Your own teeth each have their own root, which keeps them securely anchored and makes your speaking and chewing effortless so long as you’re experiencing optimal oral health. Our Flagstaff dental implants, fashioned to mimic the qualities of your natural teeth, give you the same assurance of reliability. At the dental practice of Benjamin W. Stark, DMD, you can count on expert placement of implants that will last you for many years to come.
Traditional bridges and dentures were never ideal. They are good and serviceable options for restoring lost teeth, but they only lap on top of the gums. What sets apart our Flagstaff dental implants is the root. Here’s the way it works: a titanium post is put in your jaw through an oral surgery procedure. There it remains, as your bone tissue grows around the post. Typically, it takes a few months for a complete fusion to occur. At that point, your post is every bit as durable and dependable as the root of one of your natural teeth. The other key component is the tooth-colored crown. Impressions are taken so that it will fit precisely and comfortably between your real teeth. The crown is cemented to the post, and you now have a complete new tooth that does not require the loss of material from surrounding teeth, or the use of messy adhesive. Our Flagstaff dental implants do not only look real, but they feel that way, and they also perform that way. Chew your food, even the tough and crunchy stuff, without any worry. Brush and floss as normal.
If you take good care of your new implant, it can last you up to a lifetime. That’s getting a lot for the effort you put in. So why not reach out to our office right now and schedule an appointment to come in for a consultation and examination?
