Implants

At Levy Dental, we have a group of specialists and doctors that work in coordinated efforts to bring you the best care in dental implant dentistry possible. Due to the close working relationships of our dentists, your dental care is optimized and your implant is planned and executed from start to finish all in the same facility. No more visiting multiple dental offices for your dental treatment!

An single-tooth implant is a prosthesis made of surgical titanium alloy (the same material that is used in joint replacement) and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. Simply, it is composed of two parts that mimic a tooth’s root and crown. Before the implant is even placed, collaborative planning is completed with the team, including the surgeon, the restoring dentists, and dental assistants.

The implant, which will act like the “root”, is placed by our periodontist, Dr. Wiener. The implant body is placed in the bone and will cannot be visualized or seen. After the implant heals and is accepted by the body (osseointegration), it is then ready to be restored by one of our restorative dentists by using a titanium abutment and a porcelain crown that will live above the gum-line.

If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth.

Implants may also be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. Plus, for patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile. These are called snap-on dentures.

Here at Levy Dental Group, we have the expertise and experience to help you with your dental implant needs. Our specialists and dentists have placed and restored hundreds of implants for our patients. We are confident we can give you the smile you need and deserve. Call us today!
