DENTAL IMPLANTS IN
GOODYEAR, AZ

Replacing a missing tooth is now easier than ever with dental implants.

You can also have problems in talking or chewing food; and it is also the most common cause of jaw bone loss among many dental patients. Therefore, it is imperative to rectify this issue as soon as possible.

CAUSES OF
TOOTH LOSS

Wear and tear of the tooth structure

Different types of tooth injury, like accidents

Different types of congenital defects and issues

Root canal failures

Periodontitis (gum diseases)

Tooth decay due to cavities

3 DIFFERENT TYPES OF
DENTAL IMPLANTS

This type of implant is not removable. It is screwed and cemented to stay retained.

Case “A”

This type of implant is not removable. It is screwed and cemented to stay retained. This is the same procedure as above, but done to multiple teeth, instead of just one. This makes it easy to treat each tooth as a single tooth. (You can floss in between each tooth.)

Case “B”

Case “C"

This type of implant can give you up to 12 teeth on 4 implants. Four implants are surgically placed into your gums. Natural-looking teeth are designed to fit the “bridge” that goes into your mouth and is then attached to those 4 implants. (You cannot floss in between each tooth. These must be cleaned by a dental professional once a year.)

THE IMPLANT
PROCEDURE

Apprehension or fear regarding this procedure is normal as it sounds very complex. However, the following points will help clear your doubts:

  • Compared to conventional bridges and dentures, these implants are much more secure in nature. After the procedure is done, you will not face the issues of gum tissue irritation or cavity.
  • During implants procedures, proper anesthesia is administered along with sedation. So, you will never feel any pain during the procedure.
  • The healing phase for implants is generally 3-6 months.
