At Smiles on Broadway, we offer dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health.
They also have the same, dependable foundation as natural tooth roots.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you may want to consider dental implants. They are the most long-lasting and effective solution to replace your missing teeth. With permanently placed implants, you will no longer have to experience discomfort in chewing, laughing or speaking.
An ideal dental implant candidate should have the following:
- Healthy teeth and gums
- A commitment to optimal care of the implanted teeth and surrounding gums
- Sufficient bone density to support the dental implant
- Are non-smokers or are willing to stop smoking during the dental implant process
Our team will discuss tooth replacement options with you to help you make the most informed decisions. We utilize modern technology to minimize any discomfort associated with receiving a dental implant. This allows for a very relaxed and comfortable experience, for even the most fearful patients.
Our dentists and team are committed to helping you achieve and maintain a beautiful, healthy smile.
Continuing a tradition of dedication to providing modern and high quality dental care, Dr. Andrew Reese received the Academy of General Dentistry’s Fellowship Award during the AGD 2015 annual meeting, which took place June 18 to 21 in San Francisco.
The AGD Fellowship Award is presented to dentists who seek to provide the highest quality dental care by remaining on the cutting edge of their profession. To earn this prestigious honor, Dr. Reese completed more than 500 hours of dental continuing education and passed a comprehensive written exam covering all aspects of dental medicine.
As a Fellowship Award recipient, Dr. Andrew Reese joins his father Dr. David Reese and approximately 6,000 dentists nationally who have gone above and beyond the basic requirements to care for their patients’ oral health.
“We are proud to honor Dr. Reese for his commitment in reaching this lofty goal,” says AGD Immediate Past President W. Carter Brown, DMD, FAGD. “He has distinguished himself professionally among his peers and is a role model for both his fellow dentists and the Hanover community.”
We feel this is important to share with you because we are proud to have patients like you that value their healthcare. We want you to know that we take very seriously our shared responsibility to offer you the best oral health care possible and we devote much time learning how to accomplish this. Thank you!
