If you’re looking for a more advanced and permanent tooth replacement solution, we offer dental implants in Sun City West. They’re the only treatment that restores the entire structure of your missing tooth or teeth, including the roots. This key difference allows implants to offer a variety of special benefits, such as the preservation of your jawbone and facial structure.
A dental implant is a small, biocompatible titanium post that we place beneath your gumline to restore the root of your missing tooth and anchor your restoration. Once placed, implants will fuse with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Then, we’ll attach an abutment on top, which is the piece that will eventually secure your customized crown, bridge, or denture to the implant.
Dental implants offer countless unique benefits that distinguish them from traditional restorations. Some of these include:
The best way to learn whether you could benefit from dental implants is to schedule a consultation with our team. During this appointment, we’ll collect images of your mouth and conduct a visual examination to determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
To fill a gap caused by a single missing tooth, we can place one dental implant below the gumline. Once your gums heal and the post fuses with your jawbone, we will secure a custom-crafted dental crown to it.
For multiple missing teeth in a row, we can use a dental bridge that’s held in place by two dental implants located on either side of the gap. Instead of having to alter your healthy teeth like with a traditional bridge, this option uses the strength of the implants to provide optimal security.
If you’re looking for a more stable alternative for a full or partial denture, we can utilize dental implants as a strong and sturdy foundation for your prosthetic. To place a full denture, we’ll insert four to eight dental implants along the arch to attach it to the jawbone. For a partial denture, the number of implants will be determined based on the location and number of missing teeth.
Some patients love the idea of dental implants but don’t want to have to live without their permanent replacement teeth for several months as their gums heal after surgery. In this case, you’ll probably welcome the idea of Teeth-in-a-Day, which is where we’ll place a temporary denture the same day as your implant surgery!

That’s why we partner with some of the most seasoned and knowledgeable oral surgeons in our area to conduct all implant placements. By doing this, we’re able to ensure the best results. Once your surgery is completed, our skilled team will handle the rest of your treatment.
The dental implant process will be customized to fit your unique needs and situation. During your initial consultation, we’ll gather all of the information we need to create a timeline for your procedure and calculate the total cost. Our team will be more than happy to discuss any financing options available to you and outline the details of your particular dental implant treatment during your visit!
