Are you suffering from tooth loss and want to find a great solution to replace your missing teeth? Today many of our patients are very excited about getting dental implants for just this reason. Dental implants are such a popular tooth loss solution because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to come to our practice, Dennis Block, we will be able to provide you with dental implants so that you will no longer have to deal with the problem of Ridgewood tooth loss.
At our dental practice, we are very happy to have several expert dentists available to help our patients with their Ridgewood tooth loss. One of our fine dentists is Dr. Block. He has been providing exemplary dental care since 1974. Dr. Block, as well as all of our dentists, are sure to stay up-to-date on the most current diagnostic and treatment methods. When a patient comes to us wanting dental implants, our dentist will first need to make sure that their jawbone is healthy and thick enough to hold the dental implants. Once this is determined to be the case, our dentist will surgically implant a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. This will be followed by a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will need to thoroughly heal and the titanium root will fuse to the jawbone.
Once our dentist has determined that the healing has completed, a beautiful porcelain crown will then be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. At this point, your dental implant is complete; you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort. The dental implant root will also help keep your jawbone healthy, as it will keep the jawbone from atrophying. This is important because not only will your jawbone retain its health, but it will also help your face maintain a more youthful look. If well taken care of, dental implants can easily last you a lifetime. In order to keep your dental implants in excellent condition, you will want to brush and floss regularly, and come to our dental practice for periodic teeth cleanings.
