Dental Implants

Missing teeth can be embarrassing, causing people to hide their smile and lose their self-esteem. The space created by missing teeth can easily become infected with bacteria, cause other teeth to shift out of place, and make it difficult for people to speak or eat correctly. Dr. Fallah and the staff at Apex Dental are sensitive to the hardship a missing tooth can create. We provide dental implants so that our patients can regain their self-confidence, improve their health, and approach life boldly.

Installing dental implants is a complex procedure, and due to the stellar reputation of Dr. Fallah, patients throughout the 33544 area trust us to replace their missing teeth. We know that there are multiple dental providers to choose from, so Dr. Fallah and the staff at Apex Dental are constantly looking for ways to improve the overall experience of our patients. Our office is conveniently located in Wesley Chapel, and we treat patients throughout Florida, offering them the opportunity to restore missing teeth in a way that looks natural and beautiful.

The Process of Installing Dental Implants

If one or more of your teeth have been lost, you may qualify for dental implants as a way to permanently replace the missing teeth. In order to find out, schedule an appointment with our Wesley Chapel dentist's office by calling 813-358-6808. Dr. Fallah will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Before you can get started, your gums need to be healthy, and your jawbone needs to be strong. If, Dr. Fallah identifies any cavities or signs of gum disease, this will need to be treated first.

Once you are cleared for the procedure, the staff at Apex Dental will take an impression of your mouth so that the new teeth can be created in a dental lab. Each tooth will be made to match the size and shape of the surrounding teeth along with having a perfect color match. This way, your smile will appear completely natural once done. Patients throughout FL are delighted with the results since no one can tell which teeth are real and which ones are synthetic.

The next step in the procedure is to have a metal post implanted under the gum line. This aspect of the procedure is what sets dental implants apart from other forms of cosmetic dentistry, and Dr. Fallah is a true expert at performing the procedure. The metal post is secured to the jawbone in order to create a durable, synthetic root system that rivals the strength of natural roots with one exception – metal can’t become infected. Over the course of a couple of months, the metal post and jawbone will fuse together. This creates a level of durability that cannot be replicated in any other type of procedure.

Afterward, Dr. Fallah will secure the new synthetic tooth to the metal post at the surface of the gums. The new tooth is attached so securely that patients can eat their favorite foods, maintain an active lifestyle, play sports, and more, without fear of their tooth becoming loose or falling out. Patients throughout FL enjoy the benefits that come from never having to worry about their tooth again.

Patients in the 33544 area trust Dr. Fallah and the staff at Apex Dental to provide dental implants in a way that is comfortable and functional. With any type of surgical procedure, it is important to visit an expert, and by doing so, you will reduce your risk of complications or the implants not functioning properly. Dr. Fallah takes the time to make sure that every aspect of the procedure is completed correctly – the first time.

Teeth restored with dental implants can’t get cavities! A replacement tooth, or crown, doesn’t decay like a natural tooth, but you still must brush, floss and care for it and your surrounding natural teeth and gums in the same manner as natural teeth. Regular professional cleanings and dental check-ups also are essential.

Caring for Dental Implants

Once dental implants have been installed, they are extremely easy to care for. We hear from patients throughout Wesley Chapel with questions that range from “Do implants come out?” and “How do I brush my teeth?" The answer is fairly simple. Since dental implants are surgically installed by creating a synthetic root system, they are durable and secure and will not fall out or become loose. This means you can go play basketball, run in a 10k, and wrestle with your kids – without worrying about your tooth coming out.

In order to care for your dental implants, we advise our patients throughout Florida to brush and floss their teeth throughout the day like they normally would. Additionally, it is important to schedule dental exams and cleanings with Dr. Fallah at least twice a year. The staff at Apex Dental will help to clean your teeth and ensure that they stay healthy. This step is incredibly important because while dental implants cannot become infected themselves, the teeth around them can. If in the future, you suffer from a severe case of gum disease or a dental abscess, the infection can spread to your jawbone. This puts your implants in jeopardy because in order to stay secure, the jawbone must be in good health. If it becomes infected, your dental implants and all of your teeth will be in jeopardy.

If you currently have dental implants and your teeth start to hurt, call (813) 358-6808 to schedule an appointment immediately. This way, we can identify any infection and treat it before it can spread into the jawbone. As long as you follow these simple preventive care steps, your implants and natural teeth should remain in good health.

Sandra R.

"Dr. Fallah and his staff genuinely care about their patients, which is so rare. I've had several appointments over the past few years at Apex Dental and every experience was helpful, informative, and as pleasant as possible. I'm very thankful to have found a dentist like Dr. Fallah, who is not interested in up-selling procedures (like many dentists I've seen in the past, unfortunately). I will keep recommending Apex to everyone who asks."
