At Smiles by Hanna, one of the most exciting services that we have to offer our Gilbert patients are dental implants. Dr. Hanna Mansoor places and restores implants in our practice so that you don’t have to be referred elsewhere for treatment.

What do implants have to offer, you ask? Plenty. They’re now considered the standard of care when it comes to long-term tooth replacement. Made from biocompatible materials that set directly inside of your mouth alongside your remaining teeth, implants deliver today’s most advanced form of restorative care. Here are a few reasons to consider getting them:

Implants are Non-Invasive to Other Teeth

A dental implant mimics the structure of your natural teeth. That means when the artificial root (implant) is set into your jaw, it doesn’t require alteration or reshaping of the teeth adjacent to it like a traditional bridge would. This aspect of implants makes them healthier for your smile overall while extending the lifespan of your remaining teeth.

They Last for Life

Implants have an extremely high success rate, close to 98%. When properly maintained and cared for, you can expect your implant to be with you for the rest of your life. This biocompatible design sets directly into the jaw. The design allows the bone to integrate with the surface, fusing it permanently within the mouth.

Replace as Many Teeth as Necessary

You wouldn’t think it’s possible, but we can use as few as four implants to replace all of your teeth at one time. Or, Dr. Mansoor can place an individual implant for single missing teeth. It’s all because implants are extremely durable and capable of withstanding pressure even greater than your natural smile.

Some of the types of implant restoration that we offer in our Gilbert, AZ practice include:

Single implants with crowns — The traditional dental implant is predominantly used for replacing individual missing teeth. Once your implant is set into the bone, we allow the site to heal and then place a custom porcelain crown on top. Ultimately, we don’t want anyone to be able to tell the difference between your new “tooth” and the former one!

Pairs of implants with a bridge — In lieu of wearing a removable partial denture, we can use pairs of implants to support multi-tooth bridges. You won’t need an individual implant for each tooth that’s missing! A conventional bridge relies on natural teeth to support it, implant anchored bridges offer an alternative for multiple missing teeth.

Implant supported dentures — A removable overdenture uses 2-4 implants for stabilization, while a permanent hybrid design can use as few as four.

Ask About the Smiles for Vets Program

Did you know that only about 8% of US veterans receive care from the VA system? This statistic is one that has led to many veterans living in pain due to chronic illnesses and infections.

To give back, implant manufacturers like the brand ids is giving back through their “Smiles for Vets Program”. This program provides dentists like Dr. Hanna Mansoor with free implants and healing abutments when provided to a US veteran. Ids has made it possible to eliminate a huge cost factor involved in the implant process. It’s just one way that our Gilbert, AZ practice can help honor and care for those who have protected our country.
