If you have suffered from a tooth that was lost or damaged by decay, our oral surgeon may recommend dental implants in Mesa, Arizona to restore your smile. Unlike many other restorative treatments, dental implants are more durable, more secure and act more like natural teeth than other replacement options, so you can feel confident with the appearance of your smile. Other benefits of dental implants include:
- Being able to enjoy your favorite foods with ease.
- Improving your speech.
- Boosting your self-esteem.
- Spending less time on maintenance compared to dentures.
- Not having to worry about coming back in for adjustments.
- Protecting your long-term oral health.
To being the dental implant process here at Christensen Oral Surgery, Dr. Edward Christensen will first perform an oral exam to see if you have healthy gums and enough jawbone to support an implant before moving forward with the implant placement. During your implant placement, our oral surgeon will place an implant post, which is a tiny screw made of titanium, into your jawbone at the site of your missing tooth. Once this has been placed, you will be asked to go through a period of healing before coming back in to complete the restoration.
If you have any questions about this process or would like to schedule a consultation with our oral surgeon, Dr. Edward Christensen, to receive dental implants in Mesa, Arizona, please give us a call at 480-659-5977.
