If you are missing one or more teeth, you might already be aware that when it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants are considered the best way to restore both form and function.

But the most significant advantage of dental implants is one that many people are not even aware. Dental implants can preserve periodontal health.

If you are a Yuma resident with one or more missing teeth and considering dental implants, read on for more information about the benefits of dental implants.

Dental Implants Can Save Your Periodontal Health—And They Can Save You Money!

If you are missing just one or two teeth, it might be tempting to let it go. But when there are spaces in your mouth left by missing teeth, the health of your other teeth is compromised.

You may save yourself the dental implant investment today, but what about the additional dental work you will need in the future? With teeth missing, your remaining teeth will begin to shift and move, causing a host of other issues, such as bite problems, uneven wear, and periodontal issues.

If you are missing all your teeth, you might opt for dentures to spend less money up front. But what most people don’t think about is the number of adjustments your dentures will need in the years to come.

Without tooth roots to stimulate your jawbone, it will deteriorate over the years. These changes in your jawbone will cause your once snug-fitting dentures to become loose and need adjusting. It becomes a vicious cycle for denture wearers.

Dental implants placed into the jawbone. Your body continues to send nutrients to the area, stimulating the bone. Your dental implants will be just as healthy years down the road as they were initially. Your gums and jawbone remain healthy and robust.

Once dental implants placed, they can last for many years with proper care—costing you nothing after the initial investment except for routine dental care.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
