Dental Implants in Jupiter, FL
Dental implants are an aesthetically stunning system that replaces missing teeth from root to crown. They have a remarkable success rate of as high as 98% and can last a lifetime. Dental implants in Jupiter provide a strong, stable, and long-lasting support for a crown that looks indistinguishable from a natural tooth. They 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. Jupiter Dentistry offers sedation to 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 robust, but they also allow your dental crowns to function like natural teeth. As a result, they also help 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 just like natural teeth. This helps 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 has strong bones. Supplemental procedures can help patients who suffer from dental complications become candidates. Treatments like bone augmentations can be pretty common. It’s difficult to judge candidacy online. For the most accurate assessment, we recommend coming in for a consultation.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
The price of the treatment can vary based on the number of teeth that need replacing. Depending on your individual needs, you may need a crown or a bridge. Dental implants can even hold full-arch dentures. The whole treatment price may also depend on the need for supplemental 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.
Dental implants are best placed where the bone is strong. Although a bone augmentation is not always necessary, it can be preferable if it means increasing the lifespan of your dental implant. The density of the bone 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.
