Sanford, Florida Dental Implants Are a Predictable Option

Why are dental implants in Sanford different than conventional forms of rehabilitative dental work?

  • Implants are stronger than natural teeth, allowing us to affix everything from crowns to dentures in place.
  • As few as two or four implants can be used to support multi-tooth bridges to full-arch restorations.
  • Implants can improve bone quality and strength in the jaw.
  • Dental Implants can be a minimally-invasive solution, so there’s no need to drill down or alter the structure of adjacent teeth.
  • Some types of dental implants can be installed in just one day.
  • Avoid the need to wear removable prosthetics, such as partial or full dentures.

In fact, research shows that a well maintained dental implant has a 98% chance of lasting for the rest of your life.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a biocompatible, artificial “tooth root” made of materials that trigger new bone growth within the jaw. This process called “osseointegration” is what fuses the implant into your bone and makes it a permanent part of your body. Compared to other types of modern tooth replacements, implant therapy can be the only permanent solution.

While the majority of a dental implant rests below the gum line, in a “socket” that resembles the root of your natural teeth, a very small part of the implant is visible just above the gums. On top of this surface our dental implant dentist will attach what is called an “abutment,” which is what your new crown, bridge, or stabilized denture will be attached to.
