DENTAL IMPLANTS SURPRISE

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for the replacement teeth that look, feel and function as natural teeth, enabling you to eat normally and smile with confidence.

Implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jaw bone, which helps prevent bone deteriation and preserve the facial structure.  

Single or multiple implants are natural looking and fee more like normal teeth as well as supporting a stronger bite. Dental Implants can last a lifetime with brushing and flossing and regular check ups which are recommended as plaque and tarter can accumulate on and around your dental implants.  

 

EVALUATION FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS

A consultation with Dr. Vo here in Surprise AZ would be the first step.  At this time, you will undergo a dental & health history, a radiographic examination along with addressing your needs and concerns for the procedure.

Ideal candidates for implants are non smokers and in good oral health.  You need to have sufficient amount of bone in the jaw along with healthy gums.

Your questions and considerations are very important to us and our team will work closely with you to make your procedure a success.  

 

DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE

Dental Implants are surgically placed within the jaw bone, underneath the gum surface, gradually bonding with the jaw bone. This process then requires 3-6 months of bonding time.   During this time you are able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet.  Dr. Vo utilizes this time to design and produce your bridgework of implants from the impression taken previously.  

The second surgical procedure consists of placing the attachment over the posts which will then be bonded with the artificial tooth or bridgework of teeth.

The entire procedure and process take approximately 6-8 months, however, most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily lives.
