What are dental implants?
The use of dental implants in Phoenix AZ as a dental restoration procedure for missing teeth is becoming the treatment of choice among patients of CenterCare Dental Group. Dental implants are preferred by our patients for permanent replacement of missing teeth because they provide the most natural appearance and greatest longevity.
Dental implants are placed surgically into the jaw and function like tooth roots. Crowns are placed on implants just like on teeth. Our Phoenix patients find them convenient, durable and realistic.
Dental implants are very stable anchors for single or multiple missing teeth because they are permanently embedded into the jawbone, just like teeth are. Dental implants are made from surgical-grade titanium, a very biocompatible material. Our Phoenix patients experience few side effects from either the procedure or the material. It is the clear choice when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Phoenix patients realize this benefit and are increasingly choosing dental implants over other replacement procedures.
What is the dental implant procedure like for patients in Phoenix?
Dental implants are not for everyone and some conditions will apply. Our dental team at CenterCare Dental Group in Phoenix will determine first if a patient’s dental condition is appropriate for dental implants. Tools like dental x-rays and CT scans are used in our in downtown Phoenix office to determine whether there is sufficient bone mass and supporting tissues to support the implant.
In our downtown Phoenix office, the implant placement is done under a local anesthetic. Sedation is also available. An incision is made to access the area where the missing tooth was. The titanium implant is placed in the underlying bone by our surgical team. Healing time is needed to allow the dental implant to stabilize within the bone, ensuring that chewing forces can safely be absorbed later.
When the area is completely healed and the dental implant is stable, the crown, bridge or denture is attached and the tooth replacement is complete.
What should patients in Phoenix expect after getting dental implants?
The success rate of dental implants in our downtown Phoenix location is very high at 95%. The success of these dental implants depends largely on the patient’s healing capabilities. Careful evaluation of a patient’s condition prior to surgery keeps our success rate high. Once in place, your dental implants are cared for like any other tooth. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits keep our Phoenix patients enjoying the use of their dental implants for a lifetime.
