Patients who are missing one or more teeth have more replacement options than ever before. But our patients at Desert Smiles are increasingly opting for dental implants, a long-lasting and natural-looking alternative to dentures and bridges. Dr. Donald Wilcox has helped countless patients in the Phoenix area improve their appearance and oral health with modern dental implants.
Dental implants consist of small titanium screws that are surgically placed in your jawbone. These screws mimic the tooth’s natural root, providing structural support and integrity. Over time, the jawbone actually fuses with the screw in a natural process called osseointegration. After the screw has set, a dental crown is attached, which looks and acts just like a real tooth.
The many advantages of dental implants include:
- 95 percent patient satisfaction rate
- Natural appearance
- Easy care
- Improved jawbone strength
- Better oral health
Dental implants offer a long-lasting improvement over alternatives such as dentures and dental bridges. In fact, with proper oral health practices and regular checkups, dental implants can last a lifetime.
