Melville, NY (PRWEB) September 02, 2014
In recognition of September being designated as Self-Improvement Month, Dr. Jeffrey Kopman of Kopman Periodontics and Implant Dentistry offers dental care in Melville, NY that includes the availability of dental implants. These implants can be used to not only improve the cosmetic appearance of a patient’s smile, but to also prevent some of the serious consequences that can arise if missing teeth are left untreated. Given the prevalence of missing teeth in adults, the availability of implants that are able to provide so many benefits to patients is of vital importance.
While there is no doubt that many American adults suffer from missing teeth, it may be the case that too many forgo the opportunity for self-improvement by failing to explore dental implants as a viable solution to their problem. With almost three-quarters of the adult population from age 35 to 44 having lost at least one permanent tooth, it becomes very important that long term and practical solutions are made available. The fact that more than a quarter of adults over the age of 74 are missing all of their permanent teeth only serves to further underscore the need for a permanent and convenient treatment option, which is available through Dr. Kopman and his services for dental care in Melville, NY.
The procedure involved in placing dental implants is fairly simple and actually results in a number of additional benefits beyond the restoration of the functionality and aesthetic appeal of a patient’s smile. The implants are anchored into the jaw bone, which enhances the stability of the implant and assists in reducing the incidence of further bone loss. The implants are also known to be exceptionally durable, as they are designed to last a lifetime.
Patients who are interested in dental care in Melville, NY and the opportunities for self-improvement provided by Dr. Kopman should contact his office at their earliest convenience to schedule an appointment for a consultation. Dr. Kopman will be able to discuss the many options that may be available and each patient’s respective eligibility for implants. He will also be able to discuss the nature of the procedure in detail along with any other relevant information.
