Dental Implants

Are you too conscious about that one missing teeth that are stopping you from bringing out your real smile? Missing teeth may diminish your confidence making it difficult to smile and talk freely as you used to. With new and innovate advances in implant dentistry, dentists today can replace and restore your missing teeth with titanium built dental implants. Our dentist in Florida has several years of experience helping patients restore teeth with dental implants.

How do implants help restore your missing teeth?

Dental implants are a popular method of replacing missing teeth. Its design and function are effective to replace missing teeth and can easily blend with other teeth. Made out of titanium metal, the restorative device offers extreme durability and stability. The screw-like device can be surgically placed in the jawbone to replace your missing natural root giving your artificial enamel a strong base and foundation.

Why is it important to replace missing teeth?

Replacing missing teeth is crucial for good oral health. Every tooth plays a vital role in performing the functions of the mouth. They help us to chew, talk, grind food and pronounce without difficulty. Gaps between teeth can cause shifting of teeth leading to misalignments and bite problems. Hence, it is important to have missing teeth replaced with teeth replacement options.

What is the process involved in getting an implant?

Generally, there are three phases to restoring your missing roots.

  • The first phase involves the surgical placement of the implant into the jawbone. The dentist makes an incision on the gums, places the screw-like implant into the jawbone, and sutures the gum tissues around the new implant.
  • The next phase of the implant placement process is the osseointegration phase. During this phase, the implant is allowed to properly fuse into the jawbone. This may take up to a few months.
  • The last phase is where the dentist completes the implant by crowning it with an enamel restoration. This may be a bridge or a dental crown. Usually, the dentist would have the appropriate restoration selected (based on the color, size, and shape) and arranged for the patient before placing the implant.
