How dental implants from Tempe, Phoenix and Scottsdale can improve your smile
People consider dental implants for many reasons. You probably already know that they are the newest, most innovative way to replace one or more missing teeth. Dental implants have replaced old-school dental bridgework, removable partials and dentures and have become the best, most natural-looking long term tooth replacement available. Your dentists at Waterfront Dentistry in Tempe, Phoenix and Scottsdale, AZ want to help you explore why you owe it to yourself to consider dental implants.
Dental implants are highly successful because they are made out of titanium, a strong metal which is also biocompatible. That means the dental implant won’t irritate your bone and soft tissue. Your body won’t reject the dental implant. In fact, according to the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, dental implants boast a success rate of over 95 percent!
A high success rate isn’t the only reason you should consider dental implants. Your dentists in Tempe, Phoenix and Scottsdale want you to think about the fact that dental implants are:
- Naturally beautiful--because they are virtually indistinguishable from your existing teeth
- Incredibly convenient--because you don’t ever take them out; they are a permanent addition to your smile.
- Completely stable--because they are embedded in the bone of your jaw; they don’t move around like partials or dentures.
Dental implants can also help you retain the youthful contours of your face and your firm jawline. That’s because after a dental implant is placed, your body will begin to produce more bone to fuse around the dental implant. This extra bone will secure the implant and provide your face with increased structure and volume.
Your dental implant treatment begins with an appointment with your dentists. Using a simple procedure, they will place the implant in your jaw. During the healing period, you will produce more bone, locking the implant in place. After the implant is secure, they will create a custom dental crown to cap the implant. In some cases, the crown can be placed at the same time as the implant.
