Dental implants are an option for tooth replacements that can give the look and feel of your natural teeth. In the past, dentures or bridges were used to replace missing teeth with good results. Now however, Arizona dental implants can be used to provide the same functionality as your tooth root, providing more comfort and durability for greater success and satisfaction.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is implanted in either your upper or lower jaw bone to replace the missing tooth or teeth. Once bone has grown over the implant, it can hold a crown, bridge, or overdenture, exactly like teeth roots hold natural teeth in place.

Arizona dental implants require the same maintenance as natural teeth, brushing, flossing, and regular dental check ups, and can last a lifetime if they are taken care of properly.
