Dr. Bryce E. Justesen may suggest dental implants in Mesa, Arizona, if you are missing one or more teeth. A dental implant consists of an post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and a dental restoration, like a dental crown. At our office, we provide the dental implant restoration.
Dental implants have many advantages. In a nutshell, dental implants can restore both the beauty and the functionality of your smile. Dental implants do not shift or slip in your mouth. Because of this, they provide security and stability when you eat and speak. Dental implants become a permanent part of your mouth. They are cleaned just like your teeth. Implant placement does not require the alteration of other teeth, so no healthy tooth structure is lost. Dental implants prevent the nearby teeth from shifting. This helps preserve your jawbone and the shape of your face.
Our dentist will examine your gums and jawbone before recommending a dental implant. If the gums and jawbone are healthy and can support an implant, you may be a candidate. To be a candidate for a dental implant, you must also be in good health.
