When a tooth is so badly damaged that it isn’t salvageable, Orlando cosmetic dentist Dr. Puig may recommend a dental implant. These advanced restorations can replace a damaged or lost tooth, or act as a support for a bridge or denture to restore more than one missing tooth.

Dental implants don’t just replace a missing tooth. They have many other benefits as well, including the ability to:
The dental implant process consists of several steps. First, a treatment plan is devised with a clear vision of the restored smile. If the tooth remains, it is removed from the implant site, and a titanium post is placed into the jawbone to act as a “root” for your new tooth. An abutment is attached to the implant, to later support a natural looking crown.
Each stage of treatment is either performed in our Orlando dental office or in the office of a recommended specialist, typically an oral surgeon or periodontist. Each step is spaced out from the last, first to allow the implant to fuse with the bone in your jaw, and second for your gum to heal around the implant site. Once the implant and post have been placed and are stable, the crown will be attached to create a “tooth” that is strong, durable, and indistinguishable from your other teeth.
If you need replacement teeth, we invite you to learn more about dental implants at a consultation. Dr. Puig will be happy to answer your questions and explain your options. She is qualified to offer dental implant restorations to replace single teeth and to secure dentures, partials, and bridges.
Dental implants have been used extensively for many years and are a natural-looking, durable solution for missing teeth. Many traditional denture wearers have switched to implant secured dentures because it gives them back the control and convenience they had with their natural teeth.
