Dental Implants are used to replace missing or severely damaged teeth that cannot be saved. They look, feel, and function nearly identical to natural teeth. With proper care, these high quality implants can last a lifetime. If you are interested in long term success, Dr. Brown’s practice really separates itself from the competition.
Dr. Brown annually places more dental implants than the majority of offices in Vero Beach. Dr. Brown thinks that it is important to have your implants placed by a specialist such as himself or by another periodontist/oral surgeon. “You wouldn’t want a family medicine doctor doing your brain surgery so why would you want someone other than a specialist placing your implant?” Dr. Brown uses the best implant systems that money can buy so that you can be confident with your investment.
A titanium post is surgically secured into the jaw. Once it has healed for approximately 3 months, a dental crown is placed, completely restoring the function of the tooth. On occasion, implants can be placed on the same day a tooth is removed. Conversely, it may be necessary to remove the tooth and then, with a series of traditional procedures, we prepare to place the implant at a later date. You can discuss the pros and cons for each option during your consultation appointment.
There are many options for dental implants in Vero Beach and Dr. Brown only uses the highest quality, time-tested implants for his patients. In addition to that, the majority of Dr. Brown’s implants are placed using a method called guided implant surgery. This is where a CBCT is used and merged to a replica of your teeth to place the implant perfectly using a custom appliance. Amazingly, these guided implant surgeries typically last approximately 30 minutes and without the need for any stitches. He stands by the science behind the dental implant materials he uses, so he can ensure that the materials he uses will improve your life instead of cause more problems.
Many people struggle with their dentures. Keeping them in place and experiencing the subsequent bone loss that follows dentures is frustrating. Stabilizing dentures with implants is one of the best applications of the technology available.
By anchoring dentures with dental implants, you can enjoy your favorite foods, speak without worrying about your dentures slipping, and feel confident in your smile again
