SMILE INSTITUTE, FLORIDA
Dental implants replace missing teeth to complete your smile but also provide a number of additional benefits
There are several reasons why someone might consider dental implant treatment in the US. Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, offering numerous benefits such as permanent tooth replacement, improved aesthetics, enhanced chewing and speaking, and comfort and stability.
Dental implants contribute to better overall oral health by replacing missing teeth and supporting the surrounding structures. They help to distribute biting forces evenly, reducing the risk of issues like uneven wear on natural teeth.
DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT AND RESTORATION
When planning your treatment, Dr. Soto will use 3-D technology to determine the ideal location to place your dental implant. This state-of-the-art technology allows us to identify areas of good bone density and avoid biological landmarks, such as your sinuses. By using 3-D technology, we can place your dental implant in the location that gives you the best long-term results.
Dental implants consist of a titanium screw that integrates naturally with your bone during the healing process. An abutment attaches to your dental implant and provides a base to secure a custom dental crown. Healing takes approximately 4 to 6 months, and sometimes less. At that point, your dental implant is ready for restoration.
IMPLANT-SUPPORTED DENTURES AND BRIDGES
Dr. Molero and Dr. Soto can combine dental implants with other dental treatments such as fixed dental bridges and dentures. Dental implants offer confidence and security by stabilizing your dentistry, making it easier to eat, laugh, and enjoy life without worry.
We can secure your dentures with dental implants, making it possible to “lock in” your dentures for a better fit. You will no longer need to worry about your dentures shifting and causing embarrassment or discomfort.
Before and after dental implant treatment
I still can’t stop thinking about how great they all are! Their calmness and confidence through every step is amazing. Even when things get complex, they power through like rock stars. Dr. Karla Soto is 100% incredible! Never made me feel nervous. Her hands move like magic.
EXPERTISE AND PRECISION IN DENTAL IMPLANT TREATMENT
Dr. Soto is educated and experienced in implant placement. She is a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), a leading academic organization that focuses on implant dentistry and offers educational support to dentists around the world. We also have our own in-house periodontist at Smile Institute, who is experienced in performing implant procedures as well as bone and gum grafts.
AESTHETIC DENTAL IMPLANT CROWNS
Because your dental implant crown is the part of your implant that will be visible when you smile, we custom design each dental crown to complement the appearance of your smile. Dr. Soto will carefully select the shade, shape, and size of your implant for the greatest aesthetics and function.
Dr. Soto will place your dental implant, making any final adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit and proper chewing occlusion (bite).
