Every year millions of Americans suffer from tooth loss as a result of either decay or accidental trauma. If you are one of the masses struggling with this condition, our practice has a solution for you! Drs. Higham and Sauchelli are doing their part to combat the negative impact of edentulism by providing our patients with high-quality dental implants in Jupiter.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial root that, paired with a dental crown, is designed to resemble the natural aesthetic of your teeth. Placing implants requires a surgical procedure that involves replacing the root of your teeth with metal, screw-like posts that support an abutment and the crown. After the metal post is in position, the crown is screwed on the top and the look of your tooth is fully restored.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you have lost one or several teeth and don’t have any serious medical conditions that would prevent you from undergoing a light surgical procedure, you might be a good candidate for implants. Other requirements include but aren’t limited to:
- Having a healthy jawbone
- No signs of extensive decay
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Restoring the full look and function of your smile naturally comes with a wide range of benefits including:
- Ability to chew and speak normally again
- Supporting facing muscles and providing a younger look
