Are you tired of hiding your smile because of missing teeth? Do you long for the confidence to laugh, eat, and speak without reservation? Look no further - dental implants are here to save the day! Whether you've lost a tooth due to injury or decay, dental implants in Ahwatukee offer a permanent solution that looks, feels, and functions just like natural teeth.
Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, such as dentures or bridges, dental implants are designed to mimic the natural structure of your teeth. Made up of three key components – the implant itself, an abutment, and a crown – dental implants provide a sturdy foundation for your new tooth. The implant is made of titanium and is surgically placed into the jawbone.
The process of getting dental implants is a multi-step procedure that requires careful planning and precision. It begins with a thorough examination of the patient's oral health and an assessment of their suitability for implant placement. First, any existing damaged or decayed teeth will need to be extracted before the implant procedure can begin. This ensures a clean slate for the implants to be placed securely in the jawbone. In some cases, bone grafting may also be necessary if there is not enough natural bone present to support the implants.
Once the extraction and any necessary bone grafting are complete, the next step is to surgically place titanium posts into the jawbone. These posts act as artificial tooth roots and provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth. After the surgical placement of the implant posts, there is a healing period called osseointegration, where they fuse with the surrounding jawbone. This typically takes several months but ensures that once prosthetic teeth are attached, they will function just like natural teeth. Custom-made crowns or bridges are created based on impressions taken of your remaining natural teeth. These prosthetic teeth are then attached to abutments, which connect them securely to the implanted posts.
