Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Unlike uncomfortable dentures or bridges, dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Implants can also allow a person who has lost a tooth or multiple teeth regain the ability to eat and smile. You may also be eligible for a mini dental implant; we’ll take the time to discuss which option is better for your individual needs.

Do I Need Dental Implants?

Losing teeth makes it more difficult to eat and chew food, and over time the jaw bone can also recede due to disuse. It can cause a significant decrease in quality of life — 29% of denture wearers eat only soft or mashed foods and 50% avoid many foods altogether. However, replacing teeth as soon as they are lost keeps the mouth functioning correctly so you will, hopefully never have to mash your food! If you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth, implant dentistry might be right for you.

Why Is It Important to Replace Missing Teeth?

Replacement of missing teeth is essential to maintaining the bone in the jaw which, without teeth to keep it strong, can disintegrate over time. When a tooth is replaced as soon as possible after it is lost, the implant — which is made from titanium, just like hip and other joint replacements — replaces the root of the missing tooth. It is then used as an anchor to secure the replacement tooth or teeth without harming the healthy natural teeth that surround the space. This reduces the future risk of root canals and decay under crowns.

All-On-4 Dental Implants – Get Teeth In A Day

All-On-4 is a new type of permanent dental bridge that provides exceptional aesthetics and comfort for patients in need of a single missing tooth, four to six teeth implants or an entire arch. It’s designed to give you permanent placement of your new dental implants or fixed bridge in as little as one appointment.

All-On-4 is a fixed solution for patients who have numerous teeth that are missing or that cannot be restored. It combines the satisfaction of a fixed bridge with the confidence of a permanent appliance, and for most patients there’s no need for pre-installment procedures such as bone grafting, sinus grafting or lifting. In addition, no incision or suture placement means no healing time.

All-On-4 uses titanium implants, which have the ability to fuse with living bone. Over time, the implants become part of the jawbone and serve as a long-lasting foundation for your new teeth. In fact, stimulating the bone to prevent further bone loss is one of the most important benefits of this procedure.

Update : 5/11/20. I just cant say how amazing Dr. Harsini is he is so attentive, detailed- i had to get a little work done, and when i say no pain! No pain what so ever. Having the patient in a comfortable stat seems to be one of his priority and the staff too. Kudos to Jose the assistant too,was great. Just beyond impressed!!!Today was my first time in this office, after over 9years going to Thomas dental in Phoenix. From the day I made a call to set my first appt- the lady was so nice and sweet.. I wanted to reach thru the phone and hug her. I got a lil tour in the office they explained what each area is for. The Dr. Was just amazing wonderful.. didn't waste time but took the time to chat a lil with me, which was nice. Daisy was amazing and super sweet. Prices are FANTASTIC! Reason why I left Thomas dental is because they quality of service is not like it was before AND not to mention new management tried to pull as fast one on me. Tried to tell my my treatment was over 1,200!!! And smile dental less then 200.00That was disgusting and they tried doing the same thing to my son. We have been patients for years. New management is money hungry very sad.But thankful I found smile dental. Oh and another bonus- their equipment is pretty high tech!! Love it.

Best dental services I’ve had in some time. I’d been without 2 molars for over 5 years and after I got them implanted, they fit perfectly and felt like they’d been there the whole time. Thanks for making eating easier again!

I have gotten my preventative care with Luis done at this practice as well as an implant crown. After waiting 2.5 years to get that crown (life happens), Dr. Harsini and team did an expert job at designing and making sure my crown was perfect. It fits so well and I am FINALLY able to smile confidently again!! Being in the dental field myself, I was so happy to have my smile back. Thank you!!
