Dr. Alexei Mikerin, DDS
Dr. Alexei Mikerin at Dental Excellence of Englewood, FL Specializes in Dental Implants for Permanent Smile Restoration
Missing teeth are a problem in and of themselves, but in addition to putting gaps in your smile, a missing tooth, or missing teeth, can bring about problems like jaw misalignment, bone deterioration and accelerated tooth decay. While some patients have opted for dental prostheses, like bridges, crowns and dentures, Dr. Alexei Mikerin of Florida’s Dental Excellence of Englewood offers his patients a specialty in dental implants.
Dental implants provide Dr. Mikerin’s patients with a smile renewal. This is because dental implants not only fill in gaps for a suitable and attractive appearance of the smile, they function and fit like real teeth. They are permanent, appear natural, and require the same level of care as natural teeth. Unlike bridges, dental implants don’t require the alteration of additional teeth. Unlike dentures, they don’t slip, require any adhesives or suction, and won’t affect your ability to taste and enjoy food.
At Dental Excellence of Englewood, Dr. Alexei Mikerin performs the dental implant process through a surgical procedure, in which a screw is placed in the jaw bone. An implant is then inserted into the gum above the screw. Over a period of three to six months, the jaw bone naturally forms around the implant. During this time, temporary crowns enable patients to speak, eat and smile without difficulty. Following the complete implant healing process a tooth base, called an abutment, is used for the permanent restoration. At the end of the process, patients have a complete smile to truly call their own. Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or gaps from multiple tooth loss.
In some cases, a full dental implant cannot be used, but Dr. Mikerin has a solution for this. A mini implant can be used for narrow smile gaps, or for full upper or lower denture replacement, in which a series of mini implants are placed. Many mini dental implants patients require significantly less recovery time and a less invasive initial procedure.
Dr. Alexei Mikerin has helped many patients through the use of full dental implants and mini implants. They are just part of the complete implant, cosmetic, periodontal and pediatric dental specialties that are available through Dental Excellence of Englewood.
