Winter Haven, FL (PRWEB) January 15, 2016
Individuals who need dental implants in Winter Haven, FL, are now invited to receive the procedure at Dr. Frederick Thurston’s practice located in Auburndale, FL. Implants are the treatment of choice for many individuals who are looking for more than just a short-term solution for missing teeth. Dr. Thurston recommends dental implants for their strength, effectiveness and comfort.
Dr. Thurston is experienced in the placement of dental implants, and now invites residents from Winter Haven, FL, to receive this effective treatment option to replace their missing teeth. Dental implants are not only safe and efficient, but they are also convenient and comfortable. Patients who receive implants need not worry about removing them each night for cleaning. Instead, implants are intended to be cleaned just like natural teeth. Patients who receive implants should continue to follow a strict dental hygiene regimen in order to keep their implants, gums and surrounding oral tissues in good health.
Not everyone is a good candidate for dental implants, so it is important for patients to receive a thorough consultation from Dr. Thurston before receiving them. If a patient meets the appropriate criteria, such as having sufficient bone mass, they may proceed with treatment. With the help of special tools, Dr. Thurston uncovers the jawbone in the area directly beneath the missing tooth and carefully drills a hole to prepare the way for the implant. After successful placement, the implant is allowed to sit untouched within the jaw bone for a period of time while the treatment site heals. During this healing period, the bone grows around the implant and holds it in place. The final step in the process is to attach a crown to the top of the implant, and allow the area to heal once again.
Dr. Thurston encourages patients who have missing teeth and need dental implants in Winter Haven, FL, to schedule an appointment with his Auburndale practice. Dental implants offer many patients a long-term, reliable solution to their tooth loss problems.
