Think A Missing Back Tooth Is No Big Deal?

Dental health Dental Implants General Dentistry

Most people are embarrassed by having a missing tooth in the front of the mouth. It may not be fair, but a gaping hole would have negative connotations for just about anyone. We can address that issue with a dental implant, at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

But what about a missing molar? Someone who loses a back tooth, it seems, is more likely to leave the gap. “You can’t really see it when I smile, right?” “I have another molar back there, I can chew with that one.” If the tooth had been hurting, sometimes they are so relieved that the pain is gone, they consider an extraction the final answer.

Bone Recession

Since we can’t see the bone that anchors our tooth roots, we may not consider its condition. The health of a jawbone plays an essential role in overall oral health.

When a tooth is extracted, the bone at the extraction site begins to shrink and recede. A dental implant prevents that: it replaces the tooth root and maintains the health of the bone.

A dental implant is a titanium post that gets inserted into the jaw. One implant can support an artificial tooth, and several of them can support a dental bridge, or even a full dental arch (denture).

The implant not only supports a replacement tooth and prevents bone recession. It also helps neighboring teeth from shifting and rotating.

Replace A Missing Tooth With A Durable Dental Implant

Dental health Dental Implants Dentures

Phoenix dental implants

Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the field of dentistry, and with good reason. Implants are an artificial tooth root that is inserted in the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. One implant can support an artificial tooth; multiple implants can anchor a set of dentures. Dental implants are available at Harris Dental in Phoenix.

Dental implants have been hailed as one of the great advances in the field of dentistry, and with good reason. An implant-supported tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth. Implants are made of titanium, which fuses with the bone. In addition to providing a solid base for the artificial tooth, it helps to prevent bone recession.

When they are properly cared for, dental implants can last for twenty-five years or longer, and have a success rate of greater than ninety percent.. Those are additional reasons why they have become the tooth replacement option of choice.

Dental implants are among the restorative dentistry procedures available at Harris Dental in Phoenix. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.

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.
