Sacramento, CA dentist restores dental implants at reasonable cost

Dental implants are a popular, cost-effective method for long-term replacement of missing teeth. However, planning and surgical placement of an implant is only the first step. To restore the appearance of your smile and chewing function of your mouth, the implant must be finished with a crown. Dr. Darryl Azouz brings experience, compassion, and healthy biological techniques to patients in the Sacramento, CA area.


What is a crown?

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap. In a traditional context, it is designed to fit over a prepared natural tooth, usually one that has suffered trauma or decay, or had root canal therapy. In this case, the crown provides strength and protects the tooth from further damage.

As a dental implant restoration, the crown serves as an artificial tooth. Dr. Azouz uses non-metal, biocompatible materials for crowns that look beautifully natural and do not disrupt the healthy structure of the mouth.


The procedure

Once your dental implant is placed, the small soft tissue incision heals quickly. Over the span of several months, jawbone fuses solidly with the implant. When osseointegration is complete, it is time for a crown.

  • Impressions are taken of your mouth.
  • Dr. Azouz uses these molds to design a crown that blends into natural dentition in the arch.
  • The crown is fabricated at an offsite lab. When it is completed, you return to the office for placement.
  • The treatment site is numbed to ensure your comfort.
  • The doctor makes a tiny opening in gum tissue to access the implant.
  • A post or abutment is placed into the implant. (If the implant is a one-piece zirconia unit, this step is not necessary.)
  • The crown is cemented into place.

With good oral hygiene and regular checkups at Sacramento Natural Dentistry in Citrus Heights, restored dental implants have an indefinite lifespan.

I want to give a recommendation for a natural dentist to anyone seeking a holistic leaning dentist, or any dentistry at all for that matter. I had a dental emergency due to several cavities that ended up being put on hold because of the virus shutdown. Living in Tahoe, the options of which dentists I had to choose from was short, and all of them were closed still. Over the last month I wound up with severe tooth pain from the bacteria in the cavities that very nearly became systemic. Two days ago I searched google for a natural dentist in Sacramento and the first one that was open and actually answered their phone was the good people at Sacramento Natural Dentistry. I explained to them my predicament and they got me an appointment yesterday at two o'clock. (Next day appointment after being closed for two months!) After taking x-rays and seeing the severity of the condition, I was offered a choice in treatment options. Yes you heard that right, a choice as to which procedures best fit my life situation. After a conversation about my options, some lidocaine was administered and 3 cavities were filled with precision and amazing efficiency followed by an extraction of a tooth that we determined was beyond being worth saving. The staff was helpful and kind and treated me with respect. The dentist who performed the procedure, Dr. Darryl Azouz who has twenty two years experience in dentistry, was patient and attentive, professional and very personable. I immediately noticed his authenticity and genuine care for others. Throughout the procedure we conversed and I really must say that overall it was the most pleasant time I've ever had in a dentists chair. Any of you out there who are looking for good holistic dental care at a fair price as well as a heart based approach, I can tell you that he and his team were well worth my drive from Tahoe for a visit. I am grateful to have found them and will return for future dental work without hesitation. Keep safe and many blessings.
