Dental Implants in Gilbert
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you know how it affects your overall self-esteem and confidence. But did you know missing teeth could also impact your underlying bone health and structure? The year after losing a tooth, you can lose up to a quarter-inch of jaw bone resulting in changes to your face’s very structure. While bridges and traditional dentures can give you your smile back, dental implants can preserve your smile and your facial structure for years to come.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that provide a permanent anchor for replacement teeth. They feel and act just like regular teeth (that means you can get back to eating the foods you love!). Best, in qualified patients, dental implants have a 98% long-term success rate.
At Smiles by Hanna in Gilbert, AZ, Dr. Hanna Mansoor performs dental implants that lead to truly transformative effects for her patients. To learn if you qualify for dental implants, give us a call today.
Your natural tooth is composed of two important parts: the crown, which is the white and beautiful part you see when you smile, and the root. Many restorative dental procedures focus on replicating the crown, but they neglect the tooth’s root. The root of a person’s tooth sits under the gum line and stimulates the jawbone. This stimulation is what keeps the jaw and gums healthy over time.
A dental implant is designed from medical-grade titanium that actually fuses with the living bone cells in your jaw, through the process of osseointegration. This implant provides stable, long-term support for new replacement teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants are strong, aesthetically-pleasing, and can transform your smile. The greatest benefits of dental implants include:
- No slippage or shifting like traditional dentures
- More comfortable than traditional dentures or crowns
- Preserve bone quality and quantity
- Allow you to eat whatever foods you want, and get the nutrition you need
- No need for denture creams and adhesives
- After primary anesthesia is applied, the procedure is typically pain-free
- The entire procedure can be done in one day, meaning we’ll send you home with teeth in a day
- Dental implants can last a lifetime
One of our recent Smiles by Hanna patients talked about how dental implants helped him get his smile (and his steak) back.

What types of dental implants are available?
If you’re interested in dental implants, you have a few options to choose from: single implant treatments for missing teeth and all-on-four implants. Dr. Hanna will work closely with you to find the restorative dental options that will work best in your situation and budget.
Dental implant treatments for missing teeth
If you’ve lost a single tooth from an accident or periodontal disease, that tooth can be replaced with a custom-made zirconium crown or an implant treatment.
After the implant procedure, you’ll receive a temporary crown that looks and feels like a normal tooth. During your recovery period, we’ll create a more permanent crown based on the 3D-image we’ve taken of your mouth. Our state-of-the-art CT scanner allows us to take panoramic images, in the finest detail from any desired angle. Once you receive your permanent crown, it will have been created to fit perfectly in your mouth.

All-on-four dental implants or “fixed dentures”
Many of our patients benefit from all-on-four implants, which are a cutting-edge alternative to traditional dentures. All-on-four dental implants can replace a full upper and/or lower set of teeth. Patients can enjoy the feeling of “fixed dentures,” or teeth replacements that don’t shift or slip like traditional dentures.
For all-on-four implants, Dr. Hanna surgically places four implants at strategically-placed locations in your mouth. A custom-made bridge will be made for your exact mouth based on our 3D-images. Once the procedure is done, you’ll leave our office with a temporary bridge or dentures that is held securely in place by the dental implants.
If you’ve lost one or more teeth, it’s crucial to have them replaced as soon as possible. Not only can noticeable gaps affect your self-esteem and confidence, but they can also have adverse effects on your oral health. At Smiles by Hanna, Dr. Hanna Mansoor offers multiple reconstructive options to benefit qualified patients, but we recommend dental implants above all else for their truly revitalizing effects. Better yet, with the help of our on-board periodontist, we can perform the entire procedure from start to finish at our Gilbert, AZ location. If you are interested in implants, don’t wait – contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
All all-on-four implants can be done in one day from our Gilbert, AZ dental office. This leads to less appointments and time for you, and more affordable dental implants since you’re not visiting multiple providers or receiving unnecessary implants.
We pride ourselves on providing a fuss-free option to dentures. These fixed dentures can allow you to eat the foods you love, talk normally, and require less upkeep and maintenance than typical dentures. If you’re ready to learn if all-on-four dental implants will work for you, we encourage you to give our office a call today to set up a consultation.
Will the dental implant procedure hurt?
Once Dr. Hanna has confirmed that you qualify for dental implants during your consultation, your treatment will begin with surgical placement. Many patients are understandably nervous that this procedure will hurt a lot. Thankfully, that’s not so.
We’ve heard the following comments from our patients after their dental implant procedure:
“It was just a very easy experience and one that I recommend to anyone who needs this kind of service.”
“It’s been super easy. Very painless. Quicker than I expected. It was just screwing that tooth in, and now I have a tooth!”
“Very little discomfort and now that the procedure’s totally done, I’m extremely happy with everything.”
We know dental procedures can be intimidating, which is why our team spends a lot of time before your procedure explaining what you should expect. And, during the procedure itself, we start with the appropriate level of anesthesia for you to reduce your pain and discomfort.
What to expect after dental implant surgery
Once your dental implants have been successfully placed, your mouth will need several months to fully deal. During this time, your dental implants will form a strong and powerful bond with your natural tissue. Dr. Hanna will discuss the best ways to care for your implants, but the most important rules include eating the right foods and abstaining from tobacco use.
After this process is complete, we’ll use cutting-edge 3D-images to create the highest quality restorations that will fit right into your implants. These dental implants will look and feel just like normal teeth.
And their care will be the same—no denture cups necessary! You’ll brush and care for your teeth as normal, making sure to get professional cleanings every six months to ensure your implant’s longevity.
