Dr. James C. Lewis continues his quest to provide the most up-to-date dental facility in New Port Richey, Florida.
NEW PORT RICHEY, FL, September 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The image of a full mouth of dentures floating in a cup of cleanser on a nightstand is no stranger to Americans. Denture hand puppets and people losing their teeth are regular gags in pop culture. That image may change soon, as dental implantation becomes more common. Unlike dentures, dental implants restore smiles and the permanence of false teeth by fixing the problem at the root.
Dr. James C. Lewis understands that change is good and is equipped to offer New Port Richey dental implants using the most advanced practices and technology available. Dr. Lewis continues to push his expertise, pursuing his education in advanced cosmetic dentistry and upgrading his office. "I am committed to providing the best services available," said Dr. Lewis. "This includes being the best I can be. Dentistry is constantly evolving. I want to evolve with it."
Dental implants are tiny synthetic pins that closely resemble the common screw. They are surgically inserted to the space normally occupied by the root. The implants are attached to a metal framework on the jaw bone or directly to the jaw itself. Due to the nature of this procedure, it is performed under anesthesia. As an International College of Oral Implantology fellow, Dr. Lewis is prepared to make the procedure a pleasant, successful experience for his patients.
Dental implants are the most realistic and permanent tooth restoration procedure available. "Dental implants are supposed to mimic the roots of natural teeth," said Dr. Lewis. "For this reason, their grip is unlike any other oral adhesive. Patients are able to live, and chew, as they had before."
Unfortunately, not all patients are candidates for dental implants. Given the active role of the jaw bone, a patient must have proper bone density. Additionally, the patient should have a strong immune system. Although artificial, having dental implants does not mean a patient can neglect oral hygiene. Dental implants require a dedicated oral hygiene regimen. Patients should brush, floss and gargle just as they would with natural teeth.
