Change Your Smile, Change Your Life
Ready to replace your missing teeth and find confidence in your smile again? At our dental practice in Boynton Beach, Dr. Landers offers dental implants, the number one restorative solution for patients living with missing teeth. With implants, Dr. Landers is able to restore patients’ smiles, giving them full functionality and a natural appearance.
Dental implants are a permanent, natural-looking restorative solution for missing teeth. Implants replace missing teeth from root to crown, integrating with your jawbone for unmatched stability and strength. Best of all, implants can be a lifelong solution if properly cared for.
Explore our guide below to find out more about dental implants and the benefits they could bring you.
Dental Implant Benefits
When you choose dental implants as your tooth replacement, you’ll receive a wide variety of benefits that other solutions can’t match, such as:
- Natural look and function
- Secured to your jaw
- Easy to maintain
- Resistant to decay
- Stimulates healthy jawbone growth
- Can last up to a lifetime
The Dental Implant Process
Before deciding if dental implants are the best course of action for your dental needs, you’ll undergo a preliminary dental and radiographic examination, as well as discussing your health history. During these consultation visits with Dr. Landers, we’ll work with you to determine your specific needs to help make your procedure a success.
Once we’ve customized your treatment plan, you’ll return to our Boynton Beach office for your implant placement procedure. Your dental implants will be placed directly into your jawbone. From there, you’ll go through a three to six-month recovery period while they naturally integrate with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration. While you heal, our dentists will customize your final restoration piece.
Once you’ve fully healed, you’ll come back to see Dr. Landers for your customized restoration. Depending on your needs, this may be a porcelain crown, a fixed dental bridge, or full-arch dentures. After your customized restoration is placed, you’ll leave our office with a beautiful, healthy smile.
Are You a Candidate?
If you’re looking for a tooth replacement option that allows you to eat with no restrictions, speak freely, and smile with confidence, dental implants may be the perfect solution for you. Unlike dentures, implants don’t slide or slip around your mouth and they can be cleaned just like your natural teeth. Implants also stimulate healthy jawbone growth to prevent deterioration and preserve your facial appearance.
Most patients find they’re an ideal candidate for dental implants. However, patients must have adequate jawbone density and healthy gums to receive successful treatment. Fortunately, we offer supplemental procedures that will prepare your mouth for implants.
Frequently Asked Questions
The first week or two following your procedure is crucial to the success of your dental implants. Make sure to follow any instructions given to you by Dr. Landers carefully during this period. These instructions include limiting your diet to soft foods, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and rinsing your mouth with warm salt water after meals.
Once you’ve healed, you’ll care for the dental implants just like natural teeth. No special tools or products are necessary to keep them clean. Just make sure to brush and floss daily, in addition to visiting our Boynton Beach practice for dental checkups twice a year. Dr. Landers recommends using a soft-bristled toothbrush and avoiding any brands of toothpaste that contain abrasive ingredients.
Dental implants have a success rate of 98 percent. As long as your surgery is performed by an experienced and qualified dentist, there’s no reason to worry. In fact, dental implants are the only restoration that stimulates your jawbone and prevents teeth from shifting, making them the safest restoration option in the long run.
