Your Comprehensive Guide to Dental Implants
If you are considering replacing missing teeth with dental implants, you’ve come to the right place. Drs. Sullivan and Monahan take a customized approach to tooth restoration. They act like the general contractor in your dental implant process, collaborating with local specialists if needed, to ensure you receive the best treatment options along your dental implant journey. Read on to learn more about dental implants so you can make the best decision for your restorative care.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a permanent, natural looking tooth replacement solution. With implants, the typical downsides to other tooth replacement options — such as dental bridges and dentures — are eliminated. Because implants are placed in the jawbone, they maintain their strength while restoring the chewing power you need to enjoy your favorite foods. You’ll no longer have to worry about your restoration coming loose.
What is the Dental Implant Process?
At Artistry in Dentistry, we take a customized, artistic approach to tooth restoration. The dental implant process starts with a consultation with one of our dentists so they can determine your needs. They will listen to your goals for tooth restoration and design a treatment plan that attains the goals you set out. Depending on which implant solution is decided upon, you may be able to have a fully restored smile in just one day.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Anyone who is missing teeth and wants to restore function and beauty to their smile in the most natural way possible may be a candidate for dental implants. Having good oral and overall health will help ensure an optimal outcome. However, if you are in need of any preparatory treatments to improve your dental health, Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Monahan will work with you and other dental professionals to ensure a more successful outcome.
Treatment Options Compared
Whether you need one tooth replaced or many, we offer a full range of dental implant treatment options to fit your needs. From single dental implants to replacing a full arch with an implant supported restoration, our dentists will work with you to find the right restorative solution for your smile.
Consequences of Missing Teeth
Did you know that having gaps in your smile due to missing teeth is not just an aesthetic issue? The truth is, missing teeth can lead to short-term and long-term effects on your oral and overall health, such as an increased risk of gum disease and additional tooth loss. The good news is, replacing missing teeth with dental implants at our practice in Gilbert offers a solution that minimizes the consequences of tooth loss.
Same Day Implant Dentures (DIEM Method)
For patients who are currently wearing dentures or have failing dentition and are in need of a full arch replacement, we’re happy to offer implant supported dentures. Similar to All-on-4, the DIEM method can give you a restored smile in as little as one day. We’ll remove any failing teeth if necessary, place as little as four implants, and attach a temporary denture in just one appointment.
Dental Implants Can Help
Imagine a life without the hassles of dentures or the difficulty of eating with gaps in your smile. With natural-looking dental implants, we can make that life a reality! We’ve seen how tooth restoration with implants can improve the quality of life for our patients. So, what are you waiting for? The first step toward a restored smile is to schedule a consultation with one of our implant dentists. They’ll create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your goals and improve your life for years to come.
