Implants is a great option. They've been around for about 35 years now, so they've evolved a lot over the years, but it's one of the best if not the best option to replace teeth. It allows you to basically put a manmade titanium root in, and then you can put a crown on it, and it looks and feels and brushes and everything just like a regular tooth, and a pretty much permanent solution that's 99 percent success rate. So implants, really, in my opinion are one of the best ways to replace teeth and also one of the best ways to secure loose dentures and partials. A lot of people suffer with that, so when we can put a couple of implants in to help support it, it really allows them to function and smile with more confidence.
Compared to other teeth replacements, implants offer many benefits:
- They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. This improves your social, psychological, and physical well-being.
- Since they replace your tooth roots, implants help maintain your jawbone’s shape and density.
- They support your facial framework and soft tissues. This means they preserve your face’s natural contours and improve your appearance.
- They stay in place without adhesive, so you can confidently eat whatever you’d like.
- In some cases, you can receive your implants and replacement teeth in a single appointment.
Our implant dentists, Dr. Anish Patel and Dr. Trae Pappas, have completed extensive continuing education and have years of clinical experience in placing and restoring implants. That means you can get your entire dental implants procedure, from start to finish, in our office. Dr. Pappas is even a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

Enjoy Many Tooth Replacement Options
We can mount a variety of dental restorations on dental implants or mini dental implants, depending on your need. At Panama City Smiles, we offer:
- Dental crowns to replace individual missing or damaged teeth.
- Dental bridges to fill the gaps left in your smile by multiple teeth.
- Implant-secured and implant-retained dentures to replace a full arch of teeth in the top or bottom of your mouth with just a few implants.
- Fixed full-mouth restorations using only four to six implants.
- Immediate implant placement after extractions, including a same-day smile procedure, in which we extract teeth, place implants, and attach a denture or overdenture in one appointment!
No matter the treatment, you will be able to speak clearly, smile beautifully, and chew without pain or discomfort.
An Implant Functions Like a Natural Tooth Root
A dental implant is simply a replacement tooth root, which we place into your jaw to form the base of a replacement tooth. Through a process called osseointegration, implants fuse with the jawbone, so they’ll never shift out of place.
Placing implants requires precision. We use state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging so each implant is placed exactly in the correct position. After a healing period, when the implant is fully integrated with your jaw, we’ll attach your beautiful dental restoration.
