Dental implants may be the right solution for you, if:
You want to replace missing teeth with beautiful, natural-looking restorations.
Dental implants function like your natural teeth and look like them too. The crown of the implant is all anybody will see, that’s why we make custom-designed crowns from tooth-colored porcelain. That way, your smile will look complete from any angle.
You want to live with confidence and freedom.
When you suffer from tooth loss or have dentures, social interaction can be discouraging. Dental implants are one of the only restorations that reinstate functionality to your smile, meaning there are no restrictions on the food you can eat.
Since implants are permanent, you won’t have to worry about slurring your speech or having your dentures slide out of place. Regain confidence in everything you do, contact Dr. Assi in Coral Springs.
You want a restoration that fits your routine.
One of the worst parts about dentures is caring for them. With dental implants, there’s no added maintenance. As long as you brush twice a day, floss after meals, and see Dr. Assi for biannual checkups, your implant will stay healthy for years to come.
You want a solution that will defend your smile as well as your health.
When you live with gaps in your smile, your jawbone will deteriorate, your face can sag, and you’re more susceptible to developing dental diseases.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that reverses the adverse effects of tooth loss.
You want a restoration that’s built to last.
Dental implants have the highest longevity of any dental restoration because they are positioned in the jawbone and can use its full strength as support. Implants also act as placeholders for missing tooth root, which encourages healthy jawbone growth.
With proper care, your implants could last as long as 30 years.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I receive dental implants if I smoke?
You may not qualify for dental implants if smoking has damaged your oral cavity. It may be necessary for you to undergo a supplemental procedure to improve your oral health and chances for candidacy. Your dentist may recommend that you kick the habit beforehand to lower your risk of complications and avoid smoking for several months afterward.
Is there an age limit for undergoing dental implant surgery?
There’s no age limit for receiving dental implants. Your candidacy for this revolutionary procedure depends mainly on your oral health, including the strength of your jawbone and gum line. During your initial consultation, your dentist will review your medical records and examine your smile to determine if you may benefit from dental implants. As long as you have your permanent teeth, chances are you qualify for the procedure.
Is adequate jaw strength needed for dental implant candidacy?
Yes! Having a strong jawbone is one of the qualities that dentists look for when deciding candidacy for dental implants. If your jaw is weak or you’ve been suffering from missing teeth for a long time, chances are you may need a bone graft to restore its density. This supplemental procedure can improve your candidacy and bring you closer to your dream smile.
What if I have a history of bruxism or teeth grinding?
You can still receive dental implants if you grind your teeth as long as you receive treatment beforehand. If not, you run the risk of having your implant procedure fail. Be sure to mention any oral health problems you experience to your implant dentist so that they can take them into account when deciding your candidacy. Bruxism can usually be solved with a simple custom-made nightguard that you would wear during the night.
