If you have missing teeth, it is probably a safe bet that you have been thinking about how you can get a better smile. Many people want to replace missing teeth but don’t know what would be the best way to do it. Today, many of our patients are choosing to get dental implants in Fort Myers as a great way to have missing teeth restored.
Dental implants are the most effective way to replace missing teeth today. The dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from the missing permanent teeth; dental implants look, feel and function just like permanent teeth. So if you are ready to get a better smile and have your missing teeth replaced, come to us for dental implants in Fort Myers. At our practice, McGregor Dental at McGregor Point, we have been able to provide many patients with this great way to once again have their beautiful smiles restored. Dental implants are made up of two portions; the lower titanium root and the upper ceramic tooth portion. Our dentist, Dr. William J. Shorack will first evaluate the patient to make sure that they do not have any health problems that will interfere with recovery from the implant surgery, and that the jawbone is healthy enough to securely hold the new implant.
Once the patient is cleared for surgery, he or she will be able to receive dental implants in Fort Myers. Dr. Shorack will first surgically implant the dental implant into the jawbone. The jawbone will take several months to completely heal and to have the titanium implant totally fuse to it. One this occurs, our dentist will be able to permanently attach the ceramic crown. At this point the dental implant is complete. You will feel just like you have a new permanent tooth. You will be able to eat anything you want and your speech will not be negatively affected. The porcelain portion will be color matched to your adjacent teeth so no one will be able to determine that you have a dental implant in place of a regular tooth. If you are tired about not being able to smile for fear of embarrassment, and not being able to eat your favorite foods, contact us at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point for an appointment to see if dental implants are a good way for you to replace your missing teeth.
