Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) June 16, 2009 -- The loss of one tooth or several teeth has a significant impact on a person's life. Lack of confidence in social situations, inability to eat properly (and subsequent nutritional problems), and decreased self-esteem are all common consequences of tooth loss. Located in Newport Beach, California, the WÃ¶hrle Dental Implant Clinic offers state-of-the-art solutions for the replacement of missing teeth, including the revolutionary NobelPerfect implant and the use of immediate loading procedures to replace teeth quickly and permanently.
Missing teeth (edentulism) is often assumed to be a problem that affects only the elderly. In reality, there are approximately 100 million people in the U.S. who are missing one or more of their teeth, and almost 30% of those are between 34 and 54 years of age.
When teeth are lost as either the result of trauma, severe decay, or periodontal disease, the remaining teeth may shift and the jaw may begin to shrink. This shrinkage can cause the face to appear prematurely older. For these patients, the replacement of teeth with permanent, natural-looking dental implants can not only restore their self-esteem and confidence, but offer them the full functionality and comfort of their natural teeth.
Implant dentistry involves the use of a titanium post, anchored to the jawbone, to mimic the root of a natural tooth. When an artificial cap is mounted on this titanium root, the result is a tooth replacement that looks, feels, and functions just like the patient's natural tooth. Developed by Dr. WÃ¶hrle and available only to a select few oral surgeons, the NobelPerfect implant is the best, most natural-looking single tooth replacement modern dentistry has to offer.
When multiple teeth must be replaced, Dr. WÃ¶hrle and his team utilize immediate loading procedures, such as the revolutionary "Teeth in an Hour" surgical technique and the "All-On-Four" method, whenever possible to minimize the number of appointments necessary and to decrease recovery times. In fact, patients are often able to enjoy the use of their new teeth on the same day they are placed.
A world-renowned leader in the field of dentistry, Dr. Peter WÃ¶hrle received his DMD and Master of Medical Sciences (Oral Biology) degrees from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine in 1988. He furthered his work at Harvard with advanced educational programs in implant dentistry and prosthodontics, where he contributed to the development of groundbreaking immediate loading dental implant techniques. Dr. WÃ¶hrle is widely recognized as the only practicing dentist educated in all three of the interrelated disciplines of laboratory technology, prosthodontics and implant dentistry.
One of the premier dental implant providers in Southern California, the WÃ¶hrle Dental Implant Clinic delivers superior, innovative care in a comfortable, state-of-the-art facility. Committed to unprecedented convenience for the patient and utilizing the very latest technologies, including on-site CAT scanning and computer-guided surgery, the WÃ¶hrle Dental Implant Clinic is by far the best choice for tooth replacement in Newport Beach.
