Patients in the Willoughby Hills area who are dealing with tooth loss caused by trauma, aging, or extraction may want to speak to Dr. Michael Stern to learn about the ways in which they can restore the function and beauty of their smiles. While dentures and bridges are a common solution for many patients, dental implants are also a method of repair that is often considered by patients looking for a long-term option.
Dental implants are considered by patients who visit Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills. This is because Dr. Michael Stern is an implant specialist who can ensure the procedure is successful for patients who are proper candidates. Dental implants do require patients to have sufficient bone structure for placement to ensure longevity and proper function.
Dental implants are posts made of titanium that are placed during oral surgery with an implant specialist. Patients are evaluated with several diagnostics, including x-rays, which determine if there is enough bone for successful implant placement. Implants can also stimulate bone growth during a process called osseointegration. This is why many patients consider dental implants—to maintain bone as dentures and dental bridges cannot achieve this.
An implant specialist works with patients to help them decide if dental implants are right for them. If not, other solutions can be considered including dental bridges and dentures. Partial and full dentures may be used for patients who want an economical, removable solution, while dental bridges are typically used for those who want a permanent solution without the expense of dental implants. Patients who visit Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills are educated by our dental team about each alternative to find the one right for them.
