Do you need replacement teeth?
Do you hate your dentures?
Is it time to replace your worn-out bridge or partial?
Missing teeth lead to a list of problems, from difficultly chewing and dietary limitations, to embarrassment in your appearance. Without all of your teeth, remaining teeth shift out of place to compensate for the workload of chewing and biting. This can lead to malocclusion, TMJ disorder, teeth grinding, and tooth wear or breakage. Whether you need to replace missing teeth or you wear dentures, but find them uncomfortable or cumbersome, you now have another option.
Dr. Sokol may recommend dental implants to replace individual teeth or to secure a bridge, denture, or partial. Each implant features a small, biocompatible post that acts as a replacement tooth root. A single crown or a multiple-tooth prosthetic can be anchored to implant posts.
Benefits of dental implants include:
- Surrounding teeth are not altered because implants are self-supported.
- Implants require no special care. Just brush, floss, and attend regular checkups.
- Implants never slip, like dentures, and they never need relining.
- Implants can last a lifetime with proper care.
- Implants look, feel, and function like strong, healthy teeth.
