Dental Implants for our Prescott AZ patients are the best thing that’s happened in dentistry. They reunite our patients with something they’ve lost and are truly the most functional option when it comes to tooth replacement. Many patients are missing part or all of their teeth and feel stuck having to wear dentures or cause damage to their healthy teeth for porcelain bridgework.
The process involves placing a titanium post into the bone that once supported healthy tooth roots. The procedure takes about one hour and is much less traumatic than having a tooth extracted. Also, recovery from the implant procedure is typically easier than recovering from an extraction.
The most predictable scenario is to place an implant in healed, healthy bone. Patients must wait a minimum of three months after an extraction with bone graft (4-5 months without) before proceeding with implant treatment. After placement, the body takes about four months to adequately stabilize the implant before proceeding with a crown, bridge, or denture anchorage. In certain circumstances, an implant may be predictably placed at the time of tooth extraction, with or without bone grafting.
There are several options to consider. Learn more about how Prescott Dental Arts can improve your life with dental implant treatments by selecting from the procedures above. Also, learn about the process by watching the video below:

Before & After Example 1: This patient had severe decay under several crowns on his upper teeth. Extractions were needed, and the patientchose to restore his teeth with porcelain crowns attached to several implants. He is seen with one implant bridge in the front, two regular crowns, and two crowns with implant attachments in the back.
Before & After Example 2: This patient came to Dr. Herbert with a desire to replace his upper partial denture with something more stable. For hiscase, we placed 4 implants to replace the front upper teeth, and the patient chose to have a denture that is fixed into place with screws. He was also extremely satisfied to no longer have metal covering his palate.

“My previous dentist said a tooth with a crown was too damaged to save and recommended an implant procedure. I went to Dr. Herbert for a second opinion and was happy when he said the tooth could be saved. He then went to work and I walked out with a beautiful new crown in less than two hours. His office has state of art equipment. He and his assistant worked together quickly and smoothly. Altogether a great experience!”
“Just received a composite filling. Dr. Herbert and his assistant Marissa did a top notch job. The procedure was totally painless and the filling was polished smooth and blended in perfectly with the tooth. There was no hot or cold sensitivity afterword. Reasonable fees as well. The staff is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Prescott Dental Arts.”
