If you're suffering from tooth loss, dental implants are the answer. Dental implants are the gold-standard in natural-looking permanent tooth replacement.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone beneath the gum line. These act as replacement tooth roots and allow us to securely mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant will not come loose like a traditional denture can.
Because implants fuse to the jawbone over time, they provide exceptionally stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges that are mounted to your implants won't slip or shift even when eating or speaking. This secure fit helps dentures, bridges or individual crowns feel more natural than traditional dentures. Implants also prevent the jawbone deterioration that is associated with tooth loss.
Once the dental implants are surgically placed, your gums will heal and your jawbone will accept the dental implants as a part of your body. We will then attach a metal post to the dental implant. This is where the prosthetic devices such as crowns, bridges or dentures, will be placed.
At Creating Smiles, we offer endosteal implants. These popular dental implants are made of titanium and offer excellent strength and support for replacement teeth. With our endosteal dental implants, you can be sure your brand new natural-looking teeth will remain secure.
If you want a secure and steady attachment point for your replacement teeth, dental implants may be the answer for you. To learn more about our dental implants in Lutz, or to schedule an appointment, please give our dental office a call. You can reach our friendly staff at (813) 278-6979.
