Dental Implants (

A dental implant is commonly made of titanium and replaces the root of a missing tooth. Replacement teeth are then placed on the post to provide a natural, durable and esthetic replacement for your missing tooth or teeth.

Dr. Smilovits is fully trained and experienced in the placements of dental implants. He can design and execute a full implant treatment procedure right in our office.

Dr. Smilovits will design your implant treatment plan, place the implant post and then place a replacement tooth. In many cases the final crown can be placed on the same day as the implant.

The first step will be to get a complete examination by Dr. Smilovits to determine whether dental implants are the best way to replace your missing tooth or teeth. He will then prepare a full treatment plan.

The Benefits of Dental Implants
Not only does a dental implant fill unsightly gaps in a smile, they are also important to deter bone loss which will occur when a tooth is lost. The titanium post fuses with the bone preventing it from dissolving.

Fixed bridges and removable dentures are not the perfect solution to missing teeth and often bring with them a number of other problems.

When teeth are lost, the bone which held the roots of the teeth starts to dissolve, and so removable dentures — which use this bone for support—may slip or cause sores on the gums because the dentures will not be as stable.

Are you a candidate for dental implants?
The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant. Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but the bone must first be rebuilt using special bone-grafting procedures.

If your bone structure is adequate and bone-grafting is not required, the permanent dental implant, post and tooth restoration can be placed in one visit.

People who are currently wearing partial or full dentures can replace these with dental implants, or use implants to stabilize and secure the denture, making it much more comfortable.

Preventive Dentistry (

Preventive dentistry is the ongoing care used to prevent the occurrence of tooth decay and other dental diseases. Public health advocates are also battling the tooth decay epidemic through preventive dentistry methods.

We have so many resources to keep our dental health in check -- here's how you can best utilize them.

General dentistry is preventive dentistry, and dental exams are a necessary part of any preventive dentistry program. Because most dental problems are painless, if you're not visiting the dentist on a regular basis, you may not be aware of your condition until it causes significant damage. And if you're concerned about the cost, consider this: Preventive dentistry is less expensive than restorative dental treatment, which you're bound to need if you don't take care of your teeth!

*Checkup and Dental Cleaning - A prophylaxis, also known as a dental cleaning, appointment is recommended every six months to check for signs of tooth decay and remove dental plaque that you've missed. The dentist and dental hygienist have special tools to reduce the dental tartar and stains that you're unable to remove on your own.

*X-rays - X-rays allow dentists to look for dental conditions not visible to the naked eye, such as cavities between teeth and dental problems below the gum line.

*Oral Cancer Screening - Dentists will check for signs of malignancy during a dental exam. If needed, they'll conduct an oral cancer exam.

*Patient Education - Patients who understand the outcome of poor dental health are more likely to see the dentist for preventive dentistry treatments.

Restorative Dentistry (

Restorative dentistry has to do with restoring your mouth to a natural, attractive and functional condition.

Procedures used to restore your teeth include crowns, dental implants, inlays and onlays (restorations used when the tooth is too broken down for a filling but doesn’t require a crown), bridges and dentures.

The method used will depend on the state of your teeth or the number of teeth missing and your budget. We will examine your teeth and see which procedure(s) will work best for you.

Dr. Smilovites has over 25 years of experience in reconstructive dental procedures, and holds a fellowship in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, making him fully qualified to handle all aspects of implant dentistry.

Only 2% of dentists in the United States hold this level of skill and training in Dental Implants, which have become the industry standard for tooth replacement.
