Dr. Morse offers dental implant services at Morse Family Dental in North Phoenix, AZ. In addition to providing a strong anchor for a number of restorations, implants help to prevent bone atrophy and additional oral health issues. Implant-supported restorations are typically permanent, making them superior to their removable counterparts, such as dentures. With a permanent restoration, you never have to worry that it will slip out of place, and you can enjoy everyday activities like eating and speaking with comfort and confidence.
Dental implants are a screw-like post made out of titanium. These posts are embedded into your jawbone, replacing the root of a missing tooth. Over time, these implants will fuse with your jawbone to provides a superior foundation for permanent restorations. A single implant is not required to replace each missing tooth. While a single implant is necessary to support a dental crown, six to eight implants can typically support a full denture. A bridge or partial denture requires even fewer.
If you have any underlying oral health conditions, such as gum disease, we will treat those conditions and ensure you have properly healed prior to placing your implants. If you require a bone graft or sinus lift, we will perform those procedures in advance and monitor your healing to determine if you will be eligible for implants. We also perform any tooth extractions in advance as well, allowing time for your gums to heal in between procedures
Dental implants offer superior benefits over other restorative options. They are unique in the beneficial effect they have on your oral health. Dental implants act as your natural teeth, which prevents the jawbone atrophy that happens in the absence of teeth. Implant-supported restorations are permanent, making them the most functional and practical restorations available. With this stable and comfortable tooth replacement solution, you can chew, speak, and smile with total confidence.
