If you’re looking to get your smile back, look no further than dental implants.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically embedded under your gum line to anchor replacement or prosthetic teeth. Dental implants are made of titanium and fuse with your jawbone, thus providing solid support for your teeth and preventing any future bone damage.
At Amaya Dental in Miami and Pembroke Pines, Florida, we specialize in dental implants, orthodontic treatments, and cosmetic dental procedures and can help you determine whether dental implants are the right choice for you. Read on to learn all about them.
The first stage of the implant procedure is to determine whether this is the most viable option for you. We will examine the teeth that need to be replaced, their level of decay, and confirm whether the jawbone is strong enough to hold the implant.
The next step is to remove the damaged teeth and replace them with titanium posts that will act as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants are in place, they will fuse with the jawbone and create a solid foundation for the replacement teeth.
You can either get single tooth implants or multiple implants for dentures.
Once the healing process is complete, the next stage is securely placing the crown (the artificial tooth) on top of the titanium post. The artificial tooth is customized to fit the functional and cosmetic needs of the patient, matching your real teeth in terms of color, shape, and size.
Dental implants are a permanent and secure alternative for missing teeth. As the replacement teeth imitate real teeth in both form and function, you can enjoy all the activities you want just like before.
Moreover, as the titanium implants provide a solid structure that fills gaps, any possibility of future bone loss or decay is considerably reduced. Dental implants also help to preserve facial structure.
As for aftercare, dental implants need the same level of maintenance natural teeth do. A simple routine that includes brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will help ensure they last a lifetime.
The cost of a dental implant depends on the severity of your tooth damage or decay and the number of implants you require. Initially, a dental implant might seem costlier than dentures or bridges. However, dental implants are more convenient, durable, and strong than other options.
