Missing teeth can make chewing more difficult and eventually lead to jaw recession.
At AZ Denture Center, we can resolve these problems with dental implant surgery.
Our dentists can insert your implants and place a restoration on the same day at our Sun City West, AZ, practice.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are biocompatible titanium screws inserted into your jaw to act as tooth roots. A dental crown, bridge, or denture is placed on the implants as a permanent restoration that restores the function of your teeth.

Which Concerns Can Dental Implants Treat?
No matter how many teeth you're missing, our dentist can use implants and restorations to help you build a better-functioning smile.
Single Missing Tooth
A dental implant can support a crown to completely replace a single missing tooth.
Multiple Missing Teeth
If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, we can place two implants and a dental bridge to allow you to chew, talk, and live comfortably.
Arch of Missing Teeth
Depending on your jawbone density, we can replace an arch of teeth using two, four, or six implants.
Looking to Fill in a Gap? Request a Consultation
If you have gaps in your smile from missing teeth, implants are a great way to improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Our dental office offers free consultations, so it costs nothing to come into our practice, meet with Dr. Paul G. Culver, and see if you qualify for implant surgery. We also provide preparatory procedures from our office if you don't qualify for implant surgery. Call our Sun City West dental practice to get started:

Not Seeking Treatment
May Hurt Your Oral Health
Missing teeth can be a cosmetic concern for some, but while you may begin looking into dental implants out of a desire to improve the look of your smile, when left untreated, missing teeth can result in oral health issues. Some oral health problems that may arise include:
Your natural tooth roots give your jawbone the stimulation it needs to stay strong. The bone may atrophy from lack of stimulation when you lose a tooth. Dental implants are the only way to prevent this problem after losing teeth.
Missing teeth can cause you to exert pressure unevenly on your remaining teeth when you chew, smile, and go about your day. This uneven pressure may result in jaw misalignment and temporomandibular joint disorders.
As your remaining teeth shift to fill in the gap left behind by a missing tooth, they become misaligned. Misalignment can lead to several oral health problems, including worn-down enamel on remaining teeth because the dental arches no longer align.
Insurance and Financing for Dental Implants
Implant surgery is not covered by insurance, but our Sun City West office accepts CareCredit® financing to help you break the cost of treatment into affordable monthly payments.
The Process of Placing Dental Implants
All other dental practices in the area must wait 48 hours after implant placement to receive restorations. We create and place yours on the same day.
