A tooth for a tooth takes on a new meaning when you’re talking about a dental implant. If you are missing one or more teeth, then Dr. Jose Bushdid and his team in Coral Gables, FL, can restore your smile with lifelike dental implants. Depending on how many teeth you are missing and the location of those teeth, there are a few different types of dental implants. Dr. Bushdid will be able to advise you on which is best for you.
First, let’s answer a question: what is a dental implant? An implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is surgically set in your jawbone. Sufficient bone density is required for the post to provide a secure foundation for your eventual tooth restoration; Dr. Bushdid uses 3D cone beam technology to make certain you have enough bone volume. Then, the implant is set and given time to integrate with surrounding bone tissue.

For many patients, a dental implant may be the ideal solution for a single tooth replacement. Once implanted, this new root not only serves as the foundation for a natural tooth restoration—which will likely be a beautiful porcelain crown—but also encourages your body to generate healthy new bone tissue in your jaw. Without a tooth root, your jawbone may begin to shrink and thereby change the appearance of your face, making you look older.
If you’ve lost several teeth, then hybrid dentures may be best for your circumstance. These dentures combine the stability of dental implants with the aesthetically pleasing appearance of dentures. Dr. Bushdid strategically places four or more dental implants along your upper or lower jaw. After you’ve healed, these implants are outfitted with a casing that fits into a metal attachment on the underside of your dentures. The connection is similar to a ball and socket. Once secured, you’ll never need to worry about dentures that slip or click.
Alternatively, there are also All-on-4 Implant Dentures. Like hybrid dentures, these are set on four implants with one important difference: the entire process of extracting teeth, placing implants and securing dentures can be completed in just one day! You’ll leave Bushdid Smiles with a new smile and a new outlook.
