current standard for replacing one or more missing teeth. A dental implant is an artificial root that replaces one or more natural teeth. Dr. Riforgiate restores smiles with dental implants in Santa Maria by adding crowns or bridges or even dentures upon these replacement roots to create your new smile. Our services include single tooth replacement, multiple teeth replacements through implant bridges, and even full-mouth restoration with fixed dentures.

Why Choose Dental Implants?
These long-lasting prosthetics are many patients’ first choice, as they look natural, are strong, and provide the stability of a real tooth. As someone who has a dental implant, Dr. Riforgiate understands what it’s like to be in his patients’ position. He explains treatment and uses intra-oral cameras to help patients understand the health implications of their options for care.
Dental implants offer benefits that include:
• Ease of hygiene
• Improvements in bone health
• Prevent other teeth from shifting and loosening
• Supportive of full oral function
In comparison to dental bridges, implants are completely independent prosthetics and don’t require the placement of crowns on neighboring teeth. Implants also maintain function and stimulate bone health by mimicking tooth roots. Caring for implants does not require an extensive daily oral health routine. You can brush and floss normally to keep your new teeth clean, which makes dental implants the convenient choice in preserving your long-term oral health.
Dental Implants in Santa Maria with Dr. Riforgiate
At your implant consultation, Dr. Riforgiate determines the state of your oral health to ensure you are a candidate and coordinates every phase of your treatment plan. Information we gather is sent to a trusted local oral surgeon who places your implant posts. The surgeon builds a strong foundation for your implants to ensure that replacement teeth are secure and contribute to excellent oral health.
After your implants have fully integrated with the bone, you’ll return to our office to have your smile completely restored. The restoration process is easy – there is no anesthesia required. We add dental crowns, bridges, and even full dentures, depending on your needs.
