Dental Implants

Our dental implant procedure provides you with teeth that look natural and feel great. We use only the top-of-the-line materials: Titanium and Zirconia, which help ensure the durability of your new teeth. Dental implant placement is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry. When placed by the experienced oral surgeons at FDIOS, your dental implants should last a lifetime.

Single Tooth Implants

Need one or a few teeth replaced? Come see us for a consultation. Florida Dental Implants & Oral Surgery specializes in the placement of titanium implants and Zirconia crowns.

We’ll do a CT scan to get a detailed look at your teeth and jaw bone structure. Our surgeons will discuss with you the best treatment plan for your situation and whether or not bone grafting will be necessary. We have provided thousands of implants for patients under a variety of circumstances.

Who is eligible for dental implants?

Candidates for dental implants often have experienced one or more of the following:

Broken Teeth

Oral surgeons work to repair injured jaws and broken teeth, but teeth that can’t be properly restored can be replaced with dental implants.

Missing Teeth

Missing teeth lead to bone loss in the jaw. Dental implants integrate with the jaw bone and help maintain bone integrity.

Infected Gums/Bone

Infection in the gums and jaw can lead to serious health problems. Sometimes this infection can’t be eliminated without extracting teeth.

Dissatisfaction With Dentures

Many denture wearers often experience slippage, painful rubbing against the gums, loss of appetite, and inability to eat certain foods. Switching to dental implants can eliminate these problems.

Why Get Dental Implants?

When a tooth is lost, the integrity of the jaw bone may be compromised. Jaw bone that is not in contact with the root of a tooth can slowly erode, leading to the displacement of the surrounding teeth and, in some cases, infection. A dental implant can be embedded under the gum line and the bone will fuse with the implant through a process known as osseointegration. By maintaining the integrity of your jaw with a dental implant, you can save yourself from excess pain and dental work later on.

The Procedure

Full Mouth

Procedure Description
Once patients are satisfied with their research and are ready to move forward with New Teeth Now, they schedule a consultation with one of our highly skilled surgeons and an implant coordinator.

The first thing we do during your consultation is take a CT scan of your mouth, jaw, and teeth. The CT scan immediately gives the oral surgeon a high-resolution 3D model to analyze during your consultation. Because of the accurately detailed model of the patient’s facial structure, the surgeon is able to determine exactly where to place implants to ensure a successful procedure, and have it done in one day.

After you arrive on the day of your scheduled procedure, you and anyone accompanying you will be comfortably seated in our amphitheater/waiting area. Soon after, our anesthesiologist will escort you to the procedure room and put you in a nice, comfortable sleep through General Anesthesia. Teeth will be removed at this time, and the implants placed. The surgeon will then take an impression, or mold, of your mouth.

You’ll then be taken to a recovery room to rest. While you’re waking up, techs in our on-site lab are creating your teeth, which will then be custom fitted to your implants. As with all of our New Teeth Now patients, you will leave that day with a new set of  acrylic teeth. This initial set of teeth will be for temporary use as your implants fuse with your jawbone over a period of 6 months.

After 6 months, your implants will be firmly fused with your jawbone and ready for the placement of your permanent set of Zirconia teeth.

Single Tooth

Procedure Description
We will take a CT scan of your teeth and jaw to get an accurate map for the procedure. On the day of the procedure, our oral surgeon will sedate you with one of the following:

  • Local Anesthesia: The numbing of specific areas in your mouth through injection.
  • IV Sedation: The administering of mild doses of sedatives through the vein to reduce anxiety, block pain, and put patients into a twilight state.
  • General Anesthesia: Ensuring you will sleep soundly throughout the surgery by receiving drugs through a vein and breathing through a nasal tube.

If there is still a tooth remaining where the dental implant will be placed, the tooth will be extracted at this time. The surgeon will then clean and remove any infection present in the gum or bone in that area.

If the underlying bone isn’t yet dense enough for the placement of an implant, the surgeon will perform bone grafting. Natural or artificial bone material will be affixed to the bone area and given a healing period to fuse together. This time period is subject to vary according to the patient’s anatomy and healing.

After this healing period, your bone will be thick and dense enough for the implant placement procedure. You will return to our office to have the implant placed and then undergo a 6 month healing period as the implant fuses to the jaw.

After this second healing period, your final procedure will be a simple fitting of the crown onto the implant, which can be done in our office or at your local dentist.
