The Dental Implant Difference
The roots of your teeth do much more than hold your teeth in place. Beneath your gums, the bone in your jaw is in a constant state of activity. The roots of your teeth stimulate your bone to renew itself and maintain a certain level of integrity. When you lose a tooth, this process stops in that area. The bone begins to reabsorb and becomes thinner.
In time, the integrity of the bone is compromised. Other teeth will come loose and may shift in their position or fall out themselves. As you lose more root structure, the bone continues to deteriorate, eventually giving you the “sunken” appearance that is so commonly associated with missing teeth.
The titanium posts of dental implants function in the same way as your own roots, stimulating your bone and helping to maintain its integrity and putting a stop to the tooth-loss cycle.
At Agave Dental, we both place and restore dental implants. Dr. Hamann has extensive training in the surgical placement of dental implants, which ensures that your experience will be a positive one. Keeping the entire process right here in our Phoenix dental office allows you to enjoy the comfort and confidence that comes with having the procedure performed by the dentists you know and trust. This continuity of care also reduces the chances of problems caused by miscommunication and saves you valuable time.
We think that dental implants are the future of dentistry for patients who are missing teeth. If you are missing teeth or have damaged teeth that need to be replaced, don’t hesitate to give us a call to learn more about this state-of-the-art new technology.
