At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number grows each year. You can restore your smile with a dental implant from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ .
A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed into your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They blend in with your remaining teeth, and look and function like the real thing. Dental implants are a long-term tooth restoration.
Dental implants also prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and helps strengthen the bone.
Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
Dental implants are one of the most significant advances in dentistry. To find out more, call The Yuma Dentist in Yuma and Fortuna Foothills AZ. People from Foothills, Winter Haven CA, and Somerton also come here for complete general dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
