Mt. Dora Dental Implants

Restoring Your Smile and Quality of Life

Dental implants can help people who have missing teeth or teeth that cannot be repaired get their smile and biting power back. Dental implants replace the roots of teeth in the mouth and create a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Our experienced dentist is committed to providing you with the best quality dental implants to help you feel confident about your teeth again.

Teeth supported by dental implants are either permanently fixed in your mouth or removable and are designed to function just like your real teeth. They can be used to replace individual teeth, several teeth in a row, or even support a full set of dentures. We offer the latest dental implant technology and the most comfortable dental implant surgery procedures.

When Do I Need Dental Implants?

When you have missing teeth or teeth that are beyond repair, dental implant surgery may be the best solution for you. If you have an individual missing tooth, a dental implant can be preferable to a bridge because it is more durable and doesn’t require the teeth on either side to be crowned. If you have multiple missing teeth in a row, several replacement teeth can be supported with as few as two dental implants.

Dental implants can:

  • Replace a single missing tooth
  • Support a dental bridge to replace multiple teeth
  • Support a full set of dentures

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Look and feel like real teeth
  • High level of comfort
  • Improved chewing and biting ability
  • Can last 40 years or more when cared for properly
  • 95% or higher success rate

Types of Dental Implants

Single-Tooth Dental Implants

A single missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant that creates an artificial root to hold the replacement tooth in place. The implanted tooth will effectively look and function just like a real tooth. This is a good option when you want to replace an individual tooth without the need for dental bridgework.

Implant-Supported Dental Bridges

When you have two or more missing teeth in a row, an implant-supported dental bridge is an option. This requires fewer implants than if you were to replace each tooth individually. For example, three replacement teeth can be supported with two dental implants.

Implant-Supported Dentures

If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, it can be done through dental implant surgery. A full set of snap-in dentures can be supported by between two and four dental implants. The dental implants create a strong root system to hold the dentures in place, restoring your smile and chewing ability.

Implant-supported dentures do not slide around as regular dentures do, which makes them more stable when chewing and speaking. However, they can still be easily removed for cleaning. Implant-supported dentures are one of the best ways for someone who is missing a full set of teeth to improve their quality of life.

Comfortable Dental Implant Process

We are happy to be able to provide high-quality dental implants for Mount Dora residents and strive to make the process as comfortable and accessible to you as we can. We will discuss implant options with you and decide together what the best option for your teeth and budget is. We want to help restore the appearance and strength of your teeth through the most advanced dental implant surgery.

The actual implantation process is a simple procedure that can take as little as half an hour, depending on the number of teeth that we are replacing. Once we determine that dental implant surgery is right for you, we will discuss all the details of the procedure with you to ensure you are fully comfortable. Depending on the patient, dental implants can take up to six months to heal, and we will be there for you throughout the whole recovery process.

Whether you have just one missing tooth and want to fill in the gap with a dental implant, or you are considering dental implant-supported dentures as an alternative to traditional dentures, we can help. Don’t wait any longer to get back a healthy, beautiful smile and regain your ability to bite and chew. Let us provide you with a consultation to determine the best course of action for your teeth.
