Dental implants are the #1 recommended (by dentists and patients) tooth replacement solution, and we’re pleased to place them at Arizona Associates in Dentistry. Whether you’re missing one tooth or multiple teeth, implants are an ideal restorative treatment because of their durability, natural appearance, and superior ability to keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
Dental implants are small screws that are surgically placed into your jawbone to mimic your tooth roots. These posts are made of biocompatible materials, and they can support a crown (or multiple crowns), a bridge, or full denture.
The process of implant dentistry may take a few months depending on your case. Multiple implants can be placed at once, but the implant does need time to heal and fuse with your jawbone. You may have temporary crowns installed during the healing period, so your ability to eat, speak, and smile won’t be impeded. After the implants have successfully healed, an abutment will be placed on the implant, which will serve as the base for your new tooth.
Once the process is complete, it may take a while for you to get used to your new smile. Eventually they should feel natural, look beautiful, and best of all – last you a lifetime. The way to ensure this result is by caring for them with great oral hygiene habits.
