Implant Dentist in Scottsdale - Dr. Ronald K. Thompson - Replace One or More Missing Teeth
Dental implants can make a dramatic difference in your smile — and your quality of life. Missing teeth can not only affect your self-confidence, but also speaking and eating as well. With dental implants, you no longer need to suffer with missing teeth or endure the hassles of removable dentures. If you’re interested in getting dental implants in Scottsdale, Dr. Ronald K. Thompson of Scottsdale Dental Care can help.
Our Implant Dentistry Services
Dr. Thompson is an experienced implant dentist who will place and restore dental implants for you. An extensive exam is performed to make sure implants are the right option for you. If your jaw bone density is poor, Dr. Thompson will perform bone grafting to ensure the implant has enough viable bone to support it. Bone grafting places bone from another part of the body into the jaw to help secure the implants.
Dental implants can be used with:
- Single crowns
- Full and Partial Dentures
Dental implants are life-changing for many of our patients, some of whom have struggled with the hassles of removable dentures for years. We use ultra-durable Straumann implants, which are placed directly into the jaw bone for maximum stability. The bone heals around the implant; after the healing process, replacement teeth are placed.
Benefits to Dental Implants
Implants are an investment into your future oral health. There are many benefits to dental implants over other tooth replacement options which include:
- Freedom to eat anything you want. With removable dentures, some foods are off-limits. Dental implants let you enjoy all of your favorite foods without restrictions.
- No more slipping dentures. When secured by dental implants, dentures remain securely in place at all times.
- Long-lasting results — dental implants are designed to last.
- No need for messy adhesives; dentures snap on to the implants and off for easy cleaning at home or by your dentist.
- Stops remaining teeth from shifting into open gap.
- Promotes bone regeneration
Dental implants are an investment in a more confident and beautiful smile. They fill out the facial structure to minimize the look of aging, and even prevent possible tooth decay caused by the issue of one or more missing teeth.
Whether you already have dentures or need to get them, dental implants can help you avoid the problem of dentures that don’t fit. Poorly fitting dentures are uncomfortable; when secured by dental implants, your dentures will fit comfortably and securely.
