Do you have missing teeth but don’t want to endure the mess and hassle of removable dentures? If so, dental implants may be the ideal option for you.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution that is surgically placed in the jaw below the gumline. A dental crown is then attached to the implant, resulting in a stable bite.
At Palms Dental, we place and restore dental implants for patients in Bradenton and beyond.
The Dental Implant Process
At Palm Dental, Dr. Stock collaborates with a local dental implant specialist (periodontist) to surgically place the implant. The titanium implant post establishes a stable foundation for the prosthetic, and it can take several months for the jawbone to fuse to the base naturally.
During this time, we supply the patient with a temporary restoration to still eat, chew, and speak with comfort and ease.
Once the patient’s gums and jaw fully heal, Dr. Stock places the final, lab-fabricated crown in position. This final restoration matches the size, shape, and color of your natural smile.
The dental implant in the jaw is permanent, so it doesn’t require replacement. However, the crown typically lasts 10 to 15 years when properly cared for properly. Dr. Stock can quickly and efficiently adjust or restore your smile if the crown needs repair or replacement.
