Strong, Permanent Dental Implants in Jupiter, FL

April 27, 2015

Did you have the unfortunate luck of losing a tooth? If you answered “yes,” then you are not alone. Thousands of Americans lose teeth every single year due to a number of factors, including tooth decay, facial trauma, and oral injuries. The loss of a tooth can be a frustrating and painful experience, and it can make the individual became self-conscious about image. Tooth loss can also lead to potential long-term issues if not addressed as soon as possible. Juno Beach Smiles, located near Jupiter, FL, offers a permanent solution to this situation in the form of dental implants.

Reliable, Professional Care

166637352The loss of a tooth is not only painful; it can lead to future oral problems. Your jawbone requires stimulation from all of your teeth, which it receives from the contacts your teeth create throughout the day (chewing, touching each other, etc.). Without stimulation, the jaw begins to deteriorate, losing mass, height, and width. This is why our talented doctors, professionals with years of experience, and our expert team of practitioners offer dental implants. These implants permanently replace your missing tooth and restore function and form to your mouth.

Restore Function to Your Mouth

When you arrive at our state-of-the-art offices, we will examine your mouth and take impressions of your problem area. Afterward, we will plan your treatment, making sure you receive the best possible care. We will surgically insert a biocompatible titanium post in your jaw. You will undergo a healing period, as your jaw naturally grows over and accepts the post and your gums heal. When your healing is complete, we will have you return to our office. We will bond a strong tooth replacement to the post, cementing it within the mouth. Then, after the bonding is complete, you can walk out of our building with a complete, luminous smile.

Get the Treatment You Deserve

Don’t suffer from the loss of a tooth any longer. Contact our office today and schedule a consultation with our phenomenal team. Our office happily accepts those who live in Jupiter, FL, Juno Beach, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Tequesta, and the surrounding communities.

The History of Dental Implants

July 16, 2013

In dental implants, we talked about the history of teeth whitening. Today, we’d like to focus on another popular service—dental implants.

As with whitening, people have always been looking for a way to replace missing teeth. Scientists have found evidence that the Mayans implanted tooth-shaped shells into the jaw 1,300 years ago to replace missing teeth. Going back even further, the Romans may have used cast-iron, while the Egyptians used gold wires. Other materials that have been used throughout history include rubber, ivory, copper, semi-precious stones, and oxen bone.

And then there are dental implants as we now know them. These date from around 1965. Scientist Per-Ingvar Brånemark discovered that titanium would fuse with bone tissue, leading eventually to the placement of the first dental implant in a human skull.

Why are modern-day dental implants so effective? Because they mimic nature’s design, with a crown on top and a titanium root underneath to act as a prosthetic root. What’s more, they’re versatile enough to replace a single tooth or a full row of teeth.

Not every patient is a candidate for dental implants, though. To find out if dental implants might be right for you, call Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry for a consultation. During your visit with us, Dr. Greg Riley and Dr. Duane Keuning will help you decide if dental implants will help you meet your needs, or if another service might be better.

We’re proud to provide cosmetic and restorative care to Juno Beach, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, and Tequesta.

Will It Ever Be Possible to Regrow Missing Teeth?

March 27, 2013

dental implantsRight now, the best way for a patient to replace one or more missing teeth is with dental implants. That’s because dental implants are structured in a way that’s similar to teeth. On top is the crown, which replaces the missing tooth. Below is the metal implant that acts like a prosthetic root. When inserted into the jaw, the implant will stimulate the growth of new bone tissue in the jaw, creating a strong, stable foundation and creating results that feel natural.

As effective as this option is, though, it may one day be possible for dentists like Dr. Duane Keuning and Dr. Greg Riley to help patients re-grow what they’ve lost. In March, Science World Report published an article reporting that doctors and researchers had found a way to use stem cells to grow a new tooth where one had been lost. The process involves taking a sample of gum tissue, isolating particular cells, and transplanting them back to the jaw.

You won’t be seeing dentists offer this as a service any time soon, but it could be that one day bioengineered teeth will replace dental implants.

Until then, talk to our team at Juno Beach Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry about how dental implants can help. Not every patient is a good candidate for the procedure, but many are. What’s more dental implants are versatile; they can be used to replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or even a full row of teeth. During a consultation visit with Dr. Keuning or Dr. Riley, we can help you understand your needs and your treatment options. We can also put together a personalized plan that will help you address those options.

Call us today to reserve an appointment. We serve patients from North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, and Tequesta.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

October 16, 2012

In our last post we talked about how missing teeth can change your smile. We mentioned that just one gap can result in misalignment, impaired functionality, and bone loss. But, if you have one or more missing teeth, there is hope. With a revolutionary solution like dental implants from our Juno Beach dental office, you can enjoy a smile that looks beautiful and feels completely natural again.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

As we explained last time, tooth roots have an important function. Besides anchoring your tooth to your jaw, they stimulate the growth of new bone tissue, keeping your jaw healthy and strong. When a root goes missing, though, the health of your jaw will suffer and further tooth loss may result.

Dental implants can help you avoid this. That’s because dental implants don’t just replace your missing tooth, they also replace your missing root. Using a prosthetic root made of titanium they can restore that tooth/root combination you lost when you lost your tooth.

Here’s what you can expect from a dental implant procedure. In the first phase, your titanium tooth root will be placed. How many implants you need will depend on your situation. If you’re just replacing one tooth, you’ll just need one implant. But if you’re having implant-retained dentures put in, you’ll need multiple roots to support your new smile.

The second stage involves the attachment of your new tooth (or teeth). This happens after your implant(s) and your jaw have had time to fuse. When there’s a strong enough foundation in place, your Juno Beach doctor will attach your teeth and your procedure will be finished. Afterwards, you can look forward to having a smile that functions just like a natural smile, with results that could last for the rest of your life.

Do you want to learn more about dental implants? Find out exactly what your options are by calling Juno Beach Restorative & Aesthetic Dentistry. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Duane Keuning or Dr. Greg Riley would be happy to help you put a treatment plan together.

Our Juno Beach office serves patients from North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Tequesta, and beyond.
