Losing teeth can be difficult to deal with, but we here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point do all that we can to make sure that your smile is restored and that you are happy with your new smile. When replacing teeth, there are several methods you can consider, and dental implants in Fort Myers are certainly an option here at our offices. Serving the Fort Myers and Sanibel areas, and their surrounding communities, for over twenty years, our dentist Dr. William J. Shorack can tell you more about how implants work and whether they are the right option for you.
When losing teeth, it can be easy to focus on the immediate changes like how it will affect the way you eat and speak on a regular basis, as well as how it will change your appearance. But living with missing teeth is detrimental to your dental health most of all, so even when you are at the stage where the loss of teeth is imminent, you should be discussing dental prostheses with your dentist beforehand. When replacing lost teeth, there are several options. Bridges and dentures are common, and neither one requires any surgery to set up. Bridges are good for people who have lost few teeth, and dentures can be used to replace sections or entire rows of teeth. In both cases, these prostheses are easily removable when needed or desired, but they do not always provide the same reliability as implants do. Here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point, Dr. Shorack can go through the motions, tell you about the procedure, as well as tell you how implants may be better for you. Dental implants in Fort Myers are individually attached to the jaw bone and each tooth is designed to look and function as naturally as possible.
Whether you happen to be a candidate for dental implants in Fort Myers or are simply interested in the procedure, Dr. Shorack would be more than happy to walk you through the step-by-step process as well as provide you with the preliminary exam you’ll need right here at McGregor Dental at McGregor Point.

Dental implants are so popular today because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. In order to get dental implants, a patient needs to be examined to make sure that they are good candidates for the procedure. It is important that the patient’s jawbone is healthy and strong enough to hold the dental implants. If it is determined that you definitely want dental to replace your missing teeth, we will be able to refer you for an implant consultation and coordinate all efforts between the implant surgeon and the lab.
Once your Cypress Lake implants have fully fused to your jawbone, and your jawbone is fully healed, our dentist will be able to provide you with the top portion of the implant – the porcelain crown. The porcelain crown is now permanently attached to the implant, and completes the entire implant. At this point your new dental implant is fully functional and you are able to enjoy all the benefits it has to offer. With your new implant you will not only look great, but you will also be able to eat just about anything you desire. Dental implants are not only helpful in allowing a patient to regain their beautiful smile, but they are also very effective in helping the patient’s facial contours stay intact. This is because the dental implant root portion will keep the jawbone from deteriorating or weakening. Other solutions that we provide for missing teeth are fixed and removable bridges, and dentures.
