    CHICAGO, IL, May 23, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On the day of an important job interview, most people are worried about the outfit: what combination of clothes will best represent their personality and give a good first impression on their potential employer? Others are preoccupied with that pivotal handshake, and some people have been known to visit the restroom to practice smiling in the mirror before they walk into the interview. Many employers admit that a smile can go a long way in making a lasting first impression, which can ultimately make or break a person's chances of landing their dream job.

The staff at Lakeview Dental Associates understands just how much a simple smile can change a person's life-especially a person who has lost teeth to unfortunate circumstances like disease, injury, or decay. Lakeview dentist Scott Emalfarb has been providing several services to restore great smiles for years, and now they are now pleased to offer one more.

Lakeview Dental now offers surgically-placed dental implants as another option to patients in need of tooth restoration. Before these prosthetics became available, dentures and bridges were the only alternative for Lakeview patients to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implant-restored crowns are a much more viable alternative, proving to be more successful than the other methods in almost every way.

Dental implants look and feel like natural, healthy teeth, improving overall dental appearance and oral health. Some celebrities owe their smiles to implant surgery; supermodel Kathy Ireland received a dental implant after an accident left her with several broken teeth. For her, this procedure was a key component in continuing to live out her dream. In an interview with Dear Doctor magazine, Kathy stated that she used her six-week recovery time to focus on her design business-resulting in the biggest growth the company has seen since it began in 1993. Dental implants do wonders to change a smile, but they won't interrupt daily life.

There are other benefits dental implants have over dentures, including:

- Easier laughing, talking, and eating
- Uncomplicated cleaning regimens
- Bone loss prevention
- Customized fit and color

Dental implants can be used to replace one or multiple teeth, and each procedure can vary depending on the patient's needs. Not everyone is a candidate for dental implants, however. Successful implantation requires proper bone density and a strong immune system. Smokers are at a greater risk of bone reduction in the jaw, and therefore, are not usually potential candidates for oral surgery.

Lakeview dentist Scott Emalfarb is a graduate of the University of Illinois and earned his doctorate in dental surgery in 1989 from Loyola University School of Dentistry. He is also a member of the Chicago Dental Society. Dr. Emalfarb provides patients with excellent dental and periodontal care, including cosmetic procedures such as dental implantation. He encourages anyone who has ever considered restoration surgery to visit his practice to learn more about the options that are available to them.
