Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots similar in shape to metal screws. After your dentist places the implants in your jawbone, they bond with your natural jawbone and become a sturdy base for supporting crowns, bridges, or dentures. A connector post, called an abutment, firmly secures the new teeth in place long-term.

OneSource Dental of South Tampa offers custom-fitted, same-day CEREC® crowns and bridges that look and function just like your natural teeth. They’re comfortable, strong, durable, and long-lasting.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer numerous benefits for your oral health, including:

  • No more tooth gaps
  • Beautiful smile
  • Strong, long-lasting teeth
  • Natural-looking smile
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Less adjacent tooth shifting
  • Self-confidence
  • Improved quality of life

Dental implants available at OneSource Dental of South Tampa have successfully been used for more than 30 years. They’re the strongest devices available to support artificial replacement teeth. Dental implants create stability after completely restoring teeth that aren’t salvageable. 

OneSource Dental of South Tampa transforms your smile to optimal health and beauty, so you can smile with confidence and eat with enjoyment.

Are dental implants right for me?

The OneSource Dental of South Tampa team determines which restorative dental treatments are best after discussing your oral health history, reviewing the results of your dental X-rays, and evaluating your gums and teeth. They tailor each treatment to your individualized needs.

You might first need a tooth extraction to remove teeth that are severely decaying or damaged and can’t be saved.

What happens during dental implant placement?

During dental implant placement, the OneSource Dental of South Tampa team inserts metal posts into your jaw while you relax. They first numb the treatment area and offer a sedative to make sure you’re comfortable during the procedure.

Your dentist then digitally scans your mouth to create custom-fitted crowns, bridges, or dentures. They secure abutments to the implants and attach your new teeth when they’re ready. Your dentist makes sure they fit comfortably and securely.

How should I take care of dental implants?

It’s important to take good care of dental implants to avoid damaging them. Don’t chew on hard objects, floss daily, and brush your teeth after meals. See the OneSource Dental of South Tampa team every six months for professional dental cleanings, and call the office if you develop usual symptoms or damaged implants.
