What Are Dental Implants? Dentist in Scottsdale Answers

June 17, 2017

Are you considering dental implants? If you’d like to know more about how they work, your dentist in Scottsdale has the answers.If you have ever had to replace a charger for your phone or laptop, you know just having the cord isn’t enough — you also need the part that plugs into the wall. It’s kind of the same if you’ve lost a tooth. Dental implants are the only replacement option that give you back the stabilizing root as well as the crown, or the portion you can see. Why does that matter so much? Your dentist in Scottsdale, Dr. Alex Martin, explains more about dental implants in this week’s blog post.

Will Bioengineered Teeth Become a Possibility Someday?

March 26, 2013

restorative dentistryRight now, one of the best restorative dentistry solutions available for dentists and patients is dental implants. With dental implants, patients of Dr. Martin who are missing one or more teeth can replace what they’ve lost, improving their appearance and their smile’s functionality.

Part of what makes dental implants so effective is that they’re structured like natural teeth, with a crown on top and a prosthetic root underneath. This prosthetic root can help patients preserve their jaw and prevent future bone loss—something traditional bridges, partials, and dentures can’t do.

But as effective as dental implants from Dr. Martin and our Scottsdale team can be, they can’t fully compete with natural teeth. That’s why doctors and researchers are looking into the possibility of helping patients grow new teeth from their own stem cells.

Science World Report has revealed that, in a study put out by the Journal of Dental Research, selecting certain cells from a patient’s gum tissue may enable him or her to grow a new tooth where one has gone missing. This is good news for patients and doctors alike.

But a future with bioengineered teeth is still a ways off. Until then, dental implants are still the best way for patients to enjoy natural appearance and functionality.

To find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, call Dr. Martin’s Scottsdale dental office. We serve patients from Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills, and beyond.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants from VIP Dentistry

August 9, 2012

A complete smile is a precious thing. Just consider how the underlying structure of your smile can change with the loss of one or more teeth: First, the part of your jaw that used to be in contact with your now-missing tooth root will begin to atrophy. Then, as it weakens, surrounding teeth are put in danger until, finally, more teeth are lost, negatively impacting your smile’s functionality and appearance.

Traditional restorative options—like traditional bridges, partials, and full dentures—can return some of what you’ve lost, but none of these replaces your missing tooth roots, which are essential to really giving you back the smile you once had.

That’s why Dr. Alex Martin offers dental implants at his Scottsdale dental office. With dental implants, Dr. Martin can help you replace your missing teeth and your missing tooth roots, providing permanent results that will improve your quality of life and your self-confidence.

But to restore your smile with dental implants, you have to be a candidate for the dental implant process. The entire implant process can be completed in two stages. During the first stage, your doctor will place your dental implant posts. Then, after your jaw and your implant posts have had time to bond, your procedure can be finished with the restoration stage. During the restoration stage, your bridge, partial, or full denture will be attached, completing your new smile.

Are you ready to find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants? Dr. Martin would be happy to meet with you. With a simple consultation appointment at our Scottsdale office we can help you determine if dental implants are really the right choice for you.

Call us today! We serve patients from Phoenix, Paradise Valley, Fountain Hills, and beyond.
