Dental Implants

When it comes to tooth replacement methods, dental implants rise above the rest. Dental implants are small cylindrical titanium fixtures that replace missing tooth roots. These implants provide a stable base for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like real teeth.

Dental implants have over a 95% success rate. Dr. Ron Thompson is proud to provide patients with dental implant placement and restoration here at East Valley Dental Care and Scottsdale Dental Care. Instead of sending you away to a specialist, we will bring the implant experts to you. We take extra care to ensure your best results and a comfortable experience.

Protecting Your Healthy Mouth

Losing one or more teeth impacts your mouth, face, jaw, and appearance. Each of your teeth is surrounded by alveolar bone in the jaw, and when a tooth is lost, the support bone begins to degrade and deteriorate. One of the best ways to prevent this is by replacing a missing tooth root with a dental implant, which will stimulate and protect the jaw.

You can prevent bite problems and sinking facial features by replacing missing teeth with dental implants. We would love to sit and have a consultation with you at East Valley Dental Care or Scottsdale Dental Care.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Your East Valley or Scottsdale specialist will install a titanium implant into the jawbone. There will also be an abutment connector placed on top of the implant.

Over the course of a few months, your new dental implants will fuse with your jawbone. Once the jawbone accepts the dental implants, your dentist can attach dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to the implants.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that can:

  • Prevent bone loss and soft tissue damage
  • Provide natural tooth function
  • Eliminate the need to compromise healthy adjacent teeth
  • Ensure constant smile security

Dental implants won’t let your new teeth slip or slide in your mouth. You’ll be proud to smile, chew, and speak with your natural-looking new smile.
