Remember when you were a small child and you lost your baby teeth in happy anticipation of a visit from the Tooth Fairy? As an adult, if you are missing one or more of your teeth, it is unlikely you are smiling.
As adults we can lose teeth because of gum disease, infection or decay as a result of a lifetime of poor dental habits. Teeth can also be lost by trauma or athletic injury. Occasionally, teeth are absent at birth.
At Lerner & Lemongello, we we want to put that smile back on your face!
Dental implants are a revolutionary solution to:
• Old crowns or bridges that need to be replaced due to pain or bad breath.
• Loose and slipping dentures which are embarrassing and make it difficult to eat and painful to smile.
• Missing teeth which can affect your personal relationships and the quality of your life.
Let us provide you with a permanent, long-term solution that can help restore your self-confidence and put your worries about your missing teeth to rest.
WHAT IS AN IMPLANT AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
A dental implant begins with a titanium or zirconia post that functions like the root of your tooth. The post is surgically positioned in your jawbone beneath the gum line. It fuses with your bone and the post becomes a sturdy foundation for your custom-made crown.
Remember: implants can’t come loose like dentures can and they don’t have to be anchored to other teeth like bridges!
SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION…WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU!
At your consultation, we will examine your teeth, take x-rays and determine if you have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone it too thin or soft, you may require a bone graft.
You must also be in good, general health.
Implants feel, look and function just like real teeth…but they do not decay! You must take good care of them, however, by flossing and brushing and visiting our office regularly.
