If you have missing teeth, you may wish to consider a dental implant from Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry located in Scottsdale Arizona.
Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry is a full service dental office that places and restores dental implants. Whether you’re missing tooth is the result of periodontitis, tooth decay or an injury, Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry can help restore your smile with a beautiful new dental implant that looks and functions just like a real tooth.
Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw which, over the course of several months, naturally bonds with your mouth. This procedure is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases, so there’s no need to put off restoring that great smile. Implants don’t involve the adjacent teeth and therefore are a more conservative option for replacing missing teeth.
As with all of our dental services, you’ll be treated with the nurturing care and professionalism that embodies Arizona Center for Laser Dentistry’s practice. We’ll make sure that you’re kept comfortable and informed throughout the implant process and will always be available to address any questions or concerns.
Even when only one tooth is missing, long term esthetics are usually much better with a dental implant
supported replacement tooth than with the old traditional tooth supported bridge.
There are many advantages to having dental implants, including:
If you are having problems, dental implants could be the best way to replace your missing teeth.
If you are having problems with your dentures replacing them with dental implants could be the best way to go. While many people still wear dentures without discomfort, dental implants are now considered to be the preferred treatment for replacing teeth. A study done for Washington Dental Service, the largest insurance carrier in Washington State, found that over a five-year period the maintenance costs for people with bridges were higher than for those who had dental implants. Dental Implants are better for your long term health, they will protect your bones for many, many years.
A patient would need a minimum of 2 appointments to complete an implant.
The first appointment would be for the placement of the dental implant. The second appointment would come months later. The time it takes for an implant to become integrated (become solidified in bone) can depend on the location and the patient’s healing time. In the top jaw the normal integration time is approximately 4 months and for the bottom jaw the normal time is 3 months.
At this second appointment, an x-ray would be taken to verify the implant has integrated in the bone and for placement of a healing abutment (the part of the treatment that will help define your gums and make your crown look natural).
The final appointment (which in many cases can be combined with the 2nd appointment) is the making and placement of crown.
With today’s technology and a properly equipped office, like the Arizona Canter for Laser Dentistry, you can have an implant crown made in one day with CEREC One Day all porcelain crowns.
