Missing teeth can be very detrimental to the dental health as well as the overall health of an individual. The loss of chewing ability, the loss of jaw stability, and the loss of self-esteem due to missing front teeth are just some of these issues. Dental implants improve upon traditional restorations by replacing entire teeth, from roots to crowns. Implants also create anchor points for securing dentures to replace multiple missing teeth. Hallberg Family Dentistry offers dental implant restorations in Flagstaff. Schedule an evaluation with Dr. Dale Hallberg to find out if dental implants are right for you.
Completely Restore Your Smile
Dental implants are surgical grade titanium posts that replace missing tooth roots, to which crowns, bridges, and dentures can be attached. This biocompatible material becomes secure as bone grows around it.
Dr. Hallberg uses the excellent dental specialists in Flagstaff to place his implants. After the implant anchors to the bone, Dr. Hallberg completes the restorative treatment by placing the necessary prosthetics atop the new "osseo-integrated" fixture.
Hallberg Family Dentistry combines the foundation of dentistry, form and function, with the optimal esthetics achievable to create predictable and attractive prosthetics (teeth). Patients also have the option of Atlantis® Zirconia and UCLA custom-made abutments for a precise fit and natural-looking appearance.
Dental implants are versatile in their application. Restorations that could not have been performed 20 years ago are now frequent occurrences:
Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth at any point in the smile using one dental implant without affecting adjacent teeth.
Multi-unit bridges replace multiple missing teeth using two or more strategically placed dental implants for maximum support, strength, and esthetics.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth using anywhere between four to eight dental implants.
Proper implant placement requires adequate bone width, depth, and density to go along with good health and good oral hygiene. A specialist in Flagstaff may need to improve the foundation of bone by conducting preliminary procedures such as bone grafting, sinus lifts, and/or ridge augmentation.
Why Upgrade to Dental Implants?
Teeth roots missing from the smile can greatly affect the well-being of an individual. As time passes without replacing the root, the jaw bone will go into a process of accelerated resorption or atrophy. Over a period of time, this can result in an inadequate amount of bone to anchor an implant. Dental implants timely placed help to maintain the bone integrity and help to prevent jaw bone deterioration.
