    Learn How Dentures Can Help You

    Is your smile missing some teeth? Are you looking forward to chewing again on your favorite foods?  Dentures may be right for you! Modern dentures look and fell like real teeth. Dentures replace missing teeth with prosthetics and restore your original smile.

    Patients may receive full dentures, partial dentures or implant dentures. Full models replace all of the teeth on your upper and lower arch.  On the other hand, partial dentures work in tandem with your remaining teeth to fill in the gaps in your mouth. Finally, implant-supported dentures use titanium posts that are placed in your mouth. these lock denture into place, giving you a permanent and secure solution.

    Enjoy that apple! The top benefits of dentures include: improved ability to eat and fewer diet restrictions, improved speech and increased self-confidence with a healthy smile.

    Dentures are easy to care for – they can be removed for cleaning and brushing. It’s best to have your dentures checked at your annual exams as most dentures last five to ten years.

    It is important to talk to the Frankel Dentistry staff about all of your dentures options and have all of your questions answered.

    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.

  4. Three Top Reasons


    Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

    Looking Great!

    Looking Great!

    Save supporting bone.

    Once a tooth is lost the supporting bone begins to melt away. Dental Implants not only replace missing teeth and allow one to chew well and speak clearly; they keep the jaw bone solid.

    Save face.

    Replacing missing teeth with dental implants keeps your smile youthful. Lost teeth can lead to sunken cheeks and down-turned smiles. Implants leave you smiling.

    Save time.

    Dental implants are a proven long term replacement for missing teeth. There is a 97 percent success rate. They are easy to maintain. You brush and floss an implant just as you would your natural teeth. Dental bridges replace missing teeth but are more of a challenge to keep clean and often need to be replaced after ten to twenty years.
