What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root made of titanium, titanium alloy, or zirconia. Dental implants are usually less than half an inch long and are inserted in the jawbone in place of a missing tooth. Implants can replace one or several missing teeth or even all your teeth.
Unlike conventional treatments using bridges or dentures, dental implants offer patients a permanent solution for their missing teeth. Implants last longer and are more natural-looking.
Why Do I Need Dental Implants?
Replacing a tooth isn't just beneficial for aesthetics or for making it easier to eat or speak. The longer you live with a missing tooth or teeth, the more your gum ridges and bone shrink. This process is known as atrophy. If the human body is not using a part, such as the bone holding your teeth, it will take the calcium for use in other body parts that need it.
Implants are inserted in the bone to provide stimulation to the area once more, which stops bone atrophy. Furthermore, the implants maintain your bite structure and prevent teeth from shifting out of place, promoting your oral and overall health.
Comprehensive Dental Implant Services in Fort Myers
Our reputation for excellence and innovation in implant dentistry speaks for itself. Our dentist is not just a perfectionist but a seasoned artist dedicated to mastering the science and art of crafting a beautiful smile. He has the training, education, and experience not only to place dental implants but also create lifelike restorations. Coupled with his background in cosmetic dentistry, you can be confident that you'll receive a functional and aesthetically pleasing outcome.
Our state-of-the-art dental facilities guarantee precision planning and placement of implants. We utilize the finest dental materials available, and we pass our high standards to our patients. Our practice offers a wide range of dental implants, including:
Single Implants: If you have a missing tooth or need a tooth extracted because it's beyond repair, a dental implant offers a permanent solution. Our dentists will provide a single implant and crown to provide a fully functional tooth.
Implant-Supported Bridges: We can also use dental implants to support a fixed bridge in cases where patients have a few missing teeth in a row. Implant-supported bridges prevent the need to alter healthy neighboring teeth to support the bridge.
Implant Dentures: Dental implants can be life-changing, especially for individuals who have lost all teeth and depend on removable dentures. Our dentist will provide implant treatments coupled with a custom prosthetic to substitute the whole arch of teeth. Implant dentures offer you a stable, aesthetically pleasing, and permanent solution to removable dentures. We also offer overdentures, a unique style of implant-supported dentures with various advantages. Dr. Shartzer will explain which options are available to you and work with you to decide on the best type.
All-on-4®: Qualified patients may be able to receive an entire dental arch supported on only four dental implants. Each implant is carefully angled and placed to evenly distribute chewing force, allowing it to stay secure and stable for years without issues. This option can be both economical and efficient, making it a popular solution for those who qualify and need a full set of teeth.
Computer-Enhanced Treatment Planning
At our practice, we have advanced software imaging with CT scanning and panoramic x-rays. These images allow our dentist to evaluate your oral structure in three dimensions, showing bone and nerve location, bone quality, and bone density. This helps in ensuring the optimal placement for your dental implants.
Bone Grafting for Stronger, Healthier Jaws
Sometimes, the best areas for dental implants may not have adequate bone quality for supporting the implants. In these cases, it is necessary to supplement the weak area with a bone graft. Our seasoned dentist will provide exceptional bone grafting services before the implant surgery to strengthen your jawbone and make dental implant placement possible.
What Can I Expect During the Dental Implants Process?
Your dental implants experience will vary based on whether you are getting a single implant or having multiple teeth replaced. Regardless, the whole process requires multiple appointments with our dentist. These dental visits will entail consultation and planning, preparation of the implant site, implant placement, and adding the custom restoration. The timeframe for the full process will vary from patient to patient, based on their rate of healing and unique needs.
