At Suncoast Dental, our goal is to give you teeth that look and feel like your own. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that one of our dentists will place into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people with good oral health who have lost a tooth, those who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease, or those with tooth loss due to injury.
Implants are devices that replace the roots of missing teeth, and are used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants are placed in your jawbone surgically. Typically, implants feel more natural and secure than other methods of replacing missing teeth, such as dentures.
What Our Dental Implants Can Do For You
While high-tech in nature, single or multiple tooth implants are more like a tooth saving situation rather than the traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are so natural looking, you may forget you ever lost or replaced a tooth!
Your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself. We at Suncoast Dental know how important it is to have a clean and even smile. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, call us! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own! Under proper conditions implants can last a lifetime.
What Dental Implants Can Do For Me?
Endosteal [in the bone]is the most typical form of implant. The various forms of implants include using screws, cylinders or blades surgically placed into the jawbone. Each implant holds one or more prosthetic teeth. This type of implant is generally used as an alternative for patients with bridges or removable dentures.
Additionally, our All on 4 dental implants are a great way to have full mouth dental implants. By simply using four strategically placed dental screws, we can replace an entire row of teeth. This complete tooth replacement will give you a strong and long-lasting foundation. Unlike dentures, all on 4 dental implants are permanent and prevents future bone loss. All on 4 implants can transform your life. See your new radiant smile in just a single day! Contact us today to schedule an appointment for your new all on 4 implants today.

Advantages of Dental Implants over Dentures or a Bridge
Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth.
- Aesthetic Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth! Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know you have a replacement tooth.
- Tooth-saving dental implants don't sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighboring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, which is a significant long-term benefit to your oral health!
