What are dental implants?
Tooth loss can be devastating to your appearance, your confidence, and your oral health. At Advanced Dental Care, we urge our patients to consider replacement immediately after the loss of a tooth. The gap in your smile isn’t just unsightly; it also gives adjacent teeth room to shift out of place, resulting in tooth misalignment that may require orthodontic treatment to correct.
There are several options for tooth replacement, but dental implants are the preferred method because they offer so many benefits. Unlike removable dentures or partials that sit on top of your gums, an implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. As the site heals, the implant fuses itself securely to surrounding bone and tissue.
This process creates stability and permanence that no other type of tooth replacement offers. After healing is complete, we restore function and appearance with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on your specific needs.
If you are interested in learning if you are a good candidate for dental implants, please call our Winter Springs, FL dental office. We will be happy to arrange a consultation with Dr. Young so he can evaluate your needs and recommend appropriate options.
