More Reasons to Choose Dental Implants
Improve Your Oral Health
A missing tooth can disrupt the positions of adjacent teeth, upsetting your alignment, destabilizing your bite, and increasing your risk of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder. Implants can prevent these painful side effects.
Maintain a Youthful Appearance
Losing teeth can also permanently change your facial appearance. When tooth roots are no longer present, the jawbone begins to shrink, leading to hollowed cheeks, sunken lips, and wrinkles around the mouth. Because dental implants replace tooth roots, you will be able to retain your bone structure and a more youthful facial appearance.
Eat a Better Diet
Even the loss of one tooth can alter the way you bite and chew your food, potentially leading to changes in your diet. Because implants are fixed in the jawbone, you will be able to confidently chew all the fibrous, nutritious foods that pose a challenge with traditional dentures.
Experience Unbeatable Convenience
Traditional dentures and bridges are removable and require additional daily maintenance. With implants, you do not have to worry about cleaning your restorations after meals, soaking them overnight, or using messy dental adhesives. You simply care for implants like you would your natural teeth.

Dental Implant Timeline
Dental implants require a few different procedures over the course of several months. While the timeline may seem long compared to other restorative options, the life-long benefits are well worth the wait. Here is what you can expect during treatment at our Westchase and Carrollwood, FL, offices...

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants
The Number of Implants
The cost of your treatment will depend heavily on the extent of your tooth loss. Replacing one missing tooth with a single implant and crown will cost much less than replacing all of your teeth with a full set of implant-supported dentures.
Some patients may require bone grafting to restore the density of the jaw prior to implant treatment. In other cases, sinus augmentation surgery may be needed before a patient can be eligible for dental implants. Preparatory work will increase the total cost of treatment.
Sedation is recommended for implant procedures to make the visit easy and comfortable. The level of sedation or anesthesia you desire for your procedure will affect the overall cost of treatment. We offer all forms of sedation dentistry, including nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and intravenous (IV) sedation.
Invest in Yourself with Dental Implants
Not only are dental implants the most comfortable and natural-feeling form of tooth replacement, but they are also the most permanent. In most cases, implants last a lifetime, and the implant-supported prosthetics are good for well over a decade. Therefore, while dental implants cost more up-front than traditional dentures, the longevity of implants can make them the smarter financial investment.
But more importantly, implants are truly life-changing, simplifying your daily routine, increasing your self-confidence, and promoting a more enjoyable quality of life. Consider implants not only an investment in your oral health, but also an investment in yourself.
