Dental Implants – Glendale, AZ

Modern, Comprehensive, Life-Changing

Missing permanent teeth is an oral health problem that can impact other areas of your life outside of just your mouth. Without a complete smile, you may feel your self-confidence dwindling, have a difficult time chewing your food, and notice that effectively brushing your teeth is a little harder. With dental implants in our Glendale, AZ dental office, Dr. Upton and our team at Arrowhead Dentistry can rebuild your complete smile to mimic nature’s oral design.

Why Choose Arrowhead Dentistry for Dental Implants?

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants themselves are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline to restore the missing root structure of the teeth. Because of the biocompatible material they’re made of, they’re able to mimic nature and fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This provides the dental implants with the exceptional strength and stability needed to anchor your restoration and restore your smile.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. Dental Implant Consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Upton will examine your mouth and ask you some questions to get a better idea of your needs and the desires you have for your smile. He’ll then develop a customized treatment plan to walk you through it so you know exactly what to expect.
  2. Surgical Dental Implant Placement. Upton has advanced training that allows him to complete the dental implant placement surgery in-house, in the comfort of our own dental office.
  3. Osseointegration & Abutment Placement. After your implants are placed, they’ll undergo a process called osseointegration, which is where they’ll fuse with your jawbone. Once you’ve completely healed, we’ll attach small metal connector pieces to the top of your implants, called abutments.
  4. Attachment of the Final Restoration. As soon as your final restoration arrives at our dental office, we’ll call you in to attach it to your dental implants and complete your smile.

Who Can Dental Implants Help?

Dental implants can replace any number of missing teeth, making them an excellent treatment option for countless patients. However, there are certain situations in which somebody might not be a good candidate for the procedure right away. That’s why the initial consultation and oral examination by Dr. Upton is so important. Depending on your unique tooth loss situation, our team will let you know how we can restore your smile with dental implants.

Missing Single Tooth

If you’re missing one tooth, we can place a dental implant below the gumline and into the jawbone. This will anchor a custom-crafted dental crown in place to fill the gap between your teeth, no alterations to your natural pearly-whites necessary.

Missing Multiple Teeth

For multiple missing teeth in a row, we’ll place two dental implants at either end of the gap in your smile. These will anchor a dental bridge in place and preserve the alignment of your surrounding teeth.

Missing All Teeth

A full denture can be secured to anywhere from four to eight dental implants that are strategically placed along the gumline. These will provide your implant denture with a strong, unwavering foundation to be secured to. 

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

The entire dental implant procedure is customized to fit each unique patient’s needs, which is why there’s no singular price tag attached to it. The cost will be based on how many dental implants you need to have placed, what type of restoration you require, and whether you need any preparatory procedures before your implant surgery can take place. During your consultation, we’ll walk you through your entire treatment plan, including details about the cost of each portion of the process.
