Missing teeth can change your smile, speech, oral function and facial structure. Dental implants are the closest restoration to natural teeth, offering benefits for improving your oral aesthetics, health and function. At Optum Dental Arts, we offer advanced implant dentistry by our experienced implant dentist, Dr. Roderick Davies. If you live in the Tampa Bay area and want to explore dental implants for replacing missing teeth, come see us at our dental center near Carrollwood.
Dental implants are designed to function like natural teeth. The post of the dental implant is the “root” of the tooth restoration, placed in the jawbone. Dental implants come in a variety of lengths and sizes for various types of dental restorations. The post is usually made from titanium and inserted into the jawbone through oral surgery, then fitted with an abutment to attach to a dental bridge, denture or dental crown for tooth restorations.
Excellence in Implant Dentistry
One of the key components of implant dentistry is the osseointegration process. This is when the bone fuses to the implant to secure it permanently in place. To ensure the implant is successful, Dr. Davies uses the most advanced dental technology and imaging. Placing the implant precisely is vital for the bone fusion process and the appearance, function and durability of the implant. Dr. Davies uses cutting-edge 3D imaging to plan every implant procedure, whether the patient is receiving one implant or several for a full mouth reconstruction.
Dental implants are popular due to their exceptional function. Implants secure the restoration in place for improved chewing and appearance, but they also improve the structure of the jawbone. Dental implants stimulate bone growth to reduce loss of bone in the jaw, which can help patients maintain a more youthful facial structure, even after tooth loss.
If you have lost one or more teeth, dental implants are the premium option for restoring your smile. At Optum Dental Arts, we offer single dental implants topped with dental crowns or multiple dental implants to restore your complete smile.
