Dental implants are a permanent solution to tooth loss. They are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
They help prevent bone deterioration, preserve facial structure, and allow patients to eat any type of food. This helps to maintain healthy smiles and improve confidence.
A dental implant is a metal post, typically made of titanium, that your Scottsdale dentist surgically places into the upper or lower jawbone. Then, a crown is placed on the top of the post once it has firmly fused with your bone.
Treatment for a single dental implant usually takes a few months. After implantation, your dentist will need to see you for a second appointment, during which time the implant fixture is integrated (solidified) into your jawbone. This process, called osseointegration, is critical for a strong foundation that supports a dental crown or other restoration.
If you’re looking for a straighter smile, you may want to consider Invisalign®. This innovative orthodontic technique uses clear removable aligners to gently and gradually move teeth toward their ideal positions without traditional metal braces.
The treatment period for Invisalign® can last up to 12 months or longer, depending on the severity of your misalignment. At your first appointment, our team will take digital scans and photographs of your teeth to create a personalized treatment plan.
Once we have your initial set of Invisalign® trays in place, we’ll schedule regular appointments to monitor your progress. We’ll provide you with a new set of trays every couple of weeks, which should help you achieve your desired results faster than traditional metal braces.
When you’re wearing your aligners, it’s important to keep them clean. A helpful tip is to rinse your aligners with a mixture of vinegar and water. This helps to prevent molesting bacteria and maintains their effectiveness.
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today, teeth whitening is an affordable and safe solution to lighten tooth color. Over time, the natural aging process and the consumption of foods and beverages that contain staining agents can cause a person’s smile to become discolored.
Teeth whitening can brighten your smile from the inside out, restoring your confidence and giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you have general surface stains from coffee, soda, and other items that can stain your teeth, or deeper discoloration that needs to be removed from the enamel, our office offers both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatment options.
Professional whitening uses powerful peroxide to break down and remove stains from the tooth enamel. Over-the-counter products can also help to lighten your smile, but these are not regulated by the American Dental Association (ADA) and may be unsafe for use.
Whether you are missing all your teeth or just a few, our team at Dentist of Scottsdale AZ can help you rebuild your smile with dentures. Designed to closely resemble your natural teeth, dentures can give you back the confidence you need to enjoy life and the activities you love.
Patients can opt for a full set of dentures or a partial set depending on their tooth replacement needs. Our dentist will take impressions of your gums and have the dentures customized to fit your mouth, ensuring that they look as natural as possible.
The dentures can be made in a dental laboratory from the impressions and are crafted to resemble your natural teeth. They are available in a variety of colors and shades to match your unique preferences.
