Frequently Asked Questions
What is a dental implant restoration?
A dental implant is a titanium post that is embedded into your jawbone. It’s the most secure way to create a new tooth or to anchor a dental prosthesis. Once you have the dental implant, then Dr. Beth Loew will add the restoration—a porcelain crown added to the post.
How does a dental implant restoration benefit me?
Dental implant restorations can return health and stability to your jawbone, and actually reverse bone loss. Your jawbone needs tooth roots to nourish. Titanium is a biocompatible material that mimics tooth roots, and your bone will fuse around the posts. This not only keeps your jawbone strong, but also ensures the health of your facial structure. We highly recommend dental implant restorations as a way to keep your dental health at optimum levels.

When should I be screened for oral cancer?
We will screen for oral cancer at your regular exams using our VELscope system. Oral cancer will affect almost 40,000 American adults this year. Of those, more than 25% will die of the disease, and only 50% of survivors live longer than five years. It’s vital that you receive an oral cancer screening from Dr. Beth Loew at her Columbus, OH office!
