What Are Dental Implants & When Should I Consider Them?
A dental implant is a small post (usually titanium alloy) that replaces a natural tooth root. This post fuses with your jaw bone in a matter of weeks and becomes a perfect platform to permanently support beautiful crowns, partials, or dentures.
Candidates include people who are currently missing teeth, need to have teeth replaced, or those who have other types of dental prosthetics (bridges, partials, dentures, etc) who would like an upgrade.
Are Missing or Damaged Teeth Really an Issue?
Missing or damaged teeth can lead to much more serious issues than just being embarrassed to smile. When a natural tooth is missing from the smile, the surrounding jawbone can start to deteriorate and weaken. This leads to that infamous “sagging face” which is noticeable on those who are missing teeth. Missing teeth also make things like eating and speaking annoyingly difficult as well. There is NO need to resign yourself to this fate.

Why Are Dental Implants Replacing Bridges and Dentures?
Why did mankind switch to metal tools instead of sticking with stone? Simply put, dental implants represent a huge step forward in the quality and longevity of a tooth replacement. Here are some of the biggest benefits of implant dentistry:
The implant itself is made of remarkably strong materials. It is practically indestructible once placed. A dental implant creates a platform to affix restorations to — that you don’t have to worry about breaking. Ever.
Not only are the materials strong, they are amazingly long-lasting. Your dental implant will shore up your gorgeous smile for the rest of your days.
A dental implant perfectly mimics a natural tooth. You can laugh, chew, brush, and whatever else as if it was your natural tooth.
Missing teeth allow your other teeth to shift, creating gaps or alignment issues. This can alter your bite and lead to jaw function problems. A dental implant prevents this movement.
Most people don’t realize that smile gaps can be deadly. Dental implants close the gaps that become traps for food and bacteria — fending off gum disease.
When natural teeth are missing, the jaw begins to weaken because it is no longer supporting the teeth. A dental implant will help the jaw bone maintain its structure and integrity. This means you will look younger, longer.

Dental Implant FAQ
How much do dental implants cost?
Due to the custom nature of every individual dental implant procedure, there is no real set price we present here. However, our free initial consultation will lay out the exact fees to cover your specific treatment.
Dental insurance often covers a portion of the expense. You can learn more about insurances we accept here.
Are dental implants painful?
At Weinberg Dentistry we take great pride in the efforts we take to make sure our patients are comfortable during every treatment. We have outfitted our West Palm Beach dental practice with all of the technology and amenities needed to make every dental implant procedure pleasant. This includes sedation aids, anesthesia, and effective pain relief medications.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. Generally, dental implants have a viable usage period of over 25 years. The materials themselves will outlast you, but sometimes nature catches up with the dental implant patient and an implant needs to be replaced or repaired. The crowns or dentures affixed to the implant are what will need to be replaced every 10 years or so.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Often those with missing or damaged teeth make great candidates for dental implants. Also, many who are looking to replace old dental work (like bridges or dentures) can benefit greatly from switching to dental implants. Implants are not for everyone though. Your initial consultation will be the place to determine if dental implants are indeed a good option for you and what the treatment plan would be. We will not recommend the treatment to you unless we are confident they are right for you.
How should I prepare for the procedure?
Once you agree to a treatment plan, our team will give you clear, easy-to-follow instructions to prepare for the visit. You will most likely need someone to give you a ride to and from your procedure. Most everything else will be handled by our team. We try to make the whole process as smooth and easy for you as possible.
Is there any aftercare I should consider?
There is a healing period associated with any dental implant procedure. After your visit we will provide you with all the care instructions for your specific procedure to ensure the likelihood of long-term success. The care instructions include hygiene, prescriptions, and follow-up visits.
