If you have missing teeth, dental implants can change your life. At Lucie Dental in Port St. Lucie, FL, Dr. Scott Azari offers high-tech implant treatment at competitive prices. Why are dental implants the most effective way to protect your oral and general health?
The Ultimate Solution for Tooth Loss
Dental implants are titanium screws that replace lost tooth roots. Dentists like Dr. Azari surgically insert implants directly into the jawbone. Over time, the titanium implants integrate with the bone tissue and become as secure as the roots of natural teeth. Once implants have fully fused with the jawbone, they are able to support crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Dental implants attach restorations directly to the jaw. This means that your denture should never come loose or slip out of place when you chew, laugh, or speak.
When a tooth is lost, the jawbone loses stimulation from the tooth root and begins to atrophy at that site. Only dental implants replicate the function of tooth roots and prevent jawbone atrophy.
Replacing a tooth with a traditional bridge requires substantial modification to the adjacent teeth. In contrast, replacing a tooth with a dental implant and a crown requires no modifications to your natural teeth.
Say Goodbye to Slipping
Are you fed up with dentures that slip and slide out of place? Tired of using bad-tasting denture adhesive? By attaching your denture to dental implants, you can say goodbye to these inconveniences. Dr. Azari offers a few different options for full-arch restoration: Are you fed up with dentures that slip and slide out of place? Tired of using bad-tasting denture adhesive? By attaching your denture to dental implants, you can say goodbye to these inconveniences.
For Full-Arch Restoration
The prices above include the cost of both the dentures and dental implants. To find out which restoration is right for you, and to learn more about our flexible payment options, schedule a free consultation with our dentist.
Dr. Azari discusses dental implants and implant candidacy. A dental implant is a screw that is inserted into the jaw and replaces missing tooth roots. These prosthetic tooth roots support restorations such as crowns, bridges, and dentures to restore a patient's oral function.
See If You Qualify
Our dentist Dr. Scott Azari can check your oral health and see if you meet the requirements for dental implant surgery. Most patients who have missing teeth will likely qualify for dental implants. Factors like the integrity of your jawbone tissue and the health of your gums will play a factor in your candidacy. During your initial consultation at Lucie Dental, our dentist can also review your implant options. If you're interested in dental implants but unsure if you qualify for treatment, contact our Port St. Lucie, FL, office today for a consultation. Call (772) 348-4409.
Some injuries can damage a tooth beyond repair. An extraction and dental implant placement would improve both the health and the aesthetics of your smile.
If a root canal is unsuccessful, an extraction might be your best option. Instead of leaving a gap in your smile, our dentist can attach a natural-looking restoration to the titanium implant with an abutment.
You can lose teeth due to aging, poor hygiene, trauma, and other factors. An implant-supported restoration can be customized for your smile and made to match the color of your teeth.
Unlike most general dentists, Dr. Azari can complete every stage of your dental implant treatment at his office in Port St. Lucie, FL.
State-of-the-art dental technology enables Dr. Azari to perform precise surgeries that result in excellent outcomes.

To qualify for dental implants Port St. Lucie patients need sufficient bone density in their jaw. Dr. Azari will use our state-of-the-art 3D CBCT scanner to analyze your jawbone. If he determines that your bone is too weak to support implants, he can schedule a bone grafting procedure at our Port St. Lucie office. Another candidacy factor is tobacco use. If you are a smoker, you will need to quit.
Dr. Azari will explain the different options available to you. This could include the number of implants, the placement of dental implants, and the quality of your dental restoration. If you require a full-arch restoration, he will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of removable dentures versus fixed dentures.
Dr. Azari will design a treatment plan for you and thoroughly explain the implant process step-by-step. He will take the time to answer all your questions and make sure you know exactly what to expect. At our practice in Port St. Lucie Dental implant treatment typically takes several months to complete and involves two or three separate procedures.
Our team will provide a quote for your dental implant treatment and explain your financial options.

Dental implants are screws that go in the jawbone and replace tooth roots. At our practice in Port St. Lucie Dental Implants we use are made of biocompatible titanium.
Abutments are tiny connector pieces that attach dental implants to restorations. Abutments are visible above the gumline when restorations are not attached.
Dental restorations are prosthetic teeth. The types of restorations are crowns, bridges, and dentures. We use restorations that look incredibly lifelike.
Whether you need to replace one tooth or all of your teeth, your chances of achieving satisfactory results increase exponentially when you choose a dentist who uses the latest technology. Dr. Azari uses cutting-edge equipment and techniques when planning and executing dental implant treatment, such as:
This modern imaging machine captures a complete 3D scan of your dental structures in seconds. Dr. Azari will use these precise models of your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine exactly where to place dental implants.
Dr. Azari performs computer-assisted dental implant surgery, ensuring that each implant ends up at precisely the right location and angle. The system virtually eliminates the chance of human error.
A Revolution In Full-Arch Replacement
The All-on-4 technique is one of the most exciting developments in dental care in recent years. Using this method, Dr. Azari can attach a high-quality denture to only four implants (instead of the traditional six or eight). All-on-4 involves placing dental implants at a strategic angle that maximizes available bone tissue. This means that patients with bone atrophy may not necessarily require preparatory bone grafting. Lucie Dental is proud to offer All-on-4 to qualifying patients for as low as $14,500. For more information, contact us today.

If you are experiencing any signs of infection during the recovery process, call Lucie Dental immediately.
Generally, patients with one or more missing teeth qualify for dental implants. However, there are some health conditions that may disqualify patients from treatment. Alternative solutions can be discussed if any oral or general health problems are present. Dr. Azari will look for these conditions when you visit our Port St. Lucie, FL, practice:
Periodontal disease can weaken your gums. If you have gum disease, our dentist can review treatment options to restore your gum health.
A minimum amount of jawbone tissue is needed to support dental implants. For patients who suffer from bone atrophy, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary before dental implant treatment.
Smoking hinders your body's ability to heal and may cause gum disease. Patients seeking dental implants should quit smoking altogether before treatment.
Pregnancy, uncontrolled diabetes, immune deficiency disorders, and other wellness issues can disqualify you from dental implant treatment.
