Dental Implants

Many people call Coast Dental St. Petersburg to ask if dental implants would be a good solution to replace missing teeth or to secure a denture in place. Dental implants are a strong, long-lasting solution that lets you eat, talk, and smile with confidence for years to come.

Dental ImplantA dental implant is a titanium post that is shaped like a small screw. The dentist or specialist places the post in the bone under your gums. The bone will gradually grow around the dental implant, creating a strong base for a crown, bridge, or fixed denture. Best of all, dental implants have a documented success rate of more than 95%, which is significantly higher than other tooth-replacement options.

How Dental Implants Work

At our Coast Dental office in St. Petersburg, we can use dental implants to replace missing teeth in several ways.

  • Single Tooth Replacement: When you have one tooth missing, Dental Implants Replace One Tooth. a single dental implant is inserted into the bone to replace the tooth root. Once that has healed, the dentist will place a custom-made, color-matched, stain-resistant crown on top of the dental implant so that it looks like a natural tooth. Best of all, a dental implant will never decay or need a root canal.
  • Multiple Tooth Replacement: If you have more than one tooth missing, your dentist Dental Implants Replace Multiple Teeth may recommend placing dental implants to secure a bridge. For example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, then the dentist may recommend placing two implants, one on other side of the gap, and then topping it with a three-point bridge. One of the advantages of having dental implants anchor a bridge is that the dental implants won’t weaken or decay.
  • Fixed Implant-Supported Dentures: Dental Implants Replace All Teeth Dental implants can also support a complete denture, which is an entire row of replacement teeth. Typically, the dentist or specialist will place four dental implant posts, and the denture will be attached. Implant-supported dentures are secure in the mouth. They don’t flap or slip like a normal denture can. That makes it easier to speak and eat.

What Do Dental Implants Cost?

Dental implants are often a cost-effective option when viewed as a long-term investment in your health, comfort, and well-being. Initially, implants are more expensive than other tooth-replacement methods such as dentures or bridgework. But dental implants last longer; in fact, most never need to be replaced.

We recommend you check with your dental insurance company to see what portion may be covered by your dental benefits. Coast Dental St. Petersburg also has third-party financing partnerships which may be able to help you work the cost of dental implants into your family budget.

The first step is to schedule a consultation to see if a dental implant is the right option for you. If you are missing one or more teeth, call our dentist in St. Petersburg at (727) 525-4499 today.

The dental assistant was very helpful and friendly, and kind, and also the orthodontist was very informative and helpful, and kind, and explained everything to me that she was doing to my tooth, and she made sure I was comfortable, calm, and had a smooth transition throughout the whole procedure, and the front desk receptionist was very friendly and helpful, and very accommodating, and kind as well. I would recommend Coast Dental to anyone for any dental work you need to get done. This place is always busy with that being said that says how valuable they are, and that's value in itself, and I loved my dentist and dental assistant as well very much so. They are the best place to go to for dental work to be done! I also have to come back to finish up my root canal. But I am way more comfortable, and calm about coming back to Coast Dental this second time around, and they made me feel very welcomed there, and cared about and for me, and loved by them like I'm family to them too. They are amazing.

I genuinely cannot thank Dr. Gardner, Astrid, and Alana enough for the exceptional care and service they provide each and every visit. My recent visits have pertained to fillings, and not once have I ever experienced discomfort or pain due to a procedure. In fact, Dr. Gardner and Astrid are adamant in assuring everything is going smoothly. The front desk is accommodating and friendly. As an entirety, it’s a wonderful office. It is always fairly busy, and that in itself shows the value of this office; they have several patients who value the facility and the staff. I highly recommend this dental office!
