Restore your smile with dental implant services
Anyone who has experienced tooth loss knows how much it can affect your day-to-day life. Deciding on a tooth replacement option can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. At The International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we offer many tooth replacement options designed to restore your smile’s functionality and beauty. Dental implants are considered the most state-of-the-art choice for a restoration that genuinely feels and functions like natural teeth.
Why it is important to replace missing teeth
While the most obvious reason for replacing missing teeth may seem like the cosmetic aspect of restoring your appearance, it’s not necessarily the most important. When teeth are missing within the arch, the bone in that area will begin to deteriorate and reabsorb into the jaw. This can cause existing teeth to shift or become loose and lead to a sunken look on the face due to bone loss.
Replacing missing teeth is not only an investment in your appearance but is also an investment in your long-term oral health.
Dental Implants Before and After Results
Why choose dental implants
Dental implants are a replacement for the missing tooth root. The implant post is placed into the jawbone to create a stable foundation for an artificial tooth. Dental implants can be used for a single missing tooth or can be placed strategically in the upper or lower arch to support a set of full dentures.
There are many advantages to choosing dental implants, including:
- Dental implants will have the most natural look and feel of all tooth replacement options
- Dental implants are versatile enough to be used whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire arch of teeth
- Dental implants stimulate the growth of the jawbone, which prevents bone loss and the health of the remaining teeth
- Dental implants can last a lifetime with good oral hygiene
- Dental implants do not require alteration of the adjacent teeth, unlike dental bridges.
Candidates for dental implants
Most individuals who miss one or more teeth are candidates for dental implants. Ideally, individuals should be in good oral health and address any oral condition before the implant treatment. If bone loss has occurred, grafts can be performed to help ensure the success of the dental implant. Patients must also be able to commit to the process since it takes several months to complete dental implant treatment.
