What are dental implants
Simply, dental implants are titanium posts with a false tooth (or teeth) attached on top. They are embedded into the patient’s jawbone in order to create a strong, long-lasting replacement for missing teeth.
An individual crown, bridge, or denture can then be cemented to the portion of the post which protrudes above the gum line. Among the other alternatives to replace missing teeth, dental implants offer the most stability and long-term results.Learn More
How dental implants work
During your dental implant consultation in our office, Dr. Abdul R. Alas will put together a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure the best results for your treatment. The dental implant procedure is a three-part process:
1 Placing the implant
The dental implant, usually a cylindrical and/or tapered post made of titanium, is surgically placed into the jawbone.
2 Installing the abutment
Once the implant is settled in, your surgeon will then install a post known as an abutment into the implant.
Finally, a prosthetic tooth will be created and attached to the implants to restore natural functionality and aesthetics.

Faster recovery for dental implants than most offices
FDA cleared advanced technology that accelerates healing for dental implants
Dr. Alas are one of the only dental offices in Bakersfield utilizing state-of-the-art equipment capable of accelerating the healing period for dental implants. The Interspin system by Intra-Lock is the only medical device approved by the FDA to produce leukocyte and platelet rich fibrin (L-PRF). This dramatically reduces the requirements necessary for patients to become candidates for dental implants.
Candidates for dental implants
Almost anyone who has lost a tooth, several teeth, or even all of his teeth is a prime candidate for dental implants. Obviously, each patient has specific needs. At the offices of Dr. Alas, we thoroughly evaluate each candidate to determine the most appropriate plan of dental treatment. We will assess each patient’s specific dental conditions and determine the treatment approach that would provide the best long-term functional and aesthetic result.
Implant dentistry candidates will need to have healthy gums and adequate bone in order to support the restoration. A full evaluation by our Bakersfield implant dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. For more information, schedule an appointment today.
All-On-4 Dental Implants in Bakersfield
Minimally invasive dental implants, faster dental implant treatment, and lower costs
Instant improvements in your quality of life
In addition to traditional dental implants, Dr. Abdul R. Alas also offers All-on-4® dental implants in Bakersfield. The All-on-4® treatment provide patients missing teeth and soon-to-be edentulous patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis/denture on four implants on the day of surgery. This improves patient satisfaction – with regards to functionality, appearance, sense, speech, and self-confidence.
Shorter and faster treatment times
The 2 elements that drastically reduce the complexity of treatment are; the number of surgeries needed, and the treatment time: strategically tilting the posterior dental implants avoids the need for time consuming bone grafts, while immediate loading shortens the time to teeth.
The All-on-4® concept takes has the fastest treatment times with dental implants, and is also much more affordable in comparison to conventional dental implants. This is especially true for edentulous patients in need of a full mouth reconstruction in Bakersfield, CA.
Stability with minimal bone volume
By strategically positioning the two posterior implants, Dr. Abdul R. Alas can use longer implants. This not only increases bone-to-implant contact, but also avoids vertical bone augmentation. It is common for complications to occur with vertical augmentation. In addition, the tilted implants can be anchored in better quality of the anterior bone (front of the mouth), reduce cantilevers and help avoid important structures of the mouth.
