Dental Implants Boynton Beach florida

A dental implant is a restorative dentistry procedure used to restore a lost tooth. An implanted tooth looks exactly like a natural tooth and even functions the same. It will have you smiling like never before.

Tooth loss can be due to:

  • Dental Decay
  • Trauma
  • Gum disease/gingivitis
  • Ageing

If a lost tooth left is not restored, it may result in some other dental problems. The gap between the tooth can lead to the tooth moving towards the gap. Which in return leads to the loss of a tooth or, A gap between the tooth.

An Implanted tooth involves 3 parts:

  • Implant
  • Abutment
  • Crown

Implant dentist in Boynton Beach will first take a preliminary study of the tooth loss and suggest the best treatment for the patient. Before starting with the treatment, a dental x-ray will be taken so that it will be easy to analyse the jaw or gums of the patient. Before starting the treatment, a local anesthesia will be given to numb the area where an operation is required. Once it is done, implant dentist will drill to the gums to make a hole which will make a place for the implant or implants. Once the implant is placed inside the gums, they will make a stitch to in gum to close the hole so that it will takes time to heal and fuse with the jaw bone. Once the surgery is healed, the next step of procedure needs to start.

Before starting the next step, a dentist will again take an x-ray of the portion to check the status of the implant. If the implant is fixed perfectly and is fused with the bone, then they will start with the next step. In this step, a dentist will again cut the gum line to make a gap to place an abutment over the implant. After placing an abutment, gums will be sutured. Once the Abutment is fixed to the implant, a crown will be placed on the abutment which will be the final step of the dental implant treatment. Once the crown is placed, you should avoid having any solid and hot foods/beverages for at least 2 days. The pain of the surgery will be reduced in a couple of days. If the pain persists, visit the dental office for more medications. Take the best care of your implant to make it a great success.
