A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, typically a titanium appliance, that is placed into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or a bridge or denture to restore multiple missing teeth. Dental implants last longer than alternatives like bridges and dentures, and they look more natural, too.
What are the steps for getting Dental Implants?
The initial step is to meet with an oral surgeon at AZ Max for a complimentary consultation. At this consultation, the doctor and you will determine your needs, assess your oral health, review your medical history, obtain diagnostic x-rays and then discuss treatment options in order to create a customized treatment plan just for you. We’ll also discuss costs, timing of surgery as well as financing options, if necessary. This exam can usually be completed in about an hour. Once completed, you are ready to schedule your surgery.
Following your surgery, there is a recovery period where the implants will need to heal and fully integrate with your bone before the dentist can restore the permanent crown, bridge or dentures. It will usually take 3-6 months for the restoration to be complete.
Who typically gets Dental Implants?
Those likely to benefit from Dental Implants include people who have been experiencing problems with conventional dentures or simply people who have lost as much as a single tooth. Implants make life easier for those that have been finding it difficult to chew, speak and smile. Dental Implants can preserve or slow down the process of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that Dental Implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the way they enhance your facial structure. Furthermore, they can help you to speak more clearly and confidently.
What are the specifics for Teeth-in-a-Day Dental Implants?
AZ Max offers an innovative approach to restoring the All-On-Four Dental Implants ›
Traditional approaches to restoring a patient’s upper and lower teeth usually involved six or more dental implants, and as many as 18 months of treatment. This approach typically requires that a patient would often be without any teeth or with an ill-fitting temporary denture for more than a year.
This is not the case at AZ Max. There are new and better techniques. You may have seen or investigated a few of the these new techniques which are promoted under such brand names as: “All-on-Four®”, Clear Choice®, “Teeth In A Day“, “Teeth in an Hour“, “Dental Implants in One Day“, “Teeth In One Day“, “Teeth In One Visit“, and many other one-day implant treatment offerings of a full arch of replacement teeth.
AZ Max offers a wide range of dental implants solutions, including the popular All-on-4 procedure.
