Dental Implants for Boca Raton, FL
People lose teeth for a variety of reasons. In some cases, tooth loss is tied to a particular oral health problem, like decay or gum disease. In other cases, it may be related to an injury. Regardless of the cause, dental implants provide patients with a new way of replacing lost teeth. A dental implant is a small piece of titanium that’s surgically placed in the jawbone. The implant replaces the tooth root, and the total number of implants you receive is determined entirely by the type of restoration you’re receiving.
Once your implant(s) has been placed, the osseointegration process begins. During this particular phase of treatment, the jawbone fuses with to the implant(s), creating a bond that mimics the bond between the jaw and your natural tooth roots. Thanks to this process, your implant(s) act as a secure anchor for your new prosthesis. Dental implants are versatile enough to secure a single implant or a full denture.
