What Are Dental Implants?

A dental Implant aisa permanent replacement for a missing tooth. They act and look just like a natural tooth. Th enamel on dental implants makes them blend beautifully with your own natural teeth. The implant creates a strong bond in your mouth for extra long lasting results.

The process is very straightforward. Dental implants require a simple surgery performed right in the Brandon Dental Care Office, here in Brandon. A small titanium post is positioned in the jaw bone where it heals and replaces the root of the tooth. Then, an artificial tooth is simply attached to the artificial root. The post will fuse with your bone in your jaw. It works just like the root of a natural tooth creating a strong bond. The dental implant will look and feel just like your natural teeth.

Sedation dentistry is available for anyone who is really concerned about the procedure. It is calming and relaxing making the entire process tolerable even for patients who are dealing with a lot of anxiety. Typically, patients have no more trouble with dental implant surgery than they would with a normal dentist appointment.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Success Rates

The success rates for dental implants is about 98%. The rate is based on how often and how well the implant bonds to the jaw bone.

Lasts a Lifetime

A bridge probably needs to be replaced at least every 10 years. A dental implant works just like a natural tooth, so it can last an entire lifetime.

Natural Look and Feel

The anchor post mimics the root of your tooth and the artificial tooth is attached, the same way a natural tooth is.

They Look Beautiful

Restore your smile. You can have a better smile with dental implants.

You Can Eat Anything You Want

The titanium post anchors so well into your jaw that a dental implant is as strong as natural teeth. You can eat anything you want without worrying about damaging your dental work.

Preservation of Facial Appearance

Dental implants are able to maintain your underlying facial appearance and bone structure after having lost a tooth.

Care and Maintenance

Dental implants never decay like natural teeth, and they resist stains so they are brilliantly easy to maintain.

Healthy Teeth Not Touched

Placing dental implants does not touch your other teeth during the installation procedure. Frequently, healthy teeth adjacent to the missing tooth need grinding down in order to anchor a bridge.
