What are dental implants?

Dental implants are truly one of the most remarkable advances in dentistry today. A dental implant is a titanium metal cylinder that’s placed in your jawbone with the purpose of replacing missing teeth and/or anchoring prosthesis. In most cases prior to implant placement, a CT scan in taken to further evaluate the jawbone and strategically determine the best areas for implant placement. After the implants are placed, a period of time is allowed for the bone to grow and integrate with the implant (also known as Osseointegration). Finally, the implants are restored with either porcelain crowns, or prosthesis is fabricated to be supported by the implants.

Who can benefit from dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth, loose dentures, or want to change your current removable dentures to a fixed prosthesis you can truly benefit from dental implants. Dental implants will replace missing teeth, stabilize loose dentures, and even replace removable dentures with a fixed prosthesis. Dental implants contribute a stronger more balanced bite. Dental implants also improve your chewing ability by making it more efficient.

If you are contemplating having dental implants, we recommend that you schedule a free implant consultation with Dr. Pasquier Sr. or Dr. Pasquier Jr. at Miami Modern Dental. Both Dr. Pasquier Sr. and Dr. Pasquier Jr. can best assess if dental implants are right for you. They may also offer alternative treatments to dental implants, giving you the option to choose the treatment that is more convenient and the one that you feel more comfortable with.

Alternative treatments to dental Implants include:

Snap-on-smile – replace missing teeth while cosmetically enhancing the remaining ones.

Porcelain bridges – replace missing teeth with a reliable fixed prosthesis.
