Dental Implant Candidates in Naples, FL

Dental implants have been praised by a wide range of patients in need of tooth replacement following injuries, decay, or other dental conditions that lead to the loss of permanent teeth. Some type of placeholder—whether it be a bridge, dentures, or rooted implant—is needed to preserve the structure of the remaining teeth and protect the gum tissue from infection caused by more frequent exposure to bacteria. Dental implants are often the most favorable, because they preserve underlying bone tissue and function just like regular teeth for easy ongoing maintenance. If you have one or more missing teeth, you should not hesitate to schedule an appointment with Dr. Bradley Piotrowski, DDS, MSD, who can introduce you to all the benefits of dental implants in a comfortable setting at our Naples periodontal practice. Keep reading to learn if you will be a good candidate for dental implants with us.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is made up of a screw and root, which is capped with a custom-fitted porcelain crown that will be made to match the shade of surrounding natural teeth. The implant bonds directly to the jawbone to avoid bone recession and secure a comfortable fit with the durability of one's natural teeth. After treatment with dental implants, it will be hard to spot which teeth are natural and which ones have been replaced with crowns.

Who should get dental implants?

Dental implants can be used for single or multiple tooth replacement, and they are available to a wide range of patients. However, there are still some requirements for patient candidacy that will ensure the best results in every treatment.

  • Patients in generally good health – You should be in good health overall and have positive oral healthcare habits to promote the proper healing of dental implants. You will need to have healthy gum tissue and adequate jawbone to support the implant, which is why early treatment following tooth loss is recommended.
  • Patients seeking a long-lasting solution – Dental implants do require more of an investment than other solutions like fixed bridges, but they will stand the test of time and reduce the maintenance required for ongoing dental care.
  • Patients ready for extensive treatment – The entire process of dental implant treatment can take six months or more, depending on how quickly the gum tissue surrounding the implant heals. Still, even with the length of treatment, you will remain comfortable during every visit to the periodontist with the use of sedation dentistry in each step of the process.
