Rebuild Your Smile With The Help Of Dental Implants

At West Delray Smiles in Delray Beach, we know that dental implants are a popular way to replace one or more missing teeth. Made of titanium, implants are placed in the jawbone, where they act as artificial tooth roots. Over time, the bone fuses with the implant, providing a strong and stable foundation for a replacement tooth.

What’s involved with the dental implant process?

The first step is to have a consultation with our dentist to see if you are a good candidate for this restorative procedure. If you’re deemed to be a good candidate, the next step is to plan a date to have the implant placed in your jawbone. Once in place, the implant will need time to heal and become integrated with your bone. This integration process usually takes several months and is essential for long-term success.

After the healing process is complete, a dental crown or bridge can be placed on top of the implant, which will restore both the look and function of your natural tooth.

How should dental implants be cared for?

Dental implants require the same care as natural teeth. This means brushing and flossing daily and visiting us regularly for cleanings and checkups. It is also important to avoid hard foods (such as candy or ice), which can damage the implant.

Is anyone a candidate for dental implants?

Not necessarily. Factors such as the amount of available jawbone, the health of your gums, and even lifestyle factors can affect whether or not you are considered to be a suitable candidate.
