Have you experienced tooth loss due to trauma or injury, severe tooth decay, aging, or advanced periodontal disease? Have you noticed a decline in the function and appearance of your smile due to the loss of one or more teeth?
If so, dental implants may be the solution you need to restore your smile. Implants are permanent tooth replacements that replace both the root and crown of the tooth for a long-lasting and stable result. Our dentists may recommend dental implants in Sedona, Arizona, to improve your smile’s health, function, and appearance. Once we have restored your smile with dental implants, you should notice an improvement in your ability to speak, chew, and eat as usual. Implants are designed to act, look, and feel like your natural teeth for an excellent restoration.
The dental implant process requires two main steps: the implant placement and the restoration. An implant post is first placed into the jawbone in the space left by the missing tooth; this replaces the missing tooth root and provides a stable foundation for the restoration. Following a period of healing, Dr. Babcock, Dr. Bill or Dr. Hughes will place your custom-made implant restoration, which replaces the crown of the tooth.
Dental implants are a long-lasting solution that can help to keep you healthy, prevent problems, and maintain optimal oral health.
