Treat Your Tooth Loss with Dental Implants

Struggling with tooth loss? Here at Inspiration Dental in Riverview, FL, Dr. Janis Milne offers dental implant treatment help revitalize her patients' smiles after they've lost either a single tooth or multiple teeth. Read on to learn how implants can restore your natural, healthy smile! 

What dental implants can do for you

Dental implants are life-like tooth replacements that not only recreate the lost tooth structure, but the tooth roots as well. As a result, implants not only restore oral functionality, but they also help prevent jaw bone loss and shrinkage by stimulating the muscles in the jaw. When your dentist inserts the titanium implant, a process called osseointegration takes place. This is when the titanium post fuses with the rest of the bone. Osseointegration takes about 3 to 6 months to complete after initial placement.

The next step is simple enough. Your Riverview dentist inserts a screw in the titanium post, places an abutment on the screw, and fastens a crown matching the rest of your teeth on top of it. After that, you'll be able to walk out with a new and improved smile!

Some of the benefits of dental implants include that they...

  • Have a 95% success rate.
  • Can last a lifetime if taken care of properly.
  • Prevent shrinkage as mentioned above.
  • Are an inconspicuous treatment option
  • Restore functions like speaking, chewing, and biting into food.
  • Can be used to replace one or multiple missing teeth.

To properly maintain dental implants, you need to make sure that you brush twice a day to remove food debris and eliminate the accumulation of acid-producing bacteria. Floss everyday, at least once, to ensure food and bacteria are removed from between teeth. Additionally, make sure to visit our Riverview office every six months for a proper checkup and cleaning.
