The best dental implants Tampa has to offer! Getting dental implants is easier than you might think. You can now choose between All on Four Implants, Traditional Implants, or Zygomatic Implants.
Treatment is usually carried out in the office under local anesthetic or light sedation for optimal comfort. Often, a dental implant can be placed at the same time as tooth removal. A temporary crown can be attached so that the patient doesn’t have to leave the office with missing teeth.
The process is usually completed in two phases. In the first stage, the dental implant (a small titanium device shaped like a tooth root) is placed into the jaw bone. A period of time (usually 8 weeks is allowed) for the implant to attach to the bone, a process known as osseointegration.
The second phase takes place after osseointegration. A post that extends above the gumline is added, and a series of impressions and bite registrations are made. A replacement tooth (or crown) is custom made in the laboratory and attached to the post with cement or a tiny screw. A single tooth or a full set of teeth can be replaced using this technique
