  1. Frankel Dentistry specializes in general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. While Cosmetic Dentistry is one of Dr. Frankel’s passions he also highlights the importance of Restorative Dentistry and the impact it makes on thousands of people each year. Same Day Fixed Implant Dentures fall into this category and at Frankel Dentistry we have changed the lives with this procedure.

    Partial edentulism affects a large majority of adults in America. Over 33 million individuals have dentures. Dentures replace missing teeth with prosthetics and restore the size and shape of the original smile. An Implant Denture is a set of prosthetics supported by a titanium post placed in the patient’s mouth. Implant dentures offer convenience, natural function, natural looking smile, and longevity. Fixed implants preserve the bone and maintain facial features, patients are able to talk, chew, and smile just as before with their natural teeth. Only your dental professional will be able to detect your dentures. If you maintain proper care and stay up to date with you recare appointments your implant dentures can last a lifetime.

  2. Ready to Retire?

    Don’t Forget your teeth.

    There is a lot of planning that goes into getting ready to retire. You are constantly calculating your expenses, counting the dollars and planning the next phase of your life.

    One expense that may be overlooked is dental expenses and benefits. If you plan to use Medicare for your coverage, you would want to look at a separate dental plan. Traditional Medicare does not cover dental care. If you have retiree health care from your employer, make sure to ask if the plan covers dental care.

    Without having a dental insurance plan, patients tend to go to the dentist less often to try to save money. In fact, the less you go to the dentist for routine exams could mean bigger bills later. As you age , it’s critical to keep preventative care visits. These routine visits uncover small issues before they become big problems.  Untreated dental issues may turn into complications that affect other health conditions.
