Are you one of the many men and women who have missing teeth in Palm Harbor due to an extraction? If the tooth had been bothering you, it may have been a relief. Unless, of course, the tooth was in the front of your mouth and now the gaping hole shows every time you smile. Ignoring it can be impossible because your tongue can’t leave it alone.
Finding a Replacement
Once the tooth has been pulled, you have many important decisions to make. Is a dental bridge affordable? Do I want to damage two healthy teeth to anchor the bridge? Should I select a partial denture? What about bone loss?
What if you could have a fresh start? What if you could have a permanent, natural-looking tooth replacement that would restore your smile and retain the healthy bone and gum tissue around the tooth root? If decided to select a dental implant, then you can.
Replacing Missing Teeth in Palm Harbor
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for missing teeth in Palm Harbor. The replacement consists of three parts, the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration. The Titanium Post is inserted directly into the jaw bone and is extremely strong. Titanium is unique in the way that it bonds with living bone tissue. It is also used in knee and hip replacement surgeries. The Abutment can be made of gold, porcelain, or titanium and is permanently attached to the post. It will not slip and slide like dentures. The Restoration, also known as the crown, is usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy. It is made to match the color of surrounding teeth and will look as good or even better than the tooth it replaced.
Dental implant surgery is not an experimental treatment. The revolutionary materials and techniques have been tested and refined for several decades. In addition, it has been performed by dentists for over twenty-five years. To schedule a dental implant consultation, call 727-789-1980.
