North Miami Beach Dental Implant treatments

Single Tooth Implant Placement


Why an Implant for Just One Tooth?
Traditionally, a missing tooth might have been replaced with a fixed bridge. But that requires altering the anatomy of healthy teeth adjacent to your missing one. Instead of replacing one tooth, you end up treating two others. A dental implant is a root form metal (titanium) device designed to replace missing teeth. The device is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Unlike a dental bridge, an implant is permanent. A dental implant is designed to act as the tooth root and can anchor an artificial tooth or teeth such as a crown, bridge or removable prosthesis.

Single implants provide many advantages, including:

  • Implant options can last for life
  • Non-invasive to other surrounding teeth
  • Preserve natural tooth spacing and alignment
  • Custom restorations that include porcelain crowns
  • Implants look and feels like a natural tooth

Dental implants are tremendously strong; so strong, that they can sustain the weight of multiple teeth at one time. When paired together in sets of 6 implants, your entire upper or lower arch that have missing teeth can be restored!

There is no need for an individual implant to be set in each missing tooth. Instead, the implants work together to support a streamlined bridge that spans the length of the entire arch of teeth.
Say Goodbye to lose Dentures!

An all-on-6 North Miami Beach patients can enjoy the freedom of going denture-free. This is because the dentures placed are durable prosthesis that are permanently affixed in place.

Advantages of fixed denture include:

  • Easier care and maintenance
  • Clearness when speaking
  • Enhanced tasting and chewing of food
  • Confidence of an aesthetic permanent smile

All-on-6 Bridge:


Why a bridge instead of a denture?
A bridge is fixed permanently in place in order supported by 6 or 8 implants. Number of dental implants is dependent on patient’s bone structure and other factors. Dental implant supported bridge treatments provide a permanent solution that denture patients only previously imagined!

Treatment
The treatment procedure and number of visits is dependent on the patient’s anatomy and specific conditions. In most cases, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge over implants installed. Many patients state that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had expected.
