You don’t need to live without a full set of teeth. Dental implants offer a natural-looking, permanent solution to tooth loss. You deserve to smile, speak, and enjoy your favorite foods with confidence.

At Reimage Dental Studio, Scottsdale dentist Dr. Brent Call is proud to offer various implant treatments for your convenience. We’re proud to provide expert dental care and service to patients in the Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Tempe, AZ areas.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are sturdy titanium posts inserted directly into your jawbone for a durable and lifelong solution to tooth loss. After the titanium post is securely in place, a natural-looking dental crown can be mounted on top to restore the tooth above the gumline.

Implants mimic tooth roots, helping to prevent jawbone deterioration. When jawbones don’t receive necessary stimulation from tooth roots, they’ll begin to deteriorate, leading to a sunken appearance. This and many other benefits are how implants earned the title of the gold standard of restorative dentistry.

Benefits of Dental Implants

There are several reasons why dental implants are the most sought-after form of tooth restoration. Some benefits of dental implants include:

  • Natural Look and Function: Implant restorations look and act like natural teeth, so you can speak, chew, and smile with confidence.
  • Durability and Longevity: Implants are a durable solution to tooth loss that can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance.
  • Promotes Jawbone Health: Because implant fixtures mimic tooth roots, you won’t have to worry about jawbone deterioration or other problems.
  • Easy Maintenance: Implant restorations can be cared for like natural teeth. Simply brush twice a day and floss once a day to keep them in good condition.

Candidacy For Dental Implants

Patients who want a sturdy and reliable solution for tooth loss may benefit from dental implants. Dr. Call may recommend implants to patients struggling with:

  • Ill-fitting dentures or bridges
  • Irreparably damaged teeth due to dental trauma
  • One or more missing teeth
  • Severely decayed teeth

If your jawbone has atrophied too much from tooth loss, Dr. Call may recommend bone grafting as a complementary treatment to prepare you for dental implants.

If you have gum disease or another underlying oral health issue, we’ll provide treatment before placing your implant. Patients that are pregnant will need to wait until after their pregnancy to move forward with dental implants.

Our Dental Implant Solutions

At Reimage Dental Studio in Scottsdale, dental implants aren’t treated like a one-size-fits-all treatment. That’s why we offer a variety of implant restorations, including:

  • Single Implants: A single implant fixture used to replace a missing tooth, typically topped off with a dental crown.
  • Teeth-In-A-Day: A special dental implant procedure that lets you replace a full arch of teeth in just one appointment.
  • All-on-4: An implant solution similar to dentures that only requires the placement of four dental implants.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Initial Consultation

You’ll first attend a consultation with our dentist Dr. Call, where he’ll determine if dental implants are right for you and if you’re eligible to receive them. He’ll work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your individual needs.

Creating Your Implants

Most patients can receive their implant restorations in as few as two visits to our Scottsdale office. Our onsite 3D imaging technology also allows us to take in-depth images of your jawbone to find the best placement site and map out a treatment plan that will provide the best results.

At your first appointment, Dr. Call will begin by administering a local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. We also offer dental sedation methods for patients with dental anxiety or difficulty getting numb from anesthesia alone.

Once the numbness sets in, Dr. Call will insert your implant directly into your jawbone. He’ll then place a temporary crown to protect your implant site while osseointegration occurs. This is the process in which your implant fixtures fuse to your jawbone for a lifelong restoration. Osseointegration typically takes four to six months to complete.

Placing Your Implants

You’ll return to our Scottsdale office after your mouth has healed from your implant procedure. Dr. Call will remove your temporary crown and place your customized restoration. He’ll ensure that whatever restoration you choose will be customized to seamlessly blend in with your natural smile. Once Dr. Call places and fixes the restoration into place, you’re free to leave our Scottsdale office with a beautiful, functional smile!
