Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants are a recommended alternative to traditional restorations and prosthetics, such as bridges and dentures, since they provide benefits that extend beyond simple tooth replacement.
Dental implants help retain bone structure lost due to missing teeth. Your jaw bone utilizes the roots of teeth to stimulate bone growth and tissue retention, thus supporting itself. Since traditional bridges and removable dentures rest directly on the gums and jaw bone, they do not stimulate bone growth. In fact, over time, they can cause tissue and bone to slowly recede. Dental implants provide a replacement tooth root which does stimulate bone growth and tissue retention, restoring the strength of the jaw bone.
Whether you’re missing one tooth or a full arch, dental implant restorations and posts help replace those teeth entirely. If you have been using a denture or partial for some time, and find that they can easily slip or feel ill-fitting in the smile, implant supported bridges and dentures are recommended options. For patients with one or many gaps in their smile, our crowns can be supported by implant posts. At Caloosa Dental, all of our restorations are fabricated to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants only utilize posts to support restorations. This allows for adjacent teeth to stay unaltered and healthy.
Dental Implant Treatment in Fort Myers
We begin your implant treatment by inviting you in for a consultation with one of our expert dentists to discuss the procedure and take in-depth images of your jaw. At our Lehigh location, we house a CT Scanner which is ideal for determining the health and density of your jaw bone. From this scan and other x-rays, we can determine your oral health and your candidacy for dental implant placement. Once approved, we discuss options for restorations, which depends on the number of teeth missing in your smile.
At the time of your implant placement procedure, we do provide local anesthetics to ease anxiety and increase your comfort. Our Fort Myers dental implant experts take the time to discuss the procedure with you in detail so that you know what to expect. Our front office staff is also here to exude a sense of calm and a reassuring hand for any concerns you may have. Once placement is completed, we invite you back after the recommended three months healing time to begin your final restoration.
