Benefits of Dental Implants

We know that replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants can be a big undertaking, but for many patients, the benefits are well worth the added time and effort associated with this complex treatment plan. Some of the many benefits of dental implant supported tooth replacement include the following:

Indications for Dental Implants

During your tooth replacement consultation, we’ll review your current condition and help you to find the best restoration plan. Depending on the number and location of missing teeth, we will recommend one of the following implant supported restoration options:

Missing One Tooth

To replace one tooth, we will use one dental implant post to support a custom crafted dental crown.

Missing Multiple Teeth

To replace two or more consecutive teeth, we will use two dental implants posts to support a fixed bridge restoration. To restore multiple consecutive and nonconsecutive teeth, we will use an implant retained partial denture. Depending on the size and shape of the partial, we may need to use anywhere from two to four dental implant posts.

Missing All Teeth

To replace one or both rows of teeth, we will use an implant supported full denture. In most cases, four to six strategically positioned dental implant posts are adequate to provide support for the denture.

The Dental Implant Process

The implant procedure is completed over a period of months in two phases. In the first, an experienced oral surgeon places one or more titanium implant posts in the jaw. A single implant stabilizes one prosthetic tooth while multiple implants stabilize implant-supported partial or full dentures.

After the procedure, your mouth needs to heal. As this happens, your implant(s) form a natural bond with the jawbone, a process known as osseointegration. The osseointegration process creates a strong, natural foundation for your future prosthetic. Once the process is complete, your implant(s) function as a prosthetic root stabilizing the crown or denture and stimulating jawbone tissue density keeping it strong and healthy over the years.

In the second phase of treatment, our Phoenix team attaches the custom restoration. Whether you need a single replacement tooth, a partial, or a full denture, you can have a complete smile that restores your health, beauty, and functionality.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

Every dental implant tooth replacement plan is different, and the cost of your treatment plan will vary dramatically depending on the number of missing teeth, materials used to craft the dental implant posts and replacement teeth, and other variables. For those patients who have dental insurance coverage, our team will do their utmost to maximize any available benefits. Most plans don’t cover the cost of dental implant posts or their placement, but benefits are available for many other aspects of your treatment plan, and we can help you make the most of this coverage. When necessary, we also work with third party financiers to offer low and no interest payment plans.
