Dental implants attach fully functional, replacement teeth, to the jawbone, just like the roots of your natural teeth. Dental implants provide a stable and strong foundation for replacement teeth, fusing with the bone in the jaw. A custom tooth restoration is then securely anchored to the implant to create a new tooth that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth.

What is the procedure for dental implants in Scottsdale?
The first step in receiving dental implants is to consult with Dr. Kuerschner and his team at Summit Aesthetics in North Scottsdale, AZ, to create a treatment plan that will give you the results you need and desire. Once a plan of action is in place, Dr. Kuerschner will place the implant, a device made from titanium, into the jaw, where it will fuse over time, a process called osseointegration.
For the titanium implant to become securely anchored in the jawbone will require about three months. Once the bone has fused to the implant, an abutment, or connector post, is attached to the implant to connect the custom-created replacement tooth. Dr. Kuerschner will have created a model of your replacement teeth, including matching the tooth shape and color for the most natural and attractive results.
