Dental Implants in Naples
Every year, millions of Americans lose teeth to gum disease, tooth decay
or injury. If you have recently suffered such a loss, there is no need
to have embarrassing spaces in your mouth any longer. We can give you
a new tooth that looks and feels like it’s one of your own. A dental
implant can give you back your smile and your confidence.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that holds a replacement tooth
where your own natural tooth once was. Made of titanium, a biocompatible
material that fuses naturally to your jawbone, a dental implant permanently
replaces the root of the dead, damaged or diseased tooth.
Since dental implants replace the tooth root, they are uniquely able to:
• Replace one or more teeth without affecting adjacent teeth the
way a bridge does
• Support a bridge without the need for a removable partial denture
• Support a denture to make it more secure and comfortable
The advantages of dental implants
Dental implants offer a range of advantages over dentures, the traditional
solution to missing teeth:
- Natural appearance.
- Improved speech
- Greater comfort
- Better oral health
Perhaps the greatest advantage of dental implants is that you will feel
better every time you look in the mirror.
The tooth implant process
Dental implants are performed as outpatient surgery, usually under general
anesthesia. The surgery is performed in several steps, the number of steps
depending on which kind of implant you choose. We’ll work with you
to be sure that we choose the type of implant and surgical method that
are right for you.
