Dr. Collins and Dr. Montz take pride in providing patients with a comprehensive menu of dental services, including leading-edge options like dental implants that aren’t available in just any general practice. Dental implants are the ideal replacement for missing teeth because they mimic nature to a seamless degree, restoring your natural dental structure and preserving your oral health with long-term success. If you’re missing one or more teeth, contact Collins & Montz Dentistry in Melbourne Beach, FL to schedule your first consultation. Our team looks forward to welcoming you!
Your tooth has two equally important components – the white crown that shows when you smile, and the root safely hidden beneath the jawbone. While most tooth replacement options only bother with the first part of that equation, dental implants actually consist of a small titanium post that’s inserted into the jawbone, effectively replacing the tooth root in order to preserve jawbone health and provide a sturdy foundation for the eventual replacement crown. This prevents bone deterioration, bolsters your oral health, and creates a seamlessly lifelike result that’s virtually indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
There are multiple steps to the dental implant process, including the following:
In addition to the traditional implant process, patients who are suffering from the loss of teeth along their full bottom arch, top arch, or all through their mouth can find fast relief with the All-On-4 procedure. Just like the name implies, All-On-4 will consist of four implants that are strategically placed within the jawbone so as to prevent the need for time-consuming grafts. Then, a customized prosthetic is anchored in place immediately following the implant placement – no waiting required! After your gums have had time to properly heal, patients will return to our Melbourne Beach location so that we can replace their temporary restoration with a better-fitting, permanent model.
