Central Florida Periodontics offers dental implants in Orlando to people young and old looking for a long-term solution to fill in their smile. With multiple types of implants offered, Central Florida Periodontics can handle any of your dental implant needs.
What Are Dental Implants?
Central Florida Periodontics offers a variety of dental implants in Orlando. The most common type of dental implant is the endosteal implant. These implants are surgically placed in the jaw to hold the prosthetic.
Subperiosteal implants involve a metal framework being placed under the gum tissue and over the jawbone with small protrusions for the prosthetic teeth to attach to. These implants are designed to work the same way as endosteal implants and are best for patients that can’t wear conventional dentures. Many oral care professionals agree that dental implants are a good decision for you and your long-term oral health.
Am I Qualified to Get Dental Implants in Orlando?
We’ll evaluate your oral health to determine if you would be a good candidate to get dental implants in Orlando at Central Florida Periodontics. To determine if you are qualified for the procedure, you will go through a set of tests and examinations including a dental and radiologic exam. The biggest factors are the health of your gums and jaw. The ideal candidate will have gums free of periodontal disease and enough bone in your jaw to support the implants.
What Is the Process?
The process of implantation and receiving your prosthetics usually takes between six-eight months and can include two surgeries. As you heal, you will wear dentures and eat a soft-food diet to help encourage the healing process and not do any damage to the sensitive parts of your mouth.
Once the implants are firmly in the jawbone, and have healed, we will begin the process of creating your new prosthetic teeth for attachment. Once everything is ready, we will attach the tooth to your implant and have you smiling wide and with confidence. Dental implants can be life-changing, and Central Florida Periodontics is providing dental implants in Orlando to people young and old.
