Implants? Crowns? Veneers? Invisible braces? As dental technology and services have expanded in the Palm Harbor area, so has the vocabulary. Dentistry has advanced to provide many new solutions that address almost every possible dental issue.
Dealing with Missing Teeth in Trinity
Dr. David Pielak, considered one of the best dentists in Florida, has competence in both cosmetic and optimal restorative care. In the past, if a patient in Palm Harbor had a missing tooth or a severely damaged tooth, Florida dentists regularly suggested dental bridges or dentures, because they were the best options at the time. These days, revolutionary dental implants have proven to be superior to dental bridges for replacing missing teeth in Trinity patients. They can also replace dentures or anchor dentures for some patients.
If you are interested in getting a tooth implant, call Prestige Dentistry at (727) 789-1980 to schedule a tooth implant consultation. Dr. Pielak practices in the greater Trinity area from Prestige Dentistry in Palm Harbor. Dr. Pielak will perform an exam, take x-rays and discuss the best options with you. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for the procedure, the process will begin.
The Process of Replacing Missing Teeth in Trinity
Plaster dental impressions of both upper and lower plates will be taken. Dr. Pielak will precisely place the titanium implant, which looks like a dark screw, into the bone of your jaw. Over the next couple of months, the bone and implant will bond together to form a new root for your new tooth. After the necessary time has passed for bonding of the bone and implant, an extension called an abutment is placed on top of the initial implant post. This post extension is then capped with a temporary tooth. Meanwhile, the team of professionals at our lab will tailor your new, permanent crown.
Dr. Pielak will then put the permanent crown on top of the full post. This tooth will match your other teeth to create a terrific new smile. You will find that the comfort is the same as your natural teeth, to the point that you may even forget which tooth is the implant. The upkeep is the same, with brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups required. If you want to know if a tooth implant is right for you or desire specifics about smile makeovers, call Prestige Dentistry for more details. We look forward to meeting you!
