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!

Restore Or Replace: New Life For Your Damaged Tooth

Yuma after hours dental Yuma

“Restorative dentistry” is a term dentists use to describe the way damaged or missing teeth can be fixed or replaced. At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, our goal is always to maintain or restore your dental health.

Restorative dentistry covers everything from filling cavities to dental implants. Filling a cavity can stop tooth decay in its tracks. And replacing a lost tooth with an implant prevents bone loss and facial sag, keeps remaining teeth from moving around, and restores chewing power and smiles.

Other restorative dentistry procedures include:

  • Dental crowns. These are tooth-shaped caps that are used to strengthen and improve the structure of a tooth.
  • Bridges. A dental bridge is a tooth replacement procedure in which an artificial tooth is anchored on either side of a gap, to “bridge” the area where there are missing teeth.

Before we wrap up this short article, we’d like to offer a word on categories. Some practices will call dental implants restorative dentistry. Some will call them cosmetic dentistry. Others still will put them in a category all their own. As Shakespeare said, a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

At The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, our services include restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Patients come to us from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton for our comprehensive dental care. We have offices in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills. Give us a call today to schedule your next checkup!
