Dental implants have become the gold standard for restorative dentistry. Whether you’re in need of a recreated single tooth or an entire smile with the help of implant-retained overdentures, this revolutionary solution is changing lives every day. With the help of our extensive training as Board Eligible Prosthodontists, we’re able to provide implants at a much higher level of skill and quality; every step of your treatment, from initial planning to placement to customized restoration, can be handled right here at our Vero Beach office, resulting in a truly convenient and comfortable experience. Here are some of the specific processes and opportunities we will discuss with you during your free consultation and X-rays.
Once we’ve determined that you’re a viable candidate for implants and created a treatment plan that meets your unique needs, we’ll begin with a surgical placement procedure. Your new implant (or multiple implants) will be expertly placed into the appropriate socket, where it will fuse with the jawbone and create a sturdy foundation for your new smile. A healing period is needed for this process to occur naturally, which can last anywhere from a few weeks t o several months depending on the type and number of implants used, the patient’s medical history, and several other variables. Abutments will also be added, which help to connect the implant(s) to your new restoration.
Once your mouth has fully healed, we can place your brand-new restoration, effectively completing your look. Implants can be used in a wide variety of reconstructive cases, including single tooth replacement with a crown, multiple-unit implants with fixed bridgework, and even All-On-4 Implant Retained Overdentures. Our team will always take the time to design your restorations so that they’re as personalized, comfortable, and lifelike as possible. You’ll be amazed by how much your smile can be transformed with our help!
Like the name implies, we can use an implant and customized crown to completely replace a single lost tooth. In addition to looking, feeling, and functioning just like the real thing, a single tooth implant is a much more conservative option than other, more traditional techniques, helping to preserve the health of neighboring teeth. Your jawbone will also be better protected against the threat of deterioration, thanks to the implant integrating directly with it and stimulating new growth.
Patients struggling with severe tooth loss, especially those in need of full upper or lower arch replacements, can find the relief, stability, and support they’re searching for with our All-on-4 treatment. With the help of four precisely angled implants, we can place a non-removable overdenture immediately following your surgery, allowing you to leave with a brand-new, beautiful smile the very same day! After around six months have passed for your gums to fully heal, you’ll return to our office so that we can prepare a final, stronger, and more permanent set of teeth for you that will look and function as naturally as possible. As long as they’re cared for properly with regular check-ups and oral hygiene, your new smile should last for a lifetime.
