Have you been struggling with the emotional and physical challenges of tooth loss? The inability to chew or speak properly combined with changes in your appearance can be difficult to deal with. Perhaps you have dentures and are unhappy with them. The instability of dentures, as well as the diet restrictions they impose, can adversely affect your quality of life. To restore the beauty of your smile and the quality of your life, Drs. Fulton and Sargent often recommend permanent dental implants. Dental implants offer a permanent, beautiful restoration that allows you to feel like your old self again.
While your teeth were meant to last a lifetime, tooth loss is actually quite common. Extractions, severe periodontal disease, bone loss, osteoporosis, decay, injury and resorption can all result in tooth loss. Fortunately, there are several options for replacement. Dentures offer an affordable, removable option that many find too unstable. Implant supported dentures combine the benefits of dentures and implants giving you convenience with stability. Dental implants offer permanent, durable tooth replacement that looks and functions just like your natural teeth do. Dental implants can help you regain your ability to speak clearly and chew comfortably. They can restore the beauty of your smile and no one will ever know they are not your real teeth, unless you tell them.
