Dental implants are a wonderful way for patients to restore their smile after tooth loss has occurred. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. When completed with a dental crown, they can look and function just as a natural tooth will. At Levenson Smile, dental implants are placed by Dr. Sarah Shih, a periodontal specialist, and are completed by Dr. Levenson. Patients in the Worcester area can speak with Dr. Levenson about the benefits of dental implants.
Dental implants serve two primary purposes: denture stabilization and tooth replacement.
Patients who have lost a natural tooth have a variety of options to choose. From dental bridges to partial dentures, patients will find that dental implants are the best option in many cases. Dental implants are stand-alone restorations that function and appear as natural teeth. They require no special care or attention, and are permanently in place. They can last a lifetime when properly maintained with daily brushing, flossing, and regular recall appointments with Dr. Levenson of Levenson Smile.
Many patients can use dental implants to stabilize a set of full dentures. In most cases, dentures rely on gravity, suction, and dental adhesives to stay in place. When integrated with dental implants, dentures can be held firmly in place with these restorations. While replacing an entire arch of teeth with dental implants can be costly, using a few implants to stabilize dentures is a much more affordable alternative.
Dr. Levenson of Levenson Smile can provide patients with tooth replacement and denture stabilization information. Worcester patients will enjoy having their dental needs addressed with a family friendly dentist that is specially trained in providing cosmetic and general dentistry.
