Do you have one or more missing teeth? In years past, your only option might be a dental bridge or dentures. Today, advancements in dentistry have paved the way for permanent tooth replacements! Dental implants, considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement, can permanently replace one or more teeth, taking on virtually all characteristics of natural teeth from the root to the crown. With dental implants securely in your jaw, you will be able to enjoy a renewed sense of self-confidence in a complete smile, restored dental function, and improved oral health! Dr. Carl Medgaus has placed over 5,000 dental implants, in the Monroeville and Pittsburgh area, and has successfully completed over 600 full arch cases. He has trained alongside some of the top leaders in implant dentistry at the Misch Implant Institute and Pikos Institute, and is highly experienced in prosthetic and cosmetic dentistry. As one of the region’s most experienced and skilled dental implants specialists, he is uniquely trained and qualified to manage the surgical and restorative aspects of your implant care, guiding you to an improved quality of life, health, and beauty with dental implants.
Dental implants improve many areas of your dental health and overall quality of life for patients with missing teeth. Because dental implants act like natural teeth, they can take on normal biting and chewing force while remaining attractive and lifelike. Dental implants also preserve your natural jaw bone by replacing tooth roots, providing the necessary stimulation to keep the bone from resorbing and causing other teeth to shift. With this healthy structure in place, you are able to enjoy eating an unrestricted diet, maintain a healthy oral hygiene routine, and enjoy improved confidence in your daily activities and social interactions! In order for all these benefits to exist, the dental implants process must be completed by a dentist specialized in the surgical and restorative aspects of treatment.
