A Fresh Start After Losing a Tooth

I know for a fact that dental implants can change your life. My name is Dr. Sheldon Sullivan and I’m writing this blog post directly to you! If you have a missing tooth, or even just teeth you feel are starting to fail, you’re not alone. At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant, and that number grows each year.

So there’s no need to panic. If you have recently lost a tooth, or are in dire need of help before you lose one, you can restore your smile with a dental implant from Artistry in Dentistry in Gilbert AZ easily!

A dental implant is a titanium post that our team helps me place in your jaw. An artificial tooth goes on top of the post. They blend in with your remaining teeth, and look and function like the real thing. They’re the most popular and successful dental restoration we offer, boasting a success rate of over 90%!

Dental implants also prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and helps strengthen the bone.

Implants can also be used to anchor dentures, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth. As for me, I consider it a great honor when a patient trust the restoration of their smile to my team.

Rest assured, we all understand what it’s like to sit in that chair. Though we are dental professionals, each and every one of us has been a patient at one point or another! We pledge to bring that empathy and relatability to every appointment, as well as an unmatched level of professionalism. Our goal is to create a respectful atmosphere that is judgment-free!
