Types of Dentures
Back to Dentures And Partials Home Page
Adults have been losing permanent teeth since the beginning of time. In the past, when technology and hygiene were inferior to what we know of today, tooth loss was a dental problem with no solid solution. Archeological evidence has shown us that our ancestors attempted to replace missing teeth with everything from shells to the teeth of the deceased. Dentures, as we know them, were not created until well into modern history.
The dentures designed and fabricated by today's dentists are more beautiful than ever, allowing men and women to enjoy natural looking smiles even when all teeth have been lost. The advances that have led to attractive porcelain dentures have also led to alternatives to dentures, as well. Your dentist near Walnut Creek provides tooth replacement treatment to best suit your unique needs, with dental implant treatment as an option worth discussing.
In the last thirty years, the way we handle the loss of permanent teeth has changed significantly, improving outcome in many ways. The development of dental implants has brought about the opportunity to create a permanent replacement structure that closely resembles natural teeth and their roots. This is where dental implants differ the most from conventional dentures, and why they are so superior.
Implants are solitary prosthetics that are strategically positioned in the jawbone. Over the course of a few months, healthy jawbone tissue naturally fuses around the implants placed by your dentist, solidifying them in the permanent jaw structure. The process of integration into the jawbone sets the stage for natural function unlike any other form of tooth replacement.
Dr. Alkhoury is an experienced dentist who provides excellent restorative care to patients of all ages. Dental implants provide the ideal solution to missing teeth. This form of treatment can be used to replace just one tooth, a few teeth, or can act as a base for your denture appliance. More than ever, tooth loss is a dental problem with excellent solutions. In our Brentwood dental office, patients can even experience the replacement of teeth within a single day, with our Teeth in a Day process.
