Our cosmetic dentist at 24th Street Dental Biltmore understands there are many options for dental implants in Phoenix, and we take great care to carefully tailor a treatment plan, giving your smile the strength and confidence it needs.
The first thing your dentist will determine is whether or not your jawbone is healthy enough to accept the implant post.
If your jawbone is weak, a bone graft can be used to strengthen it up. The bone will strengthen over a few months, and once complete your dentist can begin the procedure. A large portion of the waiting period is simply allowing your mouth and bones to heal.
Here is some insight into your dental implants in Phoenix:
It all depends on what you’re comfortable with. Some patients prefer to leave the tooth space empty, while others insist on a temporary denture until they’re ready for the permanent implant.
For the first week you’ll want to stick with softer foods, and it’s a good idea to avoid drinking straws and/or hot beverages until you’ve sufficiently healed. It’s also extremely important to avoid smoking or drinking alcohol this week, as both activities can lead to infection.
Whether you’re missing teeth due to an accident, lifestyle, or frustrating genetics, there are options for tooth replacement that far surpass the dentures of yesteryear. This being said, always continue to practice good oral hygiene to help keep those teeth and gums strong and germ-free.

Since every case is different, we’re unable to give you an exact timeframe, but with any surgery there’s always an adjustment period. We recommend taking it easy for the first 24-48 hours following your procedure, and our patients report mild to moderate pain; this is to be expected but not feared: over-the-counter pain medications and ice packs can help soothe any inflammation that may occur.
