Every year, millions of Americans suffer tooth loss from tooth decay, gingivitis, or facial injury. Originally, the restoration methods were dentures and bridges. While dentures and bridges are still great methods to replace missing teeth, there is another option that has become a preferable method for those who want to replace a tooth or a set of teeth: dental implants. Implants are durable, long lasting, and look natural with your other teeth. The Center for Advanced Dentistry offers a safe, comprehensive procedure to give you pristine, wonderful dental implants.
Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a fantastic way to replace your missing teeth. These are not temporary replacements and they do not require adhesives. Implants are permanent replacements that will last for years, with proper care. Our trained, talented doctors will examine your mouth, look at the problem area, and form a plan to craft the perfect dental implant for you. Instead of letting your self-esteem take a blow or suffer through other oral issues due to the missing tooth, our team can prepare a replacement that will make you proud to flash your smile everywhere you go.
Easy Procedure to Fix Your Smile
During your first appointment, our caring staff will attentively examine your mouth and walk you through the next steps in gaining a replacement. Afterward, we will sedate you with anesthesia so that we can surgically insert a biocompatible titanium post into your jawbone. You will then go through a healing period as the bone grows over and bonds with the post. After the post heals, you will return to our office. We will double-check everything to make sure the post is secure and everything has healed properly. If all is well and you do not require extra healing time, we will secure and bond the replacement tooth on the post. Then, you can walk out of our building with a complete, full smile across your face.

We love to help patients achieve the smile they want, and our doctors are always ready to provide natural tooth replacements for those who need it.

Semi-annual dental checkups and dental cleanings will prevent these issues as well as improve the color and brightness of your smile.

The New Year is here! While everyone is busy making resolutions and heading to the gym, why not start out 2013 right with teeth whitening from the Center for Advanced Dentistry?
Teeth whitening is a great way to enhance the beauty of your teeth. Whiter teeth will help lend confidence to your smile.
We offer the BriteSmile teeth whitening system, which will brighten your teeth an average of nine shades, and offer both in-office and take home whitening solutions. Dr. Hornstein will apply a gentle teeth whitening gel and then use a special blue light to whiten your teeth. Come in on your lunch break and leave with whiter teeth!
We also offer a special “Whitening for Life” program. To participate, first you’ll have an in-office teeth whitening appointment where you’ll also receive custom teeth whitening trays and three syringes of whitening gel to use at home to help your beautiful white teeth last. If you come and visit us every six months for your regular dental cleaning appointment, you’ll receive two syringes of whitening gel free at each appointment.
Many of our patients find that teeth whitening leaves them looking younger and gives them an added boost of confidence. The New Year is a great time for fresh starts, so why not start it off with beautifully white teeth!

Even if you’ve been to the dentist just once in your life, you know that sugary foods and drinks are bad for your teeth. But do you know why that is?
The simple truth is that it’s not the sugar per se but the chemical reaction that happens between the sugar and the bacteria in your mouth. As bacteria metabolize sugar, the byproduct is acid. When this acid comes into contact with the enamel on your teeth, it has a destructive influence. As a result, teeth are left weakened and exposed to the possibility of experiencing decay.
Fluoride helps strengthen teeth by attracting important minerals, but some patients aren’t getting as much fluoride as they used to or need to. Thanks to the popularity of bottled water today, many patients are drinking non-fluoridated water every day, depriving their teeth of essential protection.
So, how can you protect your smile?
The first way is through regular maintenance at home. Brush and floss after every meal if you can. If you can’t do that, try rinsing your mouth with water between meals. Chewing a sugar-less gum sweetened with xylitol can also help, and you may also want to use a fluoride mouthwash to help strengthen your teeth.
Regular checkups are also important. Remember to schedule one every six months, or about twice a year. During a regular checkup, Dr. Hornstein and the rest of our team at The Center for Advanced Dentistry in Beachwood can thoroughly examine your smile and look for signs of decay. If we find any sign of trouble, we can create a treatment plan to help you combat it before it develops into a serious problem.
Call our office today to schedule next appointment. The Center for Advanced Dentistry serves patients from Beachwood, Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and beyond.

Fall starts on Saturday, September 22. That means a new season, and the cooler weather that comes with it, is on the way. It also means the arrival of the holiday season, a joyful but notoriously hectic time for most of us.
Given both of these statements, your next dental visit is probably the last thing on your mind. But despite that, now is actually the perfect time to get your fall visit out of the way, especially if your last checkup with The Center for Advanced Dentistry was in January or February.
When you consider how important rich, decadent foods are to the holiday season, don’t you want to enjoy all that you can without letting thoughts about your oral health hold you back? With your regular checkup and cleaning, Dr. Hornstein can tell you where you stand and, if need be, offer restorative or cosmetic therapies that will help you get your smile into great shape just in time for all the fun.
What’s more, if you’re like many patients, you have dental benefits that will expire at the end of the year. By coming to see us sooner rather than later, we can help you apply those benefits to the essential care you need now instead of later next year.
Call The Center for Advanced Dentistry in Beachwood today to schedule your fall checkup. During your checkup, Dr. Hornstein will complete a thorough oral exam and help you understand how your smile is doing. And if we need to, our team would be happy to talk to you about brushing and floss, in addition to recommending additional services. We serve patients from Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and beyond.

We’re only a week into August but a new school year is just around the corner, which raises an important question: have you brought your son or daughter into The Center for Advanced Dentistry for a back-to-school checkup yet? If you haven’t, why not schedule an appointment today? We know how busy life can get once school has started, so don’t wait—call Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood dental office today!
Why Are Back-to-School Visits So Important?
As we already mentioned, once school gets started life can get pretty busy. But putting off important dental visits won’t put common oral health problems like tooth decay or gum disease on hold. If your child has any of these, they’ll only get worse as more time passes.
During a regular, back-to-school checkup, though, Dr. Hornstein can look for signs of these common conditions and can treat them now, before they require more extensive treatment.
What’s more, during your child’s visit, Dr. Hornstein can offer him or her extra protection from cavities with dental sealants. Recognized by the ADA as an effective cavity-prevention tool, dental sealants work by shielding chewing surfaces from decay. You can learn more by visiting our dental sealants page here.
And if you’re ready to schedule your child’s back-to-school visit, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Creating healthy smiles for patients from Beachwood, Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and beyond is our passion. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Fourth of July was on Wednesday, and from all of us at Dr. Hornstein’s Beachwood dental office, we hope you and your family had a safe and fun holiday.
And while we’re on the topic, we’d like to talk a little bit about freedom, which is what the Fourth is all about.
You already know how important freedom is. It’s what enables us to pursue our dreams and live according to our most deeply held beliefs. But in the context of dentistry, freedom is also about choosing the best dentist for your personal needs. That means finding a dentist who will not only provide excellent general dentistry services but will also make preventive and holistic dentistry a priority.
If that’s what you need, that’s what you’ll find at The Center for Advanced Dentistry. As we mentioned back in May, the goal of holistic dentistry is supporting and improving your overall wellbeing. When you do that, you improve your smile’s chances of staying healthy and strong. And with preventive checkups and cleanings, Dr. Hornstein can keep an eye on how your teeth are doing. Catching decay and gum disease early are important, and it’s through twice-yearly visits like these that we have a chance to catch them before they develop into a more serious problem.
Is it time for you to schedule your next regular exam or cleaning? We hope you’ll choose The Center for Advanced Dentistry. Call our Beachwood office today to schedule your appointment. We serve patients from Cleveland, Solon, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, and beyond.
