Dental implants are artificial teeth (usually made of titanium) that are surgically placed into the jaw bone to replace missing teeth. Most implants have two parts. The first part is a titanium post inserted into the jawbone that will integrate with the bone over time. This process allows the post to function like a tooth’s root. The second part of an implant consists of a custom dental crown, which is attached to the post. The crown fills in the space and acts very similarly to the original missing tooth
What are the benefits of implants?
When is the last time you allowed yourself to experience joy, smile big and laugh out loud without the fear of what your teeth or lack of teeth looked like? Dental implants provide patients with so much more than a beautiful smile. When patients have a full functioning, healthy, straight, and complete smile, their confidence soars. An overall improvement to one's quality of life takes place. No more slipping dentures or missing teeth allow for improved speech, easier eating, stimulation of jaw bone so we can stop premature aging of the face and more.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?
The best way to find out is to schedule a complimentary consult for an exam and 3D CT scan (Cone Beam Computed Tomography). This appointment will give Dr. Joe the ability to evaluate three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone density. With this information Dr. Joe will be able to come up with a personalized treatment plan and discuss the implant restoration process from start to finish. From your initial exam and 3D CT scan, the Aria Dental Implant Center team will work with you to select from a variety of payment options.
About the procedure
Most implants require two separate surgical procedures. If possible, the doctor will place the implants in a “one-stage” surgery, which will not require a second stage surgery. If this is not a clinical option, there will be a second surgery to uncover the implants. At the first appointment, the implant is placed into the jawbone. The implant then heals for 3-6 months following the surgery. The second surgery is usually easier and has a faster recovery. It entails uncovering the implant from the tissue and placing a small post that will protrude through the gums until the crown is completed. At the time of implant placement, the doctor will need to numb your jawbone and gums that surround the area with an anesthetic. During the implant process, you will feel pressure and vibration, but not pain.
How Much Do Dental Implants cost?
What patients tend to find is that we are significantly more affordable than other offices. No other office in the valley provides the All-on-4 dental implant fees that we do with a clinician as experienced as Dr. Joe.
Our Phoenix dental implant office places single dental implants, implant-supported overdentures and All-on-4's. Depending on what procedure best matches your desired smile goals and the work needed to get you there will determine the cost. Since this is the case, we provide our patients with a complimentary consult and 3D CT scan. Our free implant consults allow patients to meet our Phoenix implant dentist, discuss their smile goals, get x-rays, receive a treatment plan and discuss financing... all at no cost!
