Dental Implants

Tooth Implant Dentistry In Palm Harbor

Losing a tooth by accident or by extraction doesn’t end concerns over that tooth. When a tooth is missing, the space left allows nearby teeth to shift or tilt, and teeth across from the gap to move downward or upward. Aside from cosmetic concerns, this tilting and shifting can lead to severe bite problems including jaw pain and headaches. Tooth loss also can lead to vertical shortening of the face, which becomes more evident with age.

For years, dental bridges and dentures were the only options for people who had lost teeth as a result of failed root canals, periodontal disease, decay or injury.

Dental implants are a very effective way of allowing people with severe tooth loss or ill fitting bridgework to enjoy foods they couldn’t before, go out to restaurants with friends, get rid of their dentures, and worry less about embarrassing facial disfigurements.

Unlike a dental bridge, which relies on neighboring teeth for support, a tooth implant leaves more of your own teeth unaffected and reduce the risk for gum disease because a tooth implant make it easier to remove plaque. For denture wearers, dental implants offer a more secure and comfortable fit.

The Latest Advancements in Implant Dentistry

dental implants with a Palm Harbor dentist Tarpon SpringsThe dental implant dentists at Prestige Dentistry are bringing some of the latest advancements in dental implants to the Tarpon Springs – Palm Harbor region, making the implant dentistry process faster, less invasive, and more accurate than ever before.

For example, our dental implant dentists are now using a mini CT scan of the head and neck (which requires much less radiation then conventional CT scans) and computer imaging to locate optimal implantation sites in the jaw – without cutting the gums – so even people with severe bone loss can have successful dental implant surgery.

Using the CT scan, your dental implant dentist can calculate the depth of bone, note the location of nerves and vital structures (such as the sinuses) and plan the optimal placement of the each of the dental implants.

For people missing many or all of their teeth, two or more dental implants can be placed into the upper and lower jawbones, and dentures can be clipped or screwed onto them. Dentures that clip on are removable — just like regular dentures — but more stable and comfortable because they are secured by the dental implants.
