Dental implants can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Either way, the implant is made of biocompatible titanium, which is inserted into the jawbone. Over the next four to six months, the implant osseointegrates, or fuses, with the bone, creating a strong and stable replacement for the tooth root. An abutment post is then used to attach the final restoration to the implant.

Implant Options for Multiple Missing Teeth
If you are missing multiple teeth, an implant-supported bridge, removable implant-supported denture, or fixed implant-supported denture could be a solution. An implant-supported bridge is anchored by an implant at each end, with pontics, or synthetic teeth, in between. If you are missing a few teeth in a row, this is a great option.
A removable implant-supported denture can be secured by just two implants. Rather than relying on denture paste or adhesive, the denture simply snaps onto the implants for stability. It can still be removed for sleeping or cleaning.
A fixed implant-supported denture is securely attached to a set of precisely placed dental implants. As the name suggests, it is not removable. This is the most natural option, and it restores nearly all of your original bite strength. If you have extensive bone loss, a customized milled bar may be used to firmly secure the implants to each other.
Pain from Dental Implants
Most patients claim that receiving dental implants hurts less than having a tooth pulled. We use local anesthesia during the placement process, and any lingering soreness generally responds well to over-the-counter pain medication such as Advil or Tylenol. If you have any pain that lasts for more than a couple of days, call our office.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Every patient is different, and we customize our treatment plans to meet the needs of each patient. Dr. Rothenberg will perform a thorough evaluation and make recommendations based on the results. For the majority of patients who are missing teeth, though, dental implants are a long-lasting, durable, and highly aesthetic solution for restoring their smiles. Many dental insurance plans now cover dental implants, and we offer different financing options. Do not assume that dental implants are out of your reach financially. Call us to see how we can help.

How to find the right implantologist – light in the dark for patients
Zug/Hamburg, 25th October 2014
The editors of Spiegel got straight to the point of what the internet portal Leading Implant Centers successfully fights for in the implantology market for over a year. Due to lacking transparency in the clutter of dental training for implantologists, most patients are unaware which education they can trust and whether or not the dental specialist is certified.
Leading Implant Centers is the only internet platform that entered the market exactly for this reason: to create transparency for the patients and to ask for a high standard for the further training of dental specialists as implantologists. As Spiegel reports, trained dental specialists decorate and adorn themselves with degrees such as Curriculum or other non-transparent certificates that are not distinguishable for patients. The internet platform Leading Implant Centers offers a solution. All members are dental specialists within the field of implantology and are quality-wise on the highest education and certification level of the specific scientific dental associations.
Dr. Donald Rothenberg from Marblehead in USA has been accepted to join Leading Implant Centers, since he fulfills all the criteria for a membership.
“We want to ensure safety for the patient” explain the founders of Leading Implant Centers. “Therefore it was a must for the founders of the portal one year ago that a scientific advisory board of worldwide renowned implantologists, who also partially hold roles with the international scientific professional societies, reviews and ensures the qualitative contents of the portal and also ensures the systematic examination of the applications for admission of implantologists to the portal.”With all criticism about the confusion of the training of implantologists, implanted dentures offer many advantages for patients, these can be of medical, masticatory and especially esthetical nature. Often a tooth replacement with a single tooth implant is very pleasant as compared to a bridge, the interdental spaces can be flossed and the neighboring teeth do not need to be ground. This enables a more sustainable tooth preservation.
Not only should a good implantologist have a good education, he should explain the purpose for which he wants to utilize implants, creates transparency for the costs and explains the opportunities and risks of the intervention, but also provides alternatives to implantation. He works with the consciousness of being capable to offer an optimal and individually optimized dentistry. A basis of trust between implantologist and patient is also important for the success of the treatment as healing and success of a medical intervention can only take place in an atmosphere of trust. Therefore, the active co-operation and willingness to provide information is asked of the patient. Only then can the dental specialist decide if for example an anxiety treatment for the patient is necessary. In Germany, patients expect a high professional expertise of their dental specialist and this fact usually leads to a commitment for the implantologist.The founders of Leading Implant Centers act for the long term. They are establishing a worldwide network of qualified implantologists to offer patients an extensive network of well trained implantologists and to implement the training and education for implantologists at the highest level of education as the standard. Find the closest implantologist you trust in your vicinity. Dr. Donald Rothenberg from Marblehead. MA in the USA belongs to this small circle, he is an expert you can trust and stands for dental excellence on the highest level – guaranteed.
