Dental Implants – Are They Right For You?

Dental Implant Dental implants are the most natural tooth replacement option available. At Artistic Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Miami FL, Dr. Yon Elejabarrieta uses dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth, secure dentures, and gives patients worry-free smiles. But you may be wondering if dental implants are right for you. To find out, answer the following questions:

Are you missing teeth?

  • Do you want a long-lasting solution to replace missing teeth?
  • Are you tired of dealing with dentures that hurt, slip, and require more and more adhesive to stay in place?
  • Do you dislike the idea of replacement teeth that you have to remove to clean?
  • Are you spending more money and time dealing with an uncomfortable and/or unattractive bridge or denture?

The Dental Implant Solution

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then we invite you to consider the advantages of implant dentistry. Dental implants restore the appearance, function, and comfort of smiles marred by missing teeth. Your custom implant solution may involve individual implants to replace missing teeth scattered throughout your smile or an implant-secured denture that remains fixed in place – with no slippage!

Here’s how implants work: a tiny titanium screw placed in the jawbone secures a custom prosthetic – either a dental crown or multiple replacement teeth. Because implants mimic natural teeth so closely, they even stop the jawbone loss that occurs when teeth are missing. This can result in a more youthful appearance because facial structures regain the support provided by the teeth and jaw.

Dental Implant Candidates

The ideal candidate for dental implants has good jawbone mass and healthy gums. It’s also important not to smoke, as smoking delays healing and can jeopardize implant success. Dr. Yon will examine your smile and discuss your lifestyle and habits to determine whether implants are a good choice for you.

Your Smile Depends on It!
