Dental Implants Get Replacement Teeth That Stay Put

Chew & Smile Easily Again With Dental Implants in Tampa

Missing teeth affect your life in so many ways. You won’t smile if you aren’t comfortable with how you look. Difficulty chewing can limit you to bland, soft foods when dining out with friends. You may even be self-conscious about your speech. Don’t let your social life suffer! With dental implants in Tampa, you will:

  • Complete Your Smile – Implants can replace any number of teeth, even all of them.
  • Never Need Denture Adhesive – Unlike conventional dentures, replacement teeth attached to implants stay securely in place. You can throw away your denture adhesive and forget about embarrassing slippage.
  • Eat Anything You Want – Implants give you a stronger bite than you can achieve with conventional dentures.
  • Speak Without Slurring – Replacement teeth that slip and shift can affect your speech. Implants make it easy for others to understand what you say.
  • Enjoy a Younger-Looking Face – Without stimulation from tooth roots, your jawbone atrophies over time, giving your face a sunken look. Implants keep the bone healthy and strong, so you’ll look younger.

Rely on Our Implant Dentist’s Expertise for Excellent Results

Some dentists only place implants, while others only restore them with teeth replacements. Dr. Doering does both, so you can have your entire implant procedure done at our office. This saves you time, hassle, and expense!

Using advanced technology like digital X-rays, he places implants in your jaw. If you’re nervous about the procedure, you can receive oral sedation. Once implants become completely integrated with your jaw, a process that usually takes just a few months, you’re ready to receive your replacement teeth.

You can choose:

  • An Implant With a Crown – Dr. Doering places a single dental implant. Once healed, he’ll attach a durable dental crown to it.
  • An Implant-Supported Bridge – Fill smile gaps left by several missing teeth with a bridge attached to two or more implants. Unlike a conventional bridge, Dr. Doering won’t have to touch any healthy teeth for your treatment.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – A system of snaps and balls keeps your dentures firmly in place.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – These dentures, which are attached to a bar on top of your implants, perform most like natural teeth by transferring chewing force to your jaw.
  • All-on-X Dental Implants – Restore an entire arch of teeth in one process with All-on-X. We’ll place a limited number of implants around your jaw and connect the full arch of teeth in one simple procedure giving you back the full function and look of a natural smile.

Strengthen Your Jaw for Teeth Implants

If you’ve lost bone density in your jaw, you may need oral surgery to strengthen it before dental implant treatment. Dr. Doering performs many surgical procedures in our office, including:

  • Bone Grafts – During this simple treatment, Dr. Doering places material that strengthens your jaw by encouraging new bone growth.
  • Sinus Lifts – This procedure creates added height in your upper jaw to make more room for implants.
  • Ridge Augmentation – An augmentation is a more involved reconstruction of your jawline than a bone graft.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

What is the dental implant procedure?

On the day of your implant treatment, we’ll numb the area we’re working on and place one or more dental implants where your teeth are missing, according to your treatment plan. Most implant procedures require a recovery process before teeth can be attached to the implants. Many patients require no more than local anesthesia, though you can also choose to receive oral sedation.

Are dental implants covered by insurance?

Your dental insurance plan might cover some part of the expense of your dental implants and restorations. It is advised that you contact your provider so you know exactly what it is spending and what your part will be. To make your treatment more affordable, we offer third-party financing through CareCredit.

When should I get dental implants?

If you are missing any number of teeth, you owe it to yourself to consider getting implants. They are designed to function as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. Implants make crowns, bridges, and dentures more secure. They prevent bone loss by stimulating your jaw, and they restore your biting power so you can eat anything you want.

Are dental implants worth it?

Although they are more expensive than conventional dentures, dental implants are a worthy investment in your oral and overall health and your quality of life moving forward. That’s because they’re a potentially lifelong solution that preserves the structural foundation of your mouth, prevents future tooth loss, allows you to eat what you love, and helps you enjoy better nutrition, digestion, and health in the long term.
