Say goodbye to loose, wobbly dentures and say hello to stability, functionality and unrestricted diet!
Tooth loss is devastating not only to your appearance but also to your oral health. This is a big reason why it is important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible to ensure other issues such as teeth shifting, periodontal disease and further tooth loss do not occur.
Traditionally, if teeth were lost they were replaced with dentures, partial dentures or bridges. Unfortunately, these treatments did not address the missing tooth root and as a result the jawbone (no longer stimulated by the tooth root) would dissolve, leading to bone loss, tooth loss and changes in your dento-facial esthetics.
Dr. Saylor uses a revolutionary treatment that provides a long-term solution to tooth loss…
Dental implants are tiny titanium screws that are biocompatible with your natural jawbone material and are inserted into the jaw at the site of tooth loss. Over a period of months your jawbone will heal around the implant – effectively fusing with it to create a strong tooth root alternative. Dr. Saylor will then place a dental prosthetic over the implant in the form of a crown, bridge or implant-supported denture so you can gain full esthetics and functionality of your smile!
The advantages of dental implants…
Dental implants are revolutionizing the way in which Dr. Saylor can treat tooth loss, and host a wide range of benefits such as:
- They look, feel and function just like a natural tooth
- They are completely comfortable once healed
- They allow you to eat whatever you like – no more loose dentures restricting your diet!
- Eat, talk, laugh and speak with total confidence
- Stimulation of the jawbone, preventing resorption
- Providing structural support to the face and teeth
