Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make biting, chewing, and speaking difficult, as well as undermine the appearance of your smile and facial aesthetics.

Dental implants can anchor crowns and dentures in place. These sturdy posts fill in gaps, restoring your ability to bite, chew, and smile.

Dr. Steven K. Rubisch of Avenue B Dental Group can help people all over Yuma, AZ who are missing teeth...

Dental implants

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into your jawbone and gum tissue. When in place, the implants function just like natural tooth roots, stabilizing the teeth and stimulating the jawbone to prevent atrophy. Single implants or multiple implants can be used depending on the needs of the patient.

Candidates for Dental Implants Is This Treatment Right for You?

Have Good Jawbone Density

Solid jawbone density is essential to ensuring implant-supported restorations remain stable and secure for decades.

Have Healthy Gum Tissue

Healthy gums are also essential. Because implants are anchored directly into jawbone and gum tissue, both gum recession and periodontal disease can put the success of your treatment at risk. Fortunately, we offer periodontal treatment and gum grafts to restore your candidacy. 

Do Not Smoke Or Are Willing to Quit

Tobacco products increase the risk of gum disease and other issues that can undermine the success of dental implant treatment.

The Dental Implant Process A Timeline for the Procedure

The dental implant process can take several months, with the exact time varying from patient to patient. In fact, same-day implants are also available for certain patients. This timeline should give you a general understanding of what to expect from the process.

Initial Consultation

The dental implant process can take several months, with the exact time varying from patient to patient.

Assessing Candidacy

The team at our Yuma office will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants.

Oral Surgery

The dental implants are surgically embedded into the bone and gum tissue. 3-D x-rays help us plan the optimal placement of the posts.

Healing and Osseointegration

An extended healing process is required for the implants to fuse with the bone (osseointegration). This can take several months.

Placing the Implant Restoration

The finished implant-supported crown or denture is finally snapped into place, fully restoring a patient's ability to bite and chew.

I’ve been a patient at Avenue B Dental Group for almost ten years. My teeth problems are very unique and Dr. Rubisch and his staff have helped make my youth and now teenage years as close to normal as possible. And when any mishaps with my appliance occurred we were able to call Dr. Rubisch and he fixed the problem right away. Even if he had to maybe stay late. I owe all my thanks to the Avenue B Dental Group!!
