Giving You a Confident Smile with Dental Implants

Ouch! Tooth loss can happen in several ways, such as gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, or facial trauma. Tooth loss is irreversible, but it isn’t irreplaceable. The most essential way to resolve and replace tooth decay is dental implants. It is important to note that implants do more than just replace your teeth. In fact, they help strengthen your jaw structure, provide the ability to chew food, and give you more reasons to smile.

As mentioned earlier, dental implants can help improve your jaw structure, and restore your ability to chew food. But there are a plethora of reasons why dental implants are beneficial for you. 

  • Can help restore your speech
  • Unlike traditional treatments, dental implants are more comfortable
  • The dental crowns can be cared for just like your natural teeth
  • Dental implant posts emulate the roots of your natural teeth by stimulating your jaw bone

After determining that dental implants are right for your tooth loss, it’s important to understand the procedure before stopping into your next appointment at Florida Prosthodontics.

First Consultation

First and foremost, our team needs to determine if dental implant surgery is the right choice for you. You’ll undergo an oral exam, which allows us to identify and examine the area of the tooth loss. Next, we’ll take digital x-rays, which enable us to see the condition of your jaw bone and determine if implants can be placed. Once that oral exam is complete, your x-ray photos will determine which treatment plan is best for you

Dental Implant Surgery

Before your dental implant surgery, you’ll be placed under a local anesthetic. Florida Prosthodontics also provides sedation, which can offer comfort and relaxation during the treatment. Once you are comfortable, we’ll begin by making small incisions in our gums, which gives us access to your jawbone. Next, holes are then drilled into the jawbone, and the implant posts are placed inside. Once your final teeth are ready to be placed, the implant crown is then screwed onto the posts. 

The treatment is versatile, and can be used to replace a single tooth or many teeth. The benefits that dental implant surgery offers have unimaginable results.
