Even though dental implants have been widely available for over three decades, many patients are still unaware of their many benefits. At Coastal Jaw Surgery, we place traditional dental implants as well as Same Day Teeth®, we’ll discuss the latter more below. Contact us today for more information on dental implants; for your convenience, we have offices in Palm Harbor, Trinity, and Spring Hill, Florida that offer dental implants, oral surgery, periodontal services, and Same Day Teeth®.
First, what are dental implants? Dental implants are titanium alloy posts that are inserted into the jaw where teeth are missing and act as a tooth root substitute. With Same Day Teeth®, a new tooth is placed on the post the same day the implant is placed. Dental implants can also support a crown, bridge, or denture. For patients who have suffered tooth loss, dental implants are often the best restorative dentistry option with both health and aesthetic benefits.
The Health Benefits of Dental Implants
When tooth loss occurs, the jawbone stops receiving stimulation from the tooth root. The loss of this stimulation can lead to atrophy, or shrinkage, of the jawbone. Additionally, gaps left in the teeth can lead to malocclusion as surrounding teeth migrate into the void. Dental implants are the only solution that can prevent these effects.
Missing teeth can affect the way you chew, eat, and speak. For instance, only chewing on one side of your mouth can lead to jaw and neck pain, chronic headaches, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Replacing the entire tooth structure with a dental implant and a crown or denture can restore and maintain normal functionality in your bite.
The Aesthetic Benefits of Dental Implants
The most apparent aesthetic benefit of dental implants is that implant-supported restorations look natural and can make your smile whole again. Crowns, bridges and dentures can be crafted from the highest quality materials and color-matched to your natural teeth for a seamless integration into your smile. The enhanced appearance of your smile can often lead to improved confidence, and can dramatically boost your quality of life.
Same Day Teeth®: A Convenient Alternative to Traditional Dental Implants
The health and aesthetic benefits of dental implants are clear. With traditional dental implants, however, there is often waiting time between the insertion of the titanium post and the placing of the new tooth. Same Day Teeth® eliminates this wait time by placing a new tooth in the dental implant post the same day it is inserted. We’ve streamlined the process of traditional dental implants so that patients no longer have to wait to experience their new smile. Learn more about Same Day Teeth® >>
