Dentist in Burlington
Dental implants are a safe, durable replacement for missing teeth. Dental implants function and appear like natural teeth. Dr. Mary Makhlouf is committed to ensuring your optimal comfort and quality care. We use the latest techniques, 3D X-rays and preplanning software to ensure efficient, stress-free treatment.
Did you know:
- Missing teeth can cause a number of oral function complications?
- Missing teeth cause the jaw to begin to break down because tooth roots are vital to jaw health?
- There’s a way for tooth replacement that mimics natural tooth roots?
Doc Mary is a fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. This recognizes Doc’s training and proficiency in the field of dental implants.
Replacing missing teeth keeps problems such as shifting teeth, collapsing bite, and gum disease at bay, but if you decide that dental implants are the right tooth replacement option for you, the titanium posts that are implanted in your jaw bone eventually fuse to the bone, preventing bone loss. Of all the tooth replacement option, dental implants are the sturdiest, with none of the embarrassing slipping you might experience with traditional dentures.
Dr. Mary Makhlouf can create your dental implant restorations, the crowns that affix to the titanium posts after they’ve been implanted. If a specialist is needed, She will work with an oral surgeon to coordinate your treatment plan.
