Implants have revolutionized the field of dentistry. Implants are nickel titanium fixtures which act as an artificial root for support of a crown, bridge or even complete denture. Implants allow for eight times greater chewing strength and force than that of a bridge pontic or denture tooth. Implants allow for no cutting of adjacent teeth, and aid in keeping your natural bone level healthy due to biting pressure, avoiding indentation of your cheeks, while keeping your lips full. Your body treats it like a tooth. Once the implant is placed, a one month and three month observation appointment will take place to ensure stability of the implant. An impression is then taken, and a very esthetic porcelain crown is cemented on the implant.
We only offer digital radiography, which exposes our patients to four times less radiation than normal x-rays. They also develop in less than five seconds, so there's little patient waiting time. Our fully electronic charting allows for printing and reprinting of x-rays for our patients free of charge. In addition, we have a Schick intraoral camera which provides pictures and videos inside the mouth and even the tooth. Photographs can be used as an educational tool for our more curious patients.
At Healthy Smiles, we offer all traditional denture options as well as lucitone partial dentures which show no metal, are flexible-based, and highly cosmetic. In addition to this, we offer snap-on implant supported complete dentures as well as hybrid dentures which remain permanently cemented to an implant base. These dentures offer absolute stability and eight times the chewing force of regular complete dentures.
