Tooth Implant Solutions For Lakeland Residents
Dental implants help improve your smile after suffering tooth loss as a result of tooth decay, gingivitis or injury. Millions of Americans are opting for dental implants versus previous procedures, including bridges and dentures for a solution to the missing tooth or teeth. A tooth implant is designed to match your natural teeth, making it look as if you never had any dental work done. Implants eliminate embarrassing moments, including the need to remove dentures to clean or adjust.
Benefits of a tooth implant from your trusted Lakeland dentist include:
- Improved appearance
- Improved comfort
- Improved speech
- Improved self-esteem
- Improved oral health
- Easier eating and chewing
Candidates for a tooth implant, must have healthy gums and enough bone to support the implant. Patients must commit to good oral hygiene and schedule regular dental visits. Smokers and patients with heart related health issues will be considered on a case-by-case basis. When properly taken care of your implants can last a lifetime.
Your Lakeland tooth implant procedure will include an personalized treatment plan that meets your specific dental needs. The periodontist makes a small post, the tooth root implant, and places it into the bone socket of the missing tooth. Once healed, a connector post is attached and the new tooth is attached to the new post.
