Our dentist office serves the St. Petersburg, FL area. During our work with our patients, the topic of dental implants frequently comes up. Dental implants are a proven way to keep your bite in shape. A dental implant has the ability to offer the security of a titanium anchor that has fused to your jaw bone. This is one of the most secure foundations possible for a crown. In addition dental implants allow your dentist to avoid having to grind down the two teeth on either side of the problem area. Normally the ground down teeth would need crowns to help serve as anchor points on either side of an artificial tooth.
The special nature of dental implants is its ability to fuse with the bone material in the jaw. This isn’t just a snug fit. The nature of titanium actually allows the jaw bone area to fuse with the titanium pin over time. This process usually takes a few months to occur. To give your jaw time to fuse with the pin, you’ll have some temporary pieces of dentistry in place to help make the fusing time comfortable for your bite.
We always mention to our St. Petersburg patients that implants are a long term investment. If anything attached to the implant, like a crown, happens to break, the implant stays in place and just the crown is replaced. The implant is designed to far outlast whatever is attached to it. By having a secure anchor ready to accept the new crown, the process of replacing a crown becomes much easier and can be achieved with less discomfort, less time and less expense.
When something attached to an implant is replaced, it also allows save you time because the dentist is only working with the implant anchor point and doesn’t have to work with any other teeth to fix an issue.
