Dental Implants in Rocklin, CA
Replace Missing Teeth with the Secure Solution and Restore your Confident Smile.
Do you have unsightly gaps due to missing teeth? Do you wear dentures that slide around when you smile or talk? Dr. Darce Slate can help with dental implants in Rocklin, CA.
What are Dental Implants?
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.
Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants provide many benefits over other replacement methods for missing teeth. For example, natural tooth roots provide stimulation to the jawbone. When you are missing teeth, this stimulation is missing and the jawbone deteriorates. Dental implants, however, mimic the stimulation of natural tooth roots and prevent further bone loss.

Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Dental implants in Rocklin, CA, also provide stability unmatched by any other tooth replacement method. Made of biocompatible titanium, dental implants actually fuse to the jawbone creating a solid base to support replacement teeth. Implants are designed to be a permanent and natural looking replacement for missing teeth. Maintenance of dental implants is similar to care of your natural teeth. It is important to brush, floss and have regular dental cleanings to maintain your dental implants.
Enjoy the Stability of Implant Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures can slide when you are talking, eating or smiling. This is not only embarrassing, but can also adversely affect your nutritional needs when your diet is restricted to soft foods. Dr. Slate offers a solution to these denture problems with implant supported dentures. Implant supported dentures are retained on dental implants that have been surgically placed into your jawbone. This provides stability that ends embarrassing slipping and allows you to eat the foods you love. Even patients with some bone loss may be able to benefit from implant supported dentures.
Dental implants in Rocklin, CA, can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth, or to secure a full denture. Their versatility has made them the replacement of choice for our patients with missing teeth.
Surgical Advances in Dental Implants
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Slate is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Some dental implants are placed by a specialist that Dr. Slate would refer you to. Either an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist. In these more complex cases, Dr. Slate and the specialist work as a team to coordinate treatment.

I recently left my former dentist to come to Pure Dentistry. My initial visit was great! Friendly staff, everyone was very thorough in their explanations of the processes and dental procedures I would be going through on my first visit. I am very happy that I was recommended to Pure Dentistry and I would recommend my friends and family here as well.

I just want to spill my heart with the amount of appreciation I have for the whole team at Pure Dentistry. I was so reluctant, nervous, scared, and terrified to find a new dentist again (we recently moved) I had put off seeing a dentist for much longer than I should of, due to my fear of having work done on my teeth. I was terribly overdue with dental visits and knew I needed a lot of work done. The initial phone call was terrifying to make, but Candice was able to talk me through my fears, and tears, set me up with an appointment and from there on it's been blessing after blessing. Dr. Slate explained specifically what needed to be done, his staff was supportive and friendly, and now I look forward to my visits. I've NEVER been able to say that. Thank you!!!!

Truly, I would not be going to a dentist if it weren't for Dr. Slate and his wonderful staff. I've never experienced any pain during my procedures, though I am always expecting to (former dental experiences). He thoroughly explains what he is doing and gently talks during my procedures, making sure I am doing fine. The results are always beyond what I was expecting. Dr. Slate is the reason that I go to the dentist now, and never miss a cleaning. I believe he is a gifted dentist and highly conscientious. Truly - I am grateful to be one of his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Slate.

I hate going to the dentist. When I was a kid, my dad's buddy would see me after their three martini lunches. "God dammit, hold still". After two visits with Pure Dentistry, I am ready to go back for more. My anxiety is mostly gone; I almost fell asleep in the chair. I may let them replace this temporary crown without my wife threatening me with ... No drama or stress, just results. It was almost like having my shoes shined. Hunter L.
