Dentist in Savannah
Dr. Berwitz is pleased to offer dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. In some cases, dental implants may be used to secure partial or complete dentures or dental bridges.
Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. The titanium implant is placed into the jaw by our doctor. Once fused with natural bone, the crown (false tooth) is secured on the implant. Since it takes about 3-6 months for the implant to fully heal and be ready for the permanent crown, a temporary crown can be installed, allowing normal appearance and function during this time.
Implants have the same dependable foundation as natural tooth roots. With placed implants, you will no longer experience discomfort in chewing, laughing, or speaking. Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. More advantages of dental implants include:
Improved oral health – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
Improved speech – With a removable device like dentures, teeth can slip within the mouth and can cause you to slur or mumble your words. A dental implant allows you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Improved comfort – Dental implants remove the discomfort of removable dentures.
Easier to eat – Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat foods without pain.
Durability – With proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
There are many factors that Dr. Berwitz will consider prior to recommending a dental implant, including: adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, overall health, and sinus and nerve location.
