What are dental implants?
For an individual who is missing one or more teeth, Dr. Marilyn Amaral may recommend dental implants in Miami, Florida. A dental implant that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post, which fuses with the jawbone, and a dental restoration, like a dental crown or bridge.

What can dental implants do for you and your smile?
– Improve your appearance and self-esteem
– Allow you to properly eat and speak again
– Improve your comfort
– Improve your oral health
– Provide a durable and long-lasting replacement for a lost tooth

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, it is imperative that you have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. In addition, you must be dedicated to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider, like whether or not you are a smoker or use tobacco products. Talk to our dentist to see if dental implants are right for you.

How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. Be sure to visit Foreversmile Dentistry at least every six months for your professional teeth cleaning.
