The standard pop culture image of dentures sliding out of an elderly person’s mouth is a little distorted, though not unfounded given the way things used to work in earlier eras of restorative dentistry. Fortunately, when you come to North Oaks Dental looking for tooth replacement options in Royal Oak, you’ll see right away how differently we remedy missing teeth nowadays. Keep reading to hear more about it, and then give us a call at 248-220-7021 to schedule your dental implants consultation with our team.
You’ll Have Options With Us
It’s kind of a big deal that our Michigan dental office has four distinct ways of replacing missing teeth:
- Dental Bridges
- Dental Implants
- Mini Dental Implants
You see, many dental offices can offer bridges and dentures, but few offices are qualified to offer dental implants. As it happens, Dr. Daboul is one of the most highly trusted dental implant providers around. He has years of hands-on experience, and he has even written a book about the dental implants we provide here.
Implants Are The Most Durable Solution
Here’s something to consider: conventional dentures rest on top of your gums, but dental implants are placed directly into the jawbone, becoming one with your body. As such, they create a strong anchor allowing you to eat whatever you want again and regain your overall health. And they can last for decades with proper care.
Implants Are Versatile
Once your implant is in place, we can restore it with a number of options including crowns, bridges, or even full arches of dentures. If you’re already wearing dentures, we can simply place a few implants around the arch and then snap the dentures onto the implants. Snapping your dentures on implants will improve your chewing ability and eliminate the need for goopy denture adhesives.
Implants Boost Your Appearance
Living without a full set of teeth won’t be good for the look of your smile. The problem is annoying, there’s no doubt, but missing teeth cause more trouble than that.
When teeth are lost, your jawbone will begin to recede. This recession will cause the other remaining teeth in the mouth to shift around. What’s more, when the jawbone recedes, your face changes shape.
People without teeth often have wrinkles around the mouth and caved-in cheeks. This change unfortunately makes folks look much older than they really are. However, our dental implants can preserve your jawbone and help you keep a more youthful appearance.
