Dental implants are artificial tooth roots embedded into the jaw, taking the place of one or more missing teeth. They are used to permanently anchor a false tooth, such as a crown, bridge or denture. Compared to traditional bridges and dentures, implant-supported bridges and dentures look, feel, and function more like natural teeth. In addition, implants help preserve jaw bone mass which has both aesthetic and oral health benefits. At Elite Dental Care in Naples, FL, we recommend implants whenever possible because of the many benefits they offer. Check our special offers page for current implant discounts that are available.
Most people who get dental implants experience a successful outcome that often lasts several decades. Success rates are extremely high for this procedure – especially in patients with healthy gums and sufficient bone structure. Furthermore, implants are very low-maintenance in comparison to other tooth replacement solutions. In fact, you can treat an implant in much of the same way you treat your other teeth.
When planning dental implant treatment, the Elite Dental Care team personalizes implants to the functional and cosmetic needs of a patient. The crown, bridge, or denture that will sit on the implant is sized, shaped and color-matched for a natural look.
If you have one or more missing teeth or will soon be having a tooth extracted, Dr. Chavez can provide you treatment options, explain the benefits of each, and ensure you have complete information to make an informed decision based your goals and budget.
If you think dental implants may be right for you, we invite you to contact our office to schedule your one-on-one consultation. Dr. Chavez will evaluate your tooth replacement needs and help you determine if implants could be the solution for you.
