At New Image Dentistry LLC, we perform restorative, general and restorative dental procedures. Our general and restorative dental procedures include dental implants, crowns, bridges and dentures. Dental implants in Sarasota FL are an ideal solution if you’re missing teeth and want a permanent and complete set. Implants are used to replace missing teeth with a permanent and stable anchor. They are ideal for patients who only have one or two missing teeth. Patients must be a candidate for dental implants and have sufficient bone and gum.
Dental implants in Sarasota FL are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone, making them a permanent and secure anchor to place an artificial tooth over. The entire procedure takes a couple of months. First, one visit to place the implant, and then a healing period of 2 to 3 months. After the healing period an appointment is made so that we can put the crown over the implant site to protect it. During the healing period the patient has to eat soft foods only. Many patients find they’re very happy with their implants once they’re completed. Implants are successful if the patient carries on with good oral health habits. Teeth should be free of gingivitis or gum disease.
After the dental implants in Sarasota FL, the crown is placed. Dental crowns are also used if the teeth have been highly damaged or decayed. The crown acts as a protective cover and makes the tooth stronger by reinforcing the jaw area. Dentures are a good option for patients who are missing more than two teeth and who don’t want to go through the costly procedure of having multiple implants put in. Our dental care office also extends our services to restorative dentistry for children as well as adults. For more information on our services, call New Image Dentistry, LLC today.
