Dr. LoVerdi can restore a single tooth or multiple teeth using a dental implant. A dental implant utilizes an artificial root made from surgical-grade titanium that Dr. LoVerdi places in your mouth. Your jawbone bonds to the artificial root, creating a secure foundation for the attachment of a natural-looking porcelain crown or a bridge that is custom created for you. Some of the biggest advantages of implants are that they are more similar to your natural teeth; adjacent teeth do not have to be involved in the procedure; and, implants help prevent shrinkage of your jawbone that can occur from tooth loss. Implants can be used to replace missing teeth in the back of the mouth, as well as in the front. Few dentists actually perform both the artificial root placement and the porcelain restoration, but Dr. LoVerdi is an expert in both procedures, giving him a greater level of precision in restoring your smile, while also offering you a more convenient treatment schedule.

A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry and can be used to restore a single tooth or several teeth. Dental implants involve the placement of a surgical grade titanium post placed directly into your jawbone by Dr. LoVerdi. As the bone bonds to the post, it forms a secure foundation for the attachment of a crown or a prosthetic tooth that is custom created for you. Implants are sometimes used instead of bridges to maintain the integrity of the teeth on either side of the gap.
Q: What are my options for replacing a missing tooth?
A: By replacing missing teeth with either a bridge or an implant, you will alleviate the problems associated with missing a tooth and will restore your smile to its beautiful, full appearance. A bridge is one solution for replacing a tooth. By using neighboring teeth as the supportive structure, Dr. LoVerdi places a porcelain restoration into the vacant space, restoring the functionality and look of your smile. A dental implant is also an excellent solution. Dental implants involve the placement of a titanium post directly into the jawbone. Once the post has bonded to the bone, it can act as a new, solid support for a natural looking, porcelain restoration. Implants can replace a single tooth or an entire set of teeth, offering more function and permanence than traditional dentures.
While typical dentures shift and require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures.
