At Biscayne Wellness Center we understand that, for many people, smiling is a problem because they feel they have unattractive teeth. Perhaps they need a tooth replacement and are very self-conscious about it. A bigger problem, though, is that their hesitance to smile reflects a lack of self-confidence. When people are embarrassed by their teeth, they feel the need to cover them up, and their self-confidence takes a hit.
Dental implants can help restore a healthy, natural smile. When it comes to replacing one or more teeth, a dental implant is typically the preferred treatment.
Simply put, a dental implant is composed of biocompatible posts that replace the roots of a missing tooth. These implants are physically and biologically designed to attach to the jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural looking replacement tooth.
These implants function as a replacement for the roots of teeth. Dental implants can be used to secure crowns and bridge work as well as dentures.
Dental implants are composed of titanium which makes them both lightweight and strong. One of the most important things about implants is that they are accepted by the body. They are completely safe and effective, so dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth and improve one’s smile. When properly cared for, dental implants are permanent.
With dental implants, one may feel a new lease on life. Implants can help people smile again! They look and feel real, and function just the same as natural teeth.
People who are missing teeth can receive implants and go back to eating regularly. Those who felt their smiles were unattractive can start smiling for the camera!
The advantages of having a dental implant put in place include the fact that they can replace teeth without affecting any adjacent teeth and they can replace a missing tooth while helping maintain the bone levels of the mouth. In many cases, the procedure can be paid for with a payment plan.
The placement of dental implants involves two separate surgical procedures. The first places the implants in the jaw bone. The implants will be placed beneath the surface of the gums. The implants then bond with the jaw bone and this process takes anywhere from three to six months.
After the implants have bonded with the jaw bone, there is a second surgery. This surgery will uncover the implants and attach posts to them. These posts will then anchor the new replacement teeth and these artificial teeth will cover the posts, so they cannot be seen.
The entire process takes from six to eight months.
