When you lose a tooth or need an extraction, a dental implant is a strong, permanent, and healthy support system for your new replacement tooth. Dental implants are designed to replace the root of your natural teeth. Oral surgeons place the implants into the bone beneath the gums, where they integrate naturally with your bone. This bond prevents bone loss and creates a strong foundation for your crowns or denture attachments. The implants will permanently hold your teeth in place, and they look and feel identical to healthy teeth.
The doctors at Arizona Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons have years of experience performing dental implant procedures. Our staff will work as a team with you and your dentist to complete your dental implant treatment. You will be able to eat whatever you want without worrying about your teeth causing discomfort, slipping, or falling out of place. To learn more about dental implants, feel free to continue browsing our website, or contact one of our offices in Tucson, AZ, or Oro Valley, AZ, for more information.
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars to grow into the dental arch. These third molars come in at the back of your mouth — one behind each of your second molars. Wisdom teeth don’t fully grow in until after the other adult teeth finish developing (usually during a person’s early late teens or early twenties). Many patients don’t realize they have new teeth growing in until their wisdom teeth start causing pain or other problems.
Luckily, dental professionals can track the development of your wisdom teeth and refer you to an oral surgeon. If your wisdom teeth are positioned in such a way that will cause problems, oral surgeons can remove wisdom teeth to prevent infections, damage to adjacent teeth, dental crowding, and other oral health issues. To learn more about wisdom teeth, the oral health problems they tend to cause and their management, check out the resources on our website or contact one of our offices in Tucson, AZ, or Oro Valley, AZ, for more information.
DIEM® full-arch replacement dentures are a permanent alternative to removable dentures. The procedure, sometimes referred to as the All-on-4® treatment or Teeth-in-a-Day, works by using dental implants to secure a fixed denture. Oral surgeons can perform this treatment to restore an entire upper and/or lower arch of teeth, depending on your needs. The procedure is much more efficient than replacing each tooth with single implants but still provides permanence and health benefits.
Dental implant-based tooth replacement options provide patients with a variety of advantages. In addition to improving patients’ ability to eat the foods they enjoy, dental implants can also prevent bone loss and other oral health problems. The full-arch prosthesis will be custom designed to fit your mouth. To learn more about whether or not the full-arch replacement is right for you, contact one of our offices or check out the additional information on our website.
