Dental Implants 101
If you are missing one or more teeth and looking for a tooth replacement that is the next best thing to healthy, natural looking teeth, dental implants may be the right choice for you. They are safe, effective and have been in use for over thirty years.
A dental implant is a titanium post surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them. Healthy gums and adequate bone must be in place in order to be considered for a dental implant. It is also advised that a patient be 17 years or older to ensure implants last. Once implanted, it is important to maintain meticulous dental hygiene and regular dental checkups to ensure long-term results.

Do you have a missing tooth that you’ve avoided replacing? You’re not alone. We see countless patients who choose not to replace missing teeth, but even a single lost tooth impacts your oral health. One missing tooth means surrounding teeth receive greater impact while chewing, putting them at greater risk for damage. A single lost tooth will allow surrounding teeth to move to fill in the gap. Your first lost tooth will likely not be your last as jawbone and gum tissue are lost without the necessary stimulation from the tooth root. The only tooth replacement prosthetic that addresses all of these concerns is dental implant

See that gaping hole in your smile? Well, everyone else can see it, too. But that’s not the only reason to have a tooth replacement. Just one missing tooth can lead to other oral health issues such as tooth decay, periodontal disease and more missing teeth. Tooth loss may also make it difficult to speak clearly and enjoy a variety of foods. Perhaps the best tooth replacement option is a dental implant. Unlike others—a partial, full dentures, or crown and bridge—that merely rest on top of your gums, dental implants integrate with the underlying bone to provide a stable base for your new tooth. Dr. Kodish and his team would be delighted to restore your complete smile with dental implants in Forth Lauderdale.

If you are living with missing teeth, the gaps in your smile cause a large impact on your quality of life. Not only do you lose confidence, but your oral health decreases as well. When even one tooth is lost, you lose proper oral functions and bone density. As you lose bone density, your remaining natural teeth will begin to shift and eventually fall out. As a result, you also become more prone to gum disease and tooth decay. The negative implications from tooth loss make everyday tasks like eating and speaking more challenging. Over time, your quality of life will significantly decrease. Thankfully, you can restore your smile and enjoyment for life with your dentist in Fort Lauderdale for dental implants.

Dental implants are an increasingly common way to restore missing teeth as they are a permanent resolution to fill the space. With more than 30 million Americans missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws, implant placement has increased annually by 500,000. While implants are very beneficial and offer numerous benefits when compared to dentures, many run into a certain challenge—finding placement and restoration under one roof. Generally, a dentist will refer a patient to a periodontist and oral surgeon, which not only adds inconvenience and a longer process, but it also drives up the cost. Now, you don’t have to deal with the headache and hassle because Dr. Kodish from the Kodish Group offers placement and restoration under one roof.
