Patients of the Oldsmar, FL area who are faced with tooth loss are encouraged to work with our dental team at Solay Dental to restore the smile’s function, appearance, and health. One or more teeth lost from trauma or disease can significantly affect the mouth. Without replacing missing teeth, patients may experience bone loss and shifting of the remaining teeth within the bite.
Our team may recommend to patients the benefits of dental implants, which are tiny titanium posts the dentist surgically placed into the jaw bone. Bone growth through a process known as osseointegration can then occur, ensuring the implant is firmly in place for a proper foundation. The portion of the dental implant above the gum line, known as the abutment, is then covered with a crown, dental bridge, or even a full denture to complete the process.
