Dental Implant News for Surprise AZ : The 14 Benefits of Dental Implants, PART 3

This three-part article series explains the top 14 benefits of dental implants as a fantastic solution to single and multiple tooth loss, as well as edentulism.


Welcome to the final installment of this three-part article series on the many incredible benefits of dental implants as a solution to single, multiple and total tooth loss. Previously, in Part 2, we spoke to a panel of dental implant surgeons in Surprise AZ and they explained the following five benefits:

6. Dental implants increase chewing function and bite strength, enabling patients to enjoy a much healthier and more varied diet.

7. Dental implants provide complete support for one’s new teeth, which increases oral comfort and a feeling of normal, natural bite function.

8. Dental implants improve speech and enunciation, and forget that annoying clicking sound traditionally associated with dentures!

9. Dental implants promote healthy bone structure and in doing so, help to retain one’s natural youthful facial contours and skin.

10. Dental implants have a better success rate than alternative technology and they tend to last far longer, too.

Let’s take a look at the four final benefits to wrap up this series.

The 14 Benefits of Dental Implants, Continued…





11.Dental Implants Can Give Patients New Teeth in One Day

“There are modern sophisticated implant protocols capable of giving patients, who previously didn’t have any natural teeth at all, a complete set of new and non-removable teeth in just one day, with one surgical appointment,” says a Arizona dental implant dentist. “You can literally walk into the dental office in the morning without teeth and then out again in the afternoon with teeth. The most popular of these techniques is known as the All-on-4 and it has succeeded in changing the lives of tens of thousands of previously edentulous (toothless) patients from all over America.”

12.Dental Implants Support Replacement Teeth that Feel Natural

No more bulky dentures that slip around when eating and speaking: dental implants support new teeth that feel natural, won’t cause pain when eating and are fixed and non-removable.

13.No Tooth Decay, No Root Canals, No Tooth Pain

The new teeth you will be given are not vulnerable to bacteria, which means that they can’t become decayed, they’ll never require root canals and they certainly won’t cause you pain the way your failing natural teeth used to.

“The teeth supported by dental implants are made from a combination of materials, including ceramics and prosthetics and these are unaffected by bacterial activity and decay,” says a Surprise dental implant surgeon. “This is quite beneficial because it negates the need for any kind of restorative work in the future and it also means that you’re new teeth will remain beautiful and healthy-looking as long as you care for them properly. Just make sure you still brush and floss regularly, because that will be important for maintaining the health of the underlying gums.”

14.Dental Implants Improve Medical Health


Dental implants improve your general health in a myriad of ways. You’re able to eat better and more comfortably, which means that you get the nutrition you need to support a strong, healthy body. You’re able to smile openly and with far more confidence, which has a fantastic impact upon your self-esteem and psychological health. Arizona residents who have had failing teeth and/or dentures replaced with dental implants simply experience a much greater quality of life and with a healthy mouth, the impacts on general health are many and manifold.

Dental Implant News for Arizona: The 14 Benefits of Dental Implants, PART 2

This three-part article series explains the top 14 benefits of dental implants as a fantastic solution to single and multiple tooth loss, as well as edentulism.


Welcome to the second installment of this three-part article series on the many incredible benefits of dental implants as a teeth replacement solution. In Part 1, we spoke to a panel of dental implant surgeons in Arizona, who presented the following five benefits:

1. Dental implants are permanently anchored in the jawbone, providing patients with fixed, comfortable and non-removable teeth.

2. Dental implants preserve jawbone health, promoting long-term oral health and one’s youthful facial contours.

3. Dental implants have a better cosmetic outcome, giving patients a more beautiful and natural-looking smile.

4. Dental implants improve confidence and self-esteem, which has a dramatic impact upon all aspects of a patient’s life, especially socially.

5. Dental implants improve psychological health and often inspire patients to improve upon other areas of their life.

6. Dental Implants Increase Chewing Function

“Because a patient’s new tooth or teeth are supported by the jawbone, as is the case with natural healthy teeth, they will find it much easier and more comfortable to eat,” explains Sun City dental implant surgeon. “Dentures are supported by the gums, which can make mealtimes a painful experience, since your gums were never intended to help you eat. Dental implants improve bite function and strength and this permits patients to enjoy most of their favorite foods.”

7. Dental Implants Increase Oral Comfort

With your new teeth being supported by the jawbone and not by your gums, which can become inflamed and painful as a result, patients will find that dental implants feel far more natural and comfortable. This also creates a sensation of responsiveness in the mouth – as though you can feel your teeth when you bite down – and this is something removable dentures and similar dental appliances cannot mimic.

8.    Dental Implants Improve Speech and Enunciation

“Because your teeth are anchored in your mouth and don’t move and slip around when you talk, you’ll find speech and clear enunciation far easier,” says a Arizona dental implant dentist. “Imagine trying to talk with a bulky plastic set of teeth in your mouth: your speech can become quite muddled. Dentures also have the nasty habit of clicking when you open and close your mouth, so dental implant patients can look forward to clear, concise and confidence speech.”

9. Dental Implants Support Facial Structures to Reduce Prematurely Aged Appearance

When you lose teeth, the supporting jawbone tends to atrophy and waste away. This causes the loss of support of the facial skin, which can sag, sink in and wrinkle as a result. Because dental implant facilitate excellent jawbone health, they maintain good support for the facial structure and tissues, which in turn helps to prevent premature aging.

10. Dental Implants Have a Better Success Rate Than Alternatives

“Single dental implant procedures typically have a 98% success rate, while full mouth reconstruction comes in at 95% over a period of 10 years,” says a Sun City dental implant surgeon. “This is a fantastic success rate for any procedure and, given that implants can also last decades to a lifetime if looked after properly, is without competition from any teeth replacement alternative.”

Dental Implant News for Sun City Grand: The 14 Benefits of Dental Implants, PART 1

This three-part article series explains the top 14 benefits of dental implants as a fantastic solution to single and multiple tooth loss, as well as edentulism.

Just ask any good dentist in Arizona: dental implants are considered the most sophisticated technology for addressing the loss of natural teeth. These titanium devices are gently placed in the bone of the jaw to provide a rigid support for a new ceramic tooth or prosthetic set of teeth and the outcomes for patients are a confident smile, good bite function and greater oral comfort.

In this three-part article series, a panel of experienced dental implant surgeons in Sun City Grand will be walking us through the unparalleled benefits of this 21st Century technology. Armed with this greater awareness, it is hoped that more patients will opt for implants rather than wasting time, money and precious health on inferior teeth replacement devices, such as removable dentures and partials.

The 14 Benefits of Dental Implants

1. Dental Implants are Permanently Anchored Implant Teeth

Dental Implants Arizona
Unlike traditional teeth replacement appliances, dental implant support teeth (or sets of teeth) that are permanently anchored and non-removable. This eliminates many of the challenges that are typically associated with dentures and partials, such as loose and uncomfortable teeth, painful inflamed gums and difficulty with eating and speaking.

2. Dental Implants Preserve Jaw Bone Health

“Implants assume the role of the missing tooth root or roots,” explains a dental implant dentist in Arizona. “By doing this, they channel the eating forces into the underlying jawbone and as a result, this bone is stimulated and exercised. What this does is promote the health of the jawbone, keeping it bulky and strong. This also maintains one’s youthful facial contours and appearances.”

3. Dental Implants Have a Better Cosmetic Outcome

Implants support replacement teeth (ceramic crowns) or sets of teeth (prosthetic bridges) that are expertly fabricated to closely resemble natural teeth. Because these replacement teeth are supported by the jawbone (via dental implants), their construction doesn’t need to be bulky, as is the case with removable dentures, which rely on their bulk for stability in the mouth. This provides much better and more natural cosmetic outcomes for the patient.

4.    Dental Implants Improve Confidence and Self-esteem

Dental Implants Sun City Grand
“More beautiful smile aesthetics and teeth that look natural and healthy provide patients with much better confidence and self-esteem,” says a Sun City Grand dental implant surgeon. “Dental implants can literally revolutionize the way patients feel about themselves and this has a dramatic effect upon their social and professional lives.”

5. Dental Implants Improve Psychological Health

Better confidence, a healthier self-esteem and a greater quality of life promote better mental and psychological health.

“One of the most incredible benefits of having old, failing teeth replaced with attractive, functional and non-removable implants is the new lease on life it provides patients,” says an Arizona dental implant dentist. “Armed with a beautiful, comfortable and natural-looking smile, many patients have gone on to change other things about their lifestyles, simply because they find themselves in a much better place physically, emotionally and psychologically. They’ll improve their diet, lose weight and get more involved with friends and family: it’s a whole life make-over!”

Dental Implant News for Sun City Grand: Newer Procedure LESS Expensive Than Older Predecessors, PART 5

This five-part article series explains how the newer “All-on-4” dental implant protocol manages to vastly undercut the cost of more traditional techniques for full mouth reconstruction.


 Welcome to the final installment of this five-part article series on how the “All-on-4” dental implant protocol makes it possible for Sun City Grand residents to save tens of thousands of dollars on the cost of new permanent teeth!

Dental Implants Sun City Grand
We’ve covered a lot of ground in this article series, so far. We’ve explained how the “All-on-4” works and how it compares with traditional dental implant protocols and we’ve fully explored most of the ways this revolutionary procedure can save patients an incredible amount of money:

• It only requires four implants per jaw, as opposed to six, eight or even ten (Part 2).

• It typically avoids the need for bone grafting surgery, which saves patients thousands of dollars as well as several months in recovery (Part 3).

• It only requires a single treatment planning phase, a single surgery and a single recovery period for patients to get new teeth, as opposed to multiple (Part 4).

We just have one more area to explore and that’s the quality of lifestyle experienced by patients once they’ve had their beautiful, permanent teeth placed. And so, without further ado, let’s conclude this five-part article series with the following section…

The “All-on-4” Saves Patients on the Cost of Follow-up Procedures and Repeated Restoration

If done by an experienced dental implant surgeon in Sun City Grand, implants can pretty much be regarded as a one-time expense and a very valuable investment in your quality of life, for the rest of your life. Made from exceptionally durable and long-lasting materials, “All-on-4” implant-supported bridges have the ability to last a lifetime and to serve patients just as a healthy set of natural teeth might have served them.

This not only boasts innumerable benefits - such as a better quality of life, better bite function, better nutrition, greater confidence and healthier self-esteem – but it also means greater day-to-day savings, especially on maintenance. “All-on-4” teeth are cared for just like natural teeth and, if done so properly, they won’t typically require restoration. In fact, dental implants can last you a lifetime without the need for any additional dental work or costs.

“All-on-4” Implants and Removable Dentures

All on 4 Dental Implants
This also sets “All-on-4” dental implants far apart from traditional removable dentures. The Sun City Grand residents who do wear dentures will tell you that they are forced to cover several repeat expenses, not least of all the need to have their dentures refitted every few years or so as a consequence of jawbone atrophy. Then there’s the cost of adhesives, anesthetic gels, overnight soaking solutions and other bits and bobs – all salt in the wound of the daily challenges, discomforts and embarrassments they are forced to endure.

But, this is all just an aside. The core focus of this five-part article series was to highlight the incredible differences between the “All-on-4” dental implant technique and its older predecessors. It’s not every day a sophisticated technology comes along that’s LESS EXPENSIVE than it’s older alternatives. This isn’t true of the “All-on-4.” With only four dental implants, one surgical appointment, one recovery and no bone grafting, this revolutionary procedure can easily save Sun City Grand residents up to $45,000 on the cost of beautiful new teeth.

Now just imagine what you’d do with that money!

Dental Implant News Scottsdale: Newer Procedure LESS Expensive Than Older Predecessors, PART 4

This five-part article series explains how the newer “All-on-4” dental implant protocol manages to vastly undercut the cost of more traditional techniques for full mouth reconstruction.

Overcoming the need for bone grafting surgery is a major benefit offered by “All-on-4” dental implants and it’s one of two reasons full mouth reconstruction (getting a brand new set of permanent teeth) is possible in just one surgical appointment!

Welcome to the fourth installment of this five-part article series on how the “All-on-4” dental implant protocol makes it possible for Scottsdale residents to save tens of thousands of dollars on the cost of new permanent teeth! We ended off Part 3 with the above-mentioned excerpt, which leads us into the second of two reasons it’s possible to get new teeth in just one day and the third way the “All-on-4” is thriftier than traditional dental implant techniques…

The “All-on-4” Saves Patients on the Cost of Surgery, Surgeon’s Time and Associated Resources

In Part 2, the very first “All-on-4” cost saving was explained and that was that the procedure only required four dental implants (per jaw) in order to provide Scottsdale residents with a complete set of teeth. What we didn’t mention at the time was that capability offers patients yet another benefit and another massive cost savings…

Traditional surgical protocols would typically require anywhere between 12 and 20 implants to provide patients with new teeth. However, in order to safely place this number of implants, Scottsdale dental implant surgeons would have to break the entire procedure down into a number of smaller and more manageable surgeries.

Can you imagine having 20 dental implants placed in a single sitting?

Not only would the risk of post-operative infection and implant failure be unacceptably high, but also recovery would be a monstrously painful affair. And so, patients signing up for traditional dental implant procedures would be required to undergo a series of surgeries – usually over the duration of 12 to 18 months - in which a smaller number of implants would be placed. The patient would then be required to recover and allow their jawbones to heal before the next set of implants could be placed.

One surgery on its own costs a lot of money, but that’s not the only expense faced by patients. With each surgery comes the need for additional X-rays, post-operative appointments and further treatment planning. In the end, it’s quite easy to see how the costs of traditional dental implant surgery stack up really quickly.


The “All-on-4” Difference: One Surgery, One Set of Expenses

With only four dental implants required to provide a patient with a new set of teeth, the “All-on-4” is easily done in a single surgical appointment: One treatment planning phase, one surgery, one recovery and one phase of follow-up consultations. Instead of covering the costs of multiple surgeries and all the associated bills that comes with, Scottsdale residents only have to do it all once AND – to boot – they get their
beautiful new teeth right away!

“All-on-4” Dental Implants: Newer Procedure LESS Expensive Than Older Predecessors, PART 3

This five-part article series explains how the newer “All-on-4” dental implant protocol manages to vastly undercut the cost of more traditional techniques for full mouth reconstruction.


All on 4 Dental Implants
 Previously, in many cases, patients would schedule an appointment with a dental implant surgeon desperate for an alternative solution after wearing partial or full removable dentures for many years. What they wouldn’t realize is – as a consequence of denture wearing - just how extensive the damage to their jawbone is and that this would typically require an additional surgery to correct before they can even be considered for implants.

Welcome to the third installment of this five-part article series on how the “All-on-4” dental implant protocol makes it possible for Sun City residents to save tens of thousands of dollars on the cost of a beautiful new set of permanent teeth! The opening paragraph is an excerpt from Part 2, which leads us nicely into the second way the “All-on-4” technique saves patients an incredible amount of money. Let’s jump right in…

The “All-on-4” Saves Patients on the Cost of Bone Grafting Surgery

One of the greatest problems associated with wearing dentures is jawbone atrophy. As we can see in the picture above, over time, the jawbone physically wastes away and this happens because the patient no longer has natural tooth roots to stimulate it and maintain its bulk and strength.

Few Sun City residents understand this very important fact when they have their failing dentition replaced with removable dentures, but your tooth roots play a fundamental role in keeping your jawbone healthy and strong. By transmitting the eating forces into the underlying bone, they help to keep it “exercised”. Bone tissue, just like muscle tissue, needs this stimulation to stay strong, or else it just becomes resorbed by the body in a process called “atrophy”.

This brings us to a crucial problem faced by patients and dental implant surgeons in Sun City:

As it was explained in the opening paragraph, in many cases, patients would have worn dentures for such a long period of time that their jawbones would have deteriorated too much for traditional dental implant procedures to be considered viable treatment options without first performing a bone grafting procedure. And so, the first step in treatment would involve a terribly invasive, painful and costly surgery and a lengthy recovery period before a patient could even begin thinking about getting dental implants.

Thankfully, this all changed with the advent of “All-on-4” dental implants, which was specifically developed by Dr. Paulo Malo and his team to overcome this hurdle in the treatment of edentulous (toothless) and near-edentulous patients.

The “All-on-4” Difference: Strategic Implant Layout Avoids Need for Bone Grafting

Sun City Dental Implant Surgeons
With the “All-on-4,” the layout of dental implants is carefully determined so as to maximize the support offered by the available jawbone volume, even in patients who have been wearing dentures for many, many years:

• Two implants are inserted in the front portion of the jaw, where the bone is more resistant to atrophy and is therefore typically bulkier.

• Another two implants are inserted at an angle towards the back of the jaw and this angulation provides them with greater stability and support.

Together, these four implants are almost always sufficient to provide a rigid platform to which a customized dental bridge can be attached.

What this means is that most denture-wearing Arizona residents can be considered candidates for “All-on-4” dental implants, which enables them to get a beautiful new set of teeth without the need for costly bone grafting surgery beforehand. This saves these people a lot of pain and many thousands of dollars! It also eliminates the several months of recovery that are needed before the implants can be placed.

Overcoming the need for bone grafting surgery is a major benefit offered by “All-on-4” dental implants and it’s one of two reasons full mouth reconstruction is possible in just one surgical appointment! We’ll explore the second reason in Part 4, coming next week…

Dental Implant News Arizona: Newer Implant Protocol LESS Expensive Than Older Predecessors, PART 2

This five-part article series explains how the newer “All-on-4” dental implant protocol manages to vastly undercut the cost of more traditional techniques for full mouth reconstruction.

All on 4 dental implants
Welcome to the second installment of this five-part article series on how the revolutionary “All-on-4” dental implant protocol makes it possible for Arizona residents to save tens of thousands of dollars on the cost of new, permanent teeth!

Gum disease and tooth loss is a major problem that affects the majority of Americans over the age of 50, and countless others before. The traditional solution to tooth loss has been removable dentures, but dental implants are known to be far more sophisticated, comfortable, aesthetic and comfortable.

Historically, however, the cost of dental implants has greatly deterred Arizona residents from that visit to the cosmetic dentist’s office and while this may have been warranted before, it isn’t any longer with the availability of the “All-on-4” dental implant protocol!

As we explained in Part 1, the “All-on-4” is a revolutionary dental implant procedure that makes it possible for patients to get a beautiful new set of permanent teeth with just one surgical appointment with a specially trained Arizona dental implant dentist. The question we now want to answer is how this procedure saves patients such an incredible amount of money.

So, without further ado, let’s begin!

The “All-on-4” Saves Patients on the Cost of Dental Implants

As the name suggests, the “All-on-4” dental implant technique only requires four dental implants per jaw to provide Arizona residents with a new implant-supported bridge, which looks and functions like a complete set of teeth. In the worst-case scenario of a patient requiring full mouth reconstruction, they’re looking at a maximum of eight dental implants.

Here’s the amazing difference: Traditional dental implant procedures could require as many as six, eight or even ten implants per jaw! So in the worst-case scenario, you’d be looking at having to cover the costs of as many as 20 dental implants, just to get a complete set of teeth again! And so, when you consider the cost of an individual implant, which is several thousand dollars, it’s very easy to understand why patients would rather opt to have dentures fitted, instead of fork out the money to undergo exorbitantly costly implant surgery.

Thankfully, the “All-on-4” secures Arizona residents much better and less risky surgical outcomes with fewer dental implants and already, a lesser cost. But, this is really only the tip of the iceberg as far as cost is concerned.

Previously, in many cases, patients would schedule an appointment with a dental implant surgeon desperate for an alternative solution after wearing partial or full removable dentures for many years. What they wouldn’t realize is – as a consequence of denture wearing - just how extensive the damage to their jawbone is and that this would typically require an additional surgery to correct before they can even be considered for implants… but we’ll explore this point in Part 3, coming next week!
