Dental Implants St. Cloud, FL
If you recently discovered you need a tooth extraction, or if you already have a gap in your smile, you know how traumatic tooth loss can feel. After all, your smile is an integral part of who you are. Our dental team is here to help you find a solution that works for you and gives you your confidence back.
At Modern Dentistry of St. Cloud, Dr. Yang Hua offers what most dentists consider the gold standard of tooth replacement: dental implants.
Affordable Dental Implant Treatment
Many people disregard dental implants as an option because they have heard they are expensive, so they believe dental implants are out of reach. When compared to other teeth replacement procedures such as bridges and dentures, however, you will find dental implant prices are competitive and affordable. Whether you want a single dental implant, or you need to replace multiple missing teeth, we can help.
Dr. Hua provides excellent value and quality care that fits into most budgets. Popular financing options also mean that you can have your dental implant now and pay it off over time.
How Long Do Dental Implants Take?
Dental implants require a bit of patience because they need time to integrate with your jawbone over the course of three to four months. Most patients tell us their implants were well worth the short wait because dental implants give them their smiles back.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Don’t let the idea of surgery put you off from dental implants. Our patients are often surprised how quickly they recover from dental implant surgery and have minimal discomfort. Dental implants are far less painful than extractions. Post-surgical care often includes simple over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain medications, which are usually enough for a painless recovery.
During your procedure, you can use noise-canceling headphones or watch your favorite television program to keep your mind relaxed.
The steps required for dental implants:
- Evaluation and planning
- Placement of the implant post
- Healing and integration
- Dental implant restoration
Proper planning is essential to the success of your dental implant. Dr. Hua has years of experience and uses the latest technology to obtain ideal results. Patients must have adequate bone and be healthy enough for surgery. If bone loss has occurred, procedures such as bone grafting make implant surgery possible.
As you heal, your dental implant becomes part of your jawbone, which is why our patients prefer dental implants. They mimic the appearance and function of your natural teeth, and you can eat all the foods you love!
Each dental implant crown is a custom creation designed to match your natural teeth in every way. No one will notice your dentistry – just your smile!
Dental Implant Dentures
If you have ill-fitting dentures that cause embarrassing mishaps or keep you from eating meals with friends and family, dental implants can secure your denture in place. Dr. Hua will place four to six dental implants per arch that act as an anchor for an overdenture. Dental implant dentures eliminate the slipping and falling that cause frustration for denture wearers.
Many people who have had dental implants in our St. Cloud dental office come back for their regular visits telling us how much their dental implants have improved their lives.
