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.
A 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!
