The Facts About Dental Implants: Scottsdale Dentist

Implants are one of the most popular dental restorations as it offers a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth. Compared to others treatments, such as fillings, crowns, and root canals, implants last the longest. Below are FACTS about dental implants.

  • Our implants are titanium

    • Our Serenity Smiles implants are made of titanium which binds to your bone through something called “osseointegration.” Titanium has proved to be the best material for dental implants and is a permanent solution to replace missing teeth or secure loose dentures.
  • Implants stimulate your bone

    • Stimulating your jaw bones effectively prevents noticeable aging effects. Dental implants keep your bone stimulated so it does not die or decrease with missing teeth or as you age. Looks of a “sunken face,” or decreased jawline are due to lack of bone to fill the face. You can learn more about facial aging at https://www.livescience.com/35332-face-bones-aging-110104.html.
  • Implants are delivered to you in 3 unique components:

  • Implants can secure dentures

    • If you already have dentures or have treatment pending for dentures, implants placed on both the upper and lower arches of your mouth to secure them in place! Also, implant-retained dentures improve the taste delicious foods because the palate is exposed, unlike with traditional dentures.
  • Over 3 million people have dental implants in the US

  • Implants are the closest restoration to a natural tooth

    • Implants stimulate bone just like your natural tooth root does, so it is the closest feeling match to a natural tooth.

A lot of prepping and planning happens with implants. Your dentist will require medical history and a CT scan of your jawbones to ensure that implant restorations are possible for you.
