Dental Implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Many would agree that nothing is better than natural teeth; however, it's great to know that if teeth are lost due to disease or an accident, Dr. Gary Robison can easily replace them with dental implants.Dental Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Dental Implants are inserted into the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a firm foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, Dr. Gary Robison uses implants to attach dentures.

Dr. Gary Robison uses Dental Implants for a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:

  • Single Tooth Replacement
  • Anterior Replacement
  • Posterior Replacement
  • Full Upper Replacement

If the missing tooth space has no surrounding teeth, Mesa Dentist Dr. Robison may decide an implant is the best treatment choice or option for you.

How to take care of your Dental Implants

Proper oral hygiene is especially important when a patient has received a dental implant.

Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth when teeth and gums are not properly cleaned, thus causing gums to swell and jaw bones to gradually recede. Recession of the jawbone will weaken implants. To ensure the health of your teeth and implants, Dr. Gary Robison advises his patient to schedule a visit at least twice a year.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care your dental implants can last for decades.
