What is the Best Option to Replace a Tooth?

Many patients ask us – What is the best option to replace a tooth? Implants are typically considered the best option for restoring a missing tooth both aesthetically and durability wise. A dental implant fitted with a crown is a long lasting option that can be used for a single tooth, multiple teeth or an entire smile.

At Dr. Ramon Bana’s dental office, we try to make the process as quick as possible. The typical process for completion of a Miami dental implant is usually completed in multiple office visits. Around 3 to 4 visits should suffice and most people can return to work after each visit.

Dental Implant Process

  1. Consultation and initial exam. We will conduct a thorough exam of your situation, answer questions and review your medical history. We will also discuss the best possible treatment options for your situation.
  2. The next visit will consist of a dental implant. The implant is a substitute for the missing natural tooth root. A temporary tooth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with you natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement tooth.
  3. On the following visit, we will place the abutment, a connector placed on, or built into the top of the implant that will attach to the replacement tooth. In some situations, we’ll place the abutment on the prior visit.
  4. Finally, we’ll place the custom made crown (replacement tooth).
