Improve Your Diet with Dental Implant Restorations
If you have missing teeth, smiling is a challenge. Chewing foods may be uncomfortable, so you may opt for softer foods that don't irritate your mouth, but may not be the healthiest choice.
Dr. Jason Olvera works closely with other specialists in the area to coordinate the placement of your implant. He will then add a dental implant restoration here at our St. Petersburg, FL dental office.
Imagine being able to eat the foods you want, enjoy a crunchy salad for the first time in years, or not have to think about what you can and cannot order when you dine out with friends or family.
How Dental Implants Work
Dental implants are thin posts made from durable titanium. These posts are surgically implanted in your jaw and bond with the bone over several months. When this process is complete, Dr. Olvera places an abutment and a restoration tooth.
Because he works with a team of local specialists and meticulously plans your dental implant placement and restoration, you can be confident that you’re receiving excellent care from top experts.
Taking Care of Your Dental Implant
Dental implants are the gold standard for tooth replacement. They are so similar to natural teeth that they don't require any special maintenance. Brush and floss as you would with natural teeth.
Visit our dental office regularly so we can check on your restoration and provide regular oral exams. You’ll also want to stay current with twice-yearly dental cleanings.
While dental implants are built to last, failure to care for them properly can compromise your implants. Gum infections or periodontal disease can still occur and put your implant at risk. But good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will extend the lifespan of your implant.
