DENTAL IMPLANTS IN DELRAY BEACH

A dental implant Delray Beach procedure is a restorative treatment aimed at replacing a damaged or missing tooth or multiple teeth.

An implant is a titanium post that gets carefully rooted into your jawbone over the gumline.

This post serves as a solid structure to support a crown or cap that will look and function just like your natural tooth.

The implant gives the crown stability and strength. A dental implant crown can help your teeth stay healthy giving you a strong natural-looking smile.

Dr. Nicholas Goetz, a dental implant dentist in Delray Beach, FL can help you get the care you deserve.

Whether you need to replace a hopeless or a missing tooth with an implant, or just need to replace an old or ill-functioning implant crown, or get implant dentures.

Why Should I Choose an Implant Dentist in Palm Beach County?

Benefits of Dental implants

Natural-looking Smile

Implants provide you with great aesthetics and allow you to smile again with natural looking teeth. 

Comfort

Teeth Implants are much more comfortable than conventional dentures as they are permanently fixed to your jawbone. They feel like natural teeth.

Helps your Bite and Overall Oral Health

If you have an empty space in your mouth, your bite can start to shift. A tooth implant and crown will fill that gap, preventing any movement from adjacent teeth and thus, helping keep your bite stable. 

Strength

The implant provides the new crown a solid and strong base and functions just like a natural tooth.

Durability

Implants are very durable and can last many, many years. With proper care and regular cleanings, implants can last a lifetime.

Functionality

Both the implant and the crown serve as replacements for the root and the tooth. This lends functionality and support to your jawbone. Because implants are fixed restorations, you will be able to chew and bite normally.

Dental Implant Procedure

With a vast training and experience in prosthodontics and periodontics, Dr. Goetz will be able to perform the dental implant Delray Beach procedure in the most effective way.

Since this is a surgical procedure, it requires specific skills and a few office visits.

STEP 1: DIAGNOSIS AND EVALUATION

An initial comprehensive exam is the first step in this procedure. Dr. Goetz will assess your oral condition and evaluate the results of the x-rays to check your bones and roots.

STEP 2: EXTRACTION

If the damaged tooth (or part of it) is still in your mouth, the doctor will need to remove it before starting the implant procedure. In case you don’t have enough bone to hold up the implants, you may need a bone graft treatment first.

STEP 3: SURGICAL IMPLANTATION

The procedure begins when the implant dentist places the titanium post into your jaw. This step requires anesthesia. The dental implant is carefully screwed into the bone.

STEP 4: HEALING AND TEMPORARY CROWN PLACEMENT

As this is a surgical procedure, there will be a healing period  to let the implant and the bone fuse together (osseo-integration). This process typically takes a couple of months ( about 4-5 months for the lower jaw and 6-8 months for the upper jaw)

During this healing period you will get a temporary crown.

STEP 5:  PLACEMENT OF ABUTMENT AND IMPRESSIONS

Once the healing process is completed, the doctor will fix the abutment (the part that screws into the implant and serves as support for the crown) and take molds of your teeth and jawbone. These molds will be used to help create your permanent crown.

STEP 6: PLACEMENT OF FINAL RESTORATION

Finally, you will have your permanent crown fixed onto your dental implant on top of the abutment.

There are many different types of crowns. Porcelain crowns are mostly preferred for their aesthetics and functionality.  Dr. Goetz will guide you on the most recommended and suitable type of crown for you.

Dental Implant Delray Beach FAQ

How Long Will the Implant Post and Crown Last?

As long as you take good care of your teeth and gums, implant crowns can last a lifetime. Regular cleanings and checkups at a dental office are also essential. Avoid biting on hard foods or doing anything that can hurt your implant crown (biting on ice, biting on hard foods, open packages or bottle caps)

How Do I Know I Need a Dental Implant?

When you have a damaged or missing tooth you may get an implant to restore the aesthetics and function of your teeth. You will know if you are a candidate for dental implants after your first comprehensive exam and initial diagnosis. You'd go for implants if you either cannot or do not want to get dentures, bridges or crowns.

Dental Implants: What Are the Downsides?

Dental implant Delray Beach requires a surgical procedure, which can sometimes cause discomfort, inflammation, or pain. In about 5% of the cases, dental implants can fail and have to be placed again. Implants require a healing period, which means the procedure can take months for completion. Finally, it’s a complex procedure that requires a lot of time and money.

Are Dental Implants Covered By Dental Insurance?

In some cases a dental implant crown may enjoy some kind of coverage. The cost of implant crowns will vary according to each particular case. Our staff will guide you on the cost of your treatment plan and the available ways of paying for treatment.
