Learn How an Implant Dentist Can Replace Your Ill-Fitting Dentures

Implant DentistAs an implant dentist in Miami, we can replace your dentures and provide you with a much more secure solution – dental implants. If you are currently wearing dentures and always afraid that they may come loose, you are not alone. This fear prevents many people from doing the activities that they love or even dining in public. Even those with dentures that fit well are often paralyzed by the concern that they will come loose at an inconvenient time. If you are in this situation, you do not have to live like this. We can help by providing you with a tooth replacement that is so secure that you will never have to think about it again.

As an implant dentist, patients often ask us how we can be so confident that the implants will remain in place. It all comes down to science. An implant is comprised of three components: a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown. The titanium post is the actual implant that is inserted under the gums and secured to the jawbone. Titanium is a unique material because it is incredibly strong, and the body treats it like natural matter. This means that the bone and implant will fuse together through the process of osseointegration. Essentially, a new root system is created through this process. The jawbone then provides the same level of security and stability to your new tooth that it would to a natural one. It takes a couple of months for osseointegration to take place, and once it does, you will be ready to have the abutment attached to your implant at the surface of your gums. The dental crown will be secured to it for the process to be completed.

Since we are a cosmetic dentist as well, we will ensure that the new crown (the tooth portion of the implant) is created in the right shape, size, and shade to blend in with your surrounding teeth. This will ensure that your replacement teeth look as natural as the surrounding ones or even better. Some people like to use this opportunity to improve their smile, and we are happy to help by completing a teeth whitening procedure before placing the new crown or even repairing other teeth with dental veneers. We can assist with all of your oral health or aesthetic challenges, so feel free to discuss all of them with us.

When you visit our Miami implant dentist office, we can discuss all of the many benefits of using implants. The obvious ones are the natural look of your new teeth and the ability to eat whatever you want without restriction. However, there are health benefits that take place under the surface. The implant provides stimulation to your jawbone, and this stimulation stops the process of resorption from taking place. Resorption is when calcium is leached from the body to be used elsewhere. It is a natural process that gives people a sunken appearance after tooth loss. Fortunately, we can help to prevent it using dental implants. To learn more about the many benefits, call (305) 230-4041 and schedule a consultation today.
