Dental Implants As a Gift

November 14, 2012

Want to give the gift of dental implants for the new year? It’s not that far fetched.

You’ve heard a lot about dental implants on this blog for good reason. As a reminder here are some of the reasons why.

  • Implants are a safe and organic alternative to other plans
  • They can help prevent you from losing more teeth in the future.
  • You have the root of your tooth and your smile restored at the same time.

Interested? There are steps to what happens next.

Dr. Hornstein will decide if you or your loved one is a candidate for implants. If Dr. Hornstein believes you are, the proverbial ball can begin rolling as soon as possible. Doesn’t matter if one tooth or a whole row needs replacing, dental implants do the heavy work. By forming an artificial root for your tooth or teeth, these aren’t like dentures. They don’t slip like dentures, so don’t worry about that common problem. You must have a stable jawbone, and if you or your loved one qualifies, get ready for a life-changing experience in only a few visits.

Sometimes, bone grafting may be needed beforehand. Most people qualify for dental implants, so rest assured. Schedule a consultation. In addition to regular brushing and flossing twice a day, regular check-up with Dr. Hornstein will make sure things are going accordingly.

Imagine improved speech along with the confidence found in a bright and healthy smile. Speaking with ease and clarity is always a plus, no matter what your age is. No need for a soft-spoken approach or sentences with only a few words. Dental implants can get you or a loved one on that road.

Give us a call today. The new year will be here sooner than you think. We serve patients from Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and surrounding areas.

Smile Makeover, Part 2: How Can I Have Straighter Teeth?

October 14, 2011

Our last post introduced what we call “smile makeovers.” Today, we’ll spend a little time talking about one service that’s making smile makeovers easier and more convenient.

The Differences Between Braces and Invisalign Clear Braces

While traditional braces and braces from Invisalign can help you achieve the same results, they do so in very different ways. Traditional braces use brackets and wires to gradually shift your teeth into place. Invisalign, on the other hand, uses clear, custom-made acrylic trays.


A Natural-Looking Smile with Dental Implants from Dr. Hornstein

September 16, 2011

It can be hard to feel confident when your smile’s missing one or more teeth. But missing teeth can affect more than your confidence—they can also have a serious impact on your oral health.

Patients with missing teeth will eventually experience bone loss in their jawbone, because where there used to be a root to anchor your tooth and stimulate the growth of new bone tissue, now there’s nothing at all. That means part of your jaw doesn’t have a purpose anymore. What’s more, as your jawbone grows increasingly weaker, it’s likely that you could lose more teeth over time.

Traditional dentures can help restore your smile’s appearance, but they can’t do much to restore the root you’ve lost. That’s why, at Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood office, we offer dental implants.

How Dental Implants Work

Unlike traditional dentures and other restorative options, dental implants restore your missing tooth and your missing root. That means having a dental implant placed is almost like getting your old tooth back. And, as an added benefit, dental implants look completely natural. No one but you and Dr. Hornstein will ever need to know you have implants.

If you’d like to find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, call our Beachwood office today to schedule a consultation appointment. In just a single visit, Dr. Hornstein can determine if dental implants are right for you and begin a treatment plan that will restore your smile.
