Are you Missing Teeth?

Dr. Thor Thorson and Dr. Stephen Garner provide dental implant restorations to finish your implant treatment and fully restore your teeth and smile. Your implant restoration will be custom-made to fit your smile, and, in many cases, they can be completed in a single appointment thanks to our advanced CEREC technology. Our implant restorations are created with biocompatible titanium, which means that your body will not reject the implant and your smile will stay complete and functional. Dental implants have many benefits over traditional bridges and dentures, including improved speech, comfort and appearance.
If you are looking for a more permanent replacement for missing teeth, dental implants may be the right restoration option for you. Call us today at 928-249-3673 to schedule an appointment with our dentists at Gila Ridge Dental and learn more about dental implant restorations in Yuma, Arizona.

Dental implants replace missing or extracted teeth to restore the beauty of your smile. Dental implants look and function like your other teeth, providing more stability for your smile than other options. They are prosthetic teeth that consist of the implant post, which replicates the root of your tooth, and the implant restoration, which replaces the crown of your tooth.
Dental implant restorations are the second step in the dental implant process. After the implant post has been placed and has completed osseointegration (the healing process where the implant post merges with your jawbone), you are ready to receive a dental implant restoration. Dental implant restorations could either be a dental crown, dental bridge or complete or partial denture, depending on your smile needs. Our talented dentists will work with you to help you see which restoration would be the best for your smile and oral health. With our CEREC technology, we can often custom-make your implant restoration in a single appointment.
The processes for dental implant restorations are relatively straightforward. When our dental team is attaching a dental crown, for example, a piece known as an abutment will be screwed to the implant post to make a space for the crown, which will then be attached. Our dentists and team will make sure to provide you with post-procedure instructions.

There are a range of benefits for dental implants, including:

  • They act as permanent replacements for your missing teeth.
  • They look like natural teeth, enhancing the appearance of your smile.
  • They restore your ability to chew normally, allowing you to eat your favorite foods.
  • They make it easier to speak.
  • They are comfortable, feeling almost indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • They help prevent the bone loss or gum disease that can occur with the missing tooth space.

Dental implant restorations can make a big difference for your smile and oral health, and we are excited to help you experience the benefits of a restored smile.
