Long term replacement for missing teeth in Miami is available with dental restorations
Posted by Dr. Marlon Pasquier
At Miami Modern Dental, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your life and your feelings. The good news is that dental implants are long-term restorations that will restore your smile, function like natural teeth, and can last a lifetime.
Dental Implants: Revolutionizing dental restorationDental implants are the closest restoration to natural teeth. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth.
How they work:Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone in a brief outpatient procedure. Afterward, the bone is left to heal and fuse around the post to become part of the jaw.
This process, called osseointegration, creates a stable foundation to attach dental prosthetics such as dentures or crowns. When the entire process is complete, the restoration will look and function like natural teeth.
Candidates for dental implants must be healthy enough for oral surgery and have sufficient bone structure. If you do not have sufficient bone structure, there are alternative options we can discuss with you.
The importance of tooth replacementTooth replacement goes well beyond aesthetics. When missing teeth are not replaced, the space can alter the entire anatomy of your mouth, affecting your bite and ability to chew and speak properly. Additionally, with no root to stimulate the jaw, there can be bone loss, and eventually, more tooth loss.
