Long Lasting Tooth Replacement In Lancaster

Missing teeth and uncomfortable dentures can just take all the pleasure out of life.

  • You can’t eat what you want and often miss out on the nutrition your body needs.
  • You can’t even taste the food you can eat because the roof of your mouth is covered.
  • You sound different when you talk.
  • Your dentures slip and pinch.
  • Your gums always feel inflamed and sore.
  • Your face looks older and more collapsed as the bone in your jaw shrinks.
  • You feel self-conscious all the time and would rather stay at home than socialize.

If you want more out of life than dentures can offer, ask your Lancaster-area smilebuilderz team about dental implants.

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They allow you to live the way you want to – confidently eating, smiling, laughing, talking, and enjoying all of your everyday activities without worrying about your teeth.

Dental Implants Defined

The explanation is right there in the name! Dental implants are replacement teeth affixed to implanted titanium posts. The posts are placed directly into your jawbone through a surgical process that allows the bone and the implant to heal together and become a stable base for anything from a single tooth replacement or a bridge to a full set of crowns or implant-retained dentures.

Depending on your needs and situation, the process can take anywhere from a few visits to months of planning and healing. But no matter what, once your implants posts have healed into place and your permanent teeth affixed, you will have a smile that’s ready to use and show off anytime, day or night!

Types of Dental Implants

  • Single tooth dental implant – An implant is surgically placed in an opening. After the implant integrates to your bone, it acts as a new “root” for the crown that will replace your missing tooth.
  • Implant Tooth Bridges – This is when an implant-supported bridge is used; one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth. Then the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece.
  • Full Arch Implant – This treatment permanently replaces up to 12 teeth in either jaw, supported on five or six dental implants, in as little as three to 16 weeks.

When it comes to modern dental treatments, there is none more remarkable and innovative than dental implants. Designed to replace teeth that have been lost or removed due to severe disease and decay, dental implants are also now chosen by patients who wish to replace one or more teeth with a natural-looking and fully functional prosthetic.

The Life-Changing Benefits of Dental Implants

If you have been struggling with missing teeth or uncomfortable and ill-fitting dentures, dental implants really can change your life. Because they are fused to your bone, they offer uncompromised stability and a secure fit that feels and functions much less like a prosthetic and much more like whole and natural teeth.

Because dental implants and implant-retained dentures act so much like natural teeth, you can:

  • Throw away all your gooey dental adhesive!
  • Taste, chew, and enjoy your food again—even apples and corn on the cob!
  • Brush, floss, and clean your teeth in your mouth—no more bedside soaking!
  • Kiss, speak, laugh, and sing with total confidence!
  • Stay younger looking longer!
  • Eat out, socialize, and live life to the fullest!

But quality of life isn’t all that improves when you choose dental implants from smilebuilderz. Your health will be improved and protected too. Dental implants:

  • Stop bone resorption, the process of bone loss that happens with every missing tooth
  • Keep your jaw balanced and your airway more open to help prevent TMJ disorder and sleep apnea
  • Help prevent facial collapse
  • Protects gums from infection and other periodontal issues
  • Don’t pinch or slip for far less irritation of your delicate oral tissue
  • Help you eat the nutritious, fresh foods your body needs
  • Give you the confidence to smile—and that does everything from boosting your immune system to lowering your blood pressure!
