At Chandler Dental Excellence, our skilled dentist, Dr. Kerry Taylor and our team offer dental implant restorations for our patients in Chandler, Arizona who have missing teeth. Whether your teeth are lost because of decay, gum disease, or trauma, our dental implant restorations will allow you to eat, smile, and talk again with confidence.
When a tooth is lost or removed, both the crown–the visible part of the tooth–and the root are gone. A dental implant is placed into the jawbone to fuse with the natural bone, allowing new teeth to be attached. If you need a dental implant done, you can expect the following:
— First, a cylindrical and/or tapered post made of titanium, typically, is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of your tooth.
— Once the implant has fused your natural jawbone, a connector, called an abutment, is built into the top dental implant to connect it to the replacement tooth.
— Then, a replacement tooth–or crown–is made to match your natural teeth, or even a bridge or dentures supported by the implants.
— Caring for your implants is the same as caring for your natural teeth–daily brushing and flossing, and finally, keeping your regular scheduled check-ups and cleanings.
