Dental Implants Procedures
If you’ve lost some of your teeth or want a completely new set, Florida Dental Implants can help. We’ve pioneered a cutting-edge procedure that allows you to get your new teeth in one day during a pain-free procedure.
Sound too good to be true? It’s not.
Here’s how we do it.
What Makes Us Different?
We’re different in a couple of ways. First, we don’t tell people they aren’t candidates for dental implants due to bone loss in their gums. Nor do we tell them they’ll need a bone graft. Our oral and maxillofacial surgeons embed titanium implant rods all the way into the bone structure of your cheekbones or jawbones, if necessary, to ensure the rod is securely fixed in your mouth.
Second, while many dental implants take months or even years to achieve, we do our procedures in one day. That’s right – you’ll leave the same day with your new teeth. Implant surgery is done under general anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing. There’s simply no reason to worry about pain or have dental anxiety.
How Does It Work?
When you come in for your consultation, you’ll have a CT scan completed in our office. That allows our surgeons to render a 3D model of your head and determine exactly where the implants should be placed.
On the day of surgery, you’ll meet with our anesthesiologist who will escort you to a treatment room. You’ll receive general anesthesia and go to sleep. This is not sedation – it’s the same type of anesthesia used in hospital operating rooms.
Next, one of our oral surgeons will perform any necessary extractions before placing the implant rods in your mouth. Impressions will be made of your teeth, if they’re available.
As you’re waking up in the recovery room, your the implant caps will be placed on the titanium rods. When you awake, you’ll have your New Teeth Now!
Will It Hurt?
No, it won’t. Since you’re given general anesthesia, we can give you a long-lasting painkiller that prevents discomfort for several hours after you wake up. We’ll also give you a supply of prescription painkillers for use at home, though most of our patients say they don’t need them.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are much different than crowns, partials or other types of dental work you may have. The titanium rods last a lifetime and the implant crowns are as strong as your natural teeth. With proper care and nutrition, the crowns should last a lifetime, too.
I’ve Been Told I’m Not a Candidate
If you’ve been told you can’t get dental implants due to bone loss in your mouth, come to Florida Dental Implants. We’re one of the very few clinics in North America that perform zygomatic implants, meaning the rod is embedded into the cheekbone. The likelihood that we can’t treat you is slim, and we’re proud to say yes to patients when others said it couldn’t be done.
