Tooth Replacement For The 21st Century

Fayetteville tooth implant supported dentures

Not everything was better back in the good old days. Take dentures, for instance. They’ve improved many lives, but there is a better option from The Fayetteville Dentist: implant-supported dentures.

There are two types of implant anchored dentures: removable and permanent. No adhesive is required for either system.

With the permanent type, screw retentions are anchored in the jaw to serve as attachment points for the denture. Permanent implant-supported dentures are very stable.

Removable implant anchored dentures have a locator attachment that allows the wearer to snap the appliance in place. Some patients prefer this type, because they can remove them at night for cleaning.

Implant-supported dentures from The Fayetteville Dentist are life-changing! We also offer complete general and cosmetic dentistry services. Call us to schedule an appointment today!

Innovative Implants For Confident Smiles

tooth implants Fayetteville

Many people have experienced a boost in self-confidence after dental implant treatment at The Fayetteville Dentist.

How Do Missing Teeth Affect Your Life?

Missing teeth can impair your ability to speak and eat. Extensive tooth loss can make it difficult to eat a healthy diet. Dental implants can relieve pain, correct bite troubles, and improve function.

While conventional dentures are preferable to a completely toothless mouth, they can cause almost as many problems as they solve. Many denture wearers limit social activity because they are afraid their dentures will move around in their mouth. Dentures can also irritate gums and bring about painful sores. And they can make it hard to taste food.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. They fuse with the bone to provide a solid support. One implant can support one replacement tooth, while several can support a dental bridge or full arch.

Dental implants from The Fayetteville Dentist are state-of-the-art in tooth replacement. We have extended evening and Saturday hours that fit any busy schedule. We also have an office in Hope Mills. Call for an appointment today!

Missing Teeth? Dentures And Implants Restore Smiles

Missing Teeth In Fayetteville? Dentures And Implants Restore Smiles

If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, The Fayetteville Dentist can help you find the restoration procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for complete or partial dentures or dental implants.

A removable replacement for missing teeth, dentures can be made in advance and positioned as soon as the natural teeth are removed. Our dental lab creates dentures that look just like attractive, healthy teeth.

If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.

Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving.

Another alternative is dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed.

Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.

The Fayetteville Dentist offers dental implants and dentures. Call our office to schedule an appointment today.

Look As Young As You Feel By Replacing Missing Teeth

tooth implants Fayetteville

A wise person once said that everyone wants a long life, but no one wants to get old. Yet it happens. While some challenges that come with aging can’t be avoided, others can. At The Fayetteville Dentist in Fayetteville NC, we help patients of all ages with their dental health issues.

Gaps In Your Smile?

Many dental problems common among retirees such as missing teeth, gum recession, tooth damage, and yellowed enamel, can be remedied.

Some people think losing their teeth as they age is inevitable. It isn’t. With a proper dental health routine at home and regular cleanings and checkups in our office (just like you’ve always done, we hope) your teeth can last a lifetime.

Changes

But the mouth does undergo changes as we age. The nerves in teeth may get smaller, to the point where teeth are not as sensitive to cavities and other issues. That means you may not feel as much tooth pain from a cavity as you once did. Regular checkups become that much more important.

If you do lose one or more of your teeth, dental implants may be right for you. Implants can:

  • Support a single artificial tooth
  • Support a set of dentures

To find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, call The Fayetteville Dentist in Fayetteville NC. We offer a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry. Call for an appointment today!

Change Your Life In 4 Steps

cosmetic dental and implants

Healthy teeth that work as nature intended are crucial for a high quality of life and overall health. At The Fayetteville Dentist, we know people folks with dentures know what we mean.

There is no question that dentures are preferable to a completely toothless mouth, but they are not issue free. Your mouth performs numerous basic functions, each of which can be impaired by the inconveniences of dentures.

Dentures can make it difficult to chew and taste food. It’s embarrassing to talk when they are slipping around in your mouth and laughing can dislodge them entirely. They can even make it hard to breathe—and it doesn’t get more basic than that.

Even if you have had dentures for many years, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants are an exremely versatile substitute for dentures. They can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor over dentures.

Dental implants from The Fayetteville Dentist can restore your smile, and restore your life. We have extended evening and weekend hours. We also have an office in Hope Mills. Schedule an appointment today.

What Does A Missing Tooth Say About You?

Fayetteville Mini-ImplantsWhen you meet someone who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you wonder if they were in an accident? Do you make assumptions about their income, or level of education? It isn’t fair, but we are often judged (and misjudged) by our appearance. If a missing tooth is an issue for you, The Fayetteville Dentist can help with a dental implant.

Here is a personal story from a woman who lost a tooth:

I lost my job and along with it my dental insurance, then a month later, one of my front teeth. It has been very hard to find work…. and I know the missing tooth has cost me several jobs.

So a missing tooth can be a big deal.

Dental implants not only restore oral health, they restore self-confidence. Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Studies have shown that after more than 20 years, the vast majority of dental implants placed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons continue to function at peak performance. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Not all cosmetic dental procedures are as extreme as dental implants. There are many minimally-invasive remedies for unattractive smiles. To find out more, call The Fayetteville Dentist for a consultation. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry.

Mini Implants May Be Right For You

How Mini Dental Implants Can Help Your Smile in 27713

Though they are not as well known as traditional dental implants, mini implants are also being used successfully by The Fayetteville Dentist to improve smiles. Like their larger diameter counterparts, mini implants can support a restoration for one or more missing teeth or replace a bridge or fixed denture. Denture wearers benefit significantly from these slip-free dental implants that are anchored securely in the jaw bone.

In some cases, a patient is unable to receive traditional full-size dental implants due to insufficient bone thickness. There are also mini implant patients who are not able to undergo dental implant surgery due to health issues. These patients are often excellent candidates for the mini version.

The placement of toothpick-size mini dental implants can sometimes be done in one dental visit. The placement usually requires no incisions or stitches. Recovery time, if needed, is commonly very short. Most patients are able to eat dinner that evening.

Don’t let the word “mini” fool you; your smile can receive a maximum upgrade with mini dental implants.

Dental implants are part of The Fayetteville Dentist’s general and cosmetic surgery. Schedule a consultation with us today.

Great Achievements: Dental Implants in Fayetteville NC

Dental implants are one of the greatest advances in the field of dentistry. They are an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jaw of a patient, to replace a missing root. The implant, in turn, can support an artificial tooth. Dental implants are available from The Fayetteville Dentist.

The idea of a dental implant actually goes back at least a thousand years. But implants as we know them today date back to the early 1950s. One of their great benefits is that they help to prevent bone loss, which is common in people who have lost one of their natural teeth.

In practical terms, the great thing about implants is that they function like a natural tooth. The implant is typically made of titanium, and they fuse to the patient’s jaw. They integrate so well with the bone that the body does not recognize them as a foreign object, and try to reject them.

Dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth, or they can be used as anchors for dentures. Dentures may be more affordable, but because they are removable, most patients find that they can be unreliably loose, and can also affect their ability to enjoy food. These are not issues with implant-supported dentures.

Dental implants from The Fayetteville Dentist in Fayetteville NC are the closest thing to getting back a natural tooth. Find out more by scheduling a consultation today. We also provide general and cosmetic dentistry, and pediatric dentistry.

What You See And What You Don’t

invisible braces Durham

If you have had restorations, orthodontia, or a complete cosmetic dental smile makeover, you want people to notice the final outcome – your unforgettable smile. There is a lot, however, that is going on behind the scenes. Today’s post talks about three critical cosmetic dentistry components from The Fayetteville Dentist that are not readily apparent when you smile, but are often necessary for the successful result.

Invisible Braces
Not everyone in Durham wants to flash a metal smile while their teeth are being straightened. Clear braces from Invisalign keep your secret safe because it is nearly impossible to see them while they are being worn.

White Fillings

If you have metal fillings, you might be interested in replacing them with composite fillings that match your surrounding teeth. You can’t undo the decay, but you can make the metal disappear.

Tooth Implants
A dental implant is a metal (usually titanium) rod implanted into the bone to replace the missing root after a tooth extraction. The crown and supporting structure are securely and permanently attached to the post. Titanium is super strong and well tolerated by the jaw bone. When the final crown is placed, your new tooth is indistinguishable from the others.

The Fayetteville Dentist provides general and cosmetic dentistry, and procedures such as wisdom teeth extraction. Schedule an appointment with us today.
