Discover the Benefits of Dental Implants
Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, dental implants can provide a permanent solution to improve your smile and oral health. At Miramar Smiles Dentistry, we specialize in implant dentistry, using the latest techniques and materials to give you the best results.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth, ensuring that dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth—an especially important benefit when eating and speaking.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Getting dental implants usually involves several steps, including:
- A comprehensive dental exam with X-rays and 3D images.
- A personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific dental needs.
- The surgical placement of the implant post into your jawbone.
- A healing period where the jawbone grows around the implant, securing it in place.
- Placement of the abutment, which will hold the new tooth.
- The attachment of the new artificial tooth (crown) to the abutment.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most people who are in good health and have healthy gums and adequate bone to support an implant can consider this treatment. Smoking, certain chronic diseases, and radiation therapy in the area can affect the success of an implant, so you will need to discuss your medical history with our team.
Caring for Your Dental Implants
Like your natural teeth, implants require the same good oral hygiene practices, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups. With proper care, your implants can last a lifetime.
