Dental Implants Options At Smiles Of Punta Gorda
- Fixed Full-Arch Teeth – Depending on the condition of your mouth, we can place either four or six dental implants to support full arches of new, fixed teeth on your upper or lower jaw.
- Mini Dental Implant – If your jawbone is too weak to support regular dental implant, we can still replace your teeth using these smaller versions. We often use these to secure dentures.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – We can create custom, tooth-colored dentures that attach to a bar on your dental implants.
- Single Tooth Implants – We can also replace a single tooth with a dental implant, which can still make a dramatic improvement in how you speak, eat, and smile.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots that Dr. Martin places into your jawbone. Once they’re in place, your replacement tooth or teeth will be customized to naturally match any existing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, replacement teeth anchored to implants will never slip out of place.
We’ll start by taking digital X-rays of your mouth to make sure you’re a good candidate for implants. A digital impression will then be made of your mouth so we can create the most effective, natural-feeling replacement teeth.
Relieving Your Anxiety So You Can Benefit From Dental Implants
We understand that receiving implants may seem like an intimidating commitment. However, you can rest assured that you’ll always experience the highest levels of care and comfort while in our office.
We will apply local anesthesia to numb your mouth before placing your implants. We also offer oral sedation to help calm your nerves and minimize pain. While we take care of your smile, you can choose to relax with music using our headphones.
