If you have one or many missing teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Benjamin W. Stark, DMD, our expert dentist, Dr. Benjamin Stark, can provide you with beautiful and well-placed Flagstaff dental implants.
When a patient comes to our dental practice for Flagstaff dental implants, our dentist will first need to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are not a good candidate for dental implants, the dental implant process stands a good chance of not being successful, so it will not even be started at our dental practice. However, should you not be a good candidate for dental implants, there are other tooth replacement methods available. Our patients thoroughly enjoy getting dental implants because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. When you come to our office for dental implants, our dentist will first assess the health and thickness of your jawbone. It is important that your jawbone is healthy so that it can fully recover from the dental implant surgery. It is also important that your jawbone is of a certain thickness so that the new titanium dental implant root will be able to firmly fuse to the jawbone. It is this fusion process that enables dental implants to be so sturdy and secure. If the dental implant cannot become secure in the jawbone, the dental implants will not work, and will most likely need to be removed. For this reason, our dentist needs to know that the candidate is well-qualified for the procedure, before starting treatment. Once you are determined to be a good candidate for dental implants, our dentists will surgically insert one titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. When healing has completed, a porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the top of the root, and your dental implant will be complete.
