At Coral Springs Smiles, we understand that losing a tooth can be a difficult and often traumatic experience. Missing teeth can have a negative impact on your oral health, your confidence, and your ability to chew and speak properly. That’s why we offer dental implant solutions that can restore your smile and your quality of life.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a permanent and reliable solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of a small titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone and acts as a replacement for the root of the missing tooth. This post is then topped with a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture that looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
There are several benefits to choosing dental implants over other tooth replacement options. Here are just a few:
Permanent: Dental implants are a permanent solution that can last a lifetime with proper care.
Natural Look and Feel: Dental implants are designed to look and feel just like natural teeth. They blend in seamlessly with your smile and are virtually indistinguishable from your real teeth.
Improved Oral Health: Dental implants help maintain the health of your jawbone and prevent further tooth loss.
Improved Speech: Missing teeth can affect your ability to speak properly. Dental implants can restore your ability to speak with confidence.
Improved Chewing: Dental implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to chew and eat your favorite foods without any restrictions.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
The process of getting dental implants typically involves several appointments over the course of several months. Here is a brief overview of the steps involved:
Consultation: During your initial consultation, we will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if dental implants are the right option for you. We will also discuss the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Implant Placement: The first step in the implant process is the placement of the titanium post into the jawbone. This post will serve as the foundation for your new tooth or teeth.
Healing: Once the implant is placed, you will need to allow time for the post to fuse with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This typically takes several months.
Abutment Placement: After the post has fused with the jawbone, we will attach an abutment to the post. This abutment will serve as the connection between the post and your new tooth or teeth.
Crown Placement: Finally, we will attach a custom-made crown, bridge, or denture to the abutment, completing your new smile.
