A permanent solution to replace missinG Teeth. Get your smile back today…
Dental implants are an excellent way to replace a missing tooth or to provide a more fixed solution to the need for dentures. For those with missing teeth, dental implants can provide a fully restored smile, with only limited surgical intervention. Dental implants also offer excellent support, as well as stability, for newly-installed dental hardware and appliances.
Dental implants consist of titanium screws which are surgically inserted into the jawbone where there is a missing tooth, or in the case of All-on-4 implants, in four strategic locations across the jaw bone. Once the screws have been inserted the false teeth attached to the titanium screw, it acts as a false root for the tooth or teeth. Dental implants offer the benefit of being strong and durable, meaning they can last for many years.
Benefits of Dental Implants :
- Replacing one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- Resolving joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
- Restoring a patient’s confident smile.
- Restoring chewing, speech, and digestion.
- Restoring or enhancing facial tissues.
- Supporting a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
Reasons for dental implants :
- Improved speech and digestion
- Ability to chew and bite naturally
- Protection for your healthy teeth and bone
- Restored confidence
Dental implants may offer many more benefits for patients than simply replacing missing teeth. From restoring their confidence and self-esteem to improving their overall health, implants can dramatically improve your everyday life.
What exactly are dental implants…how do they work?
The American Dental Association (ADA) considers dental implants a safe, effective, and long term solution for patients to replace missing teeth.
In its simplest form, a dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone below the gums. Once the dental implant completes healing below the gums for 2-6 months, the implant can then be uncovered from the gums and the final tooth can start to be made and a replacement tooth can be attached to the implant, providing a strong, durable and entirely natural looking tooth.
Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or even help to stabilize and support an existing denture from moving and causing discomfort.
If you are missing all your teeth a novel treatment known as All-on-4 may be a treatment suited best for you. This is when 4-6 dental implants can help to support a full jaw of permanent teeth.
How soon can I get a dental implant?
The process for installing most dental implants is straight-forward. If you have already been missing the tooth for some time and ready to start the process, the dental implant can be placed the very same day as your first appointment with Florida Dental Solutions.
If you have a broken tooth that may need to be extracted, with new technology it is possible to place the dental implant immediately during the same visit as the extraction of the bad tooth. Other times, your doctor may suggest you first have the tooth extracted and have a bone graft placed. A bone graft will help to heal the area where the tooth was taken out quicker and provide a more solid foundation to allow the dental implant to be placed at a future date.
The process of having dental implants may seem intimidating, but it is more painless and easier than you may think. At Florida Dental Solutions we take every precaution necessary to make sure you are comfortable. During the procedure you are completely numb and will not feel any pain.
