You may look younger and feel healthier with dental implants. The procedure is a small titanium post that is placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium implant, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, they can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing. Our experienced and trained dentist helps patients who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Our office is serving the city of Pompano Beach, Plantation and Fort Lauderdale with the placement and restoration of dental implants. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved in most cases.
While high-tech in nature, implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support.
Periodontal disease causes the bone to be lost; if it’s not caught in time, there’s so little support for the teeth that they have to be removed. A Full Denture replaces all the missing teeth in the upper and lower jaw. When the entire procedure is completed in one day, it’s called an Immediate Denture. A Partial Denture is a removable appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth. It can be attached to the teeth with clasps or it can be attached to the teeth with crowns. An overdenture has some sort of direct connection to dental implants. The connection helps secure the Full Denture into place while overcoming the instability and lack of retention of a common complete denture. This is a good treatment option for an individual who requires a full denture but wants to achieve a more stable and less bulky type of restoration.
You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Our dentist in Plantation has one goal and that is to make you look healthier! Under proper conditions and diligent patient maintenance, they can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates.
