If a person has missing teeth, it may feel like the end of the world to him or her – or at least the end of having a beautiful smile. Not to worry though! With our cosmetic dentistry treatments, our renowned dentists at Arizona Smile Designers will be able to revitalize the smiles of our patients in and around Cottonwood and Sedona, AZ. If you happen to have a missing tooth or teeth, we gladly offer our dental implant procedure to give you back a full and healthy smile.
A dental implant is essentially a small, screw-shaped titanium post that’s used to replace the root of a missing tooth. The surgical procedure that’s used to insert a dental implant is minor and routine, typically only requiring local anesthesia. After a healing period that will last about three-to-six months for the implant to fuse to the jawbone, your dentist will top the dental implant with a lifelike crown that’s custom-made to match the shape and color of the rest of your teeth. While initial costs of dental implants are slightly higher than other tooth-replacement options, implants have a documented success rate of over 95 percent, which is much higher than any other option. Despite the cost, this is often the most cost-effective treatment in the long run.
