Dental Implants FAQ
Photograph of a dental implants from East Valley Implant & Periodontal Center Out of all of the tooth restoration options, dental implants remain the very best. Dental implants replace the tooth root of the missing tooth and, in the process, prevent the loss of jawbone. They are also the most natural-looking prosthetics and offer superior functionality and comfort when it comes to chewing.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are typically in the form of a titanium screw that is embedded into the jaw at the site of a missing tooth. Oral surgery required to place the implant inside the jaw is minimally-invasive and often only requires local anesthesia, though we at East Valley Implant & Periodontal Center may give you some form of sedation as well if you are prone to anxiety. Once the site of the surgery has healed, the implant will be capped by a dental crown which is made to resemble your natural teeth.

Types of Dental Implants

There are two types of dental implants:
•  Endosteal: This is the most common type of implant and includes screws or cylinders surgically implanted into the jawbone. These implants can hold a single prosthetic or multiple prosthetics. Endosteal implants are generally used as alternatives to dentures or dental bridges.
•  Subperiosteal: This involves fitting a metal framework beneath the gum tissue but above the jawbone. As the gum heals, the frame will fuse to the jawbone. These implants are used for patients who do not have a lot of bone height.

What Does a Dental Implant Procedure Involve?

Depending on the condition of your jaw and the type of implant you need, Dr. Todd Jorgenson and will create a dental treatment plan that suits your purposes:

Replacing a Single Tooth

If you are missing only a single tooth, a single implant, abutment and crown can be inserted into the jawbone to replace it. This treatment option has the highest rate of success. Your implant will never become infected and it will feel just like your real tooth.

Replacing Multiple Teeth

If you have lost multiple teeth, then implant-supported dentures are a good choice. You have the option of getting an individual implant for every missing tooth but a more conservative option is to get only a few implants that can serve as support for a dental bridge.

Replacing All of Your Teeth

If you are missing all of your teeth, then implant-supported dentures or The All-on-4® Treatment Concept are a good choice for you. In the treatment, about four to six implants hold an entire arch of teeth.

Sinus Augmentation

The back part of the upper jaw is the most challenging place to install a dental implant successfully because of the proximity to the sinuses and low bone quality. Sinus augmentation can raise the floor of the sinus and make more space for the augmentation of the bone for dental implants.

Ridge Modification

Infection, trauma, and deformities in the upper and lower jaw can leave you with low bone density. To fix this, the gum tissue is lifted away from the ridge and the bony defect is filled with a bone graft so that healthy bone can develop in its stead.

Am I A Candidate for a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are safe and effective and, fortunately, almost all people with good oral health can qualify for this treatment. Dental implants, however, may not be effective for heavy smokers and people that consume alcohol as these substances interfere with the bone development and healing process. Additionally, expecting women should consult with their OBGYN before they get a dental implant or wait for the baby to be born to get this procedure done.
