What your dentist in Orange City, FL wants you to know

You may know someone who has dental implants. You really like the way they look, but you might be worried about the procedure itself. dental implantsYou may be wondering if dental implants hurt. The truth is placing a dental implant has become a state-of-the-art procedure that is easily tolerated by just about everyone. Dr. Andrew Yoon at Cape Vista Dental in Orange City, FL wants to help you discover just how easy and comfortable dental implants can be.

Dental implants are placed through a simple in-office procedure, usually requiring only local anesthetic, however additional methods of anesthesia are available if you need them. The implant itself looks like a screw, and is made of titanium, a strong material that is gentle to soft tissue and bone; your body won’t reject it.

During the healing period, your body will produce more bone to fuse with the dental implant and lock it in place. After your implant is secure and fully healed, Dr. Yoon will place a beautiful, natural-looking crown on top of the implant. Before you know it, you will have a beautiful new smile! Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. They can also be used to support dental appliances like dentures.

Dental implants are the revolutionary new solution to tooth replacement. Before dental implants, your choices weren’t wonderful. You could choose from living with a large space in your smile, to having a removable partial or denture which can move around when you eat, to having a dental bridge which involves cutting into healthy adjacent teeth.

Now, thanks to dental implants, you can choose a natural-looking, beautiful, conservative method of tooth replacement. Dental implants also help to preserve your bone structure and help you keep the youthful contours of your face. That’s because dental implants actually help to create more bone. Dental appliances like dentures or partials can diminish bone over time, causing your face to sag and look older.

Don’t allow fear of discomfort to keep you from getting the smile you deserve. The dental implant procedure is well tolerated by just about everyone, and Dr. Yoon is committed to providing you with the best care possible before, during and after your dental implant treatment.
