Dental Implants Delray Beach

Dental Implants Delray Beach

Often the best treatment for missing or failing teeth

Dental Implants are often the first choice and a standard of care because:

  • Next best option to healthy, natural teeth
  • Built to last as implants are a long-term solution
  • Enjoy life without worrying about your teeth!
  • Retain your natural face shape and smile
  • Protect healthy bone and teeth
  • Eat your favorite foods!

For most people who are interested in replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the best option because implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges, or a denture.

Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and many people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by our Periodontal Surgeon will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. At that time, you may also want to ask about the option of Sleep Dentistry, which is performed under the administration and supervision of our board certified MD anesthesiologist in the comfort and safety of our state-of-the-art surgical suite.

When it’s time to place a crown over your implant, our master ceramist will craft your crown in our own on-site dental laboratory. At the Spodak Dental Group, we are able to provide you with the continuity of care you deserve in a comfortable setting with as few visits as possible.

Our facility was designed with your healing in mind

Bi•o•phil•i•a

noun a scientific movement linking human health and responsiveness to natural environments

Life loves life. It may seem like common sense to some, but it’s actually real science. Recent studies in biophilia have shown that people actually heal faster and perform better when surrounded by nature and natural light, which is why we designed every inch of this facility based on this principle.

Each operatory has floor-to-ceiling windows and live plants, which allow for a calming and healing environment for the patient. Doctors and team members also benefit as natural lighting lowers the occurrence of human errors.

Implant care Instructions

General Instructions:

  • Avoid strenuous physical activity and smoking following the procedure.
  • Start the prescribed medications immediately and avoid all alcoholic and carbonated beverages.
  • The pain medications prescribed for you may cause drowsiness and impair your ability to drive and perform delicate tasks. Avoid all activities requiring your full, alert attention while on pain medication.
  • Be sure to drink plenty of fluids during the healing process.
  • Apply cold compresses to the surgical side of your face intermittently during the first 48 hours. Following this period, apply moist or wet warm compresses intermittently to reduce swelling as needed.
  • If necessary, you can lubricate the corners of your mouth with lip balm.
  • Begin a complete, but soft diet and avoid spicy and crunchy foods.

Detailed Instructions:

  • Oral Hygiene: Unless specifically instructed not to, on the day following surgery, light, gentle brushing of the teeth involved in the surgical area should be started. Please use a soft or extra soft tooth brush only. Frequent gentle rinsing of the mouth with warm saltwater (1 teaspoon salt with 8 oz. water) after the first 24 hours will aid in the healing process, and will help keep the mouth clean. If prescribed, utilize the bacterial mouth rinse (Peridex) twice daily and avoid eating or drinking for 20 minutes after each application. If given PerioSciences AO ProVantage Gel, apply five times a day for the first two weeks, and twice a day thereafter, preferably once in the morning and once in the evening.
  • Discomfort: Following all types of surgery, a certain amount of discomfort is anticipated. If pain is not adequately controlled by the prescribed medication(s), or persists for a prolonged period of time (five days or more), please contact the office. Pain medication is prescribed to alleviate discomfort during the initial healing period. However, patients may elect to not take this medication at all, reduce the frequency or dosage, or substitute the prescribed pain medication with over the counter medications, such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or Aleve.
  • Swelling: A slight amount of swelling and discomfort is not unusual following most oral surgery and usually peaks two days after surgery. The use of cold compresses gently applied to the surgical area for five to 10 minutes every 30 minutes (during the first 24-48 hours) will help to control the post-operative swelling and discomfort. If swelling persists, apply moist heat (warm washcloth or hot water bottle). If swelling continues after two days, or interferes with swallowing, please call the office.
  • Bleeding: Some bleeding or oozing may stain your saliva. If the bleeding is excessive, (i.e. nose bleed), for more than five minutes, two hours after your procedure, continue to bite on gauze. Avoid exertion, lie down with your head elevated at least 30 degrees (two pillows), and call the office.
  • Fever: A slight fever or chills may occur. It is of no consequence unless it persists more than 24 hours. A persistent low grade temperature or one above 102 degrees should be reported to our office.
  • Diet: Drink fluids immediately after surgery and avoid chewing on the operated area of your mouth. Soft foods can be eaten until you feel ready to return to your regular diet. The following require little pressure to chew and provide the necessary nutrients: protein shakes, bananas, cooked fish, cereals, pasta, mashed potatoes and whole grain soft breads. You should continue your usual vitamin supplements. Returning to your normal diet and proper calorie intake will promote faster healing.

Special Medications:

  • If you are taking other medication prescribed by your physician, be sure to inform your doctor and continue taking them as usual unless otherwise directed. Antibiotics or other medication(s) may be prescribed for you and please take these as directed on the label(s). Antibiotics especially need to be taken as prescribed and one should complete the full regimen as given. Female patients should also be aware that some antibiotics may interfere with the effectiveness of certain oral contraceptives.

Specific Post Implant Placement Instructions:

  • Following your surgical procedure, extreme care should be exercised to avoid placing any biting pressure on the implant or implant site(s), no matter how light the biting force. If a removable prosthetic appliance was placed, it should not contact the implant or tissue in the area of the implant placement at all. If a temporary was placed on the implant, all biting contact with or without food should be avoided. If you feel any contact on the temporary when your teeth come completely together, please contact the office immediately and schedule an appointment right away. Premature pressure on an implant prior to three months of healing may result in implant failure and/or healing complications.
  • Remember that not all implants fuse to the surrounding bone, however, following all the instructions will help minimize the risk of implant failure.

Future Appointments:

  • Appointments will be made for you to evaluate your healing and monitor your progress following your surgical procedure(s). These appointments are important and should be kept as scheduled.
