What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a natural-looking, long-lasting tooth replacement option. They can be used to replace one or more missing or damaged teeth. Implants are a highly prized solution because they promote healthy gums and jawbone, improve dental function, and can last a lifetime.
A dental implant is made up of three parts:
Titanium post: A medical-grade titanium post that's placed into the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth's socket. The post acts as the root structure and offers a stable base for the prosthetic.
A connecting abutment: This component connects your replacement tooth or teeth to the dental implant.
The dental prosthetic: The restoration replaces the visible part of the missing teeth. It can be a crown, bridge, or partial or complete denture.
Our dental implant specialist will place the titanium post into the jaw bone, where it will fuse naturally with surrounding bone and tissue. This process is known as osseointegration and helps create a healthy and secure foundation for the dental prosthetic. Once bonding is complete, our dentist will attach the abutment and prosthetic teeth that have the appearance and functionality of natural teeth.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Since they replace every part of a missing tooth, dental implants provide numerous advantages over other replacement options. Dental implants are permanently fixed and stable enough to restore chewing and biting power. Moreover, implants don't rely on healthy adjacent teeth to support the restoration.
You can expect your dental implants to:
- Mimic the look and function of natural teeth
- Stop jawbone weakening or recession
- Restore complete bite force
- Promote proper digestion
- Preserve facial features
- Prevent natural teeth from shifting
- Renew appearance and self-confidence
- Offer a permanent solution to missing teeth
Our Implant-Supported Restorations
Dental implants support different types of prosthetic teeth to revitalize your smile. Each restoration is designed to blend seamlessly within your smile and withstand years of use. At Beautiful Smiles of Arizona, we offer a variety of implant-supported restorations, including:
Crowns: If you're missing a single tooth, a beautiful implant-supported crown can be a good replacement option.
Bridges: An implant bridge uses two or more dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth in a row. It's similar to a traditional bridge but does not require surrounding teeth to be altered.
Partial dentures: These replace multiple teeth in the upper or lower jaw. Partial dentures are customized to your specific needs and can fit any configuration of missing teeth.
Full or complete dentures: These implant dentures are custom-made to replace all teeth in an entire upper or lower arch. They use 6-8 implants for stability and are fixed into place for easy eating, speaking, and smiling. We also offer All-on-4® dental implants for those who qualify, which use just four implants to replace the upper or lower set of teeth.
To determine which implant-supported restoration is right for you, we will discuss your concerns and goals and conduct a thorough exam to determine the health of your gums and any remaining teeth.
We also discuss your overall health history and the medications you're currently taking to help us determine if you're an ideal candidate for dental implants. Based on your unique situation and needs, we will recommend the best course of action and create the safest and most effective treatment. We use panoramic x-rays and digital imagery to map out where your implants should go.
Pretreatments to Enhance Your Chances of Success
You're likely an ideal candidate for dental implants if you are in good oral and general health. However, successful treatment requires a strong, dense jawbone and healthy gums. Our dentist can provide a number of preliminary treatments to promote successful dental implant placement.
Extractions: While we strive to preserve your natural teeth whenever possible, we may recommend extraction if you have one or several teeth that are severely decayed, infected, or damaged. We provide gentle extractions to prepare your smile for implant placement and preserve your long-term oral health.
Bone Grafts: We recommend a bone graft if your jawbone is too thin or too weak to support the implant. If there isn't healthy bone, the titanium post won't successfully bond and can become unstable after placement. Our dental implant dentist will transplant a small amount of bone to your jaw to increase its volume and density.
