Everybody deserves a beautiful smile. With the tremendous advances in esthetic dentistry, there’s no need to put up with anything less. We are proud to offer Nobel Biocare implants to help patients restore missing teeth by using permanent replacements. The bridge implant is a wonderful alternative to removable bridges.
Bridges use the teeth on either side of your missing tooth or teeth to provide support for the artificial teeth that fills in the space where your natural teeth are missing. The goal of the bridge is to restore chewing function and achieve an acceptable aesthetic outcome.
Dental implants performed by Dr. Horwitz & Dr. Dorfman provide a more advanced replacement for the missing teeth than a traditional bridge, and preserves adjacent teeth. Dental implants are small metal screws designed specifically to replace your natural tooth root. Manufactured from titanium, dental implants provide a highly biocompatible surface, encouraging bone to attach to the implant during the healing process to ensure long-term results.
Dental implants do not require the adjacent teeth to be modified. They also create stimulation to the underlying bone. Restoration with all-ceramic components (crown and abutment) can result in a beautiful, natural-looking, translucent tooth, just like the tooth being replaced!
