In the past two decades, the use of titanium implants in dentistry has revolutionized the way we restore form and function of missing teeth. Without a doubt, the greatest benefit of this treatment has been for people who wear dentures. Not until dental implants did we have the means of offering a stable and comfortable lower denture. Dental implants have dramatically changed this unpredictable outcome in patients.
It is well documented and proven that the benefits of having a stable and comfortable denture wih respect to oral function and the psychological impact it plays in achieving a better quality of life. Age itself is no longer regarded as a contradiction and studies have demonstrated that mandibular overdentures are highly successful in older patients. Regardless of the situation, a gratifying and immediate improvement can be achieved with the use of dental implants by eliminating the discomfort, movement and goopy agents that are all associated with wearing standard "aerobic" dentures.
Today we use dental implants for dentures as well as bridges and single tooth restoration. Dental implants can meet each patients individual needs whether they are missing all, a few or just one single tooth with a dental restoration that looks and feels as though it is naturally a part of your mouth and can give you confidence and improve the way you feel about your teeth.
A key factor in maintaining good health is the ability for our immune system to protect us against any potential aggressor. In order to achieve this, it is critical to maintain proper diet and balanced nutrition, which in turn leads to a healthier life. With proper fitted and comfortable dentures and functional teeth we have the ability to eat and enjoy the foods that we love and are good for our bodies!
With a relatively minimal investment and today’s state of the art equipment and techniques, it is possible to achieve in a just a few visits, a predictable procedure that will dramatically change your ability to wear dentures. Dental implants are simply life changing to people who have been living with missing teeth or dentures that do not fit properly.
