How Dental Implants Works

The Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth

Choosing dental implants at Desert Dentist offers you numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved Aesthetics: Dental implants are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, restoring your smile to its full potential.
  • Enhanced Confidence: Say goodbye to self-consciousness! Dental implants give you the confidence to speak, laugh, and eat without worrying about your teeth slipping or sliding.
  • Preserving Jawbone Health: When teeth are missing, the jawbone can deteriorate over time. Dental implants stimulate bone growth, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.
  • Long-lasting Solution: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a reliable and cost-effective investment in your oral health.
  • Improved Oral Function: Enjoy your favorite foods again! Dental implants provide a stable and strong foundation for biting and chewing, allowing you to indulge in all your culinary cravings.
  • No Worries About Cavities: Unlike natural teeth, dental implants are immune to cavities. Still, regular oral hygiene is essential to maintain healthy gums and surrounding teeth.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Comprehensive Examination

Your journey to a new smile begins with a thorough examination. Our team will assess your oral health, take X-rays, and discuss your dental goals to determine if dental implants are the right choice for you.

Treatment Planning

Once we confirm that dental implants are suitable for you, our skilled dentists will create a personalized treatment plan. This plan will address your unique needs, timeline, and budget.

Implant Placement

During the implant placement procedure, the titanium posts are carefully positioned in your jawbone. Local anesthesia and sedation ensure a comfortable experience, and thanks to our advanced techniques, the process is simple and painless.


After the implants are placed, a critical process called osseointegration takes place. Over the next few months, the implants fuse with the jawbone, creating a strong and stable foundation for your new teeth.

Abutment Placement

Once osseointegration is complete, abutments are attached to the implants. These connectors will hold your replacement teeth securely in place.

Customized Restorations

Finally, our skilled team will create custom-made replacement teeth that match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size. These restorations will be attached to the abutments, completing your beautiful new smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as artificial tooth roots. They provide a stable foundation for attaching replacement teeth, allowing them to function, feel, and look like natural teeth.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The dental implant process typically takes several months to complete. After the initial implant placement, a period of healing called osseointegration occurs, during which the implants fuse with the jawbone. This process usually takes about 3 to 6 months. Once osseointegration is complete, the final restoration can be placed.

How long does it take to get an implant?

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth and offer exceptional durability and longevity.

How do I care for dental implants?

Caring for dental implants is similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental check-ups are essential to maintain oral health. Avoiding tobacco use and practicing good oral hygiene habits will help ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Can smokers get dental implants?

While smoking can increase the risk of complications during the dental implant process, smokers can still be candidates for dental implants. However, it is highly recommended to quit smoking or at least reduce smoking habits to promote successful healing and improve overall oral health.

Can anyone get dental implants?

Most healthy adults with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants. However, certain factors such as underlying medical conditions or insufficient jawbone density may affect eligibility. Our dental professionals at Desert Dentist will conduct a comprehensive evaluation to determine if dental implants are suitable for you.

Are dental implants worth the investment?

Dental implants are considered a valuable investment in your oral health and quality of life. They provide numerous benefits, including improved aesthetics, enhanced oral function, and preservation of jawbone health. With their durability and long-term success rates, dental implants offer a cost-effective solution compared to other tooth replacement options.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Dental implant coverage varies depending on your insurance plan. While some dental insurance plans may provide coverage for a portion of the implant procedure, others may offer no coverage at all. Our team at Desert Dentist will work closely with you and your insurance provider to explore your coverage options and maximize your benefits.

Are dental implants painful?

During the implant placement procedure, local anesthesia is used to ensure your comfort. You may experience some mild discomfort or soreness afterward, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers. Our experienced team at Desert Dentist will take every measure to ensure your procedure is as pain-free as possible.

Are dental implants better than dentures?

Dental implants offer several advantages over traditional dentures. They provide a more secure and stable fit, allowing for improved chewing and speaking abilities. Dental implants also help preserve jawbone health by stimulating bone growth. Unlike dentures, which can slip or require messy adhesives, dental implants are a long-lasting and reliable solution.
