Naples Dental Implants
Are you searching for a dental implant dentist in Naples? Look no further than The Modern Dentist and our dental implant dentists. A dental implant is a biocompatible, man-made substitute to replace missing tooth roots; it is usually made of a space-age alloy of titanium. Dental Implants come in various shapes and sizes to fit different situations. Most are cylinders placed into bone and allowed to heal undisturbed while bone heals around them, locking them in like an anchor. After a few months, the dental implants are used as a foundation for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, improve appearance, end embarrassment and give real self-confidence to patients who need them. They are a real breakthrough!
While there are several types of dental implants available, the most widely accepted and successful is the osseointegrated implant, since titanium can be successfully fused into bone. This forms a structural and functional connection between the living bone and the implant. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge, or implant supported denture.
Individuals who are missing one or more teeth looking for a permanent replacement solution may opt to use an implant crown. An implant crown is a composite reproduction of the lost tooth that is placed over a dental implant or post. The implant crown replicates the original tooth in shape, size, strength and appearance. When the crown adheres in place, it will fully encase the entire visible portion of the dental implant. If you are considering a dental implant, The Modern Dentist can help you decide whether or not you need an implant crown.
