Tooth loss creates more than an unattractive appearance; it creates a situation for other teeth to shift resulting in gum disease, tooth decay, further tooth loss and TMJ problems.
Dr. Mitchell A. Pohl, a Boca Raton dental implant dentist, can help.
You may be a candidate for dental implants in Boca Raton if you:
- Are missing one or more teeth
- Have good general dental health
- Have adequate bone density or are willing to undergo grafts to build up the tissue
- Are interested in a permanent solution to tooth loss
Boca Raton Dental Implants
Dr. Mitchell A. Pohl, a Boca Raton implant dentist, uses the NobelActive Implant systems, the world’s most advanced dental implant.
A Boca Raton dental implant is made out of a special medical-grade titanium that is compatible fuse with the bone. During the bone-healing process known as osseointegration, the implant becomes solidly anchored, allowing for restoration. This process can take several months, during which a temporary restoration can be used to close the gap while you wait for your permanent restoration.
Good dental hygiene is not only important in taking care of your teeth, but can help the implant site heal and ensure long-lasting results. Brush twice a day or after meals, floss every day, and visit us for checkups as recommended.

Implant Dentistry in Boca Raton
Do you want a brilliant, natural-looking smile without the hassle or potential discomfort of removable dentures? With implant dentistry, you can once again enjoy the beauty and functionality of healthy teeth.
At Boca Raton Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Pohl has a wealth of experience crafting exceptional smiles.
Dental implants are fast becoming the standard of care. Placement of dental implants helps prevent deterioration of the jawbone, which occurs when the natural teeth are lost.
Our standard of treatment for a single missing tooth is an implant and implant-supported crown. Dental implants in Boca Raton are actually more conservative and tooth-saving than traditional bridgework.
Implant supported overdentures are the treatment of choice when all teeth are missing. The benefits of this procedure means increased chewing function, comfort, and better health and wellness of the patient.
When multiple teeth are missing, implant supported bridgework is our standard of treatment. In the long-term, implant bridgework is the best choice, providing comfort and a more natural look, function and feel to the entire mouth.
