Old-fashioned bridges are anchored to existing teeth that have been ground down and then crowned to provide support. Plus, traditional crown and bridgework typically lasts about 10 years before it must be replaced. Dentures that rely on suction or over-the-counter adhesive to stay in place can irritate your mouth, prevent you from fully tasting your food, and cause you to steer clear of foods that dentures just can’t handle. Additionally, conventional bridges and dentures don’t stop the bone loss that occurs when the chewing forces of natural teeth are lost. Implants are different. They stop jawbone atrophy and hold teeth securely in place. You can choose from a removable denture or one that’s fixed in place. Replacement teeth supported with dental implants let you eat what you want without fear of slippage and experience a return to good oral health. Call our office to learn more.
Dental implant research began in the 1950s, and the first dental implant was placed in 1965. Since then, millions of people around the world have experienced the life-changing benefits of this remarkable restorative procedure. The titanium used for the implant posts is surgical grade and biocompatible with your jawbone. This means that your bone tissue welcomes the implant posts as a natural part of your smile, with no rejection. A short procedure involving safe IV sedation is all that’s needed to surgically place the posts. Dr. Tye has performed this surgery countless times over the course of his career. You can trust in his experience, expertise, and knowledge. Contact our office for more information.
