Dental Implants in Brooklyn
Missing teeth do more than make a smile seem incomplete, an uneven bite, collapsed facial structure or eventual damage to the surrounding teeth can also result from leaving spaces vacated by lost teeth untreated. Dental implants in Brooklyn are a great solution to the problems that missing teeth can cause. Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements. Our doctor opens the gum and surgically implants a titanium anchor directly into the jawbone, which over time will bond with the jawbone, essentially becoming a part of it. Once the bonding has taken place our doctor will attach a healing collar or post to the anchor. Our dentist will then create a custom crown that goes on top of the post and completely blends in with the rest of your natural teeth.
Because the implants need time to bond with the bone the total time frame from the initial surgery to full restoration is usually between three and six months. In between most patients will use temporary bridgework. In most cases there is little or no disruption to the patient’s normal life during the whole process. The result of dental implants in Brooklyn is a completely natural bite and full smile. You look and feel much better. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or a few teeth anywhere around the mouth or even a full set of teeth.
An alternative to dental implants where several teeth or a full jaw of teeth need to be replaced is a full or partial denture. As opposed to a dental implant in Brooklyn that is anchored into the bone a denture is a row of artificial teeth that are imbedded in a gum-like substrate that goes over the gum. It is attached to the gum using a dental adhesive and must be removed daily for cleaning. Dentures take much less time to complete than implants but implants are permanent teeth anchored securely into the gums. Our practice often uses implanted anchors as a means of securing dentures where four anchors are implanted per jaws to which the dentures are eventually secured. Are dental implants or dentures right for you? The best way to find out is to come into the office and let our expert professionals evaluate just what difference replacing missing teeth can make to your life.

Juvederm in Parma
Here at Biddulph Family Dental, we are concerned for not only your dental but also your facial well-being. With our Juvederm in Parma, we can help you to improve your cosmetic appearance and achieve smooth skin. And while there is no such thing as a miracle treatment and every cosmetic enhancement process has its drawbacks, there are many reasons to feel positive about what Juvederm injections offer you.
The first thing that you should know about our Juvederm in Parma is that it is approved by the FDA and it’s both safe and effective, adding volume to your lips as well as lifting and filling out wrinkles and folds. It is made from a substance that occurs naturally in your body and is present in your skin. This substance, known as hyaluronic acid, is the main ingredient in Juvederm. It hydrates your skin and makes your lips appear fuller. You may be wondering why you need our treatments since your body makes its own. And the reason is that as natural part of the aging process, you lose hyaluronic acid. Our dentist applies the injections underneath your skin, smoothing out wrinkles, creases, and folds, and restoring lost volume.
Each person’s experience with our Juvederm in Parma will be unique, and therefore it is not possible to guarantee specific results. In some cases in which the treated area lacks adequate resolution, retreatment might be required to get the needed outcome. But the good news is that the majority of patients get impressive benefits from these injections and we will do everything possible to ensure that you are one of them. Our dentist is board certified and has a great deal of experience in the use of Juvederm. As a side benefit, you can typically schedule the injections as part of the same visit for getting dental work done, making it more convenient for you.
After you get treated with our Juvederm in Parma, it is recommended that you keep your head elevated for an hour and use an ice pack for the first 24 to 48 hours in order to control any normal pain and swelling that occurs. Use ibuprofen also to assist with that. You should expect to get about 3 to 5 months out of your injections before the process has to be repeated. Why not call us today and schedule an appointment?
