Toledo Dentist replaces what is missing! Dr. Jonathan Frankel shares information on Dental Implants.
At Frankel Dentistry, we find it is very important to educate patients with the latest and greatest dental procedures. Dental Implants are a great solution for patients who have lost teeth. Missing teeth can lead to gum disease, bone loss, and the risk of losing more teeth. Dr. Frankel and team are here to help educate our community about their dental options.
What are dental implants? Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw. These metal roots hold the replacement tooth.
What are the advantages of dental implants? Having a full set of teeth can help improve appearance, self esteem, speech and make eating easier and enjoyable.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants? Schedule an appointment for a free consultation to discuss what is best for you. We’d be happy to talk over your options so you can have your best smile.
What are my next steps? At Frankel Dentistry, we take a 3D scan to evaluate the area. Then the staff virtually places the implant in the image. Another scan is taken and sent to Germany where a guide is made. The guide allows the implant to be quickly and precisely place. The bone will fuse to the implant, creating a secure foundation for your new tooth. Healing times may vary, but once this process is complete, a permanent crown will be placed on the implant or a denture will be secured and anchored by strategically placed implant posts.
