Think of dental implants as screws that replaces your lost natural tooth with artificial tooth. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called dental crowns (caps).
A connector – known as an abutment is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns. Dental crowns are custom-made in the local dental lab located in Miami, FL to match your natural teeth and fit your mouth. Dental crowns are made of zirconia and porcelain that will last you 15+ years if taken good care of it.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function natural.
The day of your implant consultation appointment visit, dentist in Brickell Dental Care evaluates your mouth and x-rays that are taken by a dental assistant. If the tooth is savable, we give you an option of saving the tooth same day or give an appointment for a day convenient for you.
If the tooth cannot be saved and needs to be extracted we are able to remove the tooth and place implant same day. Medications are prescribed to take at home after your surgery. Implant site needs 3-4 months to heal before abutment and a dental crown is installed.
If the tooth has already been missing, after carefully evaluating the gums and bone level we will be able to give you an estimate for dental implant treatment.
In any of these cases dental implants have been the best solution to all. They last a lifetime and let you enjoy your favorite meals and snacks at all times.
