This is a common question from patients seeking treatment options for one or more lost teeth.
Modern dentistry has both established the importance of maintaining a comfortable smile for a good quality of life and provided options to keep it functioning. Tooth loss can be a devastating event, and losing an entire arch of teeth can be life changing. Both situations can cause embarrassment over appearance, affect speech patterns and force a limited diet.
Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist Dr. Charles Nottingham offers the latest treatment options for tooth replacement, but will recommend the use of dental implants whenever appropriate due to the long term health benefits they provide:
- Secure, custom fit: no concerns about slipping dentures
- Reduce bone loss in the jaw: a common problem after tooth loss, the implanted post mimics a tooth root and helps maintain healthy bone tissue
- Natural look and function: dental implants are made to look and function like a natural tooth- you can’t tell the difference!
- Permanent replacement: when cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dr. Nottingham offers a complete exam and consultation for patients seeking tooth replacement options and will recommend the treatment best suited to your dental health, cosmetic goals and budget.
Replacing lost, or even poor fitting dentures, can often be a life changing experience, giving back lost quality of life. Patients can eat and speak normally with dental implants, once again enjoying a varied, healthy diet and the company of friends while socializing (habits often foregone when teeth have been lost).
The dental implant process is approximately 6 to 9 months, depending upon healing times for each individual patient. Dr. Nottingham will ensure your comfort and high quality standard of care throughout each phase and provide an end result that is comfortable, functional and lasting.
