Securely Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Dr. Schmitt in Altamonte Springs, FL, can provide dental implants that support the structure of your mouth and replace teeth. It is truly an art and a science, and if done properly, is the closest treatment to giving you back your natural teeth. The implant post is placed into the bone, creating a solid foundation for it to be snug and secure. An implant crown often made of porcelain, then replaces the visible portion of the new tooth, for natural esthetics and correct chewing. The implant crown is typically placed after a short healing period of about three months.
This complex, intricate process, when done properly by the right provider, can be simple for the patient and virtually pain-free. It is considered to be one of the most successful dental solutions we offer at Schmitt Prosthodontics. Patients who have suffered with cavities or gum disease for years can be successful with dental implants. Therefore, although they can be initially more expensive, they are usually an excellent investment. Additionally, having such a natural look and feel may give you the confidence you've been looking for.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- More natural looking
- Secure and comfortable
- Tends to last longer
- Helps to maintain the bone and gums
