Dr. Guarnieri may suggest dental implants in Longwood, Florida, if you are missing one or more permanent teeth. A dental implant consists of a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone and a dental restoration, like a dental crown. At our office, we provide the dental implant restoration.
Dental implants are very popular because of their many advantages. In a nutshell, dental implants can restore both the beauty and the functionality of your smile. Dental implants do not shift or slip in your mouth. Because of this, they provide the security and stability of natural teeth. Dental implants become a permanent part of your mouth. They are cleaned just like your natural teeth. Implant placement does not require the alteration of nearby teeth, so no healthy tooth structure is lost. Dental implants prevent the nearby teeth from shifting. This helps preserve your jawbone and the shape of your face.
Before recommending a dental implant, our dentist will examine your gums to make sure they are healthy and determine if you have enough bone structure in your jaw to support a dental implant. To be a candidate for a dental implant, you must also be in good health.
