Are you suffering from gaps in your smile due to missing teeth? Teeth can be lost more often than many of us realize, until we become a victim of the problem ourselves. However, these gaps in your smile are more than just an unsightly cosmetic problem. Missing teeth present a serious risk to the continued health and longevity of your surrounding teeth, and as such need to be treated as soon as possible before the damage spreads. Fortunately, the latest advances in dental health care and technology have made smile restoration more effective than ever before. You can find the care you need to smile with confidence again with dental implants from your oral surgeon in Midwood at the state of the art practice of Marc B. Hertz, DDS, PC.
Dental implants are the number one method of smile restoration today. Only dental implants can provide a permanent solution treating your smile that does not harm any of your remaining teeth. The first step to dental implant treatment is an appointment for a consultation with your trusted oral surgeon in Midwood. During this visit, your doctor can answer all of your personal and medical questions about how dental implants work, and whether or not this treatment is right for you. Dental implants require a minimum of jaw bone density in order to be properly supported. As such, your consultation includes state of the art digital dental x-rays and computerized imaging technology to insure that your implants are the perfect fit for your smile.
Once your smile is approved and your treatment has been personally and carefully planned, your procedure begins in two steps. The first step is to place the base of your implant inside your mouth. Your professional oral surgeon implants a titanium post directly into the bone of your jaw. A healing period of four to six months is then allotted in order for the jaw bone to grow around the post just as it would the roots of your own teeth for an artificial tooth that can truly be used and cared for just as you would your one. Once the healing process is complete, the post is fitted with a metal abutment which is topped with a custom made porcelain crown crafted to perfectly recreate the look of your missing tooth.
