Single Dental Implant - Modesto, CA

Tired of That Gap in Your Smile?

Replace Your Missing Tooth

When you are missing a tooth or soon will be, you might think that a dental bridge or a denture are your only options. That used to be true. While they provide generally good results, they are not the best solution for your lasting dental health. At Central Valley Periodontics & Implants we can provide you with a replacement tooth that can last a lifetime, looks real, lets you eat, speak, laugh, and smile with full confidence, and keeps your jawbone from receding after tooth loss. No other solution can match the benefits of a dental implant in Modesto, CA.

In the hands of an expert like Dr. Clarke Filippi, dental implants are the key to reclaiming a higher quality of life. As a board-certified periodontist, he completed three additional years of advanced, specialized training in implants and soft tissue treatments after dental school. He also expanded his implant expertise with further training from the acclaimed Pikos Institute. Since 2001 he’s helped people here in his hometown—even those with complex dental issues—regain the foundation for a full, healthy smile. Let him do the same for you starting with a consultation.

How Do You Get a Dental Implant?

Personalized Consultation
Dr. Filippi can quickly determine if you are a candidate for a dental implant during your first visit. Most of our patients are! During your consultation, he will learn your smile goals and do a thorough examination. This includes capturing detailed 3D images of your mouth using cone beam CT (CBCT) technology. This scanner works quickly—about 15 seconds—and uses only a fraction of the radiation of conventional CT equipment, so it’s both convenient and safe. With the complete view of the proposed treatment area that the CBCT gives us, we can begin planning your dental implant placement. We use advanced technology to complete your placement virtually before we do the actual procedure to ensure it goes smoothly and yields predictable, desirable results
1
Placement
When you return to receive your dental implant. We offer anxiety-free dental surgery to keep you relaxed and pain-free throughout your procedure. Dr. Filippi is licensed by the state of California to administer IV sedation, which leaves you with little to no memory of your treatment. If you need any related procedures done before implant placement— bone grafting, a tooth extraction or gum disease treatment , we can usually perform them during the same appointment, if not before it. Dr. Filippi will then place your implant into a predetermined location in your jaw for the most accurate placement. To facilitate your healing, we use guided tissue regeneration during the procedure. For this, we put a natural barrier membrane between the bone that will support the tooth and the gums that will surround it, giving each a chance to heal independently. As a periodontist, Dr. Filippi understands how best to protect your soft tissues. It is his specialty. We will then send you home to begin that healing process.

Recovery and Restoration
During your recovery, your implant will gradually fuse with your jawbone. Once that phase is complete, you will return to your general dentist or specialist to receive your final restoration, a beautiful crown that will make your smile whole again and allow you to do everything you would do with a natural tooth. Dr. Filippi would be proud to be able to provide you with the foundation for that fully restored smile. Reach out to our team today!
