Dr. Rita Salvi Platt of Healthy Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Chicago recently introduced dental implant technology to offer patients with missing teeth an optimal alternative to dentures and partial dentures.

December 27, 2013 /MM-prReach/ —

Dr. Rita Salvi Platt of Healthy Smiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Chicago recently introduced dental implant technology to offer patients with missing teeth an optimal alternative to dentures and partial dentures. With dental implants, Dr. Salvi Platt is able to provide patients with a near-natural smile that is designed to last a lifetime.

20 million Americans depend on dentures or partial dentures for everyday function. But an estimated 50 percent of those denture wearers struggle with oral appliances that don’t fit properly, are loose, broken, and restrict proper diet and chewing. Additionally, all denture wearers must hassle with adhesive pastes and strips to make sure their devices stay in place. With dental implants, however, patients only have to worry about caring for their oral health just as they would with natural teeth.

“Dental implants are really the best alternative the industry offers right now for missing teeth, and we’ve seen how they can dramatically improve our patients’ lifestyles,” said Dr. Rita Salvi Platt, dental implants dentist in Chicago, IL. “Beyond improving their appearance in general, dental implants make their day-to-day lives much easier.”

The design of each dental implant resembles the natural structure of the tooth. A small titanium stud that acts as the root of the tooth is implanted in the jawbone, and afterwards, a custom porcelain crown is attached to it that looks, acts, and performs just like a natural tooth. Dr. Salvi Platt works closely with each dental implant patient to design porcelain crowns that are the shape, shade, and size that they desire.

Dental implants can be effectively used to replace entire top and bottom arches of teeth, a series of missing teeth, or even just a singular missing tooth. They place no diet restrictions whatsoever on the patient, and because the new teeth are made of porcelain, they are not susceptible to decay and cavities.

In addition to dental implants, Dr. Rita Salvi Platt and her team also provide a variety of other dental services such as crowns, extractions, veneers, teeth whitening, and more. For those patients who have anxiety or fear of dental visits, Dr. Salvi Platt is a qualified sedation dentist in Chicago, IL. She has also received advanced education in the treatment of jaw and facial pain, and is a trained TMJ dentist in Chicago, IL.

Dr. Salvi Platt has been practicing dentistry for more than 20 years. She is a graduate of Loyola Dental School, and prior to entering the oral health industry as a dentist, she received her B.S. in dental hygiene from Marquette University. She has been practicing in Chicago at Healthy Smiles Family and Cosmetic Dentistry for nearly 14 years and is highly involved with local organizations and church groups. She is a member of the ADA, General Dentist Academy, and the Chicago Dental Society.
