A Leap Forward in Dental Healing
by Dr. Jeffrey Etess
Replacing Natural Teeth When Necessary
There are more than 100 million people in the United States missing at least one tooth. Teeth rely on each other for bite support. Losing or missing just one tooth does have dental consequences, both functionally and aesthetically. “There is NOTHING better than your own natural teeth,” says Dr. Jefferey Etess. “It is always my main focus to safeguard my patients’ natural teeth for them as long as possible.”
Dental implants are the best solution to match the appearance and functionality of your natural teeth when replacement in necessary. Dental implants can help restore your mouth functionally, so well that no one will even know you were missing any teeth; all that is left is your glowing smile.
Dental implants are securely attached into your jawbone, which allows you to smile, eat, speak clearly, regain oral comfort and avoid the embarrassment of an unattractive smile. They can help improve your health by allowing for proper nutrition because you no longer must avoid certain foods. Proper overall facial appearance can be achieved with dental implants by balancing your facial dimensions and symmetry. Working with top facial plastic surgeons, Dr. Etess provides the dental face lift component to the face, often eliminating the need for any facial plastic surgery.
Dr. Etess and his team at Integrative Dental Specialist pride themselves on delivering the highest level of dental expertise, performed methodically with great skill and accuracy and without sacrifice. Far too often, patients are told by another dentist they are not a candidate for implants because they do not have enough bone. Fortunately, our practice has the technology to harvest your OWN living bone for self-bone grafts along with utilizing platelet rich fibrin (PRF) from your blood to allow for the correct placement and type of dental implant specifically for you.
Not all dental implants are the same. There are many different brands, styles and materials from which they are made, and what is good for one person may not work on another person. We offer traditional, zirconia and the hybrid dental implant, blending the best of both worlds, to give our patients the flexibility to make the best dental implant choice for their needs. Dr. Etess provides all facets of dental implantology, from single tooth replacement to full arch reconstruction.
