Dental Implants in Naples, FL
Dental implants enable dentists to create healthy, attractive smiles in an innovative way. Used to replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants are another alternative to conventional bridges and dentures.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
In essence, dental implants can act and look like natural teeth. And, because they maintain bone mass, dental implants can help prevent additional tooth loss as well as the sunken facial appearance associated with missing teeth. Learn more
How Long Does an Implant Procedure Take?
Single-tooth implant procedures can be used in people who are missing one or more teeth. An implant is surgically placed in an opening that your dentist makes in the jawbone. After the implant integrates (attaches) to your bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth. Learn more
Are You A Candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted in a patient’s jaw bone. In order to be a good candidate for dental implants, it’s very important that a patient is in good overall health and doesn’t suffer from any conditions that could complicate or prohibit oral surgery.

What Happens At The First Dental Implant Appointment?
To determine the appropriate site for the dental implant placement, Dr. Skupny, a dental implant dentist in Naples, typically takes x-rays. Impressions are taken of the mouth and then used by the dental laboratory to create a customized dental implant restoration. Many dental implant dentists fabricate surgical guides to simplify the placement of the dental implants. Learn more
