Despite all of the recent advancements in dental technology, a surprisingly large number of Americans are still living with some form of dental implantstooth loss. The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that close to half of the adults in the United States are missing at least one tooth, with millions more missing all of their teeth. Although tooth loss becomes more of a concern with age, anyone can lose a tooth at any time, either from an oral health problem like tooth decay and gum disease, or from an accident or sports injury. Dr. Raymond Della Porta, a dentist in Vero Beach, FL, recommends dental implants for healthy adults missing anything from a single tooth to most or all of their natural teeth.

A New and Improved Smile with Dental Implants in Vero Beach, FL

Most people are familiar with traditional dental restoration treatments like crowns, bridgework, and dentures, all of which replace the visible, bottom half of a missing tooth (also known as the crown). Implants replace the root of the tooth, which helps to securely anchor the restoration in place and help to preserve healthy bone tissue in the gums.

First, a biocompatible screw-shaped implant is surgically placed in the gums, where it will eventually fuse with the existing bone tissue. Once healed, the cosmetic crown is attached. Implants are also unique in that they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or to secure an entire set of dentures with just a few implants.

In order to be a candidate for dental implants, you must be an adult in good health. You must also have enough bone density in the area where the implant will be placed. Implants require rigorous oral hygiene and regular follow up care with the dentist but have a very high success rate for healthy patients.

Find out how these simple restorations could revive your smile.dental crowns

Has our Vero Beach, FL, dentist, Dr. Raymond Della Porta, II recommended that you get a dental crown? You probably already know a little something about dental crowns, even if you’ve never gotten one before. They are one of the most commonly used dental restorations, after all, and there is a reason why.

Why do I need a dental crown?

There are many scenarios in which our Vero Beach general dentist will tell you that the best option is a dental crown. As you will come to find out, it’s a pretty versatile restoration. You may need to consider a crown if:

  • You have a broken, fractured or cracked tooth
  • You have a tooth that has become weaker because of decay
  • You have an infected dental pulp and need root canal treatment
  • A large dental filling has failed to properly support a damaged tooth
  • You have a discolored, misshapen or aesthetically unpleasing tooth
  • You need to support a fixed dental bridge
  • You are getting a dental implant to replace one more missing teeth

Dental crowns can do everything from altering the shape and appearance of a tooth to protecting if from irreparable damage and restoring function and strength.

What types of crowns can I get in Vero Beach?

It’s true that dental crowns can be fashioned from different materials. As you can imagine, the most popular crowns are made from tooth-colored materials (e.g. porcelain) because the material can be matched to the shade of your teeth so that no one will be able to tell that you have a crown. Dental crowns can also be made from ceramic or porcelain-fused-to-metal.

Are you ready to say goodbye to misshapen or damaged teeth and feel confident in your smile once more? If so, then it’s time you called our Vero Beach, FL dental office to find out the many ways we can help. Restorative dentistry can give you back the smile you once had.

First impressions are an important part of many milestones in life, from meeting your spouse to landing that job you have always wanted. dental implantsClouding your first impressions with teeth that are embarrassing to you and hiding a smile can be avoided. You can make a great first impression with your smile by seeking the advice of Dr. Raymond Della Porta at Vero Beach, FL.

How Dental Implants Can Help Your Smile

Losing your teeth is a traumatic event, whether it is due to an accident or injury or because of poor dental health. Dental implants are a great way to get the smile you have always wanted. The implants work far better for many people when compared to dentures because they stay in place. These are also a good idea if you have missing individual teeth.

The gums are prepared for the implants by removing any teeth that might be in the way or need to be replaced.The gums are often allowed to heal before the implants are put in place. An imitation root, much like a screw, is put into place in the gums. Once the gums are healed around the root the new teeth are placed. These teeth have been made to fit in the space and are made to look much like your natural teeth. A few weeks after the Vero Beach expert places the rest of the dental implant, you will be able to rely on them to be as strong as natural teeth.
