Implants Q & A


Achieve a Lasting Smile with Dental Implants in Fort Lauderdale

Missing teeth can significantly impact your confidence, oral health, and overall well-being. At Excellence in Dentistry, we offer comprehensive dental implant solutions in Fort Lauderdale to restore your smile and function.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. They mimic the natural structure of a tooth, consisting of:

  • Implant body: A biocompatible titanium screw surgically placed in your jawbone, acting as the artificial tooth root.
  • Abutment: A small connector piece that attaches to the implant and supports the crown.
  • Dental crown: The custom-made tooth restoration that replicates the appearance and function of your natural tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Unmatched longevity: Implants can last a lifetime with proper care, unlike traditional dentures or bridges that require replacement over time.
  • Natural look and feel: Implants function and feel just like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
  • Prevents bone loss: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone resorption that often occurs with missing teeth.
  • Improved oral health: Implants help maintain proper tooth alignment, reducing the risk of gum disease and other complications.
  • Minimal maintenance: Dental implants require the same care routine as your natural teeth – brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups.

Dental Implant Cost in Fort Lauderdale:

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the number of implants needed, the complexity of the procedure, and your individual dental needs. We understand that cost is a significant consideration, and our team is here to help you navigate the process. We will provide you with a transparent cost estimate after a thorough consultation and discuss your insurance coverage options.

Insurance Coverage and Prior Authorization:

Many dental insurance plans offer coverage for dental implants. Our experienced team can assist you in contacting your insurance provider to determine your specific coverage and help you obtain any necessary prior authorization before proceeding with treatment.

The Dental Implant Process:

The dental implant process typically involves several stages:

1. Consultation and Planning: We will assess your individual needs, perform a comprehensive oral examination, and discuss your treatment options. X-rays and CT scans may be necessary to determine bone density and plan implant placement.

2. Implant Placement: Under local anesthesia, your oral surgeon will carefully place the implant body into your jawbone. Stitches may be used to close the incision site.

3. Healing Time: The implant needs time to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This healing period typically takes several months, allowing the bone to grow around the implant and provide a strong foundation for the restoration.

4. Placing the Healing Cap: Once the implant is fully integrated, a temporary healing cap is placed on the implant to protect the area while the gums heal.

5. Placing the Restoration: After the gums have healed, a final impression is taken to create your custom-made dental crown, bridge, or denture. The permanent restoration is then securely attached to the implant, providing you with a natural-looking and fully functional tooth replacement.
