Today’s cutting-edge cosmetic procedures have many ways of restoring and enhancing beautiful smiles. If you have struggled with tooth loss of any kind, these procedures can offer a solution for a smile you can be confident and proud of. The most permanent and natural of these is dental implants. At Alta Dental, we offer dental implant solutions in our Davie office to remedy any missing tooth issues you have been struggling with
Unlike dentures and bridges that rest on the gum line or rely on anchor teeth, dental implants in Davie are surgical posts that offer the same type of support and structure as your natural tooth’s roots would. The procedure involves attaching a titanium post to the jaw which naturally fuses to the bone. Then, a dental crown is attached to the post for the look and feel of your own natural teeth. The result is a solution for tooth loss that can be treated exactly like a normal tooth.
Tooth loss can be caused by a variety of things from decay, to failed root canals, to accidents. And from an aesthetic standpoint, missing teeth can be unsightly and embarrassing. For these issues, dental implants have proven effective for replacing missing teeth and providing natural-looking solutions for a healthy and beautiful smile.
Most adults can be candidates for dental implants. With the exception of children who are still growing, dental implants can provide solutions for patients who have lost teeth for any of a variety of reasons. The great advantage of today’s dental implant solutions is that they are virtually indistinguishable from the patient’s other natural teeth, they are permanent, and they are cared for and behave just like natural teeth.
Dental implant posts are made of titanium which has been used in medicine for years in bone and joint surgery. Titanium fuses to the natural bone via osseointegration. After the implant is inserted, there is a time period of about 3 to 6 months of healing when the bone and post fuse together. Once the implant has thoroughly fused to the jawbone, your Davie dental implant dentist can affix a dental crown which has been molded to the correct shape, size, and color for the individual patient. The patient will see the dentist through a series of follow up appointments to make sure that healing is taking place and that the crown is affording the correct bite.
Once a dental implant in Davie has been placed, we suggest diligent dental hygiene habits to assure that your implant does not fail. Many people suffer tooth loss due to the lack of diligent oral hygiene to begin with so we stress the importance of brushing, flossing, and professional cleaning to assure that the dental implant offers a lifetime of success.
