Tooth Implant Procedure Miami - Smiling woman at Miami Modern Dental

Miami area dentist describes the tooth implant procedure

Repairing the smile is just one of many services the team of Miami Modern Dental offers in their state-of-the-art dental facility. Drs. Pasquier believe that a smile that is both beautiful and functional is best, so when tooth loss or extraction occurs, restorative solutions are always discussed with patients ready to bring their smile back. Patients who want one of the most advantageous restorations within their smile may consider dental implants.

Dental implants are popular because of the many advantages they have over other solutions including dentures and bridges. Dental implant benefits include better strength and stability, beauty, functionality, and permanency. They can be used by patients with enough bone structure to facilitate placement and ensure the process of osseointegration occurs, as well as overall healthy smiles free from periodontal disease.

If patients are considering dental implants, it is important that they learn about the process of the procedure from start to finish. Once patients have discussed all their options with Drs. Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental, they will begin by preparing for the procedure with x-rays to allow us to determine the most appropriate places to insert the implants into the bone for optimum results. Patients schedule their dental appointment for the implant procedure and arrive with or without sedation, depending on their needs. Local anesthetics are used for comfort and at this visit; the dentist will place the implant into the bone and suture the area.

The next part requires waiting. It is important for the bone of the jaw to grow around the implant and solidify it in place during the process of osseointegration, which can take many weeks or months. During this time, the implant stabilizes as it integrates into the mouth as a permanent fixture.

After osseointegration, the dental implant can then be restored. This is done with a dental bridge, a denture, or a dental crown, depending on the patient's need and reason for having the dental implant placed. X-rays are taken to ensure the implant is held in place in the bone before restoration. Afterwards, patients are educated on how to care for their implant to keep it healthy and functioning for life.
