Modern dentistry in a calm and relaxed environment
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are tiny titanium posts and their main objective is to replace any damaged teeth. It is a minimum access surgical procedure that can easily be done in our Dental Office in Lauderhill, FL where we have everything necessary and doctors with enough experience to guarantee a pain free procedure. With Dental Implants you have the option to replace one or all of your teeth.
Not in all cases you need to replace each tooth which makes the procedure more expensive, we can use only two implants if you need a removable denture and four dental implants if you would need a removable denture for the upper and lower part of your mouth.
Dental implant supported tooth replacement is the only option that restores the entire lost tooth roots and all. This means results look and feel more natural, and that oral health is fully restored.
Many Dentists only perform half of the procedure, but our Specialized Dentists are proud to offer both the tooth implants placement and the tooth restoration in one convenient and modern practice. If you’re missing one or more teeth, we invite you to contact us to schedule a free dental implant consultation. We welcome patients from Lauderhill, Plantation, Sunrise, Tamarac and other nearby communities.
DENTAL IMPLANTS PROCESS
Not in all cases but some patients may require bone grafts from humans or animals to strengthen the jaw bone that can be weakened by the extraction process. It is a mostly fast and comfortable process that provides a stable base in your jaw which allows you to accept much better the insertion of the dental implant.
With a compound based on titanium, dental implants are gripped with screws in their jaw ensuring that the fusion between the implant and the jaw is as sophisticated as possible and that it feels as real as a real tooth.
Many people find the process of implant surgery quite acceptable, at Luxe Dental we have never received any complaints about Dental Implants Treatments thanks to the years of experience that our dentists have and the quality of equipment that exists in our premises.
LIVING WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS
Every Dental Implant that we make in our Dental Office in Lauderhill, Fl is with the objective that it lasts to each patient a whole life taking the necessary measures on the part of the patient so that the process of treatment and recovery is successful. Dental Implants are not supposed to move from their position or decay over time, the only thing that can threaten the duration of each implant is Advanced Gum Disease that is mostly generated when proper dental hygiene is not maintained.
In order to guarantee the duration of each dental implant, it is required to maintain proper dental hygiene, with regular visits to our dental office every 6 months in order to avoid any type of infection around the dental implant.
Dental Implants FAQs
How much do dental implants cost?
The average price of an implant in the US (including the implant, abutment and crown) is $3,4151 but costs vary depending on individual needs. Our Lauderhill dentist will discuss the price of your treatment plan during your initial consultation.
Dental implants can be more expensive than other solutions for missing teeth, such as dentures and bridges, but offer much more in terms of comfort and discretion, and provide a longer-term solution.
At Luxe Dental Care we believe in transparent pricing, so your dentist will always explain costs in full before beginning treatment.
Am I too old/young to have dental implants?
Dental implants can be suitable for adults of any age. Implants aren’t recommended for under 18s as the jaw is still growing and the bone tissue hasn’t fully developed yet.
Are there any reasons why I can’t have a dental implant?
In your initial consultation, you’ll be assessed for your suitability for treatment. Occasionally, dental implants might not be recommended for some patients for medical reasons. For example, if you have previously had radiotherapy in your jaw or if you have diabetes which isn’t under control.
If you smoke, you’ll be advised to give up before having an implant fitted. Research shows that the rate of implant failure is much higher for those who smoke than those who don’t
Can I replace removable dentures with implants?
Yes. Dentures are a popular solution to replace missing teeth, but people sometimes choose to replace their dentures with implants because they’re fixed into the jaw and eliminate the need for adhesives.
How painful is it to have a dental implant fitted?
Implants are fitted under local anaesthetic which numbs the mouth, so you shouldn’t feel your implant being fitted.
After your surgery, you’ll likely have some pain, bruising and swelling which will probably last around a week. This is normal, and you’ll be able to go to work the day after your procedure.
Your pain should ease with over-the-counter painkillers. If you’re concerned that your pain is abnormal, you should always consult your dentist.
How long do dental implants last?
If you look after them properly, implants can last as long as your natural teeth. It’s important to make sure you care for your implant properly to get the maximum lifespan out of it and reduce the risk of infection.
How long does the whole process take?
The time it takes for dental implants to be placed varies from person to person. The average length of time is between three and nine months, but this might be longer depending on your individual needs, and whether you need any preparation work such as extractions or bone grafts.
Why might I need a bone graft before I have my implant fitted?
Dental implants are inserted directly into the jaw, so your dentist needs to make sure there’s enough bone to support the implant. If you don’t have enough, it’s possible to graft bone from your other body parts, commonly your shin or hip, and insert it into the jaw.
A bone graft may be performed under local anaesthetic, or in hospital under general anaesthetic, depending on where the bone comes from. This may add some time to having your implant fitted, but can be necessary for the implant to be a success. Although this may sound intimidating, it’s a common surgery and is nothing to be worried about.
What is the difference between a dental implant and a bridge?
Dental implants are screwed into your jaw bone to hold a new, false tooth in place, whereas bridges use the surrounding teeth as support for a false tooth or teeth. Sometimes, some healthy parts of your natural teeth have to be cut away to support bridges, whereas dental implants do not harm the surrounding teeth.
Patients who have a number of chips, cracks, stains, or gaps between teeth visible when they smile may consider Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers.
Few things are as scary and painful as a dental emergency. When you need emergency dentistry, Dr. Mark Wilde provides that much needed service in the state-of-the-art dental facility of Luxe Family Dental in Lauderhill, FL.
The Dental Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material with adhesives and a high intensity curing light. The procedure gets its name because the materials are attached to the tooth. The joint is generally used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.
Crown and Bridges
Crowns and dental bridges are more permanent solutions for damaged or missing teeth. They are attached to your own teeth or implants to improve the appearance, alignment or strength of your teeth. Luxe Dental Dentists can work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan and perform crown and bridge dental services to restore your smile and confidence.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A simple extraction of teeth involves the removal of a tooth that is visible in the mouth. This could mean removing a damaged or decayed tooth, or removing teeth before receiving the brakes.
Inside your tooth, under the white enamel and a hard layer called dentin, you will find a soft tissue called pulp. This tissue contains blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, which help the root of your tooth grow during its development. A fully developed tooth can survive without the pulp because the tooth continues to be nourished by the tissues that surround it.

It is a minimum access surgical procedure that can easily be done in our Lauderhill Dental Office where we have everything necessary and doctors with enough experience to guarantee a pain free procedure.
