Missing Pieces In The Mouth?

cost of dental crowns Yuma

A missing puzzle piece may not ruin a jigsaw puzzle, but a missing tooth can be very unsightly and ruin your smile. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ we have dental implants that can restore a smile.

A missing tooth can cause more than an unpleasant appearance. When a tooth and its root are gone, the teeth on each side of the gap begin to rotate. This can result in trouble eating and even speaking.

To make matters worse, the missing tooth root can also lead to bone recession. The jawbone is stimulated and kept healthy by biting and chewing action. When the root isn’t there anymore, the bone actually begins to recede. This leads to a shrunken appearance in the face.

Dental implants can solve this. An implant is a post that is placed inserted in the jaw. These posts are usually made of medical-grade titanium, which is ideally suited to fusing with human bone. Once it does it forms a solid foundation for the artificial tooth it will support.

Dental implants have been hailed as one of the most important advances in dentistry, and they’re available at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ. Patients from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton come to us for implants and other restorative dentistry options. Please call our office to schedule an appointment today!

Hate Your Dentures?

Yuma Dentistry Implant

For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.

Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people. If you hate your conventional dentures, they be just what your need.

As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.

Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:

  • More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
  • Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
  • Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
  • Prevent bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.

Implant-supported dentures can transform your life, and they are among the procedures available at The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ. We have a second office in Fortuna Foothills. Patients from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come to our office for complete general dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Need An Implant? Let’s Do A Checkup And Talk About It.

implant dentist Yuma

When is the last time you had a dental check-up? At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we recommend one every six months. If you are considering a dental implant, we can roll your checkup into an assessment of your viability as an implant patient.

Dental implants are an ideal replacement for a missing tooth. The implant itself is a metal post, usually made of titanium. It’s inserted into your jaw, where it fuses. Once that occurs (it usually takes a few months) implants can support one or more replacement teeth.

The really great thing about implants is that they look and function like natural teeth.

Most people are able to get a dental implant. It’s important that you’re in good health overall. The most critical factor, though, is that you have enough healthy bone in your jaw. Even if you don’t, bone grafting can promote the growth of new bone.

dental implant from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ can restore your biting and chewing ability. Patients come to us from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton, and we also have an office in Fortuna Foothills. Additional services include general dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!

Missing Teeth? Dentures And Implants Restore Smiles

Missing Teeth In Yuma? Dentures And Implants Restore Smiles

If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for complete or partial dentures or dental implants.

Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many Yuma dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.

Another alternative is a dental implant. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants prevent bone recession, and can even anchor a full denture arch.

To find out more about dental implants and implant-supported dentures, please schedule an appointment with The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ. We also have an office in Fortune Foothills. Call today!

Dental Implants Change Lives

dental implants Yuma

Many people have had a boost in self-confidence after restoring missing teeth with dental implants from The Yuma Dentist.

Nothing gives us more satisfaction than helping people improve their quality of life. With a new smile, they feel better about themselves. They feel more comfortable in public. They socialize more often.

Dental implants are an artificial tooth root that is implanted into the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. A single implant can support an artificial tooth; multiple implants can anchor a set of dentures.

Implants are most often made from titanium. One of their great benefits is that they help to prevent bone loss, which is common in people who have lost one of their natural teeth.

The success of a dental implant procedure hinges on the implant attaching to the bone. And this is the real beauty of it: titanium has the unique ability to fuse, or join, with bone. There’s actually a word for it: osteophilic, which means “bone loving.” This property has made titanium the material of choice in dental implants.

At The Yuma Dentist we offer dental implants, one of our restorative dentistry services. We have offices in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills. Schedule an appointment with us today!

You Have Nothing To Lose Except Loose Dentures

implant dentures Yuma

Modern dental technology has solved the problem of loose-fitting dentures with an extraordinary tooth replacement option, available at The Yuma Dentist.

Dental implant posts can anchor full or partial dentures, far more securely than conventional dentures. Implant dentures are secure enough to allow the wearer to eat an apple, chew a thick sandwich, or share a hearty laugh with boldness.

Dental implants can anchor either removable or fixed dentures. Due to the way each tooth space is correctly fitted with a restoration, implants typically fit better than traditional dentures. Dentures anchored with implant posts are comfortable, functional, and beautiful.

Dental implants can also help prevent bone recession that often occurs after teeth have been extracted.

At The Yuma Dentist, with offices in Yuma and Fortuna Hills, we are committed to complete patient satisfaction. In addition to implant dentures we offer general dentistry services. Schedule an appointment today.

Mini Implants May Be Right For You

How Mini Dental Implants Can Help Your Smile in 85365The topic of this post from The Yuma Dentist is implant dentures, sometimes called “mini implants.”

You may have heard about dental implants. A single implant can support an artificial tooth. They are surgically place in the jaw, and look and work like a natural tooth.

Implant dentures are multiple implants to support a set of dentures. Denture wearers benefit greatly from these slip-free dental implants that are also anchored securely in the jaw bone.

In some cases, a patient is unable to receive full-size dental implants due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also mini implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These patients are often excellent candidates for the mini version.

The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can sometimes be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if necessary, is ordinarily very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening.

Implant dentures can transform your life. Call The Yuma Dentist to schedule a consultation. Other services include general dentistry. Call today.
