A Permanent Solution For Tooth Loss
Consider this: dental implants are placed once and will last the rest of your lifetime.
Plus, they introduce no significant threat of infection, and require no more maintenance than your natural teeth.
Dental implants from our office also give you back your full biting power (more or less) and look 100% natural in your mouth. No one will ever know the difference, including you.
Dental Implants Explained
Unlike the false teeth of earlier eras of dentistry, modern dental implants replace a missing tooth, or multiple teeth, permanently, in a way that looks and feels totally normal.
Dental implants are actually made up of three key components: the anchor, the abutment, and the crown.
The anchor is the “root” of the dental implant. It is a titanium post that is usually threaded like a screw or bolt. This is the part that fuses with your jawbone for a solid base.
The abutment is the piece that holds the whole implant together, linking the anchor to the crown.
The crown the visible part of the implant that serves as your artificial tooth.
Here’s how it happens: at Jeffrey A. Spilman DDS, we work hand in hand with an awesome implant specialist, who is right up the street from our own St. Petersburg, FL dentist’s office.
Our specialist will surgically insert your implant in one easy procedure.
Once your gums have healed from the initial implant surgery, usually after a few months have gone by, a permanent crown will then be installed over the implant.
Will Dental Implants Work For You?
We hope so! But your consultation with Dr. Spilman will help us determine the best course of action for you. If you are interested in receiving dental implants, you must be an adult in good overall health, able to tolerate anesthesia, and currently a non-smoker.
