Missing teeth can be a serious problem. It can lead to difficulty speaking, eating and even cause your other teeth to shift out of position. At Thomas Dental in Phoenix, AZ, we provide dental implants that can restore the healthy smile you’ve always wanted. Dental implants are one of the best options for replacing missing teeth for a long-lasting, realistic effect. When it comes to dental implants, we offer a number of options to best suit your budget and your unique situation.
Subperiosteal Dental Implants
Unlike the traditional implants most people are familiar with, these are not embedded into the jaw bone itself. These implants use a metal frame that is installed around the jaw bone, which acts as the supporting post for the false teeth that are attached to the top. This is the perfect solution for patients who don’t have the proper bone density to properly support the traditional type of dental implant. This opens the door for even more patients to get the dental implants they need to restore the gaps in their teeth so they can have the healthy, beautiful smile they deserve.
This type of dental implant features a titanium post that is anchored directly into the jaw bone. This support post can then be used to anchor a dental bridge, crown or other replacement option to give the individual the solution they need to smile with pride. This is often one of the best solutions to help people restore their healthy smile so they don’t have to worry about what people will think when they smile and have gaps between their teeth.
For individuals who are suffering from many missing teeth, all-on-four dentures are the perfect solution to restore an individual’s smile completely. Instead of using traditional removable dentures that can look fake and cause a variety of problems on their own, four implants are used to anchor the dentures. These implants are strategically placed to secure a more permanent denture solution in place so individuals can smile with pride and look their best. They will not have to worry about taking their dentures out or securing them in place so they don’t experience embarrassing slippage. However, you will need to visit us often so we can make adjustments and ensure your permanent dentures are in excellent condition.
There are a number of dental implant solutions available to our patients. When you schedule a consultation with us, we will help you determine which implant treatment is the right one for you so you can flash your smile without a second thought.
