Phoenix Dentist Has Solution for Patients With Missing Teeth

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - October 31, 2015) - Dr. Thomas Mattern, a leading Phoenix dentist, is reminding patients that they can part with their removable dentures and improve their oral health.

Dr. Mattern, who operates Desert Dentistry, provides dental implants for patients struggling with missing teeth or removable dentures. The Phoenix dentist restores implants with individual crowns and full arches of permanent, natural-looking teeth. "Missing teeth causes oral health and overall health issues and can ruin a person's smile," Dr. Mattern said. "With dental implants, it is possible to get your smile back that is close to the function of your natural teeth."

Dental implants are titanium rods that naturally fuse to the jawbone and act as tooth roots. Once the implants have joined with the bone, they can be loaded with a restoration. In some cases, Dr. Mattern and his team can place a dental implant the same day the failing tooth is extracted.

Dr. Mattern said dental implants can now be placed with an extremely high success rate and provide about 90 percent of the chewing force of natural teeth. The office encourages patients with removable dentures to consider dental implants to increase their food options and to eliminate the risk of their dentures falling out while they speak or eat.

"The smile directly affects your mental happiness and confidence, and the teeth directly affect your overall health," Dr. Mattern said. "Dental implants can give you both a beautiful smile again and improve your quality of life."

Desert Dentistry is a multi-office practice that offers general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, dental implants, mini dental implants, short-term orthodontics, sleep apnea treatment, same-day emergency services and TMJ treatment.

Dr. Mattern is a 1988 graduate of Creighton University School of Dentistry and has taken hours of continuing education to provide his patients quality, state-of-the-art care. Dr. Mattern graduated from the Las Vegas Institute of Cosmetology program and holds a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Mattern also has been voted the Best Dentist in East Valley and the Best Dentist in Ahwatukee.

He holds memberships with the Academy of General Dentistry, American Dental Association, International Dental Implant Association and the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Dr. Mattern takes pride in contributing to his community in many ways, including closing his offices on Veterans Day to offer free dental treatment for veterans, working at St. Vincent de Paul's dental clinic every month, working with Give Kids A Smile and flying to Atoyac, Mexico to work in the Latin World Ministries dental clinic for the less fortunate.

Desert Dentistry's four convenient locations offer patients free dental exams and X-rays during initial visits and provides affordable care options.
