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 of a patient’s jaw where the root of a missing tooth used to occupy.
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 in not only healing time but 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 utilized to fix that problem. If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and a crown can replace it. A dental implant replaces the lost natural root and the crown on top replaces the natural tooth. If you are missing more than one tooth, two or more implants can support either a permanent bridge or a removable bridge, or, even a denture.
If you are considering dental implants in Fort Lauderdale, Dr. Stone is available to discuss your options and how our team can help make your smile makeover a reality.
We also Offer One Day Dental Implants
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.

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.
