Dental Implants in Tucson, AZ

A dental implant is a replacement for missing teeth that is comprised of three parts: the implant (a screw secured below the gum line), the abutment (connecting piece), and the crown (artificial tooth). Dental implants offer a permanent solution for missing teeth, providing the look, feel, and function of natural teeth with unparalleled durability. We work to ensure your implant fits perfectly, enhancing oral health and aesthetics. From the initial consultation to the final placement, we’re with you every step of the way.

While out-of-pocket costs for patients with dental insurance vary on the particular plan, coverage, and limitations, we’re always happy to provide an estimate of cost based on those factors just after your consultation appointment. For those without dental insurance, we work to keep implants affordable by fixing the implant cost and providing flexible payment plan options.

  • What is the procedure for dental implants? Are dental implants safe?

    Dental implants at Art of Dentistry in Tucson, AZ typically follow the below process, but each patient is unique, so your process may vary.

    1. We will conduct a thorough consultation and examination before determining if dental implants are the right choice. This involves taking X-rays to assess the health of the bone and a digital scan of your teeth. We will discuss available treatment options to make a plan that works for you.
    2. The implant will be surgically placed into the bone and a healing cap will be fitted over it to begin the healing process. We can also place a temporary tooth while we wait for the implant to heal and your dental crown to be crafted.
    3. After the implant is placed, your jawbone will begin to heal around it, creating a stable base for your new artificial tooth. Known as osseointegration, this process typically takes between 4 to 6 months to complete.
    4. Once the healing process is complete, the abutment will be attached to the implant. The abutment is the base on which your artificial tooth (crown) will be placed.

  • What types of dental implants exist?

    Dental implants can be an excellent solution for people who have lost their teeth due to various reasons like injury or decay. There are two primary types of dental implants available, namely endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants.

    Endosteal implants are the more common type, and they are suitable for patients with a healthy jawbone. These implants are placed directly into the jawbone, providing a sturdy foundation and support for your jaw. On the other hand, subperiosteal implants are placed under the gums and on or above the jawbone. This type of implant is an excellent option for people who do not have a healthy jawbone.

    Several factors determine the choice between these types of dental implants, such as bone density, overall oral health, specific needs, and personal preferences. We can assist you in selecting the appropriate implant type for your requirements, so please don’t hesitate to call us today!

  • What are the benefits of dental implants?

    Tooth loss can be a difficult and frustrating experience, causing various challenges, such as difficulties in chewing and speaking clearly. It can lead to severe problems if left untreated, including tooth shifts, jawbone deterioration, facial structure loss, and imbalances – which can significantly impact one’s confidence and quality of life.

    We understand how overwhelming it can be to deal with these issues. However, dental implants offer a solution by providing an artificial root system that maintains order and keeps remaining teeth in line. Not only can dental implants help you overcome short-term challenges, but they can also prevent long-term problems linked to tooth loss.

    We want you to know that you’re not alone in this. Our team is here to support you and provide the most effective method for treating tooth loss. With dental implants, you can restore your smile and enjoy a better quality of life.
