"I was so impressed with SEDA dental. I was in need of a periodontist. I chose one in Gardens that my dentist recommended. All I needed was a gum graph. He told me I had to pull my tooth out and do an implant and then get a gum graph. This was going to cost thousands. I chose to get a second opinion. Thank God I did. I went to SEDA dental and DMD Wang was amazing. He was honest with me and spent a long time talking with me. Of course all I needed was the gum graph. We scheduled it the following week and he was amazing! I will recommend everyone to him!"- A.L. / Google / Sep 17, 2019

Implant dentistry can restore a single missing tooth or several teeth by connecting it to an implant-supported bridge, crown, or denture. You may want an implant if you have a dental restoration but are bothered by the appearance, comfort, or if there is special cleaning needed. Implant-supported restorations can be cared for just like your regular teeth with daily flossing and brushing. In your consultation, we will evaluate the health of your jawbone and gums to decide if you are a good candidate for implant dentistry. In some cases, a bone or gum graft surgery may be needed prior to implant surgery to strengthen the implant's foundation. Dental implant surgery is not a good choice if you use tobacco products, are pregnant, or are being treated for another condition, including gingivitis.
What To Expect
To prepare for your dental implants, you may have teeth extracted, plus gum or bone grafts. As soon as you are ready for the implant to be placed, the needed areas will be given local anesthesia to numb your mouth. Sedation methods may be included to keep you comfortable throughout the process. An incision will be created in your gums, and then we will insert the titanium post in your jawbone. The incision in the gums will be sutured closed with part of the implant above the gums. This will be repeated if several implants are required. While the dental implant integrates into the jawbone and gums over the next several months, a temporary cover will be used to cover and protect the implants. As soon as your implant is healed into your jaw and gums, your custom restoration (bridge, denture, or crown) can be connected to your implant and adjusted for a proper fit.
You may notice some short-term inflammation in your mouth and lower face, plus discomfort, bruising, and minor bleeding after your implant procedure. A member of our team will tell you what is to be expected and what should be reported to our office. We may also write a prescription for pain relievers and antibiotics. As soon as your dental implants are integrated and your customized restoration is connected, you should maintain a good oral care routine at home that includes flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. You should attend annual dental exams and bi-annual professional cleanings at SEDA Dental of Jupiter so the health of your implants and restorations can be evaluated. We will also be able to decide if your restorations or implants should be repaired or replaced.
Based on your dental insurance company and exact coverage, a portion of the expenses of your implant surgery and custom restoration might be paid for. We will talk to your insurance company to understand your policy and determine your out-of-pocket costs. In your consultative appointment, we will estimate your expenses and talk to you about payment methods along with information on low-interest medical financing.
Implant dentistry may be a wonderful option if you would like a replacement for missing teeth that is simple to clean and can last for years. Our team of dental professionals will help you understand the entire procedure, starting with surgery to implant the posts and your custom restoration options.
