Let’s face it, South Florida is no stranger to implants- but for teeth? Absolutely! Offering more that cosmetic appeal, dental implants are the closest functional equivalent to your real teeth. Dental implants are an anchor for a replacement tooth or crown or a set of replacement teeth. Dental implants are considered the standard of care to replace a failing or missing tooth. They are more comfortable, realistic, functional and predictable than bridgework, partials, and root canal treatment.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental Implants are by far the biggest advancement in dentistry in the last 30 years.

When teeth go missing due to age, accidents, or other health complications, it’s important to replace them. Not just for looks- but for your overall health, the health of your other teeth, and your smile. When one or more teeth are lost, chewing becomes difficult and your other teeth may be compromised, lost, tipped or crowded! Also, the more obvious problems of poor appearance and loss of self-esteem can inhibit otherwise social and happy individuals from engaging in activities they enjoy.

To smile or not to smile…

As a patient, you face a difficult decision to undergo surgery to insert dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. Speak to your Periodontist about whether dental implants represent the best long-term solution for you. A Periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three to four years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for dental implant procedures.
