Dr. Beckham on Dental Implants Read Transcript
Implant dentistry is really here to stay obviously, and it's so amazing to see the changes in dentistry. When I started back in 1981, implants were kind of an iffy thing. Would they work? Would they not work? Nowadays, there's no ifs, ands, or buts. They work. They are actually the most successful procedure we have in dentistry, which is kind of hard to believe. All implants are made out of type grade five titanium; all of them.
There are different types of implants that are used for different things—specific things—but if you say,
When it comes to tooth replacement options, dental implants are the gold standard.

What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that take the place of your natural tooth roots. The highly trained dental team at Beckham Dental will gently place your dental implants into your jaw and complete your smile with an dental implant restoration. Typically, a solid replacement dental crown is placed on top of a single implant, but we can also use implants to support whole arches of teeth.
Dental implants are as stable as your natural teeth and can last you for the rest of your life with proper care and regular checkups at Beckham Dental.
Dental Implant Options at Beckham Dental
Single Dental Implant – A single implant can replace a single missing tooth. We’ll complete your dental implant with a strong, natural-looking zirconia crown, sometimes the same day it is placed.
Mini Dental Implants – Mini implants are smaller than traditional implants, so the procedure is less invasive. Mini implants require less bone mass for support than conventional dental implants.
All-on-4 Implants – This revolutionary technique allows us to replace an entire arch of teeth using only four dental implants. The back dental implant on each side is strategically placed at an angle to make the most use of the available bone mass. A full arch of replacement teeth are then attached to the dental implants, and your new smile is complete that day.
All-on-6 Implants – This is the same procedure as All-on-4 but uses six dental implants to add security. You can think of All-on-6 as a chair with six legs instead of four for maximum stability.
Implant-Retained Dentures – We can use implants to hold your denture in place with ball attachments. The balls fit into the underside of the custom denture to give you a secure fit.
Implant-Supported Dentures – For this solution, we use a bar to hold your denture in place. The bar runs along the implants and allows much of the chewing pressure to go to your jawbone instead of your gums. Talk to Cave Creek, AZ dentist Dr. Beckham about which option will best fit your needs.
