Strength and Security with Dental Implants
Dental implants are an aesthetically stunning system that replaces missing teeth from root to crown. They have a remarkable success rate as high as 98%. They can last a lifetime, providing strong, stable, and long-lasting support for a dental crown that looks indistinguishable from a natural tooth. Implants can hold single crowns, bridges, and full-arch dentures, such as Dr. Ajmo’s signature Teeth Next Day® treatment.
Dr. Ajmo is a diplomate of the ICOI and completed a Mastership at the Misch International Implant Institute. He is also Intravenous (IV) Sedation trained, and Jupiter Dentistry offers dental sedation to Jupiter patients who suffer from dental anxiety.
What are Tooth Implants?
Dental implants consist of a fixture and an abutment. These pieces are placed in the jaw along the area of the missing tooth. Implants organically integrate with the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration, giving the treatment the source of its strength and longevity.
Once the implant is fully integrated, we can place the crown. This is a custom-made artificial tooth that looks and functions like a natural one.
Their size, shape, and color are individualized to you, helping you achieve a stunning smile.
Why Dental Implants?
Not only are implants long-lasting and strong, but they also allow your dental crowns to function just like natural teeth. As a result, they also keep your jaw strong and bone-rich. This helps prevent premature aging and wrinkling around the jawline.
Gaps between teeth also act as food traps, increasing the risk of dental infections like gum disease and tooth decay. These infections can wear away at your teeth and cause further tooth loss. Dental implants not only fill the gap, but they are also easy to maintain. You can brush and floss them like your natural teeth to help reduce the risk of further oral problems that may end up costing you down the road.
Am I a Candidate?
The ideal implant candidate is in good dental health and with strong bones. Supplemental procedures can help patients who suffer from dental complications become candidates, and treatments like bone augmentations can be quite common.
It’s tough to judge candidacy online. For the most accurate assessment, we recommend coming into our office for a consultation.
How Much Do Implants Cost?
The price of the treatment can vary based on the number of teeth to replace. Depending on your individual needs, you may need a crown or a bridge. Dental implants can even hold full-arch dentures. The full treatment price may also depend on the need for additional procedures, such as bone or gum augmentation.
Implants last longer than other restorative procedures, which saves on replacement costs. They also help protect you from future dental problems associated with tooth loss, which means fewer visits to the dentist.
We place dental implants where the bone is strong. Although bone augmentation is not always necessary, it can be preferable if it means increasing the lifespan of your implant. The density of the bone, in particular, can play an important role.
Dr. Wyatt and Dr. Ajmo can also perform a similar procedure for patients who would like to extend or heal their gum lines. This treatment is known as gum augmentation.
At Jupiter Dentistry, we will show your options, risks, and benefits for you to choose the best path according to your desired results.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, there’s no need to worry. Dr. Wyatt and Dr. Ajmo are trained sedation dentists, and we offer IV Sedation to our dental implant patients. Safe and effective, you won’t feel a thing, and you’ll be conscious during the entire procedure.
