Dental Implants

Tampa Dental Implants Serving The Greater Tampa Bay

Despite the modern improvements in dental care, millions of people continue to suffer with missing teeth due to gum disease, injuries or tooth decay. Previously the only treatment options were removable dentures and fixed bridges, but today a better alternative is dental implants. The implants are made from titanium and are used as an artificial root replacement for a natural tooth.

There are numerous reasons why someone may need to see the dentist for a replacement tooth, such as:

  • Bone loss
  • Crooked teeth
  • Fractures or injury
  • Periodontal disease
  • Missing teeth
  • Poor fitting dentures
  • Loose teeth

Dental implants are an excellent alternative for restoring a single tooth, providing a base for partial dentures and building a crown. A traditional bridge often means having to grind down any teeth that are adjacent to the one being replaced, which can cause bone loss under teeth that not supported and cause more pain as well as more damage. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss, keep bite correct, prevent teeth from shifting, prevent wear on remaining teeth and can prevent changes in the facial structure.

Almost every adult with missing teeth is a candidate for dental implants. The procedure is done in the office by a dentist who is fully trained in the implant procedure. An implant procedure typically includes several visits which may include complete checkup including measuring bone density and the level of decay, implanting one or more of the anchor posts and the final installation. Following the installation of the posts, there is typically a space of several months before the final attachment of the crowns, bridge or dentures. This time is to allow for fusion of the bone and gums to the implant fixtures. Once the area is healed, the dentist will attach the top portion of the implant.
