For a patient who has lost one or more teeth, our dentists may recommend dental implants in Jupiter, Florida. A dental implant is made up of a dental implant post, a dental restoration, and an abutment.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to look and feel like natural teeth. The dental implant post is designed to become a part of your smile as the jawbone heals. Because of this, dental implants can last for years, or even a lifetime. A dental implant can restore your ability to speak and eat properly and with ease. Dental implants can also restore the beauty of your smile, so they can give you a boost in self-esteem and confidence.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Most people are candidates for dental implants, but there are a few exceptions. Those who smoke or use tobacco products may be counseled to quit before a dental implant is placed. If you do have insufficient jawbone structure, you may not be a good candidate for dental implants. However, we may recommend that Dr. Sauchelli place a bone graft so that a dental implant may then be placed.
We invite you to contact our office at 561-746-8095 today for more information about dental implants and to schedule your next appointment with Dr. Higham and Dr. Sauchelli.
