Broward Periodontist Restores Smiles One Dental Implant At A Time

Dental implants can create a flawless smile and if maintained properly, can last a lifetime.

    The effects of a missing tooth can run far deeper than a flawed smile.

/24-7PressRelease/ - FLORIDA, July 28, 2007 - People with missing teeth often feel self-conscious about their smiles. They can have difficulty eating certain foods. Missing teeth can even change a person's bite pattern.

Dr. Richard Morrow, a periodontist at Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry in Boca Raton and Broward County is an expert in restoring confidence, self-esteem and dental health in patients with the use of dental implants.

Dental implants are artificial teeth that look and feel like the real thing. They are placed into the jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

'Dental implants are an ideal choice for patients who are missing teeth due to an injury, disease or decay,- said Dr. Charles Nottingham, a cosmetic dentist who is the senior partner of Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry.

If a patient is healthy and the bone is healthy enough to receive dental implants, 'that is the state-of-the-art way to go,- Nottingham said. 'It is the most recommended treatment at this point.-

If placed properly by a periodontist and properly maintained by the patient, dental implants can last a lifetime.

That is important because as life spans increase, a permanent dental replacement is increasingly desirable. Dentures and bridges can be loose and unstable, while dental implants are natural looking, functional and permanent. They look and feel better than traditional removable bridges, and offer the same force for biting as bridges that are fixed in place, according to

Choosing a periodontist

It is important that patients do their homework when seeking the right periodontist to install dental implants, Nottingham said. Because this is a surgical procedure, finding a well-credentialed periodontist with a good track record should be paramount.

Although many cosmetic procedures are performed by family dentists, periodontists have the education and training that give them an artistic advantage to achieving natural-looking results for their patients.

Selecting a periodontist who is a member of the American Academy of Periodontology is a great start to achieving good results from dental implants.

In addition to being a member of the AAP, Dr. Morrow also is a member of the American Dental Association, the Florida Dental Association, the Broward County Dental Association, the Atlantic Coast District Dental Society and the Florida Society of Periodontics.
