Is your ability to eat and speak impacted by missing teeth?
Dental implants paired with a custom restoration like a crown, bridge, or denture can improve your dental health and quality of life.
Learn how Dr. Mark Davis in Scottsdale, AZ, partners with local implant specialists to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
What Are Implants?
Dental implants are titanium or zirconia posts that are surgically placed directly into the jaw to replace tooth roots. These restorative dentistry treatments return function to your smile, allowing you to eat and speak properly and smile with confidence.
Understanding Jawbone Atrophy
When a patient loses a tooth, the jawbone no longer has the stimulation the tooth root once provided. Without that stimulation, the jawbone begins to deteriorate. Zirconia and titanium implants are the only dental solution that can stop this jawbone atrophy. They act as prosthetic tooth roots, stimulating the jawbone. Dental implants also provide stability for your restorations so they look and feel like natural teeth.

Missing Teeth? You're Not Alone.
It is estimated that 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth and about 40 million Americans are missing all of their teeth.
Implant-Supported Restorations to Fit Your Needs
A crown is an artificial tooth that is crafted and shade-matched to look just like a natural tooth. An implant-supported crown is often the best dental solution when a patient is only missing a single tooth.
Dental bridges are comprised of crowns that have been cemented together. Implant-supported bridges are held in place on either side by dental implants. This restoration fills in the gap caused by up to three consecutive missing teeth.
If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, dentures supported by implants may be a good fit for you. Implant-supported dentures do not require messy adhesives, and instead are secured in place by implants for improved stability. Our Scottsdale office also offers All-on-4® dental implants that can support a denture for patients who may not qualify for traditional options due to jawbone atrophy.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
Not every patient is an immediate candidate for dental implants. Many need to first undergo a bone graft to combat the effects of jawbone atrophy. However, if you have lost most or all the teeth along a dental arch and have experienced some degree of bone loss, you may still qualify for All-on-4® dental implants. This method uses four implants to support a full denture. The two posterior implants are placed at a 45-degree angle for optimal contact with the jaw. This can help you avoid the need for a bone graft and expedite your treatment timeline.
