Nothing can take the place of a healthy set of natural teeth. But when disease or an accident ends in tooth loss, it's good to know that there are options for restoring your smile. You may want to choose dental implants if you:
Many patients choose implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth, or to support a full set of dentures. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth. They are made of titanium (a strong, lightweight metal) and other materials that are accepted by the human body.
Implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. The development and use of implants has been one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. U.S. dentists place more than 5.5 million implants annually. Before development of dental implants, dentures and bridgework were the only ways to replace missing teeth. But now, thanks to modern technology, Dr. Levey's patients enjoy implants that are so well-designed, they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implant retained teeth also have the added benefit of not being subject to cavities or staining (due to coffee, red wine, tea, colas,etc.) as occurs with natural teeth.
As with all the procedure offered in his practice, Dr. Levey always takes your time and comfort into consideration and always tells you what he is planning to do every step of the way. Every person's situation is unique, and Dr. Levey will give you the personal attention that you deserve to customize your tooth replacement options. Dental implants are the most natural long term tooth replacement option available.
Beautiful teeth that look good, feel good, and last a very long time......after all, that is what we all want.
