At Levenson Smile, our team of professionals provide patients in the Worcester area with a wide selection of services that can meet their dental needs. We know that the smile should be “unforgettable” and look its best. Dental treatment not only improve the health of the smile, but the appearance, and with cosmetic dentistry options available, Dr. Stanley Levenson can help patients achieve both.
Restoring the smile is a common request from patients who have experienced tooth loss from disease, extraction, or trauma. The loss of a natural tooth can impact one’s life with poor speaking and chewing abilities, as well as a lack of confidence over their appearance. When individuals in the Worcester area are interested in achieving a more beautiful smile after tooth loss, Dr. Stanley Levenson can assist.
When patients are faced with tooth loss, they often ask about restorations such as dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts which Dr. Stanley Levenson installs into the jaw of the bone during oral surgery and restores over the top with a dental crown, bridge, or a denture—depending on the needs of the patient. These versatile restorations are considered the “gold standard” in smile repair because they can last a lifetime with proper maintenance. Dr. Stanley Levenson finds that patients who have enough bone structure in their jaw are able to enjoy the benefits of dental implants. However, those who have experienced bone loss may not be a good fit for these restorations. This is where the placement of mini dental implants can come into place.
Mini dental implants are shorter in length and smaller in diameter than traditional dental implants and should be considered for patients who do not want to undergo bone grafting to prepare the smile for implants or for those who want to achieve a tooth replacement option with the bone structure they currently have. Mini dental implants can be placed in areas that more traditional dental implants cannot, so it should be considered in certain circumstances as an alternative solution.
Dr. Stanley Levenson and his team of professionals welcome patients in the Worcester area who are interested in achieving a more attractive smile when tooth loss occurs. Mini dental implants may be a viable choice for patients who are not appropriate candidates for more traditional means of replacement and should not be overlooked as an option.
