Dental implants are permanent, replacement tooth roots that are made from titanium. Implants support false teeth and allow you to restore the function and aesthetics of your smile after tooth loss. The permanence of implants makes them a popular choice for people struggling with tooth loss.
If you’re missing one or several teeth, you know very well that the repercussions can be many and severe. Gaps in your teeth compromise your ability to chew. Several missing teeth can also cause bone atrophy, which results in bite collapse. What’s more, not having enough teeth can make it impossible for you to get the necessary nutrition, which impacts your overall well-being.
Depending on the type of tooth loss, you can receive a single implant or several. We offer single tooth replacement and All-on-4®implants as well. All-on-4 implants refer to a type of restoration where four implants support a full dental arch of replacement teeth.
We carefully assess our patients to determine the state of their oral and overall health before recommending dental implants. For traditional dental implants, you need to have sufficient bone to allow implant surgery as well as healthy gums. With All-on-4 implants, plenty of wiggle room even if you’ve suffered some bone atrophy.
Implant surgery is performed under anesthesia. This may be local anesthesia with the option of sedation or general anesthesia.
During your first appointment, our dentist will drill a hole in your bone and insert the titanium root. After several months of healing and osseointegration, our dentist attaches an abutment or connector post to the implant and then finishes off with the replacement tooth.
For single tooth replacement, a dental crown completes the look.
For the All-on-4 restorations, you will receive dentures that are supported by four implants located at four strategic points of your jaw. All-on-4 implants are known as same-day teeth since you can get the implants and your dentures on the same day.
The process of receiving dental implants in Palm Coast, FL, requires commitment and collaboration. Ensure that you follow our dentist’s after-care instructions and always come in for your follow-up appointments so we can check whether you’re healing and progressing as needed.
