Why a Dental Implant Is the Gold Standard Tooth Replacement
Losing a tooth can have a devastating effect on your self-esteem, but today’s dental implants mean a natural-looking and permanent tooth replacement solution.
In our Sarasota, FL dental office, we utilize the latest dental technologies to give you a dental implant that looks and functions like a natural tooth.
Further, our top Sarasota, FL dentist takes great measures to make sure your restoration tooth matches your smile—down to the tooth’s shade and shape—right here at Deborah Simpkins, DMD.
Dental Implants and the Gold Standard
A dental implant is not only custom-designed to fit your smile, but it is also a permanent solution to tooth loss.
The process begins with an assessment by our cosmetic dentist. If you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is implant placement.
A dental implant is a thin titanium post surgically implanted in your jaw. This post bonds with your jawbone over several months, creating a solid foundation for your restoration tooth.
A dental implant is not something that requires special attention. No adhesives. No realignments. No slippage. You simply care for your restoration the same way you care for natural teeth.
Additionally, if you have multiple missing teeth, a few dental implants can support an entire arch of life-like restoration teeth.
We think this qualifies dental implants for gold-standard status. How about you?
Caring for Your Dental Implant
As mentioned, dental implants require no specialized care. You simply brush and floss at least twice per day, and see our cosmetic dentist and hygienist regularly.
Without regular dental visits, including dental cleanings, you can develop gum infections or periodontal disease, which may cause your dental implant to fail—similar to the way a natural tooth fails without upkeep.
