Treatment Planning

Tehachapi dentist, Jose David Sanchez, D.D.S. will evaluate your case from the clinical history, analysis of the oral scenario and with additional examinations deemed necessary. It is important to evaluate each case to find the best solution.

In your visit we will take a 3D CT scan and create a model of your existing teeth to determine the optimal implant position. In some cases, a bone or gum tissue graft will be necessary to create adequate space for the implants.

Implant Placement

At your next scheduled appointment, Dr. Sanchez will place the dental implant in your jawbone where your tooth is missing. Although each patient’s experience is unique, most people find they experience less pain and discomfort than they expect, and typically return to work the next day. IV sedation will be used to keep you comfortable. Post-implant surgery discomfort is similar to that of any other dental surgery. It may include swelling, bruising, minor bleeding and/or pain, but most patients usually manage any pain with over-the-counter medications.

A Word From Our Patients

What Our Clients Say

Dr Sanchez extracted my wisdom teeth. Even though I was nervous as heck he was very helpful and gentle. Thank you! I couldn’t be any happier with his job. Definitely recommending him!!


Everyone is so nice there. I had dentures that didn’t fit right (made by a different dentist in town) and we went over possibilities that I couldn’t get with the other dentist. I wish I had come here sooner !!!


I have had several teeth worked on by Dr. Sanchez over the span of 20 years and he has worked wonders on my mouth. I will continue to see Dr. Sanchez for my dental needs. I think he is very knowledgeable and does great work. Totally satisfied.
