Fort Myers, FL
Welcome to Tropic Dental. If you are interested in having dental implants to help repair damaged teeth, then you have come to the right place. Our clinic incorporates the newest technology and techniques, alongside our team of highly skilled dentists and staff. We aim to provide you with the best results in regards to this dental procedure.
A quick introduction to dental implants: this is a post or frame, usually made from metal, that is surgically inserted into the jawbone that lies beneath the gums. Once the dental implant is placed into position, attaching false replacement teeth will become considerably easier while also providing a higher level of stability than standard dentures.
Are Dental Implants For You
Dental implants have the advantage of appearing far more natural when compared to dentures. They are also more secure in comparison as the false teeth will clamp down onto the implants that are attached to the jawbone.
However, not everyone is likely suitable for this type of dental procedure. Our team of specialists will be evaluating clients who wish to have this procedure done. A patient must be in good health to make use of dental implants. The jawbone and gums must also be in good shape. This is so that the implants will be able to be adequately secured without any risks.
Patients who are also susceptible to infections are not suitable for this procedure. Dental implants will take several hours to complete, and more appointments might be needed afterward. Children are also not suitable for dental implants as their body is still developing. We also advise potential clients who grind their teeth to refrain from having this operation as they can inadvertently damage their implants due to excessive pressure from their grinding.
Once our dentist has properly evaluated you and determined that you are a good fit for dental implants, the next step will be scheduling when the procedure will commence. Our patient will be treated using local anesthesia. There are instances where we will suggest the procedure be done in a general hospital which will depend on the patient's needs.
Once you have been evaluated and deemed to be a good candidate for dental implants by our team, it is essential to follow all instructions given to you. Proper hygiene will go a long way to ensure your implants will last for as long as possible.
Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants are a perfect replacement for damaged or missing teeth as they appear natural and stay perfectly in place. Dental implants are implanted to the jawbone surgically. Hence, it is treated as a permanent procedure and is designed for longevity.
With our dental implant procedure, we try to ensure that the operation will not cause any discomfort or pain. Our patients will be given a local anesthetic during the surgery. However, just like with tooth extraction, some discomfort might be felt during the first week after the operation.
