Dental Implants: The Gold Standard of Tooth Replacement
An implant dentist can help create a beautiful smile if you've lost or damaged one or more teeth to decay, trauma, or wear and tear. Dental implants are posts, typically made of titanium or titanium alloy, which are placed in the lower and/or upper jaw bones and serve as permanent anchors or supports for specially designed dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants provide the most secure, longest lasting tooth replacement option currently available.
Dental Implants with Your Tampa Bay Dentists
Since the installation process is complex, general dentists usually refer patients out to an implant specialist, costing a patient additional time and money. Fortunately, for clients in New Tampa, Saddlebrook, Tierra Verde, Palm Habor, or elsewhere in Tampa Bay, an implant dentist at Smile Design Dentistry can complete the entire process in-house, from initial consultation to final fitting.
When you choose a Smile Design implant dentist to install your dental implants, you'll have a caring, highly skilled professional to guide you through the full implant dentistry procedure, which can include:
- Measuring bone density and/or level of decay
- Implanting one or more anchor posts into jaw bones
- Allowing several months for the fusion of bone and gums around implant fixtures
- Creating and attaching one or more dental crowns, bridges, or dentures to the anchors to finalize implant installation.
A Better Alternative to Traditional Dentures
Many longtime denture wearers are under the false impression that "once a denture wearer, always a denture wearer." Luckily, this simply isn't the case anymore. Your Smile Design implant dentist can install mini dental implants to secure your full or partial dentures. Mini dental implants have a smaller diameter and are an ideal option for people with weakened jaw bone tissue resulting from years of wearing removable dentures. Schedule a consultation to learn more about how dental implant-supported dentures can free you from embarrassing slips and constant refittings.
