Dental Implants in Naples, FL

Losing a tooth isn't a big deal when you're a kid; in fact, it's to be expected. Losing a tooth as an adult, however, is a serious problem. If you lose one of your adult teeth, you'll need a dentist to help restore your smile and safeguard your oral health. There are several cosmetic dentistry techniques that can fill in the gap left by a missing tooth—the most substantial of which is a dental implant. If you have otherwise healthy teeth and gums, Dr. Bradley Piotrowski, DDS can discuss dental implants with you and whether or not you would be a good candidate.

Benefits of Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is implanted directly into the jaw. If you have the means and are deemed a good candidate, you should strongly consider getting a dental implant.

  • Permanent Replacement: A dental implant is meant to replace your existing tooth for a lifetime. Bridges and dentures, on the other hand, need to be replaced after a few years.
  • Easy Maintenance: Unlike dentures, you don't remove your implants to clean them. You can brush and floss your implants as you would your natural teeth.
  • Good-Looking Results: Once your dental implant is installed, it will be virtually impossible for others to tell it apart from your natural teeth. Your implant will also function just like your natural teeth.

Dental Implant Process

Before you get serious about dental implants, you should know what to expect. Between local anesthetic and Dr. Piotrowski's expertise in sedation dentistry, you'll find the process to be painless and straightforward.

  • Implantation: After an initial consultation, Dr. Piotrowski will insert the screw-like implant into the gum. This implant is designed to replace the root of your missing natural tooth.
  • Osseointegration: Over the next six months or so, your mouth will heal around the implant as the implant fuses to your jawbone. This ensures that the implant is securely anchored inside your mouth.
  • Crown Installation: Finally, Dr. Piotrowski places the artificial crown atop the implant abutment. The crown is custom designed to ensure the best possible appearance and function.
