Implant Restorations in Winter Haven, FL

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to support a dental crown, a dental bridge, or a denture. The implant serves as a replacement for a natural tooth root and is placed surgically in the upper or lower jaw. Dental implants function as anchors for replacement teeth and are made of titanium, a metal that is extremely well tolerated by the body. The implant fuses with the jawbone, enabling it to be a secure foundation for the replacement tooth.

At Stefani J Allison DMD, dental implants are a popular restoration option for patients because they provide several advantages. For example, implants look and feel just like natural teeth. They also prevent jawbone recession and bone loss, which occurs when a tooth is lost.

The Procedure of Dental Implants 

Before treatment, your dentist will prepare the dental implant site by surgically removing the damaged tooth and any bone that may have been damaged. He or she may perform a bone graft if necessary, to prepare for the implant.

The dental implant is made of two parts: the implant post (which will act as the tooth root) and the implant restoration (which will mimic your natural tooth). After the preparation, your dentist will surgically place the dental implant post into the site. However, the implant restoration won’t be attached until the jaw bone has healed and fused with the implant post. After the site has healed, your dentist will attach the restoration to the post.

Types of Dental Implants

Single Tooth Implant

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the gums to replace missing tooth roots. Once the posts have fused with the jawbone, an abutment is placed on that implant and then a single crown will be attached to the abutment. This crown will feel and function like the lost tooth it replaced. 

Multiple Tooth Implant

If you’re missing more than one tooth, you can replace them with implant-supported dentures. These restorations are permanently fixed in your mouth, which means you don’t have to worry about removing and cleaning them. These dentures are also more stable than traditional dentures.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are an implant system designed to replace missing teeth in a patient's edentulous. This implant system consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of a tooth. These implants are smaller than traditional dental implants and typically don’t require a surgical procedure for placement. They are often inserted and the restoration installed to them in a single visit.

All-On-4 Dental Implants

All-on-4 dental implants are an advanced dental implant option that replaces an entire arch of missing teeth with just four implants. Each implant is strategically placed so that all four of them can securely support a specially-made full-arch denture to permanently replace all of the teeth in the top or bottom jaw. All-on-4 dental implants are an excellent option for patients who want to restore an entire arch of teeth in just one procedure.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a lifelong solution. They allow you to fully restore both the appearance and function of your smile.
