The Benefits of Dental Implant Surgery at AZ Family Dental
You might ask about our dental implants for a variety of reasons. You may want to replace your teeth for cosmetic or medical reasons — and in some cases, both. We love to use dental implants to help patients:
- Enhance their smiles on an aesthetic level by covering gaps, chips, and cracks
- Prevent bone loss that can happen as a result of missing multiple teeth
- Support the facial structure, reducing any premature sagging or thinning
- Inhibit the growth of bacteria in gaps between teeth and the gums
- Stop any dental damage occurring because of an uneven bite
- Regain chewing and speaking abilities hindered by missing teeth
As a patient looking for dental implants in the greater Phoenix area, you may want them for some or all of these reasons. You and our dentists may even think of another benefit of these teeth replacements.
Dental Implants as an Alternative to Dentures
If you have missing teeth, you may consider getting partial or full dentures. It takes a lot of careful consideration and advice from one of our dentists to decide which option will suit you best. Since implants become part of your jawbone, they support the rest of your teeth. They also let you avoid the gum irritation associated with wearing dentures and issues that come from an improper fit. However, you might prefer the benefits that dentures offer. Our dentist will explore your options with you and help you find the right solution.
About Dental Implants
Each of your teeth has two parts — the crown and the root. The crown consists of the hard substances visible in your mouth. Meanwhile, the root attaches the crown to your jaw. When you lose or damage a crown or root, the dentists at AZ Family Dental can use implants to resolve the problem. Implants include a titanium post that one of our dentists places into your jaw bone. They then add an abutment that provides structure and a crown that replicates the look of a natural tooth.

Frequently Asked Questions for Removable Dentistry
Removable dentistry is dental restorations that you can remove or take out when not needed for use. Examples of what we offer include dentures and gingival veneers. As these prosthetics are used to replace teeth, this gives you the freedom to take them out whenever they are not needed for a task like eating.
Yes. Removable teeth function like a natural set and allow you to maintain the same diet. You must clean your artificial teeth to prevent food buildup, but you can expect to eat as normal. This includes both food and drink.
Your wisdom teeth are the hardest to remove. Because of the tooth’s shape, size, and location, it can be more challenging to prevent nerve damage and post-procedure infection. Nonetheless, this is a standard procedure with a high success rate.
There is no limit to how many teeth you can remove at once. This can make daily necessities like eating more difficult, but a complete set of removable can be possible in cases of severe tooth decay.
While all teeth can be removed if necessary, wisdom teeth are not essential to remove. Unless they grow incorrectly or incompletely, wisdom teeth removal does not pose any benefits. For this reason, some people keep their wisdom teeth throughout adulthood.
