Dr. Hecht: The materials used in dental implants today far surpass those of years past. We use titanium rods and screws for the actual implant, and zirconium-based prosthetics look and feel like natural teeth, and they won't crack, chip or stain. This can be done with as little as one tooth to an entire full mouth of teeth. Patient 4: I've had my implants for a year now, and it's like having my own teeth. There's no two ways about it. Patient 2: They're like my own teeth. I don't even consider them as implants. Dr. Hecht: Problem or missing teeth can be a thing of the past. They can negatively affect your health and your self-esteem. Patient 1: Sometimes it was very uncomfortable for me. It made me not smile as much as I wanted to. It made me very, very conscious. Patient 5: Couldn't eat, couldn't drink, we didn't go out any more. We didn't socialize. Dr. Hecht: We will restore function, health, and radiance to your smile, and boost your confidence. Patient 1: Since my dental implants, my life is great. I'm more confident. I could smile without worrying. I could eat what I want. Patient 3: I have teeth again instead of teeth I take out and put in a jar. Patient 5: My grandchildren are playing ball. My husband stands up, and he's yelling, he's screaming, and his teeth aren't falling out. He's got the greatest implants in the world. Dr. Hecht: The process is simple; the results, outstanding.
