When you are considering your options for restoring a smile that is missing teeth, you'll want to discuss the benefits and risks of dental implants with Fresno dentist Dr. Gregory G. Miyake. Dr. Miyake is an LVI trained dentist with years of experience with implant dentistry. He can help you make the right decision for your smile restoration.

The many advantages of dental implants include:

  • Long-lasting and durable solution.
  • Minimal damage to adjacent teeth.
  • Natural look and feel.
  • Improved speech and function.

Dental implants will blend in with your natural teeth. Because they are connected to your jawbone, you will benefit from their added strength in your bite.

Getting dental implants does require surgery, and like any surgery there are risks associated with implant dentistry, including:

  • Infection at the implant site.
  • Rejection of the implant by your body.
  • Nerve damage.
  • Sinus problems with upper jaw implants.

Dr. Miyake will discuss the potential complications involved with implant dentistry and help you make an informed decision about whether dental implants are the right solution for your dental restoration.

If you are considering dental implants for your missing or decaying teeth, please call 559-224-0103 or contact Dr. Gregory G. Miyake  for your consultation about your implant dentistry options in our Fresno, California, office.
