North Miami Dental ImplantsLosing permanent teeth is not nearly as exciting as losing baby teeth. When a permanent tooth is lost, it is important to replace it as quickly as possible. Empty spaces can cause the teeth to shift, and can even impact facial contours if left untreated. Though bridgework or traditional dentures are long-used methods of tooth-replacement, the dental implant is proving to be the preferred solution.
Dental implants are ideal for the replacement of lost teeth for a number of reasons. Whether treatment is needed where a tooth is visible, or in the back of the mouth where chewing takes place, implants provide the result you need and deserve. This form of restoration provides the ultimate in comfort and stability because it is anchored in the jaw, rather than situated on top of gum tissue.
Suitable for the replacement of a single tooth or many, the dental implant looks very natural and functions as a natural tooth does. Unlike a bridge or denture, a dental implant is designed to replace the tooth as well as the root that has been lost. Consequently, chewing function is restored to its most normal state, and bone loss is no longer a concern, as stimulation is provided by the implant.
Dental Implants vs. Dentures
Many people who wear dentures know the consequences of a device that sits on top of the gums. For many years, the demand has grown for a better alternative to a denture that can rub against the gums, slip, or even fall out. The dental implant provides the best possible solution to the problems presented by standard dentures.
Dental implants can be used to support a specially designed denture, called an overdenture. Rather than placing an individual dental implant for every missing tooth, only a few implants are placed in optimal locations to anchor the denture appliance. This process provides the kind of security and stability that allows you to eat the food you love, and feel fully confident when speaking, laughing, or smiling.
Whether for a single tooth, or for the replacement of all teeth with an overdenture, Dr. Fain provides the entire treatment right here in our North Miami dental practice, so you receive consistency in care with someone you know and trust.
