Dental Implant Teeth Replacement at TruSmile Dental in Arizona
Missing or damaged teeth is a problem. Not only are there the inherent aesthetic issues that come with a gap in your smile, not having a tooth can also open the door for infection or other oral health issues. That is why it is imperative to replace missing or damaged teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are a simple and straightforward method to complete your smile.

What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root used to anchor a crown. The implant is typically made of titanium, which is compatible with jawbone tissue. A dental implant provides the stimulation your jawbone needs to stay healthy and avoid further deterioration. Our doctors will then place a crown on top to give you the appearance of a natural tooth.

The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

Who is a Candidate?
Have you recently lost a tooth? To be a candidate for dental implant surgery, you need enough bone in your jaw to support an implant. The ideal candidate is a non-smoker with healthy gums. Keep in mind that just because you don’t fit the image of the “perfect” candidate doesn’t mean that our dental implant dentist can’t help you.  For example, many people are able to restore their smiles with dental implants, which don’t require as much jawbone tissue as their full-sized counterparts.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Improved Appearance – Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved Speech – With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
  • Improved Comfort – Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier Eating – Sliding dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
  • Improved Self-Esteem – Dental implants can give you back your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
  • Improved Oral Health – Dental implants don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Durability – Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
  • Convenience – Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures; as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.
