Imagine being able to smile and look your best after a traumatic oral accident. Implant dentistry can do this for you! Here at Boca Perio Implants, we can fully restore your mouth with Dental implant reconstruction.
Some people suffer extensive damage to their mouths, teeth and gums due to terrible accidents, tooth decay or genetic conditions. Dental implant reconstruction1 is a valuable service for these patients. A tooth implant can significantly improve their quality of life by making it easier to eat without pain and smile with confidence.
Upper or lower teeth benefit from this highly effective procedure. This could be as little as a sextant or a quadrant of the mouth, but would usually be a full arch or both arches (full mouth), and involves removing the hopeless teeth and/or implants, eliminating infections, and rebuilding the hard (bone) and soft (gum) tissues of the jaws to provide a strong foundation for implants placed to carry beautiful new porcelain/zirconium fixed crown and bridgework.
The implant process requires a small incision to be made in the gum tissue. Through this incision, Dr. Leichter places a small dental implant into the jawbone as an anchor for replacement teeth. The implant heals for several months for osseointegration2 before the new teeth are anchored to it. During this time, the implant helps to stimulate and preserve healthy bone structure to provide stable support for your replacement teeth.
You may be a candidate for dental implant reconstruction if you have enough bone in your jaw to support the implant and are in good overall health. Additionally, you should have healthy gums, no active signs of periodontal disease and be willing to commit to long-term follow-up care that may involve additional procedures or appointments.
Dental implant reconstruction is a great way to improve your mouth’s esthetics and functional health. By replacing missing teeth with permanent implants, you can enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile for years to come. Additional benefits include:

What is dental implant reconstruction?
Dental implant reconstruction is a procedure used to rebuild a substantial area of failing, infected, loose, unaesthetic, hopeless, painful or otherwise undesirable teeth with healthy, comfortable, predictable, functional, esthetic, fixture-supported periodontal prostheses.
How does a dentist fix a failed implant?
If an implant fails due to infection or loosening, a dentist can attempt to fix it by performing a re-implantation procedure. During this process, the old implant is removed from the jawbone and a new one is inserted. In some cases, the dentist may need to perform bone grafting3 procedures to strengthen the area around the implant before re-implantation.
Can a dental implant be removed or replaced?
Yes, dental implants can be removed or replaced if necessary. Depending on the reason for removal or replacement (such as infection), additional treatments may be required before another implant can be placed. A dentist or periodontist, such as Dr. Leichter, can evaluate the condition of an existing dental implant and determine whether it should be removed or replaced.
How long does it take to recover from dental implant reconstruction?
Recovery time following dental implant reconstruction can vary depending on age, overall health, and the complexity of the surgery. Throughout recovery, patients need to follow their dentist’s instructions closely when it comes to activities like eating, drinking, and taking prescription medications. At Boca Perio Implants, Dr. Leichter ensures that his patients are well-prepared for their dental implant reconstruction procedure.
