What are dental implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. A dental implant consists of a titanium root surgically inserted into the spot where the missing tooth once was.
Later, after the implant has integrated into the jawbone, the implant can be used to support bridges, crowns, or even dentures. Treatment time varies depending on your healing. But the skill of the doctor doing the work is an important factor not only in the healing, but also in the successful integration of the implant into the bone.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants are a good fit for most patients. Implants are for people that are missing one or more teeth, and age is not a deciding factor for adults. If you are healthy enough to have a tooth extracted, then you can have a dental implant.
Sometimes there isn’t enough physical bone present to hold an implant, but there are many techniques that can be used to fix that problem. If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. To clarify, a dental implant replaces the lost natural root and the crown on top replaces the natural tooth. However, if you’re missing more than one tooth, two or more implants can support either a permanent bridge, a removable bridge, or even dentures.
To sum up, if you’re considering dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, you should stop by to talk with Dr. Stone. He has the experience and knowledge to make your smile look and feel brand new.
One Day Dental Implants in Fort Lauderdale
Often, we talk about how One Day Dental Implants take longer than one day. But we do offer the same new technology that other dentists offer. We just like our patients to know exactly what the timeline looks like.
One Day Dental Implants are often done with a crown that can be removed by the dentist, but not by the patient, with an acrylic prosthesis, rather than the conventional porcelain. An advantage to this method is that a patient leaves the office with a beautiful new tooth, or teeth, rather than having to wear a denture while waiting for the bone to heal around the post, which can take several months. After your bone does heal, you will need to come in for that final appointment to get your permanent crown.
Dr. Stone teaches dental implant therapy to dentists in two different locations: Atlantic Coast Dental Research Clinic at Palm Beach College and Broward Dental Research Clinic at Broward College. He is a specialist in tooth replacement, a Prosthodontist, and has been placing dental implants surgically since 1975.
