Dental Implants in West Palm Beach
Dr. Steven Bussell takes a special interest in dental implants because they’re the closest you can come to having your natural teeth again. To provide this valuable treatment for our patients, he sought additional training with leading experts in the dental implant field.
From tooth extraction to your custom implant crown, you can enjoy world-class dentistry from an experienced Royal Palm Beach dentist committed to outstanding care at every stage.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Did you know that dental implants also protect your oral health? They help keep teeth from shifting and prevent bone loss, and you won't have to deal with dietary restrictions.
You can count on Dr. Bussell to design a crown that looks so real that no one will notice your dental work. Dental implants are easy to take care of. Take care of them the same as your natural teeth, including twice-a-year visits to our Royal Palm Beach, FL, dental office.
The Dental Implant Procedure in Royal Palm Beach
Implant Evaluation and Placement
Dental implants need adequate bone quality to support them. Dr. Bussell begins with x-rays and an exam to determine the ideal location for your implant. We offer the most advanced imaging process in dentistry with our Carestream 8100 3D CBCT.
We plan the complete surgical procedure digitally, from start to finish. This allows Dr. Bussell to vastly reduce the time it takes to place dental implants while improving accuracy. Once he develops a plan, he will schedule implant surgery, and most of our patients report relatively quick recovery times.
Bone Grafting and Sinus Lifts
Insufficient bone or interfering sinuses don’t automatically mean you can’t get implants. Bone grafting and sinus lifts make dental implants a possibility for most people, and Dr. Bussell provides both services right here at our comfortable dental office.
Implant Healing and Integration
Dental implants integrate with your natural bone in a process that takes 3–6 months. Once it integrates, the implant is a permanent part of your dental anatomy, and Dr. Bussell can place a custom dental implant crown that matches and functions like your adjacent teeth.
Immediate Implant Placement
If a tooth requires extraction, sometimes we can place the implant at the same time, eliminating multiple surgeries and reducing the number of appointments. Our Royal Palm Beach, FL, dental implant patients appreciate the convenience of having a dentist who offers multiple facets of dentistry in one office.
We offer implant-supported dentistry options for multiple teeth that offer stability without using one implant per missing tooth.
Implant Bridges and Dentures
An implant-supported bridge makes it possible to replace more teeth while adding the support necessary for chewing.
Implant dentures combine dental implants’ stability with dentures to lock them in place. This improves denture fit and function and eliminates dentures that shift or fall out.
Who Is a Good Dental Implant Candidate?
Most people with missing teeth looking for a long-term tooth replacement are candidates for dental implants, although some might need further treatment to prepare the jawbone to receive the implants.
At our Royal Palm Beach, FL, dental office, we ensure that anyone who wants dental implants can get them. Sometimes, we might recommend a bone graft or sinus lift to improve success rates.
People who smoke might not be disqualified from getting dental implants, but smoking slows down the healing process and reduces the chances for success.
Those who underwent chemotherapy in the past might also have issues with healing after dental implant placement.
