Dr. Munira Lokhandwala, Star Brite Dental Visit the best dental implant dentist in the Dublin, California area

One problem that can negatively impact the smile is missing teeth. When patients are missing teeth, it can have a variety of consequences. Missing teeth can:

  • Reduce biting and chewing efficiency
  • Make it difficult to speak clearly
  • Result in jawbone loss
  • Cause shifting of the existing teeth
  • Make patients self-conscious about their smiles

When patients are missing teeth, they are encouraged to speak to a dentist about replacement options. One of the best replacement solutions offered by a dentist in the Dublin, California area is dental implants. Dr. Munira Lokhandwala of StarBrite Dental is proud to offer dental implants for men and women seeking a way of replacing one or more teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium post used to hold a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge in place. It is primarily used for the replacement of missing teeth, whether it is one tooth or several. This titanium post is biocompatible and provides strength and stability unsurpassed by any other option.

Dr. Munira Lokhandwala often suggests dental implants for patients who have sufficient bone structure to ensure successful placement. The dental implant stimulates bone growth which wraps around the implant and provides the stability necessary to function properly. This process, called osseointegration, is what gives the implant the strength needed.

Dental implants require several visits for placement. The initial consultation appointment is a time for the dentist to take x-rays to check the bone structure. Once patients have decided they want implants, they schedule an appointment for the oral surgery. The dental implants are put in place and the process of osseointegration requires several weeks to occur. Once the implant is firmly in the bone, it is restored with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on the needs of the patient.

Before I met Dr. Lokhandwala, I read all (I MEAN ALL) dentists reviews, probably like you are doing right now. So, what can I do or say to make you realize just how amazing Dr. Lokhandwala is?? My first visit was at the Fremont office, over 10 years ago, and I was terrified. I hadn’t been to a dentist in YEARS, so I figured pain was the only answer. I was so surprised. I had a cleaning, and since I was so fearful they deadened my jaw so they could do their work. Worse thing? I forgot about the drool afterward! I have gone on to have several more cleanings, and an implant. I must admit the implant was frightening, but their meds REALLY helped. I understood what was going on, I just didn’t care! Her calm demeanor and patience is perfect for this profession. Dr Lokhandwala and her amazing staff are so helpful and understanding. I just retired and now their Dublin office is closer. It’s terrific and the staff remembered me after a 5 year hiatus. Dr. Lokhandwala explains everything and makes recommendations, no pressure, just info. It’s your choice, your budget. I feel respected and safe with this group. A review can no way tell you everything you might want to know, so I suggest make an appointment and decide for yourself!
