When our patients ask us about tooth restoration, we usually tell them about the important developments in dental implants.
Tooth replacement has been a highly requested procedure at our Phoenix dental practice. Patients from the greater Phoenix area including Glendale, Tempe and Mesa have expressed concern about tooth replacement for many years. Most of the questions have to do with the strength of the tooth replacement, and durability.
Dental implants have become a popular choice for many of our Phoenix tooth replacement patients, even above dental bridges. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.
After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (dental crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields terrific results for Phoenix dental implants patients. Our Arizona cosmetic dentistry patients appreciate the fact that we stay up to date on the latest advancements in tooth replacement procedures.
This smile restoration option preserves or restores facial contour and allows you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, too. Tooth implants can replace one or more missing teeth. Many Phoenix area dental patients have been treated successfully with this tooth restoration procedure.
