Dental implants are a wonder of the modern age. They are state-of-the art tooth replacement technology that are not only lifelike, but versatile enough to support one or several artificial teeth, or even a ful ldental arch. They are available at Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ.
What makes dental implants such a powerful tooth replacement option is the actual implant. Dental implants are not the replacement teeth. Rather, they are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. Within a few months’ time the post has fused with the bone: they literally become a part of your body, and are a solid support for artificial teeth.
One implant can support one artificial tooth. Several can support a dental bridge or dentures.
The New Gold Standard
One of the best things about implants is that they preserve bone mass in the jaw. An unfortunate consequence of losing a tooth is that the jaw begins to recede. This is due to the missing tooth root. Because an implant is part of the jaw, it stimulates the bone the way the tooth root once did.
But the greatest thing about dental implants may be that they are so lifelike. Implant-supported teeth allow you to bite and chew teeth naturally. You can eat the things you’ve always enjoyed, right down to steak and apples.
Dental implants are rapidly becoming the gold standard in tooth replacement. If you have lost one or more of your teeth, call us at Wildflower Dental in Sun City AZ and ask about single tooth implants, and implant-supported dentures. We’ve placed them in patients throughout Peoria, Surprise, and Sun City West, who like our all-inclusive pricing, lifetime warranty, free second opinions, and in-office discount plan.
