Cheeks and lips need support from the teeth to maintain their youthful appearance. The lower third of the face retreats. Cheeks become hollow. These changes can make patients look older than they really are.
Bone loss can negatively affect every aspect of life. Chewing foods becomes challenging. Nutrition suffers. Some words may become difficult to pronounce correctly.
HOW CAN BONE LOSS BE PREVENTED IN ONE VISIT?
As few as four implants can support a full upper or lower arch. Since a maximum number of teeth may be supported with a minimum number of implants, it is easier than ever before to replace missing teeth in just one visit.
Dr. Levenson starts by determining factors such as:
Length of new teeth
"Bite" (how the upper and lower teeth come together)
Necessary structural support from the lips, face
Three-dimensional pictures of the sinuses, nerves, and bone are rendered to help Dr. Levenson properly position the new teeth. Modern computer simulations allow Levenson Smile to "virtually" place the implants in the jawbone before any tissues are touched.
After remaining unhealthy teeth are extracted (as needed), the dental implants are precisely placed using information collected during examination ,
diagnostics, and planning.
Unlike traditional dentures and tooth replacement options, patients don't have to be toothless while waiting for the implants to fuse with underlying
bone. An abutment connects temporary crowns to dental implants for proper healing, as well as to protect tissues.
Dr. Levenson and his team will provide instructions on home care. After the natural process of osseointegration is complete (often in around three months), patients will receive durable and dazzling teeth designed for the long haul. They are, designed like natural teeth – from the root up!
