With our Midwood implants, you can forget about the limitations that are associated with more traditional dental restorations, namely bridges and dentures. You can have the option that has undeniable advantages, both cosmetically and practically. With empty space where you used to have a tooth, your other teeth on that jaw can shift, leading to discomfort and possibly misaligned jaws. If your back tooth is missing, your chewing will be less efficient, and this can potentially interfere with proper digestion.
About 98% of dental implants are successful, which is an impressive number, so you know that it’s effective. Our Midwood implants look and feel like real teeth. In fact, they even function like them. You can chew, even hard and tough foods; speak, laugh, brush it, floss between it and your other teeth. You can do it all with total confidence. Unlike with a fixed bridge, your other teeth will remain unaffected by the placement of an implant. And you won’t have to contend with messy and unreliable dental adhesive, as you would with removable dentures.
To get our Midwood implants, you should make an appointment for an exam and consultation, during which Dr. Hertz will evaluate you to determine if you’re a good candidate. Your gums should be basically healthy and your jaw bone will need to be tested to find out if it’s strong and thick enough to hold the implant properly. Once you are ready and deemed qualified, the first stage is to place a titanium post in your jaw. This is oral surgery, so you only want a qualified and skilled dentist like. Dr. Hertz to do it. Over several months (about 3 to 6), your jaw bone will grow around the post and fuse with it. A small healing collar is then placed as the second stage.
The final stage to getting our Midwood implants is the creation of a tooth-colored crown to be put on top of the post and cemented to it. You will then have a complete smile once again. With proper care, a dental implant can last for a long time, maybe even for life.
