Discover the revolutionary power of dental implants.
Missing teeth are more than an aesthetic nuisance — they contribute to long-term dental health issues. Gaps in your smile leave room for teeth to shift out of alignment and for the jawbone to deteriorate. While many prosthetic tooth options resolve cosmetic concerns, they do not address the root cause of bone loss. Implants are the only dental restorations that replace both the root and the crown of a missing tooth for a long-term and life-changing smile solution.

The Gold Standard of Dental Restoration
Do missing teeth have you struggling to speak, bite, chew or even confidently smile? Whenever you exert force on your jawbone, such as biting or chewing, the roots of your teeth send signals to generate bone tissue in that area. When you lose a tooth, the jaw no longer receives those signals, resulting in bone loss that can cause facial distortion or collapse.
To correct and prevent this, dental implants replace the entire tooth. A biocompatible implant post is embedded into the jaw where it integrates with the surrounding bone tissue to stimulate bone growth and save the jawbone. A custom-designed dental restoration is securely fitted over the implant post for beautiful, functional, durable and natural-looking results that can last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Which Implant Restoration Is Right for You?
When you come to Le Chabot Dental for your initial implant consultation, Dr. Andy Le will begin by performing a thorough examination of your smile and discussing your aesthetic goals and oral health needs. With these in mind, our implant specialist will help you decide which of our implant restoration options is best for you. Regardless of your choice, you can expect a unique, lifelike restoration designed to perfectly fit your smile, improving your ability to eat and speak comfortably and reviving your confidence in your smile.
Single dental implants are designed to replace a single missing tooth. After implant placement, our implant specialist will design a custom dental crown to secure over the implant post and blend seamlessly into your natural smile.Learn More
Implant-supported bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth in a row. Secured in place with two dental implants on either end of the custom-made prosthetic, they provide a durable and long-lasting implant solution.Learn More
An implant-supported denture replaces multiple missing teeth or an entire missing dental arch. These prosthetics, whether partial or complete, are an exceptional choice for patients looking for something more secure and reliable than traditional dentures. In some cases, a pre-existing denture can be retrofitted and secured into place with implants.Learn More
Also known as All-on-X implants, full-mouth dental implants are recommended to replace entire arches of missing teeth. These permanent restorations can last for decades while fully restoring all of your oral functions. No food is off limits with full-mouth implants!Learn More
Full-Mouth Dental Implants
Zygomatic implants are used to replace upper teeth when there has been significant bone loss, either due to resorption or severe periodontal disease. Secured into the cheekbone instead of the maxillary bone, these restorations eliminate the need for bone grafting.Learn More
Cutting-Edge Implant Technology
The high standards we set for our implant process begin long before the first implant is placed — we use the latest in dental technology from your initial consultation to your last follow-up appointment.
At your consultation, Dr. Le will use cone beam technology to create 3D images of your entire mouth. The accuracy of these models allows our team to create stunning dental restorations that perfectly fit your smile. Learn More
InstaRisa Facial Scanner
The InstaRisa digital scanner captures a full 3D model of your face as well as your oral structures, so our implant specialist can show you a preview of how your full-arch treatment will affect your bite and face shape before beginning the implant process. Learn More
Your past dental history shouldn’t prevent future dental health. If you have been told your jaw is not strong enough to support implants, our implant specialist can offer bone grafting to increase bone density and prepare you for your implant placement. Learn More
Like bone grafting, sinus lifts, also known as sinus augmentations, improve the strength and supporting bone tissue in your upper jaw. By combining this procedure with zygomatic implants, we can ensure every patient has access to implant restorations. Learn More
Unlike many dental offices, our team offers conscious IV sedation as well as nitrous oxide to ensure your implant placement is completely comfortable while still allowing you to remain awake and responsive throughout your visit. Learn More
Platelet-rich fibrin therapy is a cutting-edge technology that harnesses the body’s natural healing properties to make your post-surgery recovery period shorter and more comfortable as well as protecting the site from infection. Learn More
With our in-house 3D printer, we can create high-quality implant restorations without making you wait. By creating oral appliances in our office, our implant specialist can apply their artistic eye and high standards to every step of the implant process. Learn More
Stunning Results for a Lifetime of Smiles
No matter how many teeth you are replacing, dental implants offer beautiful results that look, feel and function as naturally as your original teeth. Made from stain-resistant material, your dental restorations offer a dramatic boost to your confidence for years to come, and when cared for properly, your dental implants can last for the rest of your life.

Are Dental Implants for You?
Frequently Asked Implant Questions
What Are All-on-4 Implants?
All-on-4 is an alternative dental implant solution that is ideal for patients with low bone density or volume. It is also an excellent option for patients with dentures who have experienced complications such as poor bite function, increased risk of gum disease and frequent replacement.
Whereas single implants can require multiple surgeries, All-on-4 can be completed in one visit without bone grafting or sinus augmentation. It also has minimal recovery time and can have lower overall costs compared to conventional implant procedures.
What Are Mini Implants?
These small implants are often the best option for patients with smaller teeth and incisors. Mini dental implants can also be ideal for front teeth, premolars, or teeth situated in narrow areas.
With mini implants, you can expect the procedure and recovery time to be quicker than traditional dental implants because they are placed into the bone without affecting any sensory nerves.
Who Can Get Dental Implants?
Patients who have not suffered extensive bone loss and retain healthy gums are able to receive a dental implant. If you have suffered bone loss, your jaw may not be strong enough to support a dental implant post; in which case, we suggest receiving a bone graft before continuing with your implant treatment.
We invite you to call Le Chabot Dental at 510-276-5533 to schedule a consultation where you will be able to discuss your options for dental implant treatment in San Leandro, California.
