Smiling everyday is already part of our life. We can’t live without smiling, it builds your trust, makes you feel confident and helps you express your actual mood. When you lose a tooth it becomes frustrating and you might be afraid to smile again due to embarrassment.
At Lumina Dental in Tampa Bay we provide dental implant services, an efficient way to replace your tooth and recover your beautiful smile.
A dental implant is essentially a titanium pin inserted into the jawbone. The titanium pin is lightweight and biocompatible. After a period of healing, it will function in a similar manner to the root of a natural tooth.
The procedure is quick, painless and can be completed in one visit, once the implant is placed and healed, the final restoration of your tooth can be completed.
A Crown, Implant Bridge, or Overdentures can be placed over the implant to restore function. They are considered the longest term restorations and are comfortable, natural looking and function effectively.
Can anyone get dental implants?
According to your medical & dental history and to your jaw bone quantity and quality, your dentist will determine either you are a good candidate for dental implants or not.
Is the implant surgery painful?
The dentist will give you local anesthesia and even sedation so that you can relax during surgery. Pain after surgery is minimal, but about 50% of the patients reported some swelling, but do not worry, your dentist will prescribe you anti-inflammatory drugs and pain killers.
Can I have fixed prosthesis on the same day of the implant surgery?
Generally, you should wait between 3-6 months for complete bone integration before loading of the fixed prosthesis, however, in some recent implant systems loading of the bridge can be done within few weeks according to the case.
How long will the dental implant last?
In the last five years, the dental implants success rate varies from 95% to 98%, so once the bone integration occurs, the dental implant will last in your jaws forever.
Also, fixed prosthesis can last up to 15 years.
What should I do to ensure long term success of a dental implant?
You should take care of your artificial teeth as if they are natural; brush your teeth twice per day and visit your dentist for a regular checkup.
