At Magid Dental Care, we design preventive treatment plans to help our patients retain their natural teeth whenever possible. This is the easiest and most affordable way to protect your oral health.
Deep decay, infection, and periodontal disease can all put your health at risk. Life can also come at you – or at your teeth – quickly, and you may experience irreparable trauma from an accident or sport and require an extraction.
We never take tooth removal lightly. We know it can cause you stress regarding your health and appearance. When tooth removal is necessary, Dr. David Magid will explain all your treatment options to replace your missing tooth.
One of the most effective ways to protect your health following tooth loss is a dental implant. You have probably heard about dental implants and the benefits they provide when it comes to your smile. Dental implants allow us to conservatively replace missing teeth without the need to remove healthy tooth structure.
The design of dental implants is meant to mimic your natural teeth all the way to the root. Unlike bridges or partial dentures, dental implants integrate naturally with your body in a process called osseointegration.
Because we place the dental implant surgically into your bone and the metal is made of biocompatible titanium, it will actually fuse with your natural bone. This creates greater stability and reduces bone loss.
Dental implants are a great investment in your oral health. Since implants can last many years, you probably want them to look natural and complement your smile. We create custom dental crowns to match your existing teeth in size, shape, and shade so your smile appears seamless.
If you have a strong bite or suffer from bruxism (a clenching and grinding habit), you may need to wear a nightguard to protect your dental implant and your other dentistry. Porcelain crowns may suffer from wear and tear from a nocturnal grinding habit.
For multiple missing teeth, you may find that implant-supported bridges and crowns offer added stability while completing your chewing surface and smile.
Implant-supported bridges – The implant bridge allows for the replacement of multiple missing teeth while providing stability and bone-retention. By adding dental implants to your bridge, you can replace multiple missing teeth and avoid a partial denture.
Implant-supported dentures – One of the greatest challenges that comes from dentures is a good fit. A few dental implants can hold your denture in place and give you greater confidence while eating and speaking.
