Dental Implants In a Day! It is Totally Possible

Losing your teeth can be embarrassing. Don’t cancel your date tonight! Visit Dr. Steven Poulos and Dr. Sid Stevens they can do dental implants in a day at My Scottsdale Dentist. Come in and restore that beautiful smile of yours.

A dental implant procedure typically takes a few months to finalize. But wait, I thought you said they could do it in a day? They can! While the full procedure will not be completed for a few months, My Scottsdale Dentist can provide you with temporary implants, so that you can carry on with your normal life in the meantime. You’ll be able to see what your restored smile will look and feel like, and the best part is no one will ever know!

The key to dental implants is replacing the root of the missing tooth. Metal anchors will be surgically inserted into your jaw. These anchors need to bond with your jaw bone or else the procedure won’t be successful. It typically takes 2 to 6 months for the anchors to completely bond. In the meantime, Dr. Steven Poulos and Dr. Sid Stevens will fit you for temporary teeth to wear for this period of time.

Once the anchors have bonded with the jaw bone, small posts are attached to the anchors. These protrude through the gums, and will have teeth attached to them. Finally, Dr. Poulos and Dr. Stevens will create artificial teeth to attach to the aforementioned posts using dental impressions.

Modern dental implants are completely safe and look great! Believe it or not there is historical proof of dental implants dating all the way back to the ancient Mayans in 660 AD. Back then they didn’t have a wonderful place like My Scottsdale Dentist. Their doctors would find and shape pieces of shells that were suitable for teeth and then hammer these pieces into a patient’s jaw. Luckily technology has advanced past this early practice!
