Dental Implants in Phoenix

Missing teeth can affect your life in many ways. Not only can it keep you worried about your smile and prevent you from wanting to spend time with your friends and family, it can also affect your chewing and speaking.

Fortunately dental Implant technology has advanced considerably over the years, making tooth replacement a modern marvel that’s worth grinning about. In the past, the only real solution was dentures which often looked unnatural and required complicated care. Now a safe and modern solution exists to help you smile - dental implants.

Our cosmetic dentist at 24th Street Dental Biltmore understands there are many options for dental implants in Phoenix, and we take great care to carefully tailor a treatment plan, giving your smile the strength and confidence it needs.

What to expect.

As dental implants are much stronger and longer lasting than bridges and dentures, the first thing your dentist will do is an examination to determine whether or not your jawbone is healthy enough to accept the implant post.

If your jawbone is weak, a bone graft can be used to strengthen it up. Once the procedure is done the bone will strengthen over a few months, and once complete your dentist can begin the dental implant procedure. A large portion of the waiting period is simply allowing your mouth and bones to heal.

Once fully healed, your dental implants provide a permanent solution to a beautiful smile which will last for decades to come. With good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups your dental implants should last a lifetime as opposed to traditional fixed bridges which can last 10-15 years.

Are dental implants made of titanium?

Here is some insight into your dental implants in Phoenix:

  1. The post that holds your new tooth into the jawbone is made of titanium. The realistic (but false) tooth placed on top is actually made from a strong ceramic.
  2. Once the dental implant is placed in your jawbone it will then bond with your natural bone, thus creating a sturdy support for your new tooth. Dental implants don’t happen overnight, and it all starts with a consultation with your dentist.
  3. Total amount of treatment time varies by patient, but a consultation with your dentist in Phoenix will help give a time frame.

Do I have to wear a temporary tooth during those months?

It all depends on what you’re comfortable with. Some patients prefer to leave the tooth space empty, while others insist on a temporary denture until they’re ready for the permanent implant.

During your initial exam and consultation your dentist will go over options with you to determine what works best for you.

How long do the best dental implants in Phoenix take to heal?

Since every case is different, we’re unable to give you an exact timeframe, but with any surgery there’s always an adjustment period. We recommend taking it easy for the first 24-48 hours following your procedure, and our patients report mild to moderate pain; this is to be expected but not feared: over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs can help soothe any inflammation that may occur.

Post Precedure Tips

For the first week you’ll want to stick with softer foods, and it’s a good idea to avoid drinking straws and/or hot beverages until you’ve sufficiently healed. It’s also extremely important to avoid smoking or drinking alcohol this week, as both activities can lead to infection.

Whether you’re missing teeth due to an accident, lifestyle, or frustrating genetics, there are options for tooth replacement that far surpass the dentures of yesteryear. This being said, always continue to practice good oral hygiene to help keep those teeth and gums strong and germ-free.
