Implant Placement in Miami Lakes
While dentures and bridges replace the chewing surface of teeth, they fail to address the source of the issue. Dental implants work in tandem with classic restorations, improving upon their application and replacing the tooth from its root to its crown.
Titanium roots are placed directly into the jaw where the material fuses with the bone and generates a unified support system for both existing dental structure and necessary prosthesis. Restorations are then attached to the implant once the site has health and integrated with the natural dental ecology.
Dental implants require adequate bone density and volume before they can be placed. Bone grafting, ridge augmentation, or sinus lifts may be necessary to bolster jaw and gum health and enable a patient’s eligibility for implants.
Dr. del Castillo offers the following restorations with dental implants:
Single-unit crowns eliminate the need for a bridge and replace a missing tooth at any point in the smile. An implant is placed directly into the space where the root once occupied, replacing the root without altering any healthy teeth and preserving existing dental structure.
Multi-unit bridges replace up to a short row of teeth using two to three dental implants. This method can be essential for patients partially missing several teeth on one side of their smile.
Implant-supported dentures replace up to an entire arch of teeth using up to eight dental implants placed in an optimal position for both support and strength. Patients have the option between removable or fixed overdentures to fit their lifestyle.
