The Process of Placing Dental Implants

At Arcadia Dental Arts of Phoenix, AZ, we are pleased to provide restorative procedures that can help you look, feel, and function at your best. Individuals faced with tooth loss will have a number of options available to them for restoring their smile. One treatment option that is extremely popular is that of dental implants. These titanium posts are used to replace one or more teeth and provide versatile restoration.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant essentially acts as an artificial tooth root, providing a stable foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth. The implants themselves are small titanium posts that fuse with the natural jawbone during a process called osseointegration. This fusion allows the implant to provide support just like a natural tooth root would.

Why choose dental implants?

Dental implants offer numerous benefits over other restorative options, such as dentures or bridges. Implants do not rely on the neighboring teeth for support, allowing them to function just like your original teeth. They also help to preserve and stimulate the healthy bone in the jaw, preventing further tooth loss and maintaining facial structure. Additionally, because they function similarly to natural teeth, patients can eat their favorite foods without any concerns!

What is the process of placing dental implants?

The implant placement process typically takes place over a series of appointments, with healing time in between. During the initial appointment, the implant posts will be placed into the jawbone. Once osseointegration has occurred and the implants have fused with the bone, an abutment will be attached to the implant, and a custom-made replacement tooth will be placed on top.
