Dental Implants FAQ
Dental Implants Create Perfect Smiles
A missing tooth can jeopardize your total oral health. Not only is your appearance affected, but your remaining teeth, oral function, and bone density also suffer repercussions. Dr. Mary Gharagozloo partners with a local, trusted, periodontist to transform smiles using dental implants in Orlando, FL.
The results are outstanding – Only you and your dentist will be able to differentiate between the dental implant and your natural teeth. You will no longer need to give up your favorite foods or feel embarrassed due to your appearance. Our dental implants garner a 95% success rate, so you can feel confident your dental implant will take beautifully and last with longevity.
How do dental implants work?
A dental implant can help maximize your oral health and appearance. They share the burden of chewing, preserving your bite integrity. Neighboring teeth become more stable, allowing you to retain jaw bone. Dental implants are the best solution for:
Balancing bite pressure
- Expertly matching the color of surrounding teeth
- Replacing the root and crown of a missing tooth
- Maintaining facial contours and your jaw bone density
- Offering undetectable, natural-looking replacement teeth
- Preserving functions of smiling, chewing, and speech
- Keeping your current hygiene care routine
- Being a biocompatible match with the environment and your body
- Providing a replacement which cannot decay, need a root canal, or become infected
What does the procedure involve?
There are two phases to the dental implants process. First, our talented periodontist will surgically place the tiny implant posts. Next, Dr. G herself places the implant restoration (implant crown) to complete the process. Dr. G and our preferred periodontist have a trusting relationship. Throughout the entire process, they regularly communicate with each other on the status of your smile. The process itself is often so smooth - our dental implant patients regularly ask us, "Why didn't I do this before!?"
The benefits of dental implants are numerous. Surrounding teeth will not drift, as they do when a tooth is missing. Your oral health and jaw function will be preserved, allowing you to avoid problems in the future. Your bones will maintain good health and you can avoid the aged appearance of a receding jaw bone. Also, your implant will be so natural in appearance, only you will know it's an implant.
At Mary Gharagozloo DDS, we utilize dental implants in many ways including: replacing a single tooth, multiple teeth, and securing anchor dentures. With implant-supported dentures, the function and fit of dentures are greatly improved with just a few implants holding them in place. As an affordable and effective way to ensure the security of your dentures, we highly recommend implant supported dentures to all denture-wearers.
