Do you have a missing tooth, but are unsure if you should jump for a dental implant? If so, you are not alone. When it comes to any medical procedure, our team at Precision Periodontics & Dental Implants in Ocoee, Florida, understands the questions involved, which is why we are happy to talk to you about dental implants and why they are needed for many smile restorations.

Dental implants are a fantastic choice if you are looking for a long-term smile restoration. Restoring a lost tooth is important for your oral health because, without a tooth to connect to the jawbone, you could risk bone loss in your jaw. The dental implant acts as the root of the tooth, giving your jawbone the strength and support it needs to stay healthy.

Titanium is the main material when it comes to dental implants because they work so well with our bodies. Once the dental implant is surgically placed in your jaw by our periodontists, your bone will fuse around the implant, making it a healthy and strong anchor of support for your smile. During the healing period, we may suggest a diet of softer foods for your smile.

When your healing period is over, your regular dentist will be able to place a dental crown over the dental implant to complete the process. The dental crown is important because it will blend with your natural tooth, so you have a complete smile restoration.
