Does fixing your mouth improve self-confidence?

Dr. Ilya Benjamin

Clearly the answer is Yes!  Meet Andrew

When I first met Andrew and his grandparents, I knew that he would definitively benefit from Dental Implants.  You see, Andrew was suffering from a birth defect of congenitally missing teeth (CMT) or hypodontia.

Congenitally missing teeth (CMT), or as usually called hypodontia, is a highly prevalent and costly dental anomaly. Besides an unfavorable appearance, patients with missing teeth may suffer from malocclusion, periodontal damage, insufficient alveolar bone growth, reduced chewing ability, inarticulate pronunciation and other problems. Treatment might be usually expensive and multidisciplinary. This highly frequent and yet expensive anomaly is of interest to numerous clinical, basic science and public health fields such as orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, periodontics, maxillofacial surgery, anatomy, anthropology and even the insurance industry.

Luckily, we were able to fix his condition through ZirTeeth.  Basically, with the help of dental implants, we staged a foundation to hold his teeth, ZirTeeth.  Obviously Zir stands for Zirconia.  More on this product can be found here on

The bottom line is this.  Don’t live with something that you don’t like.  We can help.  Today’s dentistry is miles away from your grandpa’s barber shop dentist.  Today we can print or mill any type of teeth that you want.
