One of the most effective ways to return a lost healthy smile is the dental implant. You can think of implants as artificial tooth roots that are put in place of a lost tooth or teeth in order to support a crown, bridge or denture. They can help to restore your natural appearance and smile. At Dental Design Studio we have placed several hundred implants and are continuously amazed at how life altering the procedure can be for our patients. The procedure is usually almost painless.

How Can Dental Implants Help Me?
Implants are very much like “artificial,” tooth roots. They rest just inside of your jaw bone the way a real tooth would. Even their size mimics the space taken up by your natural teeth.
While our general and family dentists always strive to help you keep your natural teeth for life, this isn’t always possible in which case implants usually offer the very best alternative. When properly cared for, your implant can last you for the rest of your life. Unlike teeth they integrate with the bone, so they are very unlikely to move or ever become displaced. Implants are so strong, that they can support a variety of restorative dentistry options including dental crowns, bridges, and even dentures.
What to Expect During Your Dental Implant Treatment
Getting dental implants at one of our metro Phoenix locations is easier than you might think. Most of our patients say that the process is significantly more comfortable than having a tooth pulled and are surprised at how painless the procedure actually was. There are a number of ways to place implants from same day teeth to placing the implant and then allowing the area to heal and new bone to form for several months.
Finding an Affordable Dental Implant Office in the Phoenix Area
What’s the best way to find an affordable Phoenix, Scottsdale, or Gilbert dental implant dentist?
- Look for a dentist who has experience placing implants, so that your entire procedure can be completed start-to-finish in one office.
- Be sure to have an implant dentist who works closely with your insurance company, so that you maximize your benefits while paying less out of pocket.
- Compare which implant options are available, such as types of restorations and comparing traditional to mini dental implants.
- Consider 0% financing plans, so that you can affordably pay off your treatment without paying extra.
Types of Restorations for Dental Implants
Dental implants are a flexible alternative for replacing missing teeth, because of their capability of supporting a wide variety of different restorations. The type of restoration that you choose will depend on the number of teeth that are being replaced. Here are a few examples:
Single Implant Supported Crowns — If you only have one tooth to replace, our Phoenix area dentists will typically install a single porcelain crown over the top of your individual dental implant. The final results will resemble the look and feel of a real tooth all over again. A conventional option would have been a fixed dental bridge, but that would have required you reshaping the healthy teeth on either side. A single implant and crown keeps the rest of your smile healthy in the process. Plus with a single implant you can continue to floss around your teeth as you always have, of course that is not the case with a bridge.
Dental Implant Bridges — Let’s say that you have three or four teeth in a row that need to be replaced. Traditionally, your only option would have been to wear a removable partial denture, as a conventional bridge would be too long for the adjacent teeth to support. Now, you can have two implants placed, which act as artificial roots and can support your three or four-tooth dental bridge. In fact, you can even have longer bridges installed, when more implants are used.
Implant Supported or Retained Dentures — Does your denture rock or shift out of place? Do you have trouble keeping it from moving around when you talk or eat? Implants can be used to support your denture so that it doesn’t move.
Depending on the type of implant denture that you select, it can be removable (snap in-and-out) or permanent (affixed so that no one other than your Phoenix or Scottsdale dental implant dentist can remove it.)
Are Dental Implants Expensive?
All of the treatments with our Phoenix, Gilbert, and Scottsdale dental implant providers are designed to meet both your oral health needs and your budget. If that means using fewer dental implants to support a larger prosthesis (such as a denture) or more implants to support a multi-tooth dental bridge, your treatment is customized to exactly what you need it to be.
Plus, our Gilbert, Phoenix, and Scottsdale dental implant dentists offer affordable financing through CareCredit. That way you can:
- Start on your dental implant treatment the very same day
- Enjoy low monthly payments that fit into your budget
- Access 0% interest financing on all your treatment
- Pair your payment plan with your dental insurance, for the least amount of money spent up front
Dental Implants vs. Dentures: Which is Right for You?
Our Phoenix dental implant dentists are happy to review all viable options for your smile. After all, we feel that you deserve the same choices that a member of our own family would have access to. If that means you’re better off with a denture, dental bridge, or something else, we’ll let you know.
For most people, our dental implants are the best solution for replacing missing teeth. That’s because they’re longer lasting than any other type of dental prosthesis. It’s one initial investment that can withstand decades of wear. Dentures or dental bridges can usually only make it for about a decade when well cared for.
