Dental implants are an excellent option for patients with damaged or missing teeth who want a more permanent solution than implant dentures Scottsdale. At Precious Smiles, we carefully coordinate the manufacturing and installation of your dental implants between your restorative dentist and the oral surgeon.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial teeth that are permanently attached to your gums via a support system. While removable dentures replace missing teeth, they do not provide jaw support. The jawbone deteriorates without teeth to stimulate bone growth, and dental implants provide this support using an artificial root. By filling the gaps in your teeth, implants shelter neighboring teeth from additional decay. The color and shape of your implants are seamlessly matched to the rest of your teeth, and since all on 4 implants in Scottsdale, AZ are made of similar materials to your natural teeth, they effectively restore proper biting, chewing, and speaking functions.

What is the Procedure for Installing Tooth Implant Scottsdale?

Dental implant surgery has many steps, performed over several months to allow for healing and growth of your gums and jaw.

  • If the implant is replacing a damaged tooth, the tooth is removed.
  • Your jawbone is assessed for surgery. If your teeth have been missing for long enough, your jawbone may have weakened and required a bone graft. In this procedure, a piece of bone is transplanted from another part of your body to strengthen the jaw bone. Several months may be necessary for the grafted bone to grow strong enough to support an implant.
  • Next, the implant is placed. Your oral surgeon anchors the implant deep within your gums and jawbone. This is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. At this stage, you will have a gap in your teeth, and you may request a temporary denture implants Scottsdale to fill the gap for appearance.
  • Several more months are required for the jawbone to grow and fuse with the implant. This process will provide a solid base for your new tooth.
  • In a separate surgery, the abutment is placed: a support rod where the crown will attach.
  • Finally, you will choose the type of artificial tooth: removable or fixed. Removable teeth are similar to removable dentures, while fixed teeth are permanently bonded to the abutment.

Throughout this process, your dentist and oral surgeon will guide treatment and ensure your comfort. Though affordable dental implants surgery can be long and involved, the results are durable and long-lasting, with a full restoration of tooth function. Call Precious Smiles to get the process started, and experience our top-quality, thorough care.

Dr. K is outstanding.
He and his team treated me like an old family friend. The team is also super nice, respectful, courteous, and want to go the extra mile to ensure my needs are met. My wife and I have been going here for 4 years and always thankful for our decision to switch to them. I hope as they grow, that they do not let go of any of their staff, because our experience has been great so far!

Dr. Kaocharoen is an exceptional dentist and a really nice person.
He's amazingly gentle, quick, and technically perfect. Stacy, the hygienist, and Kristi, the front office person, reflect what a great practice this is. I've been a patient for over 10 years and have never referred a person that did not rave over Dr. Kaocharoen and his staff.

Welcome to your affordable dental care provider in Arizona. Our practice is committed to giving you the best possible smile and providing quality care in a relaxed, comfortable environment.

It is widely assumed that you should see a dentist twice a year. This is a good rule of thumb to remember when in doubt. However, if you want to know how frequently you should have a dental checkup, you should consider your specific mouth, hygiene, habits, and overall health.

Many people wait till they experience toothaches or awkward color changes before visiting a dentist. But this is not advisable. A problem that started mildly would have gotten worse before it got the notice of the dentist. And it may become more problematic. Visiting a Scottsdale Dentist regularly for a check-up means protecting yourself from a bigger problem. Just as the proverb says, a stitch in time saves nine. Again, you may have a dental problem and not be aware. You can also visit a dentist to get teeth whitening done; it will boost your confidence and give you a precious smile.

As part of good oral hygiene, you should change your toothbrush regularly. The dentist advised that you should change your toothbrush every three months. Plaques accumulate on your toothbrush, so you should change them regularly. Patients treating tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues should change their toothbrushes more often. Toothbrushes should be washed, cleaned, and kept in a cool place. Electric toothbrushes can be used for more than 3 months before replacing them. We await your visit to Scottsdale Dentistry. Kindly reach out to us through the details given on our page.  We want to see your precious smile.
