I have been going to Dr Stern for at least 10 years and have to say he treats his patients like royalty! It has always been a pleasurable experience and he has the latest and greatest technology for various procedures. Going to the dentist needs to be a great experience and I'd consider going here a must! It's always a bonus when you get a perfect report on your teeth too:)

Dr. Stern

I want to commend you and your staff for taking care of me during what could have been some very rough days. After contacting your office on a Sunday after experiencing a significant break in a tooth, I was impressed to hear back from you personally within 15 minutes, and to be contacted shortly after that by your office assistant, to schedule me for an appointment the very next day. Both my treatment, with a dental crown, and the follow up were convenient and quick, which I greatly appreciated. Your cordial, well-trained staff, along with you, and your knowledge, quality, and refreshing brand of no-nonsense, no-pain dentistry were just what the doctor ordered. Since you have become my dentist, and coming from a family of dentists, I have learned to trust and admire your ability to diagnose, and offer solutions, that keep my mouth healthy and smiling. Hope to see you, but not too soon.

The way in which we address missing teeth has evolved greatly in recent decades. Today, many people replace lost teeth with dental implants, cylinders of titanium that are placed directly into healthy jawbone. Implants may replace solitary teeth, saving the need for bridgework, or they may be used in conjunction with a denture appliance for ultimate stability.

There are several advantages to this tooth replacement treatment, making it appealing in a number of situations. Implants are prosthetics anchored within the jawbone. There is nothing more stable other than the natural tooth structure and root. When a tooth is lost, standard therapies address the structure that was lost above the gums. To replace a single tooth, a dental bridge is fitted to two natural teeth, with an artificial tooth positioned in between. This artificial tooth sits on top of the gums. Likewise, removable denture appliances are crafted to form to existing gum and bone structure, relying on suction and adhesives for stability.




Dental Implants Willoughby Hills - Dental Implant in photo Dr. Stern works with reputable implant specialists in the area of Willoughby Hills to restore smiles to their most natural state following the loss of teeth. Our colleagues will discuss the available options, and help you determine if titanium or zirconium implants are most suitable to your needs. Implants have been extensively researched, with original patients reporting ongoing success after more than forty years. The dental implant process begins with the insertion of the implant or implants as recommended by your oral surgeon, collaborating with Dr. Stern. After placement, bone tissue fuses around the implant post. Within a few months, this structure will be healed and you return to our office for the placement of a dental crown or denture appliance. In some cases, temporary restorations are placed for an attractive appearance as well as restored chewing function.


One of the greatest benefits of dental implants over other tooth-replacement procedures is that we are able to address the needs of the jawbone. Without an active root system, bone tissue breaks down over time. This is why many people who have worn conventional, poorly fitting dentures begin to look older than they are. When bone tissue resorbs into the body, facial structure loses support and the lips and cheeks look sunken. Because implants provide consistent stimulation to bone tissue, this supportive structure is preserved.

If you are investigating your options for tooth replacement, contact Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills for your consultation with Dr. Stern.
