Our Melbourne, Florida oral surgeon will be more than happy to discuss with you the benefits of dental implants if you are missing one or more teeth. It’s often difficult to chew, speak, and be as confident as you can if you have lost one or more tooth, which is why dental implants may be the solution for you.
Dr. Sedaros and his oral surgery associates are able to place single stage implants that do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction – further minimizing the number of surgical procedures.
The dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants will allow you to eat and smile with confidence and eliminate any worry you had about your teeth. When you are looking for dental implants in Melbourne, FL then please give our office a call to schedule an appointment.
