Dental Implants in Orlando, FL: Overmeyer Family Dental
Experts consider dental implants the best teeth replacement option because they are as stable as natural teeth. A dental implant restores not just the crown or the visible portion of a tooth, but also the root. While no dental appliance can completely simulate a living tooth, dental implants are the closest you’re going to get to the real thing. Your Orlando, FL dentists provide a dental implant and mini dental implants in Orlando, FL to replace one or several missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are synthetic tooth roots. A dental implant is a tiny screw usually made of titanium or another biocompatible material. During an implant procedure, the tiny screw is embedded into your jaw. After some time, the implant fuses with the surrounding bone, a process called osseointegration.
Your dentist will then uncover the implant to make sure that osseointegration is successful. Next, a small bar or abutment is attached to the implant, followed by the replacement tooth. Sometimes the abutment and the dental crown are placed at different stages. Dental implants can also be used to stabilize a complete denture. Several implants (usually about four to six) are attached to the upper and lower denture to keep them in place and improve chewing function.
Dental implants are a great tooth replacement option for many people. Please talk to our team about your specific need so that we can recommend the tooth replacement option that is right for you.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini implants are smaller in diameter than regular implants. Because of their size, mini implants can be placed in areas where the bone is thin while still providing maximum stability. Mini implants can be used to replace individual teeth or stabilize dentures, allowing you to eat and smile confidently. Best of all, mini implants do not require stitches, and the procedure can be completed in one visit.
While there is some controversy surrounding the use of mini dental implants (some doctors argue that they just don’t work as well as traditional implants), our team believes that there are certain situations where mini implants are preferable. Mini implants tend to integrate into the bone faster than traditional implants, allowing you to get your new teeth sooner. They also do not require as much bone tissue as traditional implants, so they are more accessible to patients who have experienced bone loss. Please talk to our team to determine if mini implants are right for you.
