Filling The Gaps With Tooth Implant Services In White Plains

Tooth Implant Procedures For Westchester CountyActual tooth implant patient of Dr. Handschuh. His prosthesis is shown below.Are you wondering if implant dentistry is right for you?

It’s very common to lose permanent teeth. In fact, studies show that over 65% of adults over the age of 44 have lost one or more permanent teeth.

If you are one of these people who live in the Westchester County area, a tooth implant procedure with Dr. Handschuh may be right for you.

It’s important to remember that missing teeth can cause more than cosmetic problems. When left untreated, a missing tooth can lead to altered face shape (including sunken cheeks), bone loss, jaw joint problems, and it can also contribute to additional permanent teeth falling out.

These factors should be taken into consideration when deciding what type of tooth implant treatment you select for missing teeth (and how soon you pursue treatment).

If you are a good candidate for implant dentistry, dental implants are an attractive, secure, comfortable, and permanent solution to replace missing or badly damaged teeth.
