Enjoy a Natural Looking, Functional, Healthy Smile Once Again
When it comes to your smile, implants may be the next best thing to your natural teeth. Dental implants provide a strong foundation for tooth replacement that look, feel, and function just like the teeth you were born with. For someone who has lost their teeth, dental implants renew their ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
Implants are metal anchors that act as substitutes for tooth roots, providing stable anchors for artificial teeth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone, a routine procedure performed by Dr. Cascante, and then small posts (called abutments) are attached to the implant. Finally, the abutment is capped with a restoration, usually a natural-looking crown or denture.
‘‘Dr. Cascante and his entire staff are amazing. They truly go above and beyond to address all your concerns. Thank you.’’

Let Us Help Improve Your Quality of Life with Dental Implants!
Among the most important reasons dental implants are preferred by Dr. Cascante over any other option is their ability to preserve bone. When a tooth is lost, the jaw bone lacks the support it needs from the missing tooth root to stay strong and healthy. Over time, this causes bone re-absorption. In other words, the bone will begin to break down and deteriorate. This is what leads many denture-wearers to experience a “sunken” appearance in their face, particularly in the area of their cheekbones. Missing teeth have also been linked to health complications such as heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers. Because dental implants are direct replacements for tooth roots, bone in the jaw maintains the support it needs to provide a beautiful, healthy restoration for a lifetime.
Many of our patients tell us how life-changing dental implants have been for them! If you have one or more missing teeth and are currently considering your options for tooth replacement, we encourage you to discuss dental implants with our Miami dentist.
