Missing teeth can make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious and affect your quality of life. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers various solutions for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile. One of the most reliable tooth replacement solutions is dental implants.


At Seaman Family Dentistry, we recommend dental implants as an effective and convenient solution for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is a metal post surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line. The post fuses with the bone over time, becoming a permanent part of the mouth. An artificial tooth is attached to the implant once the post has fused with the bone. The artificial tooth is custom-made to match the surrounding teeth and blend in with the rest of the smile.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Before your procedure begins, our dentist in Flagstaff, AZ, will thoroughly evaluate your oral health to determine if you qualify for dental implants. Our dentist will also take X-rays and scans of your mouth to determine if you have enough healthy bone structure to support the implant. If you do not have enough bone density in your jaw, you may need bone grafting surgery before receiving an implant.

The implant is placed in the jawbone in the course of a minor surgical procedure. After the implant is placed, the site must heal for several months before the permanent crown can be placed. Once the implant site has healed, the dentist will attach the crown. The process can take several months to complete, but the results are worth waiting for!

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Improved Appearance

Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. You may feel embarrassed or ashamed to smile around others. With dental implants, you can smile with confidence again. They look so natural that no one will know you have an implant unless you tell them.

Better Speech

Missing teeth can affect your speech. You may find yourself slurring words or speaking with a lisp. This can cause you to become withdrawn socially. Dental implants in Flagstaff, AZ, allow you to speak clearly and confidently again.

Easier Eating

Missing teeth can make it challenging to eat certain foods. Chewing can become difficult and painful. Dental implants restore your ability to chew properly and enjoy your favorite foods.

More Comfort

Dentures and other removable appliances can be uncomfortable to wear. They can slip out of place or irritate the gums. Dental implants are permanent and comfortable. You won’t have to worry about them falling out or causing discomfort.
