Avi B. Gibberman, DDS, specializes in planning for, and restoration of, dental implants. Dental implants are used to treat patients who are missing teeth and are seeking a permanent solution that will greatly improve their oral health.
Why Get Dental Implants?
Dental implants are beneficial in many ways beyond convenience and appearance. When teeth are missing, bone loss within the jaw naturally occurs due to lack of stimulation from your natural tooth root. Dental implants help to prevent this from happening with the placement an artificial root. Dental implants are a permanent solution for teeth replacement that also helps to preserve the alignment of your teeth and chewing function.
From a lifestyle perspective, dental implants remain stable in your mouth, unlike removable dentures, which can slip and slur your speech. Dentures can also block your palate and restrict dietary choices – issues that are eliminated with dental implants. Dental implants can restore and enhance your appearance and natural biting and chewing function, making them an excellent choice for anyone with missing teeth.
