Dental Implants Lincolnshire

Missing teeth, loose dentures, old bridgework, and worn out partials can be replaced with secure, reliable dental implants. Dr. Sokol offers a streamlined process of implant planning, placement, and restoration. He works in conjunction with reputable local oral surgeons and periodontists to provide complete dental implant treatment to patients who want to feel as if they never lost their natural teeth.

Let’s look at Lincolnshire dental implants in comparison to other dental prosthetics.

Attachment Care Longevity
Bridges Crowned natural teeth Fixed, so regular care 5-10 years
Partials Clasps on natural teeth Fixed or removable, special cleaning and maintenance required 5-10 years
Dentures Suction or adhesive cream Fixed or removable, special cleaning and maintenance required 5-10 years with relining as needed
Dental Implants Implant post in tooth’s socket Regular care: brush, floss, checkups, and cleanings Can last forever with proper care

dental implants LincolnshireAs you can see, dental implants are self-retained. They don’t rely on healthy teeth for support. In addition, you can care for dental implants as you do natural teeth. Implant restorations will not wobble or fall out like dentures, and they don’t require as much maintenance. Because dental implants are secured into the jaw, you will be able to eat chewy, crunchy foods with confidence. Implants also look natural, and they support the cheeks and lips, which promotes a youthful appearance.

Studies show that missing one or more teeth increases the risk of losing more teeth within the next four years. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants prevents further loss of other teeth. Ask about  All-on-4® or Teeth in a Day at your dental implant consultation. These innovative procedures allow placement of dental implants and a temporary, fitted restoration in the same day. You could leave your appointment ready to eat lunch with your new teeth!
