Well, at Gentle Dental Care, we know just how rough your new existence can be. That’s why Dr. Peltzer has invested the time and necessary resources to become an expert in restorative dentistry, namely in placing dental implants.

A Stable Solution For Missing Teeth
Adult tooth loss will force you to look for options. Out of those, we think that dental implants are the best thing going. You see, dental implants are far more stable and natural-looking than bridges, and they eliminate the slippery issues associated with dentures. They also help maintain your healthy tooth structure because there’s no need for us to file down healthy teeth in order to place your implants.
If you should decide on implants, you won’t find a better place in the area for getting the job done. Dr. Thomas Peltzer is a member of The International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and has had extensive experience surgically placing dental implants as well as restoring implants with crowns, bridges, and implant-retained dentures.
Dr. Peltzer Makes Implants Easy
Dental implants involve a small surgical procedure that is really a two-step process. Here’s the way it works: your implant will first be inserted and allowed to fuse with your bone. This will mimic the function of your root.
After the necessary healing has happened, a dental crown will be placed during your second visit to our office. This is the part that will look like the top of your natural teeth.
Implants Boost Your Appearance
With wide open spaces between teeth, your smile will suffer. And when your cheeks start to cave in, it will make you look older than you really are. But lucky for you, the crown we place over the implant will look and feel completely natural, it will give you a fuller smile and facial support. You will look better and have more confidence!
Dental Implants Are Comfortable
When it comes to artificial teeth, nothing will be as easy or as comfortable as a dental implant. Our implant and crown combination feels so much like your natural teeth that you’ll forget that they aren’t your own.
Implants Expand Your Menu
After both parts of the procedure are through, you will once again have real biting power. This means that you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the fiber-rich stuff that keeps you healthy and feeling good. No more soft foods!
Implants Are Easy To Care For
With implants, you simply brush your “teeth” twice a day and floss like you normally would, and then come into our office for regular 6 month checkups to make sure your teeth and gums remain healthy. That’s all there is to caring for your implants that should last a lifetime. Dr. Peltzer will give you tips along the way!
Around here, there are multiple options (besides individual implants) when more than one of your teeth are missing…
All-on-4: an upper or lower arch of replacement teeth are attached to four implants.
All-on-6: an upper or lower arch of replacement teeth are attached to six implants.
Implant-retained dentures: removable dentures that snap onto an implant-supported bar or are connected by balls and sockets.
Implant-supported dentures: permanent full or partial dentures secured to several implants.
Fixed bridge: two or more implants supporting a few teeth to permanently fill a gap left by missing teeth.
