Dental Implants in Phoenix, AZ
Ask Dr. Trujillo a Question
Whether you’re missing one or many teeth, we would love to help you! We aim to be the best office for dental implants in Phoenix, and we’re confident we can do some great things for you. Dental implants are posts that are set in the jawbone where synthetic teeth can be placed and function in the place of real ones. Thanks to the miracle of restorative dentistry, these dental implants can return your smile to its complete functionality and elegance. We can help you get back to a point in your life where eating, laughing, talking and smiling is a joy, and the complication of damaged or missing teeth is nothing more than an old memory. We love to see our patients happy!
Benefits of dental implants
If you’re missing teeth or need to have teeth pulled, dental implants can provide a long-term solution. Unlike dentures, implants don’t need to be removed or maintained - they feel, look and work just like real teeth! Consisting of titanium posts securely set into the jawbone, the titanium bonded with the bone provides a solid base for artificial teeth.
This solution usually lasts a lifetime and it looks completely natural. Additionally, if you’re missing teeth, you could be losing bone mass from your jawbone which could present future complications. Dental implants can prevent this issue and keep the jawbone healthy and strong. They can also serve as an anchor for other procedures that involve replacing missing teeth.
Is this procedure right for me?
Although this procedure can be an amazing method of restoring your smile, it is not the best option for everyone. Your health is extremely important to us, and for that reason we want to make sure that the implant is a success. We need to ensure that your bone and your gums can heal correctly. For these reasons, a few qualifiers exist to determine who should consider this procedure. A candidate should have healthy gums, sufficient jawbone support and a strong willingness to practice oral hygiene.
Dental implants can provide a natural appearance and function for a single missing tooth or replace a full set of dentures.
Additionally, if you smoke frequently, are pregnant, are young and still have a growing jawbone, this procedure may not be the best option. We would love to talk to you and answer any questions you might have! Of course, everyone has a unique set of circumstances and if you’re not sure how the requirements affect you, we can consult with you and clear up any concerns.
We can help you decide if getting dental implants is your best option. The procedure has a few different phases, and we’ll happily walk you through them and explain what you can expect. We will carefully listen to your questions and help you decide what plan best suits you.
What’s the procedure like?
When you come into our office we’ll have an evaluation with you where we will discuss your health. We’ll take a look at your teeth, take x-rays and review your medical health. Additionally, we may recommend a CT scan if we need to understand more about the shape and strength of your jawbone. This also helps us to map out the necessary nerves and sinuses. When that is done, we can create a fitting prosthesis and begin installing the implants. We’ll see that your bite fits perfectly and your smile looks completely natural.
All on Four
One kind of dental implants surgery we offer is called All on Four. All on Four is a revolutionary new procedure that gives you a brand new set of teeth in a day - that’s right, just one treatment and all in just one visit! Whether you’ve suffered serious damage to your mouth and you’re missing teeth because of periodontal disease, or if you suffer from some other condition that has left you without many functioning teeth, All on Four can restore your smile.
The procedure is called All on Four because rather than restoring your teeth with implants tooth by tooth, All on Four features a complete dental bridge that locks in place situated on four posts. These posts are set into your bone, and hold your new set of teeth right in place. Because it only requires four implants, it can also be cheaper than getting multiple dental implants. If you are interested in this treatment, we would love to talk to you about it!
If you’re thinking that you would like to get those missing teeth replaced, we invite you to call us today for an appointment! We’ll schedule a time for you to come in so that we can answer your questions and find a way to best meet your needs.
Start your day with a beautiful smile.
When you visit our office, your oral health is our top priority. Dr. Trujillo and his entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized, gentle care that you deserve.
