Dental Implants and Bone Structure

Preserving a patient’s bone structure is one of the most important considerations we have in patients who have lost one or more of their teeth. At Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ one of the best ways we can do that is with dental implants.

The loss of bone mass is an unfortunate consequence of missing teeth. Most of that bone loss happens during the first year of a tooth’s loss. Because of that, it is best if we can place a dental implant within that first year.

As you may know, dental implants are titanium posts that we position in the jaw. Within three to six months of placement they fuse with the bone. They mimic the behavior of a tooth root by stimulating the gums and bone tissue. This helps minimize and even prevent bone loss.

Patients who have already lost bone mass may still be able to get implants. Bone grafting can promote enough new bone growth to make an implant work.

A single implant can support one artificial tooth, and it looks and functions like a natural tooth. Several implants can support a dental bridge, or even a full dental arch.
