Dental Implants Miami Beach - Before and After - Case 1
Missing teeth in a smile can result in low self-esteem and confidence, and can cause problems with the existing teeth. Teeth around the space left behind may end up shifting to compensate, resulting in changes in a patient's entire smile. Addressing a missing natural tooth is essential in maintaining a beautiful smile. This is why many patients consider dental implants. Miami Beach dentist Dr. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental offers cosmetic restorations to address missing teeth, including dental implants. Dental implants are also used for patients who have dentures and are looking for a solution to keep them firmly in place. Dental implants can be surgically placed into the bone and made to "snap" together with dentures for a tight, sturdy fit.

Dental implants themselves are restorations that are made out of titanium and are surgically inserted into the bone of the patient's jaw. The restoration is then given time to heal and fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once this occurs, the implant is held into place by the patient's bone, and is extremely strong and sturdy. This is the same way that natural teeth are held in place. For missing teeth, the implant is then topped with a dental crown. For implant-supported dentures, the implants are then prepared to fit with the patient's dentures for a tight and confident fit.

While other alternatives, such as partial dentures and dental bridges are available, many patients consider dental implants because of their typical lifespan. Many of Dr. Pasquier's patients will have their original dental implants for the rest of their life. This is because they integrate into the bone and, when well cared for, will stay in place as a permanent restoration. However, proper care is needed to ensure that they stay healthy and intact, so patients are strongly encouraged to brush and floss daily and maintain regular recall appointments and cleanings with their dentist. This will make certain that patients are not developing periodontal disease, which can eat away at the bone and cause the implant--and other natural teeth in the smile--to loosen and fall out.

Dr. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental has spent over 15 years practicing cosmetic dentistry, and has had great success with dental implants in hundreds of patients. Thanks to technological advances, dentists such as Dr. Pasquier have the tools and the ability to recreate and restore smiles, regardless of what has happened in the history of their oral health.
