Dental Implants Restore a Strong, Beautiful Smile

Decayed and missing teeth can make your smile unsightly—and that’s just the obvious problem. Left in your mouth, bad teeth and missing teeth can lead to further complications that make more costly and complex treatments necessary. While there are a few ways to remedy these flaws in your smile in terms of durability and natural-looking, long-lasting results, it’s hard to beat a dental implant. As a multi-specialty dental practice, we have extensive training in a variety of dental treatments, including implants, related procedures, and more. To help you better understand the advantages of this dental innovation and what Paradise Dental Associates can offer you, we’ve put together this list of common questions. Please review it and reach out to us if you have any further questions! We’ll be happy to answer them if you’d like to schedule a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants are comprised of three components: a screw-like titanium post that’s placed in the jaw and functions as a tooth root; a sturdy, natural-looking crown that replaces gaps in the smile and reliably performs all the same functions as natural teeth; and an abutment, which links the other two parts together. The titanium post fuses with the jawbone after a few months and becomes a permanent part of the mouth. Dental implants look and feel just like real teeth, and can last much longer.

Our advanced technology enables us to precisely place your dental implants for a comfortable fit and flawless esthetics. What’s more, this technology allows us to extensively pre-plan your procedure, which means we can finish it more quickly and the possibility of complications is drastically reduced.
