At Smile Design Dental, we want to help each of our patients love their smiles. For patients experiencing tooth loss, our South Florida dental practices offer dental implants as a treatment option to help restore your natural-looking, comfortable smile.
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Regular flossing, brushing, and preventive checkups allow some people to maintain their natural smiles for a lifetime. However, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up with our busy lifestyles!
Recent advances in dental technology have made it possible for nearly anyone to be an ideal candidate for dental implants.
Other solutions to missing teeth are dentures, crowns, and bridges. The difference between these options and dental implants is that implants are permanent and easier to maintain.
Remember that it is always vital to maintain good oral health and habits after receiving a dental implant. You want to treat your dental implant just like your original teeth!
If you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) due to injury or decay, dental implants could be the right solution to help repair your oral health and rejuvenate your smile.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Modern tooth restoration has never been better! Using a titanium post, a dental implant acts as an artificial “tooth root” to provide a secure support can permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental implants can be a comfortable, natural-looking alternative to your natural teeth. The biggest difference many patients notice is that the implant does not wobble or move. It truly does act and feel just like a natural tooth!
Types Of Dental Implants
There are two different types of dental implants: subperiosteal and endosteal. The endosteal implant is the most common because it is designed to be used instead of a dental bridge or removable dentures.
A subperiosteal implant is placed on top of the jaw bone and held together with a metal framework. This type of implant might be ideal for you if you’re unable to wear dentures.
