Dental Implants in Casa Grande, AZ: Replacement Teeth That Look and Feel Like Your Own
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Periodic follow-up visits will be scheduled to monitor your implant, teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy.

Replacing Several Teeth If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots.

How do I decide what type of tooth replacement / implant is right for me? This is something you need to discuss with your prosthodontist.
