Basics of Dental Implants  

Dental Implants in Clearwater, FL
Implants are fused into the jawbone, allowing you the freedom to eat whatever you like without worry. The security of dental implants affords you the confidence to talk, laugh, and sing without concern for shifting, sliding, or clicking dentures. There are no unattractive clasps to detract from your appearance.  In fact, the implants look and function just like your natural teeth. 

The Benefits of Dental Implants Instead of Other Alternatives

• Function just like your natural teeth
• Require no special care or additional maintenance
• Halt bone loss
• Restore the appearance of teeth
• Will not damage the surrounding teeth
• Results can last a lifetime

The Process of Placing Dental Implants

Implants are inserted into the jawbone are made of titanium which has been found to be bio-compatible. These titanium posts replace the tooth root and will slowly fuse into the jawbone, forming a solid anchor. This fusing process can take three to six months to fully heal.

An abutment is then fitted onto the implant which will join the post with the crown. The abutment is a small metal attachment or extension that rises above the gum line and is completely covered by the crown, making it appear as if the crown is a natural tooth growing up from the gums.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants?

A sufficient amount of bone density is required to accommodate dental implants in the jawbone. Loss of bone begins as soon as a natural tooth is removed so it is advisable to seek tooth implants as soon as possible after losing a tooth to injury or decay. If you have already suffered a great deal of bone loss and are not an immediate candidate, increasing your bone density with a bone graft may be a possibility. A consultation for dental implants in Clearwater, FL will help you determine if dental implants are the right solution for you.
