What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that's surgically placed into the jaw. This appliance bonds with your jawbone and acts as a natural tooth root. Dental implants serve as a foundation onto which an artificial tooth or set of artificial teeth are secured. They are highly versatile and can replace a single tooth, groups of teeth, and even an entire smile.
Dental implants offer better long-term value than conventional teeth replacement options. In addition to being a more aesthetic choice, dental implants also function like natural teeth. They help prevent bone deterioration, preserve facial structure, and allow you to eat any type of food. What's more, you don't need to sacrifice the health of adjacent teeth to provide support for your new restoration.
Our Expert Implant Services in Scottsdale
Dr. Bleeker and our skilled team work with you to provide quality dental implants and replacement teeth that will restore your smile and confidence. As a maxillofacial prosthodontist, Dr. Bleeker has extensive expertise in the tooth and jaw structure and create implant-supported restorations that are optimally designed for your unique features.
To determine if dental implants are right for you, we will start with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral and overall health. This will allow us to evaluate if you're an ideal candidate and to create the most effective treatment plan. If you have any oral health issues, such as bone loss or gum disease, we will address those before placing the dental implants.
We use CBCT technology for diagnostics and planning, and advanced computer-guided surgery to provide the most comprehensive, comfortable, and precise dental implants. Depending on your needs and situation, we can even place your implants and replacement teeth in one appointment.
Immediate Dental Implants
At our practice, we're committed to providing innovative and effective treatment that gets you back to a fully functional smile as quickly and completely as possible. With our All-on-4® and Teeth in a Day treatments, we can completely restore your entire dental arch in a single procedure.
We use four specially placed implants to support a full arch of fixed replacement teeth. In most cases, two of the implants are placed in a tilting position to ensure a secure and stable anchorage for the replacement. This makes All-on-4 an ideal option for some patients with limited bone tissue.
Some of the benefits of our Teeth in a Day treatment include:
- Only one surgery is necessary
- You'll leave the office with a complete smile
- You may not need a bone graft since implants are placed where the bone is thickest
- There's less downtime and a quicker road to recovery
- Fixed replacement teeth are more comfortable, secure, and natural-looking
Get Better Dental Implants with CBCT Technology
At our practice, we perform all our dental implant procedures with the aid of a cone beam CT scan. This digital imaging technology uses a mouth scanner and state-of-the-art translation software to create intensely accurate, high-resolution 3D images of your teeth, gums, and jaw. It provides detailed information that cannot be obtained with a regular CT scan or x-ray.
Primarily a CBCT scan provides us with information about:
- The quality of the bone at the site where the implant will be placed
- Precise bone dimension measurements
- The potential need for a bone graft or sinus lift
- Location of nerves and blood vessels
- The exact shape of the site of the implant
This detailed information takes the guesswork out of the implant placement, which makes the entire process safer and more likely to succeed. Once we've mapped out your oral structure, we can use the information to create a comprehensive placement plan and implement it using our computer-guided surgery for absolute precision and long-lasting results.
Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifts
Having sufficient bone strength and density is critical for the success of dental implants. If your jawbone is thin, weak, or inadequate, we may recommend a bone graft or sinus lift to regenerate enough bone for implant placement. Dr. Bleeker will place a small amount of bone in areas that have suffered the most deterioration. In about 3-6 months, once the area has healed and stabilized, you should have enough new bone for the implant to fuse to. We will discuss your grafting options and the procedure in-depth to make sure you feel confident about your treatment.
