A Stronger Smile Through Dental Implants

A Stronger Smile Through Dental Implants

Did you know that tooth enamel is the strongest biological substance? In fact, tooth enamel is even stronger than steel – though much more brittle. Our smiles are much stronger than we think! However, if you’ve recently lost a tooth due to decay or trauma, you may be wondering what the best treatment is for you to regain that strong smile you’ve become used to. Though other restorative treatments can help to fill the gap in your smile, a tooth implant remains the best way to restore missing tooth roots, strengthen and preserve bone density, and create a firmer bite for a lifetime. Below, discover more reasons why Dr. Abraham Stein and Dr. Zachary Weiss choose dental implants as often as possible for a stronger smile restoration.

Read on to discover the many benefits of dental implants.

Decay-Free Restoration

Tooth implants are usually made of titanium or a titanium alloy and thus, do not decay like enamel. With an implant, you do not have to worry about tooth decay under the surface of your gums; while your remaining teeth may suffer future enamel wear or decay, your implant will continue to offer uncompromised support within your mouth and jaw. However, it’s still crucial to practice proper oral care, as periodontal disease or bone deterioration around the implant can still negatively affect your oral health.

Decreased Bone Loss

Bone deterioration in the jaw is a common issue after tooth loss. Dental implants mimic natural teeth roots and can help the jawbone function normally, rebuilding bone density and strength as it would have with a natural root. The risk for bone tissue atrophy is reduced when implants are placed soon after tooth loss occurs.

Incredible Aesthetics

Dental implants can maintain the natural shape of your smile and face. Patients without dental implants can experience shifting smiles or even a change in their appearance due to bone loss. Dental implants maintain your facial structure and offer a seamless, undetectable connection to your visible restoration (such as a dental crown).

Lasting Durability

Dental implants have been used and studied in dentistry for over 30 years with very positive results. For many patients who practice proper oral hygiene, dental implants can last their entire life.

Versatile Support

A variety of restorations can be affixed to dental implants, including a single dental crown, as well as  multiple-teeth restorations such as implant-supported bridges, dentures, and full mouth restorations, like All-on-4® treatments. Implants offer incomparable support for the restoration that fits your smile.

Improved Comfort

Since implants anchor restorations in in a similar way to natural tooth roots, patients usually find the results of treatment more comfortable. The support of an implant allows for a firmer bite and improved chewing capabilities over dental restorations which rest on top of the gums. With implants, slipping, sliding, or shifting restorations are no longer an issue.

Dr. Abraham E. Stein

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
