Oral Surgery in Tampa, New Tampa, Plant City & Nearby Regions
What is oral surgery? Oral surgery involves the diagnosis and surgery of injuries, defects, and diseases involving the aesthetic and functional aspects of the hard and soft tissues of your mouth and face.
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 causes 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 also prevent changes in the facial structure. At Dental Associates of Florida, we are prepared for many oral surgeries like dental implants and root canals.
Almost every adult that has missing teeth is a potential candidate for dental implants. A fully trained dentist in implant procedures performs this procedure in the dentist’s office. A typical implant procedure can includes several visits where the client receives a complete checkup. This checkup includes bone density measurement and the measurement of the level of decay, implanting several anchor posts, and the final installation. Following post installation, a space of several months may pass before the final attachment of the bridge, crowns, or dentures. This time allows fusion of the gums and bones to the implant fixtures. The dentist will attach the top portion of the implant once the area has healed.
