After losing a permanent adult tooth, most people assume that the gap left behind will remain empty. In reality, an exposed tooth socket has the potential to become infected, can cause teeth to shift out of alignment, and can cause other problems as well. Patients can avoid those oral health issues with a dental implant We have the tools and skills necessary to provide patients with a dental implant that meets their specific needs.

Amazing Smiles Dental Spa provides the best quality care for dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Pembroke Pines.
Advantages of Fort Lauderdale Dental Implants
Advances in dentistry have created more options than ever for restoring missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants provides a more stable alternative to bridges and removable dentures. Implants offer a number of advantages for restoring the function of your teeth, the appearance of your smile, and improving overall oral health.
Patients prefer implants for a number of reasons, such as:
- Greater comfort
- A more natural look and feel
- Closing gaps in your smile
- Improved function for eating and chewing
In addition to the functional and aesthetic benefits, dental implants can preserve your long-term dental health. When teeth are missing, the surrounding teeth can begin to shift into the empty spaces, which creates alignment issues. The bone and supporting tissues can also be affected by missing teeth. Implants prevent bone loss, which is important for long-term oral health.
Dental implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. We offer dental implants in Fort Lauderdale with a crown to replace a single tooth. Implants can also be used to provide greater stability compared with removable bridges or dentures.
Implants can be used to replace teeth lost due to:
- Tooth decay
- Periodontal disease
Dental implants are an excellent choice for many patients, but not everyone is a good candidate for this procedure. You need to have sufficient bone and healthy gum tissue for the placement of dental implants. We start with an examination to assess your restoration needs and determine if implants are the best treatment option for you.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Implants are titanium posts that create an artificial tooth root to replace a missing tooth. The procedure for implants in Fort Lauderdale requires two visits to the office. During the first visit, the implant is placed and a mold is taken to create your replacement tooth. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone and allowed to heal. As it heals, the implant fuses to the bone and creates a stable and permanent base for your restorations, whether it is one crown, a bridge, or dentures.
After the implant is fully healed and your replacement teeth are ready, you will return to our office for a second procedure. During this visit, a post is attached to the implant, which will hold your replacement tooth, bridge, or denture in place. The replacement tooth or bridge is then mounted to the post. With good home care and regular dental visits, your implants will last for many years.

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?
Preventative care is an important part of ensuring that your dental implants function properly. Be sure to brush at least twice a day, using a toothbrush with soft bristles. It is also important to use an interdental brush and floss around the hard-to-reach areas on and around the implant. It is also a good idea to use a dentist-recommended toothpaste.
