Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 13, 2014
Patients searching for periodontal care and dental implants in Miami, FL can now receive treatment for their missing teeth from the doctors at South Florida Periodontics & Dental Implants, as they are currently accepting new patients. Dr. Scott B. Ross and Dr. Bradley A. Ross are skilled periodontists with the desire and ability to help change patients’ lives and restore their positive self-image through the use of dental implants. Patients routinely undergo the procedure and can benefit from their implants for decades with little to no complications.
Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option. Unlike dentures, there is no slipping or clicking while speaking and eating, and the bone loss that occurs in the jaw when teeth are missing can be prevented with the use of implants. This is because the implant works just like natural teeth, stimulating the jaw bone to stay strong. As long as that stimulation occurs, bone loss is not likely to be a problem. Dentures and bridges do not offer the same benefits, so bone loss can become a severe problem. Changes in face shape may begin to become noticeable as the jaw deteriorates.
Implants work well for patients who need to replace missing teeth because of their simple design and long life. An implant replacement tooth is made of three separate parts: the crown, the abutment and the implant. The crown is the ceramic piece that is structurally similar to the visible part of natural teeth. The abutment piece connects the crown to the implant anchored in the jawbone. The implant, which is made of surgical titanium, mimics the roots of natural teeth and becomes fully integrated in the jaw bone through a process known as osseointegration. This bond is so strong it can last a lifetime.
Dental implants can benefit many Miami, FL patients who need to replace missing teeth. Patients who need periodontal care or want to find out more about dental implants can visit the doctors’ website for more information or call the office for a consultation.
