Kyrene Family Dentistry in Chandler offers dental implants to patients who need to replace their missing or completely damaged teeth. Artificial tooth replacements are used in place of natural teeth that have been lost because of the following reasons:
- decaying tooth
- failure of root canal treatment
- trauma to the mouth
- periodontal disease
- damage brought about by excessive wear and tear
While dental implants are a specialty in dentistry and not all general dentists have the background necessary to provide their patients with dental implants, trusted Chandler dentist Dr. Santoro has the expertise and the right certifications to perform this complex procedure. You can count on us to give you the right treatment plan for your case. Over the years, we have successfully helped our patients achieve smiles that are not only a vision to behold, but are also durable enough to continue the functions of a tooth.
Dr. Santoro recommends dental implants over other treatment options to his patients for a number of reasons:
- They are stronger and more durable than crowns and bridges.
- They offer a permanent solution to tooth loss.
- They can also be used alongside dentures and dental bridges to increase the stability of dentures, helping minimize irritation of the gum tissues.
- Why choose dental implants?
One key benefit of getting the type of dental implants patients prefer over other tooth replacement systems is that an implant is connected directly to the jaw bone. It is ideal when there’s nothing to connect a replacement tooth to the bone. While it is quite obviously far from the original connector, it is specifically designed to serve the same function.
When a particular tooth is lost, missing, or completely damaged, there is bound to be bone loss because the root is no longer present to stimulate and stabilize the jaw bone. Our implants are made of the finest materials that provide a stronger, natural bond to the bone.
How long will it take for the procedure to complete?
It is important to remember that replacing a tooth with a crown and a dental implant is not a one-day procedure. This is because the implant has to be given time to properly adhere to the bone where the missing tooth originally was. It needs to fuse into the bone before a crown is attached and full bite force is applied. It usually takes a few months to finish the whole process.
Since the procedure is a series of steps that require regular visits to the dentist, it is important that you seek assistance from a dental practitioner that specializes in providing the kind of dental implants patients need to replace their lost tooth.
