Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Tucson

Missing teeth are a detriment to the form and function of your smile. Fortunately, advancements in modern dentistry make it so tooth loss patients need not suffer for long. Replace your missing teeth permanently and comprehensively with dental implants from Swan Dental. 

Colby Echols, DDS, highly recommends dental implants. His endorsement comes with years of research which have proven the long-term benefits of dental implant supported restorations. 

Why Choose Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are the only way to replace an entire tooth, from root to crown. Whereas other restorative options rely on metal clasps, unstable suction, or other teeth to hold them in place, implant-supported restorations are supported by a titanium post inserted securely into the jaw. Due to the biocompatible nature of titanium, the post will integrate smoothly into the jaw bone with time. Thus, a dental implant post supports the integrity of the jaw bone as well as the restoration above it. 

Dental Implant Diversity 

A dental implant can support a wide array of restorations. Implant posts are a foundation on which Dr. Echols can construct a permanently gorgeous smile. With dental implants, patients can enjoy the long-lasting success of almost any restoration, including: 

Partial Dentures 
Full Dentures 
Single Crowns 

Protect Your Jawbone, Prevent Resorption

The human body is an ever-changing thing, and the jaw bone is no exception. As we age, our bones go through a process called resorption- by which the body absorbs the calcium from what it perceives as unused bone mass. The alveolar jaw bone, the part of the jaw that supports the teeth, is especially malleable. This area responds to primary teeth coming and going, and the shifting of adult teeth over time. But without tooth roots to keep it stimulated, the jaw bone will shrink significantly in a process known as advanced bone resorption. 

A dental implant post functions just as a natural tooth root. It keeps the jaw bone stimulated, triggers new bone growth, and prevents significant resorption. 

Long-term full-set denture patients are an excellent example of the effects of advanced bone resorption. Without teeth or bone to support the face, it takes a characteristically sunken-in appearance. The lips will purse forward as the face collapses over time. The face will take an aged appearance. Retain the integrity of your facial structure and extend your youth with dental implants from Swan Dental.

Very impressed. Dr. Echols conducted much of the cleaning himself and thoroughly examined my teeth and gums. Staff members were friendly and professional. I'm glad I chose this practice.

Swan Dental is a very friendly yet professional Dental Office with a great atmosphere, friendly staff and Doctor. This was my first visit and was called in exactly at my appointed time; I'm am very pleased so far. I'm happy I tried them. BTW, the prices they charged were a little lower than those of my previous dentist.
Update - some months later, went in for 2 fillings. Dr Echols and his assistant had them both done in about 20 minutes, and no pain. Simply a great dental office!

I live in North Carolina and was in Tucson helping our daughter move. A poor choice in candy selection resulted the crown on a lower molar "popping off". I called several dentists on a Monday morning and one of the dentist's receptionist referred me to Swan Dental - her personal dentist. The folks at Swan were incredible. They were efficient, kind, friendly, professional ... the superlatives just keep coming. I was thrilled to be seen the same morning I called and the dentist cemented the crown expeditiously. The receptionist, assistant, and dentist were all extraordinary. I wish the dental professionals in my home town were as focused on providing such an exceptionally positive experience. Thanks!
