Have you recently lost a tooth due to an accident or decay? With today’s dental technology, it is now possible to fully replace it from the root to the top! A dental implant can be used to anchor a realistic-looking crown that can imitate the appearance and function of an actual tooth, so nobody will be the wiser to your restorative dentistry work. To schedule your dental implant consultation, call Florida Smiles Dental today.
A dental implant is a small, metal screw that is surgically placed into the socket of the missing tooth. As your jaw and gums heal from this procedure, the jawbone and implant will fuse together. This will create a solid foundation for a dental crown, which will be attached during a separate session. Once your Florida Smiles dentists have determined that your mouth is fully healed from your initial dental implant placement, you’ll return to our office for the dental implant restoration. We will carefully match the shade of your existing enamel to a crown so that your restorative dentistry work will blend into your smile.
Placing a dental implant will rejuvenate your smile in more ways than one. After a tooth is knocked out, or extracted, the jaw bone around the socket will begin to deteriorate with nothing to support. After you receive your dental implant, the nerves in the area will mistake it for your tooth and alert your body to strengthen the bone. Use your dental implant to build up your bone density!
With a fully restored dental implant, you’ll be able to regain the self-confidence that was lost with your tooth. You can eat, chew gum, and do everything that you would with a natural tooth with your dental implant. It’s important to note that your dental implant will not darken over the years as normal enamel will. The dental crown that is affixed to your dental implant won’t respond to cosmetic teeth whitening either, so if you want a brighter smile, you may want to experience teeth whitening prior to having your dental implant restored. This way, your dental work will match your radiant smile!
