Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in Sarasota
Patients who are missing teeth have a strong and beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants can improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor precisely attached to the jawbone.
By imitating an entire natural tooth from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Patients with dental implants enjoy restored function, which allows for a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your health and quality of life.
Implants can replace missing teeth and anchor crowns and bridges, or partials and full dentures to eliminate potential slipping. Dr. Hoffman works closely with reputable, talented oral surgeons and periodontists for a multidisciplinary approach to implant placement.
Once the implants are secured, you’ll return to our Sarasota dental office for the restoration. Our lab will fabricate a handcrafted, permanent crown, bridge, or denture following the instructions from Dr. Hoffman's design that has been customized for you. These new teeth will match the color and size of your natural teeth; the final restoration will be secured in our office and it will blend seamlessly with your smile.
Step by Step
After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Hoffman will be able to let you know if a dental implant is the best indicated long-term option for you. Good bone density and oral health are prerequisites. The first stage of the procedure involves oral surgery in which a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Nature will take its course, allowing your bone tissue to fuse with the titanium post; this creates the necessary solid foundation to support the final restoration.
Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your health and quality of life.
