Go Back In Time

Dental health Dental Implants

cosmetic dental and implants Phoenix

So you’ve lost some teeth and hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and regain that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from Harris Dental in Phoenix, you can!

For most patients a dental implant is the ideal replacement for a missing tooth, because it replaces both the root and crown. They feel so authentic that implant recipients forget that they ever lost a tooth in the first place.

A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A supporting device (called an abutment) and crown are firmly attached to the post.

Dental implants are versatile. A single implant can support one artificial tooth, and multiple implants can support a set of dentures.

Dental implants are available here at Harris Dental in Phoenix. We also offer a full range of general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment with us today!

Missing Teeth? Don’t Miss Out On A Beautiful Smile

Dental health Dental Implants Dentures

Phoenix cosmetic dentistry

If you have missing spaces in your smile due to cavities, injury or any other reason, there is hope. If your existing teeth are stained, decayed, or broken, there is hope. If your teeth have always been misshapen, or crooked, there is hope. Cosmetic dentistry at Harris Dental in Phoenix can address all of those problems.

Regardless of the issue, it is usually preferable to save your natural teeth. If this is not feasible, and you have already lost teeth, we offer multiple ways for you to keep (or regain) your ability to eat, drink, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence.

Dental Implant
A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single implant can support a single replacement tooth, while multiple immplants can support a dental arch.

Dentures
Traditional dentures consist of  a plate holding artificial teeth that can be removed for cleaning. As noted above, dental implants can support dentures. We provide All on 4 dentures, a modern alternative to the traditional style.

Porcelain Veneers
If you still have your teeth, but are not comfortable with them, these might be the best answer. Stunning porcelain veneers are thin shells bonded to the front of the teeth. They improve unsightly, but structurally sound teeth.

There is no need to miss out on a gorgeous smile. To find out more about dental implants or porcelain veneers, call Harris Dental to schedule an appointment today.

Change Your Life In 4 Steps

Dental Implants Dentures Restorative Dentistry

cosmetic dental and implants At Harris Dental in Phoenix, we are always reminding our patients to brush and floss their teeth. It’s the best way to ensure healthy teeth and gums. But we know that in spite of everyone’s best efforts, some of our patients are going to lose one or more of their tooth. When that happens, we recommend dental implants as the best solution.

A single implant can support one artificial tooth. Several can support a set of dentures.

Even if you have had dentures for many years, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are an immensely versatile custom substitute for dentures.

Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor over dentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow your dentist to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are implanted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a heavy-duty base for an over denture.

Here is the process:

1. Examination and Assessment
During your first visit, we will take x-rays and analyze your mouth and the condition of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. We will review options with you and together you will create a treatment plan.

2. Implant Placement
A complete tooth implant and restoration consists of the actual implant, an abutment, and final restoration. The first step is to insert the titanium alloy implant into your jawbone. This is not as difficult or painful as it sounds. Most patients are surprised at how fast and easy the procedure is.

3. Integration
Implant surgery would not be successful if your jawbone did not welcome an artificial and non-biological tooth root. Amazingly, in the vast majority of cases, the jawbone fuses with the implant to make a solid foundation for the final restoration.

4. Final Restoration
Whether your final step is a crown, bridge, or denture, we will work with the lab to construct a beautiful and functional restoration. A connecting piece called an abutment attaches the restoration to the artificial root(s). The crown, bridge, or denture is all that is visible at the end of the process. Dental implant restorations are practically indistinguishable from original teeth.

At Harris Dental in Phoenix, dental implants are among the restorative dentistry procedures we offer. Make an appointment today.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental health Dental Implants

Looking into how much dental implants cost and getting a straightforward answer can be frustrating. But there is a reason for that, and at Harris Dental in Phoenix, we’d like to explain it.

It can be confusing to research the cost of getting a dental implant and finding nothing solid on the web. There are good reasons why most dental sites don’t publish the cost of tooth implants.

1. The Math Might Come Out Higher Than it Should
The number of teeth being replaced may be more than the number of implants needed to cover that section of the mouth. Tooth implant dentists want to offer accurate pricing rather than scare you away with higher estimates. It takes a simple consultation to review dental history, assess needs and create a treatment plan. This could mean a more efficient surgery with fewer implants.

2. There Might Be Something Better For Your Mouth
While dental implants really are the state of the art in tooth replacement, much better than a bridge or denture, sometimes the procedure won’t be what you thought it was going to be, or maybe you aren’t a good candidate for the process.

3. Supply Costs and Lab Costs Change

A ballpark number might be possible to post on the internet but the changing cost of supplies and lab fees make it impossible to guarantee an exact price for full mouth dental implants. Dentists who offer implants can correctly calculate dental implant surgery rates based on current prices when you come in for a consultation.

Nevertheless, dental implants remain the best way to replace a missing tooth, because they look and function like natural teeth. One implant can support one tooth, and several implants can support a set of dentures. At Harris Dental in Phoenix we also offer general dentistry. Call us for an appointment today.
