Bal Harbour Smiles Announced Dental Implants in Miami Beach

Miami Beach, FL, June 20, 2017 – People are living longer than ever, and while regular brushing, flossing and checkups allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime, sometimes our teeth just cannot keep up. If you have lost a tooth (or a few teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health. At Bal Harbour Smiles, we can provide patients with dental implants in Miami Beach, FL.


A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.


The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease.


Single or Multiple Implants


Implants are versatile. If you are only missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will do the trick. If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge (a set of replacement teeth). Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth with a distinct number of implants.


Advantages Over Dentures or Bridges


Conventional bridges and dentures are not fixed to the bone, and can therefore be unstable. This can make it difficult to eat or smile with confidence. Dental implants not only look more natural but also feel and function more like normal teeth, with a stronger biting force. Because they do not directly rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants do not compromise the health of your natural teeth. In fact, bridges are only expected to last seven to ten years, and even less with root canals, whereas implants will typically last a lifetime.
