If you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants will revitalize your smile. If you are missing several teeth, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge. That is how versatile implants are.
Similarly, if you are missing your whole set of natural teeth, a full bridge or full arch denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a number of implants strategically chosen by your doctor.
No matter what you’re in need of, Dental Implants of Ocala will help you achieve your perfect smile.
Dental implants act like natural teeth, from root to crown. They're made of highly durable and strong materials that can resist the force of eating tough, hard, or chewy foods like meat, nuts, and raw fruits and vegetables.
Dental implants integrate with the jaw bone, providing the same level of stimulation as that of natural tooth roots. Whenever you bite or chew, implants take on this pressure and help keep the jaw bone healthy.
Color, translucency, size, shape, and positioning are all considered when restoring dental implants. Dental implant crowns are artificial teeth that are indistinguishable from natural teeth!
Our dental implant services include:
It is common for the sinuses to enlarge following loss of the upper back teeth. This can preclude placement of dental implants in the upper back areas of the mouth, since the sinus is an air-filled space and dental implants need to be surrounded by solid bone. If you undergo a sinus lift augmentation/graft, your dentist will restore the sinus cavity to its original size, and replace the bone that has been lost as a result of the enlarged sinus. When the bone is replaced by bone grafting, it will usually take nine to twelve months to heal before the implants can be placed.
Sometimes, the ideal areas for dental implants do not have sufficient bone quantity to support the implants. If you are dealing with this issue, it is necessary to “borrow” bone from another area of your mouth and graft it into the deficient area. Often, the area of choice is from the chin or in the back of the jaw where your wisdom teeth used to be. If you elect to not use your own bone, your dentist may have donor bone options, that will fuse the same way to ensure proper density in the jaw.
When a tooth needs to be removed due to infection, it is not uncommon to have lost bone. If this is the case, bone grafting may be the perfect option for you. There are various types of grafting that can be done at the same time the tooth is removed. Then, the placement of a dental implant will occur at a later date.
We have three dimensional computer software that allows us to evaluate your dental CT scan for bone quality, bone quantity, and bone location, enabling the best possible placement of your dental implants. This also allows us to work closely and smoothly with your restorative dentist to ensure an ideal result where your dental implants are concerned.
Once your dental implant restoration is completed, it is important to keep the area clean and infection-free. Just as teeth can, dental implants can accumulate plaque and tartar. Whether you have just one tooth replaced by an implant or several, it is necessary to schedule a professional cleaning to keep your implants healthy. The time interval for these professional cleanings will be determined by your individual needs.
