Teeth are lost due to a variety of reasons, like tooth decay, gum disease, facial trauma, inherited defects, and natural wear and tear. There are a number of restorative options for tooth replacement, but none have proven to be as effective and long lasting as dental implants. For most patients, dental implants may be the only logical choice for long-term tooth replacement that restores oral function and facial aesthetics.
Dental Implants have been used to replace missing teeth for more than 20 years, and the recipients of those early dental implants are still satisfied they made the right choice. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Unlike removable dentures, which rest on the gum line, or fixed bridges which use adjacent teeth for support, dental implants are long-term replacements that your oral and maxillofacial surgeon surgically places in the jaw bone. Dr. Hernandez has placed hundreds of dental implants and would be happy to meet with you to discuss your options for tooth replacement. Please make an appointment at Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery today!
Your third molars are more commonly called wisdom teeth because they usually begin coming in between the ages of 17 to 21, which is considered the “coming of age” time period. Only an x-ray evaluation can determine if wisdom teeth are present. Most people develop four wisdom teeth that often do not have enough room within the jaw for proper growth; however, patients may only need 1 or 2 wisdom teeth removed.Wisdom teeth removal is necessary because their presence makes patients more susceptible to other oral health problems including bacterial growth, bad breath, periodontal disease, cyst development, tumor growth, gum disease, and tooth damage. Dr. Roland Hernandez recommends that the wisdom teeth be removed early, even if they haven’t emerged from the gum yet, as removal during adolescence makes the procedure quicker and the recovery process is much more rapid. If your wisdom teeth were recommended for removal or you need an expert opinion, please contact us to make an appointment at Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery.
If you have lost, or are on the verge of losing, your entire upper or lower arch of teeth, you may be eligible for the full-arch restoration. This innovative dental restoration method delivers a full-arch restoration of beautiful white teeth in an all-inclusive procedure. Rather than replacing teeth with a removable denture or costly individual dental implants, Dr. Roland Hernandez can place four or more specialized dental implants to receive a fixed denture. Full-arch restoration is one of the quickest dental restoration procedures possible.Full-arch restoration employs minimally invasive techniques for implant placement. The implants are placed directly into the jaw bone and can receive the permanent dentures immediately. The patient can enjoy the benefits of a new arch of teeth! To discover if you are a candidate for full-arch restoration, we encourage you to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Hernandez at Fort Lauderdale Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. He will review your medical history, answer your questions, and develop a plan for tooth replacement that fully restores your smile.
