Dr. Ike Lans, cosmetic dentist in Ashburn, VA is helping denture patients find a better alternative to their current oral appliances through dental implants. With dental implants, Dr. Lans can create permanent, natural-looking smiles for denture patients that will last throughout their lifetime.
Dental implants are the most advanced technology available in restorative dentistry. While dental implants are often used to replace a single missing adult tooth that has been lost because of decay, injury, or health problems, implants also provide an excellent alternative for denture patients who wish to restore the entire top and bottom arches of their smile with a more permanent solution.
“Dental implants really are life changing for each patient who receives them, but this is especially the case with denture patients,” said Dr. Lans. “Once their dental implants are completed, former denture patients re-discover a whole new side of life that was lost with their teeth, like eating whatever they want, smiling confidently, and finally being able to brush their teeth normally again.”
An estimated 20 million Americans currently wear some form of denture or partial denture. And while these oral appliances help to restore partial function for everyday tasks like eating and speaking, they still fail to perform as natural teeth would, leaving patients seeking a better option.
The structure of a dental implant is designed to be similar to a natural tooth. The implant itself is a small screw-like stud that is surgically inserted into the lower or upper jawbone of the patient in the void of the missing tooth. This screw is often made with titanium, which is a hypoallergenic, extremely sturdy metal that allows bone cells to naturally fuse with it. This implant is given several weeks to heal and is then attached to a natural-looking artificial porcelain crown that provides the appearance and function of a natural tooth. As a completed unit, the dental implant is just as strong as a natural tooth and performs like one, too.
Dental implants also help to keep the surrounding jaw bone and gum tissues live and viable, whereas with dentures, these tissues and cells go dormant and begin to resorb. With dental implants, patients have the best chance at keeping their oral health in top condition for the remainder of their lifetime.
