When it comes to big improvements in dentistry, there’s no doubt it: we’ve made incredible strides in tooth replacement over the last couple of decades. Today, missing teeth can be restored far more comfortably and affordably than ever before. These aren’t your grandmother’s dentures — keep reading to learn about today’s dentures and dental implants in Sunnyvale from Dr. George T. Philip.
Dental Implants in Sunnyvale: Nature’s Rival
Patients missing one or more teeth can greatly benefit from dental implants, also known as nature’s rival for their incredible replacement ability. Dental implants provide a prosthetic root for each replacement tooth (typically a dental crown). That’s something that other options just don’t do — and a factor that also promotes good oral health.
A typical candidate for dental implants is someone who has a healthy, intact jawbone, and who enjoys good oral and overall health. Patients suffering from gum disease or conditions which affect the immune system, like diabetes, are typically not successful candidates for traditional dental implants.
Replace Teeth With Dentures in Sunnyvale
Today, Dr. Philip can create dentures that are far more customized, comfortable, stable and better-looking than dentures of the past. These devices are expertly designed to fit your unique mouth, ensuring they won’t slip around while you’re eating or speaking, freeing you from a considerable amount of discomfort, stress and anxiety.
Good candidates for non-implant supported dentures are those who have lost a considerable amount of jawbone due to their missing teeth, or those whose poor oral or overall health will not promote crucial healing after the implant procedure.
Implant-Supported Dentures Combine the Benefits of Both
Additionally, dentures can be supported by dental implants. It’s a powerful combination — these implant-supported dentures give you the security you want, and provide your jaw the stimulation it needs to stay healthy.
Benefits of implant-supported dentures include the following:
- Restored ability to eat, speak and chew with ease
- A healthy jaw that prevents further tooth loss
- A totally secure tooth replacement that never needs to be refitted
- When cared for properly, implant-supported dentures can last for a lifetime
