To replace a single tooth, a few teeth, or all teeth on the upper or lower arch, dental implants offer unrivaled stability and longevity. Dental implants are anchored to a small post surgically implanted into the jaw bone. One implant can hold a single tooth, a few implants will support a bridge or partial, while four to six implants can retain a denture. Besides being a stable choice, dental implants promote good oral health by serving as tooth roots, preserving and strengthening your jaw bone.
Our state-of-the-art dental practice can be a one-stop shop for many of the procedures you may require. Because we offer a variety of oral surgery procedures, you can enjoy the convenience and lower stress that is associated with receiving most or all of your dental treatment under one roof, with one doctor overseeing your care. We can surgically replace your dental implants as well as restore them, and we can also perform associated procedures such as bone grafts and sinus lifts. Our doctor received his dental implant training from a prestigious 2-year program from NYU, where he currently serves on the Associate Clinical Faculty.
Studies show that when we do not replace a missing tooth, we increase the risk for losing more teeth over time. A dental crown replaces one lost tooth and a bridge replaces a row of lost teeth. Once in place, these restorations are not removable, and with proper care, can last ten years or more. They are custom-crafted for you, in terms of size and color, and will blend with your other teeth, providing a natural-looking replacement.
Dental fillings are a conservative treatment for tooth decay. Dr. Morris prefers to use tooth-colored composite resin for fillings, since it is metal-free and more attractive in your mouth, blending seamlessly with your tooth enamel. Composite fillings are usually placed in one office visit, and they can last for years with proper care, including brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and attending checkups and cleanings every six months.
If your teeth are damaged, you have lost teeth, or your previous dental work is failing, a full mouth reconstruction may be an optimal solution. Dr, Morris can create a custom treatment plan that includes a number of procedures, from crowns and bridges to dental implants, to bring your mouth back to full health. With healthy teeth and gums, you will feel better and more self-confident. You may also find freedom from the pain that has been a part of your daily life for years.
