Dental Implants

Dental Implants 

An implant for a tooth consists of a sturdy titanium cylinder surgically inserted into either the upper or lower jawbone. Over time, the implant will meld with the jawbone, seamlessly integrating into your body. Dental implants offer versatility, as they can be enhanced with dental crowns, dentures, or dental bridges.

Functioning akin to natural teeth with genuine roots, dental implants play a vital role in maintaining jawbone strength and structure. They effectively stimulate the jawbone, preventing deterioration and collapse. Each tooth implant is capable of withstanding the full biting force and chewing capacity of a natural tooth.

What are dental implants used for?

  • For Individual Tooth Replacement: Dr. Kim strategically places tooth implants in the location of your natural tooth roots, providing a stable base for the attachment of a flawless dental crown.
  • For Multiple Tooth Replacement: In cases of multiple missing teeth or extensive dental restoration needs, we may recommend the placement of several dental implants to support multiple dental crowns, effectively restoring your smile's functionality and aesthetics.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: Additionally, we offer implant-supported dentures, where dental implants act as secure anchors for your dentures. These dentures offer significant advantages, such as reduced concerns about the upkeep and inconvenience associated with traditional dentures. Patients who opt for tooth implant-supported dentures enjoy the freedom to eat their favorite foods without fretting about denture stability.

How can I benefit from Dental Implants?

The majority of individuals in good health are suitable candidates for dental implants. To learn more about your eligibility, Dr. Kim can provide further details following an initial screening and thorough implant evaluation process.

Choosing the right dentist for dental implant procedures

In the field of implant dentistry, practitioners are often categorized into two groups: those who perform the surgical placement of implants and those who handle the restoration of existing dental implants, such as with crowns, bridges, or dentures.

At Sierra Oaks Dental Group, we offer comprehensive services encompassing both the placement and restoration of implants. In more complex cases, we may collaborate with a skilled oral surgeon for the implant placement procedure, but Dr. Kim will always oversee the restoration process.

With Dr. Kim's keen artistic vision, we specialize in crafting beautiful new smiles using dental implants. If you're seeking dental implant solutions in Sacramento, Dr. Kim is ready to assist you on your journey to a revitalized smile!


"Love Sierra Oaks Dental and especially Dr. Kim who has worked miracles for me. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the office always clean and comfortable. The examination rooms also have a few surprising perks to help relieve the stress. Dr. Kim is very pleasant and knowledgeable. He will explain all options, make suggestions but ultimately let the patient decide. I have family members who see him and have similar things to say. I recommend this practice whenever someone asks."

"I have been going to Sierra Oaks Dental for a few years now. I appreciate the friendly front staff. They make scheduling easy and always greet me with a smile. Very rarely do I have to wait.
Dr. Kim and his colleagues are excellent.
Just today I had an appointment with a new doctor, Dr. Z. He was a great communicator, very patient and calm. He explained the process clearly and made the experience almost enjoyable ! 😁.
Thank you for caring and taking good care of my teeth."

"Love this place. The office is clean and new + their staff is nice and professional. They truly take the time to hand pick great dental hygienists because they are gentle and patient. Anyways, if you're thinking about going here just go in person and see for yourself. Half the battle is being comfortable and this place caters to that perfectly. Thanks y'all"

"I've had nothing but great experiences at Sierra Oaks Dental. As someone who grew up without health insurance or the best dental care, I've always had a fear of the dentist even into my adult years. Dr. Kim has not once made me feel judged or out of place. He's done everything to make me more comfortable in my dental health journey, and the office has worked with me on what I could afford and when I could too. While I'll be moving out of state myself, I could not recommend Peter Kim more to anyone looking for a respectable professional."
