Trust Your Replacement Teeth with Dental Implants

dental_crowns&bridges_1 Advanced Dental Center of Florence, SC | Dr. Joseph Griffin

At one time, dentures were your best option for replacing a missing row of teeth. They weren’t perfect, but they were better than nothing.

Today, people are aware of the problems that come with traditional dentures. Thankfully, you can do better, and Advanced Dental Center can show you how.

Today, we want to discuss the benefits of getting implant-supported dentures, so your replacement teeth feel and function more like the real thing.

Call our Florence, SC office at 843-627-4076 to schedule an appointment to find out what implants could do for you and your oral health.

Why Dentures Are Difficult

To understand why traditional dentures can cause new problems, you need to know that tooth loss typically leads to bone loss in your jaw.

When you have teeth, your roots press into the bone when you bite and chew. Your jaw responds to that pressure by making new bone tissue, which keeps your jaw healthy and strong. When you lose teeth, you no longer have that connection to your jawbone, and without it, your jaw loses size without new bone tissue.

Dentures rest outside of your gums, which means they don’t provide enough stimulation to encourage new bone growth. As your jaw shrinks, this change how well — or how poorly — your dentures fit in your mouth.

This is why dentures become looser with time, require more adhesive, and occasionally need to be refitted or replaced. All of this can leave you wondering whether you can or should try to eat certain foods or worried about when your teeth may fall out while you are talking.

Prevent Problems with Implants

In restorative dentistry, few things have had the impact that dental implants have.

Modern implants were developed to replace the roots of your lost teeth. This lets them do two important things. First, they are used to support dentures and to keep them securely in place. Second, they stimulate your jaw in a way that is very similar to natural roots. As a result, they can prevent the kind of bone loss described above.

With implants, you can feel like you have a full set of natural teeth once again.

And innovation has made implants better and given more patients the opportunity to enjoy those benefits. New types of implants — such as mini implants — mean people can still get them even if they have experienced some bone loss. New techniques, like All-on-4® make it possible to get implants and temporary dentures on the same day.

Our team at Advanced Dental Center is proud to offer all these services at our practice. We’ve seen the kind of impact implants have had on our patients’ oral health as well as their quality of life.

Live Better With Implants

You should be able to eat what you want when you want. You should feel confident about speaking with other people and sharing your opinion.

Getting dental implants at our Florence dental office can give you the confidence that you can do those things.
