In dentistry today, there are many solutions out there to replace teeth. However, only dental implants take it to a new standard. The reason? Dental implants are the only option that replace the root, ensuring longevity and function you won’t find with other treatments. When you want a reliable tooth replacement, the dentists at Dental Innovations are happy to perform the whole process for restoration with dental implants in our Mesa, AZ dental office! This is sure to make your appointment more convenient and comfortable.
Dental implants are dental restorations designed to replace teeth in the most comprehensive way possible. This includes replacing the root portion as well as the crown, which is not the case for other methods. For example, dental implants involves surgical treatment so the implant can fuse with bone and gum tissue. The tooth root is replaced with titanium material, which thanks to its biocompatibility can bond safely with the jaw bone. Then, the crown is attached on top. This titanium root is more than strong enough to offer a solid foundation for the restoration, making chewing and oral care feel indistinguishable from natural teeth.
With dental implants, there’s no need to worry about your replacement teeth shifting out of place when you use it. Chewing the foods you love, brushing and flossing to keep plaque at bay, and keeping your smile and face’s appearance the same are all possible with dental implants. As long as you practice daily oral care and visit our dental office for exams and cleanings, you can expect your dental implants to last 30 years and even longer! This should give you confidence in their day-to-day use.
Dental implants can last a very long time and look exactly like real teeth, but they are also ideal for many unique situations. For example, you can use them to replace single teeth or all the teeth in your arch!
Looking for a natural-looking and cost-effective solution for replacing single teeth? Dental implants offer both of these benefits and do not require modifying existing teeth just to place. Once the implant has integrated enough with the bone, a temporary crown can be placed before a permanent restoration is fabricated.
When a single tooth or multiple consecutive teeth are lost, a single or pair of implant posts can be placed in order to hold a dedicated bridge. This means that adjacent teeth do not have to be modified like traditional bridges require. If there is sufficient bone density available, a temporary bridge can be placed beforehand.
Does your denture no longer fit like it used to? Tired of it shifting out of place? Using dental implants to keep it secure may be the perfect solution. We can place multiple implants throughout the jaw, then attach your permanent top or bottom arch after the implants have healed. Furthermore, a dedicated implant for each tooth replaced is not necessary.
Traditionally, dental implants require sufficient healing time before a restoration can be placed on top of them. However, All-on-4 allows us to not only place a denture onto dental implants the same day the implants are placed, but do so with only four dental implants along the way.
The cost of your dental implant treatment is largely dependent on your specific needs. Replacing a single tooth with dental implants costs far less than replacing multiple teeth or all the teeth in a given arch with a series of dental implants. The type of restoration and specific preparatory treatments (i.e. gum therapy and bone grafts) can also dramatically influence your final price tag. However, the long-term costs are generally lower than dental bridges and dentures because they do not require nearly as much repair or replacement as dental implants.
