Dr. Leibowitz is happy to discuss the role that dental implants can play in your plans to restore your complete smile. This approach to prosthetic dentistry helps patients by offering remarkable stability as well as important health benefits for your jawbone and surrounding teeth. In addition to providing information on restoration with implants, our practice can help you confirm that you are a good candidate for this service.
Implant dentistry provides patients with a means to permanently secure prosthetic appliances. The dental implant itself works to secure the replacement tooth to the jawbone. This arrangement imitates the kind of hold that the roots of our teeth offer. The presence of the implant also helps by stabilizing neighboring roots and creating stimulation in the jawbone that keeps it from losing mass over time, which can otherwise affect people after losing teeth.
Dr. Leibowitz can closely evaluate you to determine if implant dentistry is the right solution for you. If so, you can learn more about the processes for placement and restoration, and we can prepare you for the work that will give you back your complete smile.
If we identify concerns around implant treatment, we can talk with you about alternative options such as care with a dental bridge or denture. We can also review potential solutions to help you qualify for implant placement.
Through the restoration of dental implants with lifelike prostheses, patients gain cosmetic and oral health benefits. With this and other prosthetic treatment solutions, Dr. Leibowitz can help you gain back your complete smile and enjoy functional changes like better bite support.
