Choosing the Right Dentist for your Dental Implant needs.

all-on-4-dental-implants-las-vegas-lrg

In this 2 part series we will explore some important considerations when choosing a dentist that is right for you and your Dental Implant Needs.

Choosing the right dentist to place and restore your dental implants is an important decision.  It can mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems.  Decisions about your dental health should be taken very seriously.  In today’s world we are faced with many choices.  Should you choose a dentist by the advertisements you see on TV or in your local newspaper?  Some of these can be very convincing.  Making a decision as serious as this requires research into these “Implant Centers”.   It may not be as clear a choice, as it seems.  Be sure to carefully investigate the Implant Center or Dentist you choose to determine if it is the right choice for you.

One Size Does Not Fit All.

When choosing the right implant dentist for your needs “one size does not fit all”.  Implant dentistry has become big business with chains popping up nationwide.  This type of facility might be fine for eyeglasses or clothing chains but may not be right for your dental implant needs.  One-size implant systems and one type of implant treatment may not be what are best for you.  Each person is unique and so is their situation when it comes to implant dentistry.   Not everyone needs all their teeth removed and replaced with an implant denture such as “All on 4” or “Teeth in a Day”.  This may be right for you but perhaps there are other options that need to be considered.

One “size” or “type” of dental implant also does not work best in every situation.  You wouldn’t expect to use the same implant size and type to replace a back tooth as you would a front tooth?  The type of bone and the position in the mouth need to be carefully considered when choosing the right implant for the situation.  Also, the techniques required to beautifully blend an implant tooth in your smile with your natural teeth is much more challenging than replacing a back tooth.  This type of treatment requires additional skills and knowledge of implant dentistry.

You get what you pay for.

When choosing the right implant dentist for your needs “you get what you pay for”.  You have seen the advertisements on TV offering dental implants at a cost that just seems to good to be true.  Well in dentistry, just like everything else in life, if it sounds to good to be true it usually is.  This is especially true when considering your dental health.  All dental implants are not created equal.  Dental implant manufacturing companies have grown tremendously over the last few years.  The goal being to provide dental implants based on cost rather than quality.  That could mean cheaper materials being used or manufacturing techniques that are not as strictly regulated for quality.  This could mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems.

The right choice.

When choosing a dentist for your dental implant needs there are many things to consider.   In the second part of this series we will explore how to make the right choice when it come to your dental health and dental implant needs..

Dental Implants. What are my options? Part 2

In the second part of this three part series we will discuss options to replace multiple missing teeth with dental implants.

The popularity of dental implants has increased in recent years.  This is due to their ability to restore oral health but also provide a beautiful natural smile that is permanent.   Getting to know what implant procedure is right for you can change and improve your life.

Multiple teeth

Similar to the loss of one tooth, multiple teeth can be lost due to accident, decay or periodontal disease.  Multiple tooth replacement with dental implants is an ideal way to restore dental health.  Treatment with multiple implants is a option for those in the beginning stages of  tooth loss.  As we age we face the loss of multiple teeth even with good dental care.  Multiple missing teeth can be detrimental to your health as well as how you look and feel about yourself.  Replacing missing teeth is crucial to maintaining the rest of your oral health and slowing the process of losing additional teeth.  Fortunately there are many options available to replace multiple missing teeth.  Treatment may be as simple as placing implants in the site of  some of the missing teeth and placing a permanent bridge that is cemented to the implants.  This type of treatment works well for replacing as few as three teeth or replacing all the teeth.  It provides a predictable long term result giving you the look and feel of natural teeth and a beautiful smile.

Dental implants have the highest success rate of any tooth-replacement option and a successful history spanning decades, making them the best long-term solution to replace missing teeth.  Implants can last the rest of your life when properly cared for.   This is what makes them such a good value.

Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in Palm Beach Gardens.

Missing teeth have long been replaced with fixed bridges or dentures.  However, more recently there has been a trend towards replacing missing teeth with dental implants which are a more comfortable and permanent solution. Implants, when placed and restored by an experienced dentist will look and feel like your own natural teeth and be virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.

Tooth loss can occur for a number of reasons including neglecting your teeth and gums with poor diet and poor hygiene.  It can occur naturally from age and also due to trauma.  The loss of teeth can have a significant impact on a person’s self esteem due to the esthetic implications as well as causing bite problems and difficulties in eating.

A major advantage of dental implants is that they do not require preparation or drilling of neighboring healthy teeth and they do not require special brushes and extra care for oral hygiene. When teeth are lost bone loss of the jaw occurs after some time and dental implants slow this process down and prevent excessive loss of your bone structure.

Dental implants are one of the most successful ways to replace missing teeth and have a very high success rate. How long they last will depend on a number of factors including the skill of your dentist, the surgeon and how well you look after the health of your teeth and gums once complete.  Dr. Lerner and Dr. Lemongello and our office staff have the skill and expertice all in a 5 star environment to meet the needs of their patients.

My Lower Dentures are Loose! | Palm Beach Gardens, FL

Dentures-300x143One of the major complaints we receive with dentures are that they are not stable enough to enable normal eating habits and biting. They can also cause irritation of the gums and soreness from movement. However, there are a number of solutions for this.

Dentures can be strongly secured into place with dental implants giving patients the confidence and comfort of being able to eat what they want. How many implants needed is dependent on what result you want to achieve. With the simple placement of 2 implants dentures can be secured. Naturally, the more implants used the more secure a denture will become. Use enough implants and you don’t need dentures anymore.

Why do I need a Temporary Crown for my Implant

Recently one of our doctors was asked why it is necessary to have a temporary crown made for an implant?  This is a good question.  The reason a temporary is necessary, especially with a front tooth, is the role the implant temporary plays in healing.  When an implant temporary is placed it helps guide the gum tissue to grow around the implant in a natural way.  It also provides a foundation to support the gum so it doesn’t collapse and loose its shape.  Without a temporary a space can develop around the implant tooth leaving a gap between the teeth making the tooth look unnatural.  Our goal is to provide the most natural restoration possible.
