Attention: there is life after dentures with tooth implants!
If you are one of the many Cary denture wearers, you know they aren’t an ideal option.
Problems with dentures
Slipping, gum irritation, trouble eating and talking bone loss, and problems tasting food.
Clearly, dentures do not feel and function like authentic teeth.
Tooth implants are the best tooth-replacement option. Period.
Modern dental implant technology is helping more and more men and women live without established dentures. Implant anchored dentures can change your life dramatically.
Your chewing ability will be similar to that of natural teeth and you will be able to eat hard foods again.
Implants Can Be Used In Many Ways
Tooth implants are strong, functional, and naturally-looking restorations with roots permanently anchored into the jawbone.
Dental implants have been used for many years to replace one or two missing teeth. They can also provide a framework for bridges and anchored dentures!
What is an implant?
A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. It is comprised of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.
The Titanium Post
—Inserted directly into the jawbone
—Titanium bonds with living bone tissue (also used in knee and hip replacement surgery)
—Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
—Permanently attached to the post
The Restoration (Crown)
—Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
—Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
Dental implants improve your life
It’s good to understand what implants are. But it’s vital to understand what implants do.
