Dental Implants in Jupiter
Teeth play many vital roles, some of which are apparent, like chewing, talking and smiling, and some ways which are less obvious. Did you know that teeth are an important part of your facial structure, and that tooth loss can cause the bones in your jaw to diminish? Fifty years ago, nothing could be done about bone shrinkage caused by tooth loss, but today, with dental implants, this problem can be solved. At Dental Spa Abacoa, we offer Jupiter dental implants, making this advancement in cosmetic dentistry accessible right here in your area.
Dental implants are the best option for recreating the look and feel of missing teeth. An implant refers to an artificial tooth root, usually made of titanium, which integrates into your jawbone and supports dental prosthetics such as crowns, bridges and dentures. Your dental provider of Jupiter dental implants at Dental Spa Abacoa will first determine if you are eligible for implants via dental radiographs, scans and exams and by discussing your health history with you. If you are a candidate for dental implant surgery, your dentist may need to perform an additional procedure, such as a bone graft, to ensure a good prognosis for your implants.
The implant placement surgery is performed in your dentist’s office, usually under local anesthesia, and involves inserting the artificial root into the jawbone. Typically, there is a three to six month period after the surgery when the implant fuses with the bone. Once the implant has successfully integrated with the jawbone, the visible portion of your replacement teeth can be placed and you can once again enjoy your smile. If cared for properly, with regular brushing and flossing, dental implants can last a lifetime.
