Dental Implants Coral Springs
A dental implant is a metal frame, mostly titanium, which is surgically placed in the jawbone under the gums to support artificial teeth on it. Dental implants provide a strong support for the teeth and will stay in place while speaking and eating. This also means that the tooth gives a more natural feeling. A dental implant is different from denture in the sense that it is permanent is requires procedure only at the specific spot. Dental implant costs are generally higher than other dental operations because of the surgeries involved. However, the benefits clearly justify the dental implant cost.
As per the American Dental Association, the two types of dental implants that are completely safe are endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants. In the first one, the implants are fixed directly into the jawbone. A different surgery then fixes the post to the implant. Lastly, the artificial tooth is attached to the post. In subperiosteal implant surgery, a titanium frame is placed in the jawbone that fixes as the gum heals. The frame has the abutment that emerges through the gums and onto which, the crown is mounted.

Dental Implants are designed to provide a basis for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. The person who has missing teeth, regains the ability to eat virtually anything. At the same time bringing confidence back in smiling.
The implants themselves are small titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone will bond with the titanium creating a strong foundation for the dental implant. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone from deterioration. This happens when teeth are missing.
Am I a candidate for Dental Implant/s?
Replacing missing teeth immediately instead of waiting several years prevents you from more expensive treatments later on. Many patients find implant dentistry a worthwhile investment, since it is one of the most successful dental procedures available, with a high success rate of 90-95%.
Many factors play into the success of dental implant. A few common components that your dentist will look for include:
Adequate bone support
Since dental implants fuse with jawbone, adequate bone density and quality is one of the most important requirements for dental implant success. Children often don’t qualify for implant dentistry since their bones have not completely developed. Bone grafts or mini implants are sometimes considered for patients who do not have enough bone structure.
Good overall health
Since implant dentistry requires a surgery, it is important that you are in good health. Patients who drink alcohol, smoke, or have diabetes usually have lower success rates. These conditions can lower oral health, which affects the healing process of the implant.
Healthy gums are necessary to support your new dental implant as it fuses with the jawbone. Patients with high risk of periodontal disease often experience dental implant failure.
Commitment to Oral Health
A dental implant requires excellent dental hygiene. A pledge to daily brushing and flossing, along with regular visits is crucial. Keep in mind that these oral hygiene habits are crucial to preserving the health and strength of your natural teeth.
The best way to determine whether you are a candidate for implant dentistry is to visit your Coral Springs dentist, Dr. Buitrago. He will look for the above criteria, as well as the location of your missing tooth when determining whether a dental implant is the best solution for your smile.
