Smiles With A Choice

Having challenges and embarrassment from tooth loss is much more common than one may think. So common, more than 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth – if you think you’re alone, don’t worry! While traditional dentures and dental bridges were popular options not too long ago, the dental world has made great strides to bring dental implants to light to provide healthy, beautiful and natural looking smiles to each patient. Our dental implants are made of titanium – a biocompatible material that fuses with underlying bone – are now considered the most advanced and modern way to comfortably restore your healthy smile. These dental implants serve as a tooth root by being inserted into the jawbone to fuse together, creating a sturdy foundation to support implant supported dentures and permanent full mouth dental implants. Known as the most versatile tooth replacement option, dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, a full arch of missing teeth and even support denture implants. Dr. Paul Mikhli is proud to provide care of the highest quality and multiple customized options to patients to design a smile they have always wanted!

Fixed VS Removable Teeth

Replacing missing teeth and restoring smiles is a standard of care here at Ohio Implant Center. By offering two completely customizable options – fixed or removable restorations – Dr. Mikhli can create a smile that is both healthy and radiant. When thinking traditionally, dentures may seem like the most cost-effective and quick fix solution to your tooth loss worries. However, they do come with more disadvantages as more advancements in the dental world appear. Dentures can fall out, require messy adhesives to stay attached to your mouth and cause gum irritation and bone recession in your jawbone. Dentures also eliminate up to 75% of taste due to the denture covering the roof of your mouth. We want you to be able to enjoy the foods you love and have conversations without worry. The solution? Dental implants and implant supported dentures. No matter the option you choose, dental implants are the premium solution to tooth loss and can eliminate many of the issues you are facing on their own. Our removable implant supported dentures here in Beachwood, OH are completed using our All-on-4 and All-on-6 treatment protocols to restore cosmetic esthetics and function.

While removable dental implants are an option that gives our patients options by being able to remove your denture at night for proper hygiene, our implant supported dentures are a beautiful permanent solution for patients not wanting to remove their final restoration once it’s placed. When it comes to restoring your teeth, we make it our priority to design a smile that is customized to you so you can enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile for a lifetime!
