Dr. Johansen is a dental implant specialist here when you need a tooth replaced or to have a dental implant restored. At Johansen Dental, we diagnose, restore and maintain your crowns.
Implant dentistry is used to restore teeth after tooth loss. Tooth implants are artificial teeth with artificial tooth roots. An implant restoration can be used in the mouth to replace a single tooth. A tooth implant can also give aid by supporting restorations of complete or partial tooth loss with artificial teeth. Examples are a removable denture, an over denture, partial denture or an All-on-4.
Implant restoration can be vital to your oral health and your looks. A tooth implant has the best longevity when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Tooth loss can be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, accidents, or congenital tooth loss. They promote bone retention. This is important for eating, speech and your facial profile. Let’s not forget your smile!
An implant is made up of a titanium post that is below the gum tissue. These posts are like artificial tooth roots. Above the post is an abutment, which is the connection between the post and the crown. What you see next to your teeth and gums is the implant crown.
A dental implant restoration at Johansen Dental is a smooth process. Dental Implants here in AZ start with a diagnosis from Dr. Johansen. You will discuss your treatment plan and options. A specialist will place the tooth implant. Usually local anesthesia is all that is needed for the implant placement. The oral surgeon may place a bone graft to promote bone growth. The implant is placed below the gum tissue. A report from the specialist will be sent to Dr. J Grant Johansen when the titanium post is ready to be restored. At that time an impression will be taken, the crown is then fabricated and placed.
