We have an array of implant techniques and options, and our approach to dentistry presents great value. So, there is sure to be a way to replace a missing tooth or a mouthful of teeth with cutting-edge systems like implants.

Dental implants 

Implants are designed to function like tooth roots. Before implants, patients’ options to replace their teeth were limited to conventional bridges, partial dentures, and complete dentures. Replacement teeth in a bridge rely on neighboring crowned teeth. These teeth act like anchors to hold the replacements (pontics) in place. Partial dentures (“partials”) are false teeth and gum tissue connected to remaining healthy teeth with special attachments. Full dentures were stabilized in the mouth with products like denture adhesive or natural suction. 

Implants are designed like natural, unaltered, healthy teeth. Each implant stabilized in the jawbone “roots” the replacement teeth in the mouth. Implant-retained crowns, bridges, and dentures are not going anywhere! Patients appreciate the stability, comfort, and natural function that they get from implants.

The process

Our dentists’ advanced training and capabilities mean that every step of the implants process can be handled right here – at the office that you know and
trust – My Dental and Implants. Other dental practices in and around Sun City, Surprise, Peoria, Cave Creek, and metro Phoenix may market implants. But they cannot actually place them. They only have the technical competency and technologies to restore or connect the implant to the crown, bridge, or denture. The surgical placement is referred to a specialist, which adds to the costs, stress, headaches, and time associated with getting your new teeth. 

We have made it easy to complete your smile affordably and in no time. Implants are precisely positioned in the jawbone during an inpatient procedure. This procedure is well tolerated, but we can discuss ways to ensure you remain comfortable and relaxed throughout. Once the implant is placed, it will start to heal or join the surrounding bone. After it has healed, we can attach the part of the tooth visible in your smile. We even have options such as mini implants for patients who have experienced bone loss! 

Implant-supported teeth mimic the structure, appearance, and function of naturally healthy teeth. They are long-lasting and prevent or stop the effects of bone loss. They keep your jawbone strong! Call (623) 526-2330 to schedule an appointment at My Dental and Implants in Glendale, Arizona.

We look forward to answering your questions and providing more info about options to restore the comfort, appearance, function, and health of your smile.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.


FAQs

What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are made of titanium, proven safe for the body.

Do I get the implant crown right away?

After a dental implant is placed, it generally takes four to six months for it to integrate with your existing bone and be ready for the abutment and crown placement.

How many parts are dental implants?

Dental implants are made of three parts: the implant itself, which acts as the root of the tooth; an abutment, which connects the implant to the crown; and lastly, the crown, which is attached to the implant via an abutment.

What is the advantage of dental implants over dental bridges?

Dental implants are not connected to any other teeth. Single dental implants are similar to your natural tooth, and if something goes wrong with it, you don’t need to worry about adjacent teeth. However, if you have a dental bridge, the missing area is connected to adjacent teeth. There are benefits to both in unique situations. However, dental implants, in general, are superior in their strength and life span.

How much do dental implants cost?

There is a variation in the cost of dental implants. There are factors that play a role in each individual’s treatment plan. These include whether bone grafting or sinus augmentation is needed and factors depending on insurance. Generally, the dental implant cost varies from $1500 to $4900, depending on these factors.

What is dental implant maintenance?

Dental implants require regular home care, flossing at least three times a week, and brushing your teeth twice daily. Also, depending on the patient, in some cases, professional dental cleaning is needed every three to four months rather than every six months for patients with more than one dental implant.
