also improves how you feel about yourself.
Implants are an excellent
way to replace missing teeth, and there are many benefits as to why.
The primary advantage of placing an implant, rather than a
traditional bridge is that the tooth being replaced will remain
individual, just like a natural tooth. This means an implant does not
need adjacent teeth for support, sparing the teeth on either side of
it from having a restoration placed. This also makes it easier to
floss and keep the area clean. Dental implants are extremely strong,
and have the look and feel of your own natural teeth.
Before the advancement of
modern Dentistry, patients with extensive dental conditions
(rampant tooth decay or gum disease) had very few options but to
have their teeth pulled and replaced with dentures. Up to 30 years
ago, dentures were still frequently recommended as a cosmetic
solution when teeth were not aesthetically appealing. Dr. Gatti and Dr. Purcell understand that dentures alone will not restore your ability
to function like your natural teeth. Many people are walking around
with loose or ill-fitting dentures or cannot eat certain foods that
they loved and are losing out on a lifestyle they once enjoyed.
Implant Dentures can help you achieve that that lifestyle once again.
There are 2 different types of implant dentures that we offer. The
first one is a removable denture that you snap into place, but can be
easily removed at home for cleaning purposes. The second is a fixed
denture, commonly known as “Teeth in a Day” or “All on Four”.
