Looking for Dental Tooth Implants in Scottsdale, AZ?

Scottsdale AZ Dental ImplantsDental implants from Judy Huey DDS are a permanent alternative option to replacing missing teeth. A dental implant has two parts: a bio-compatible metal root and a custom-made tooth/crown which is attached to it. Underlying bone is prepared to accept the root which becomes part of your jawbone.

Most people in good overall health are excellent candidates for implants. Implants have been in use for over 40 years and have a high success rate. They can replace one or more teeth, support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture or provide support to make a complete denture more secure and comfortable.

Missing Teeth

If you have a missing tooth or teeth, it may be difficult for you to smile or chew.  But you don’t have to be ashamed of the gap between your teeth.  There are many options available to replace a missing tooth.   A space left by a missing tooth or teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift out of position. This malocclusion can make you more susceptible to gum disease and cavities. Dental implants are a popular option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth, thereby improving your chewing, speech and smile.

Dental Implant Benefits

Some of the benefits to dental implants are that they are the most natural looking and conservative solution for a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants are fixed in place and do not require removal at night. They require the same home care as natural teeth.

Dental Implant Cost

The cost of dental implant will vary based on individual, insurance coverage, etc.  We strongly encourage you to make an appointment with us for an initial evaluation and estimate.

How can denture implants help denture wearers?

    Denture wearers oftentimes lack confidence that their denture will firmly stay in place in their mouth without becoming loose.  For patients who are having this difficulty, denture stabilization implants will help you eat and speak more confidently. This can be especially helpful for the lower denture. Also, because the denture no longer slides on the gums, denture implants help retain the jaw bone.
