The Benefits of Dental Implants

At Periodontalworld, Dr. Angel Diaz-Norrman and Dr. Marco Morales change lives in Miami, FL, by reconstructing smiles. Dental implants are a way of completely replacing missing teeth and restoring smiles. Missing teeth leave an unsightly gap in your smile and can cause other dental problems. Read about the top benefits of dental implants and come see us to find out if you're a candidate for this tooth-replacement method.

Implants are strong

Dental implants are made up of a titanium post and a ceramic crown that sits on top to replace the tooth. The post is placed during minor surgery, and you wear a temporary tooth cap while you heal for a period of several weeks. During this time, a process called osseointegration takes place. The implant actually fuses to the jawbone, making it strong.

Implants restore function to the mouth

Missing teeth can cause other dental problems. When a tooth is missing it can cause problems with chewing and speaking, and if it is left missing, over time the strength of the jawbone in that area will become compromised. Getting a dental implant actually strengthens the jaw bone because it fuses to the implant.

Implants are easy to care for

When you have a dental implant, you need to keep up a great oral hygiene routine at home and see your dentist for regular cleanings and exams. Your Miami, FL, dentists will recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day and flossing at least once a day.

Implants give you a beautiful smile

The ceramic crowns used with dental implants are designed to be as strong as and blend in perfectly with your natural teeth. During the healing period, while the implant is fusing to the jawbone, you wear a temporary tooth cap and your custom restoration is fabricated. At a final appointment, your permanent crown is placed and you leave the office with a new tooth!
