Receive the smile you deserve...

FROM ONE OF Sarasota's MOST REQUESTED IMPLANT DENTISTS!

Dental Implants

At a special savings for new patients!

If you are suffering from missing or decaying teeth, you most likely are also experiencing discomfort, pain, and decreased confidence. Replacing missing teeth today is easier than ever with the modern advancement of dental implants! With dental implants, you can receive a new tooth that works and functions just like (if not better than) the original. 

This life-changing procedure improves your smile, oral health, and quality of life. Dr. Aygen performs dental implant procedures for patients in Sarasota, FL who are in need of a permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option.

How do dental implants work? 

The roots of your teeth and the bone in your jaw have a special relationship. Roots help stimulate the bone to maintain its density and the bone helps hold the roots (and the tooth) in place. When you lose a tooth, however, this relationship ends. Without the root to stimulate it, the bone begins to resorb, becoming thinner and more fragile.

As your bone deteriorates, other teeth become affected. The teeth immediately adjacent to the space left by the missing teeth are likely to tip towards the empty space, becoming loose in the sockets. Eventually, you are likely to lose more teeth. Dental implants put a stop to this cycle.

A dental implant is an artificial root upon which a manufactured tooth can be placed. Implants are used to support the replacement of a single tooth, multiple teeth, or larger prostheses such as dentures, depending on the individual’s requirements and condition. Placement of the implant stabilizes bone levels and may prevent bone loss, resulting in greater long-term support, function, and esthetics. Implants are a superior way to replace missing teeth, as they do not require alteration of adjacent teeth. They are also an excellent way to stabilize a denture.

Our patients love dental implants because they look and feel natural.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

We know that dental implants can truly be life changing for our patients! Here are a few benefits that dental implants can provide:

 • Speak Naturally
 • Perserve Facial Structure

In today's world of replacing missing teeth, almost anybody is a candidate for a dental implant!

If you have one or more missing teeth, then a dental implant can be placed to provide a platform for a crown or bridge to rest upon to provide you with a functional, yet cosmetic, replacement. 

How do you determine who is an implant candidate?

A three-dimensional scan (CT) is usually needed to make sure your bone foundation is strong enough to support an implant. If your bone needs more foundation, then a supplement bone graft may be added to make sure that your implant can be supported properly. This strength and support are what allows implants to be stable and long-lasting. We are happy to work with you to help you get the care you need and want.

If you’ve been missing a tooth and you are planning to get a dental implant, we know you probably want to have your smile completed as quickly as possible.

Implant Healing Process

There is, however, a healing process that usually takes a few months. The length of the process can depend on a variety of factors, including the location of the implant, the type of implant used, how many implants were placed, and your own personal health. It is important that the implant heals and becomes integrated with your bone structure so that it has the stability and strength to support your replacement tooth.

In most cases, healing is uneventful. Many people don’t even notice that the implant is there. If you do have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to call our Sarasota dental office at (941) 927-8287.

Dental Implant Restoration

We’ll keep an eye on the healing process, and once we’ve determined that your implant is ready for restoration, we can take the next steps. At this point, we’ll take an impression of the implant and the surrounding teeth and your custom abutment and crown will be made and set into place at your next appointment! This is always an exciting moment, and we can’t wait for you to see your restored smile!

Because dental implant placement requires surgery, many patients expect it to be a long, drawn-out, uncomfortable process.

The truth is that placement of a dental implant is actually very quick!  

Initial Implant Placement 

In most cases, the actual placement can be done within 30 minutes. This is because there is a lot of planning and thought process done ahead of time, before the procedure, to determine the size, location, and type of implant would best be used in that case. You will be a part of the planning process and you always have a say in your dental care at Sarasota Dental Arts. We use advanced technology to make sure the placement is precise and successful.

Many patients can do well with local anesthetic during the placement procedure, but IV sedation can be provided to those with dental anxiety. Dr. Aygen is happy to review your needs with you and determine whether you are a good candidate for in-office IV sedation during your procedure.

As far as pain and discomfort, you might experience some achiness and swelling following the procedure, but a lot of our patients take one over-the-counter pain med (like Tylenol of Advil) the evening of their procedure and are fine and back to normal activities the next day! Contact our office today for more information!

When patients ask about a dental implant, they often don’t realize that a dental implant is not a single piece with a porcelain crown on it.

Components of a dental implant

There are 3 parts to a dental implant; the small implant part that gets inserted into the bone underneath your gum tissue, the abutment piece which goes into the implant part (that will then show above the gum tissue) and the final implant crown which will be placed over the abutment piece. There are also different implant systems.

What is the dental implant process like?

All implant cases begin the same way: with the initial consultation. Here, we help our patients
patients to determine whether or not dental implants are the right choice. This includes taking X-rays and 3D images to get a closer look at any remaining teeth, as well as the jawbone. Our goal with the consultation process is to EMPOWER and EDUCATE (never pressure). WE’ll also be able to answer any questions you have about financing etc. during this appointment.

If you are a candidate for implants, we can move forward with creating your new smile!
