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.
