Dental Implants in Fort Myers & Naples, FL

Millions of Americans are missing one or more teeth, many of them older adults. But since the 1980s, when contemporary implant dentistry began to be offered, dentists have had a way to help patients enjoy a full, healthy smile again. Dental implants use titanium posts as a substitute for individual tooth roots, and they’re compatible with crowns, bridges, partials, and full dentures. When a full implant procedure is complete, patients are able to enjoy a revitalized smile that looks, feels, and functions like a natural smile.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have solved many problems associated with removable partial or full dentures. If you have dentures, or you have lost a tooth, implants may be right for you. Partial or full dentures can become loose or fit poorly over time. They may also cause discomfort or function inadequately. If you’re missing one or more teeth and want to restore your ability to eat with comfort and confidence, consider dental implants from Dr. Hoop.

Research indicates that today’s implant restorations have a success rate of better than 90%. What’s more, most people with missing teeth are candidates for dental implants, with results that can have many times the chewing force compared to full dentures. Plus, with proper care at home and regular dental visits, they have even been known to last as long as 20 to 25 years.

The Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implants are placed and restored in three stages. In the first, an incision is made through the gums to expose the area where an implant is being placed. The implant bodies are inserted into the bone, and then the gum tissue is closed and sutured. The submerged implants are allowed to heal for a period of three to nine months. Then, after the appropriate healing period, the top of each implant is exposed. A post is attached to each one that extends through the gum tissue. These posts will secure the replacement teeth to the implants. In the final stage, the selected form of replacement teeth are fabricated and attached to the posts and implants.
