Why Dental Implants Are Industry Standard

When it comes to dental implants in Jensen Beach, reviews like "gold standard" often come up as a persuasive description for this tooth-replacement option. If you are missing one or multiple teeth, you might be interested in tooth restoration procedures that can help you heal your smile. 

What Is the Process of a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are so successful because, unlike other dental prosthetics, implants replace the entire tooth root below the gum line. The procedure involves a thin, biocompatible titanium post that is surgically placed into your jaw bone. Once our restorative dentist completes the surgical procedure, the patient will take time to heal and allow the dental implant to fuse with the bone and surrounding tissues. Once you have healed, Dr. Christopher Wigley will custom fabricate a dental crown as the visible part of the dental implant. 

Your Permanent Tooth-Replacement Procedure

While other tooth-replacement solutions like bridges and dentures are available, they all rest on the gum line. Without a tooth root, your jaw bone will start to deteriorate in a process known as resorption, which will change the contours of your face dramatically over time. Only dental implants can stop this process because they stimulate bone growth. As an artificial tooth root, your dental implant keeps your oral structure healthy, stabilizes your jaw, and keeps your jaw bone healthy and robust. 

Are You Interested in Dental Implants?

Regardless of how you lost one or more teeth, at Jensen Beach Dental, our goal is to restore your smile using dental implants. Dental implants are the highest quality surgical procedure that can prevent future dental problems, restore your bite function, allow you to speak clearly, and bring back your self-confidence. 

Dental implants are a permanent procedure, so we must provide all the information, benefits, cons, and dental alternatives to our Jensen Beach patients to help them feel confident in their decision.
