Dental Implants Phinney Ridge
Tooth loss can make eating and speaking difficult, but finding an effective tooth replacement option that meets your lifestyle is possible!
At Phinney Ridge Dental, we offer dental bridges, partial dentures, and dental implants. We can help you make a decision that works best for you. Many of our patients choose dental implants because they provide unsurpassed comfort and convenience.
Benefits of Dental Implant Treatment
Losing teeth can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile. Tooth loss is embarrassing where your appearance is concerned, but it also negatively affects your overall health. When you lose teeth, you can also begin to lose valuable bone, the support structure for your smile. Dental implants help to retain essential bone, protecting your remaining teeth.
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth without limiting your diet. Do you enjoy a perfectly grilled steak or a bowl of crunchy carrots? With dental implants, you can have it all! Since dental implants provide stability for your restorations, you will not be limited in the foods you can eat.
Dental implants also provide exceptional convenience for our patients. Caring for a dental implant is very much like caring for your natural teeth. Brushing, flossing, regular dental exams, and professional cleanings will help you maintain your dental implant health.
Dental Implant Placement
Dr. Micah Bickel has successfully placed hundreds of dental implants in the last year alone. His experience and expertise provide our patients with exceptional results both aesthetically and for proper function. Creating healthy, happy smiles is a passion of Dr. Bickel’s, and he has invested in continuing education and training for bone grafts, gum grafts, and sinus lifts to make dental implants possible for almost any patient.
For dental implant placement to be effective, a certain level of bone density must exist. If there is insufficient bone, Dr. Micah Bickel can perform bone grafting to increase your bone density, making this procedure and surgery possible.
When sinuses interfere with proper implant location, we can provide a sinus lift to relocate the sinus cavity, making room for your dental implant.
Once we successfully place your dental implant, we allow proper time for healing. The integration process usually takes 3-4 months. During this time, we will monitor your progress closely, so we can continue with your treatment once healing occurs!
Dental Implant Restoration
Restoring your dental implants is the final phase to restoring the health and appearance of your smile. We create each dental crown individually to make the fit comfortable and esthetic. We design the size, shape, and color of your dental crown to complement your other teeth and fit with your bite.
Once we restore your dental implant, Dr. Micah Bickel will make any small adjustments to ensure a perfect fit. The end result is a seamless, comfortable smile!
