At McGregor Dental at McGregor Point, we provide patients with the chance to have a full set of teeth again thanks to implant technology. Dental implants in Fort Myers Florida are an easy and revolutionary new way to once again have a permanent tooth in place of a missing tooth. Implants are highly durable titanium posts that are surgically implanted directly into the gum so that an artificial cap can be placed over it. Tooth loss is irreversible, but with implants, patients can once again have a new tooth, allowing them to chew, eat and talk better than they did before the implants.
Dental implants in Fort Myers Florida are quickly done in a gentle procedure at our offices where our dentist surgically places the implant into the jawbone. If there is not enough bone for the implant, we will perform a bone graft for eligible patients. The bone graft takes bone from a donor site and places it onto the jawbone and allows it to fuse in a biocompatible procedure. Once the bone graft is completed, the dental implant can be put in and then given a healing time of 2 to 3 months. During this phase the patient will need to eat strictly soft foods and certain foods so that they can give the implant site time to heal.
After your dental implants in Fort Myers Florida are completed, we may ask you to come in periodically to have the implant site checked and to make sure everything is coming along nicely.
