Dental Implants in Naples, FL
Are you missing teeth? Do you miss having healthy teeth? If so, you know first-hand the discomfort, both physical and emotional, that missing teeth can bring. You probably feel limited in what you can eat, and you might feel embarrassed by the changes in your speech and your face. You may also have experienced unfair judgments caused by the stigma that our society places on missing teeth.
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant has three main parts. We surgically place the implant itself into your jaw in the place of your missing tooth, and then we add a customized abutment. We finish your dental implant with a custom implant crown to complete your smile.
At Gulf Shore Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we are skilled in the art of oral surgery and can place dental implants right here in our Naples dental office with no need to refer you to a specialist.
Dr. Andrew Haidet is a Fellow at The Congress of Oral Implantology and received his training under Implant Diplomat Rick Ferguson. He has surgically placed and restored numerous dental implants and our patients are thrilled with their results.

Dental Implant Restoration
The roots of your teeth do more than just hold your teeth in place. They also stimulate the growth and development of healthy bone and gum tissue in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, changes begin to happen in your jaw and the tissue is no longer stimulated to maintain itself. While these changes may not seem noticeable right away, they will eventually begin to snowball, changing the shape of your face and causing you to lose additional teeth.
The titanium post of a dental implant that is placed in your jaw functions the same way as your natural tooth root, stopping the deterioration of your tissue and helping to keep and restore the health of your jaw. This not only prevents further loss of teeth, it also keeps you from experiencing the “sunken” appearance that often accompanies lost teeth.
