Replace Missing Teeth With Implant Dentistry
Dr. Frank and his staff at North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery place your oral health and satisfaction as their highest priority! When you have a missing tooth that is not replaced, the bone underneath your tooth will deteriorate over time. When this bone is gone, your oral health is at greater risk of disease and tooth loss and, with several missing teeth, the appearance of your jawline will change. Why put your health and appearance at risk when you can receive dental implants?
Dental implants preserve the bone resulting from tooth loss by replacing the root system and giving you a brand-new tooth! Not only do implants revive the look of your smile, but they also bring back the function that goes along with having all of your teeth. That means eating the foods that you desire without worrying about hurting any of your teeth or gums.
Your Dental Implant Options
At North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we want to cater to your personal preferences and personal situation by providing a variety of dental implant options. We offer traditional implants for multiple or single missing teeth, ReVita Smile® (All on 4), and mini dental implants. These choices are all excellent ways to replace missing teeth. When you visit Dr. Frank at North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, he will customize a plan to restore your confident smile by using the dental implant option that is best for you.
Formulating A Plan For Your Implant Procedure
Do you want a practice that is prepared when it’s time to perform your dental implant procedure? Dr. Frank has taken steps to make sure that he and his staff are ready for each implant surgery that they perform. This is made possible by state-of-the-art virtual planning software! There are two easy steps before beginning your virtual planning session. First, you will come in for a CT scan, pictures, and measurements. Second, molds will be taken of your teeth to create impressions and ensure the implants fit accurately. Badly damaged or decayed teeth that cannot be saved may be extracted in order to be replaced with implants.
Dr. Frank uses this computer-assisted planning because he is able to perform the surgery virtually to prepare him for what he may encounter during the real implant procedure. The virtual surgery helps predict what problems may arise, such as bones and nerves that may get in the way. This process allows for Dr. Frank to plan for adjustments that he may have to make, rather than being blindsided by a problem and having to make an adjustment while you’re in the chair.
Choose Dental Implants For A More Comfortable Life
Your oral health is directly linked to your overall health, which is why it is very important to replace missing teeth with implants. Your quality of life will improve the moment the implants are placed because of the comfort they provide and the limitations that they eliminate. Make the choice to have a dental implant procedure, because your health depends on it.
