Changing Lives through Implant Dentistry

Dental implants are a restorative treatment option that is considered the gold standard for tooth replacement. They offer key benefits for long term dental health and the most natural-looking results. With a 98% success rate among current patients, implants replace a missing tooth above and below the gum line. The implanted post acts as a prosthetic tooth root and serves to stabilize bone tissue in the jaw to prevent shrinkage and changes in your appearance and your bite.

Today’s dentures can be either a removable cosmetic denture or a dental-implant secured denture. Modern cosmetic dentures have experienced vast improvements in the quality of materials and placement techniques. However, it is important to keep in mind that removable dentures can move or shift over time and make it difficult to eat and speak with confidence.

When secured with dental implants, dentures are able to support the jaw structure and prevent further bone loss. An implant-secured denture does not require daily adhesives and allows patients to enjoy their best possible quality of life. They can also be brushed and maintained like your natural teeth.

What Are Hybrid Dentures?

Hybrid Teeth and Hybrid Dentures are artificial teeth supported on dental implants. They have really come into their own over the last number of years. They provide people with a new level of dental comfort and improve overall health, well-being, and happiness for a fraction of the cost previously available. They truly are a life-changer.

All-On-4, Teeth-In-A-Day, and Hybridge® are just a few brand names for Hybrid Dentures. More and more implant manufacturers, organizations, and dentists are coming up with their own names and slight variations to jump into this field. For example, BioHorizons has “Teeth Xpress” and Zimmer Dental has “RevitaliZe.”

Sometimes it’s not as important to worry about what brand name procedure is being performed, but rather who is performing it. Make sure that the surgeon and the restorative dentist have the experience with these types of procedures and surgeries. Also, if the surgeon and restorative dentist are not the same person, its important to know that the team communicates well with each other. Dr. Goldberg performs both parts and has the experience: only rarely must he refer to another doctor.

Candidates for these procedures include:

  • People who live in constant dental pain from recurring infections
  • People who require so much dental care that the costs are exorbitant
  • People who are tired of the endless cycle of dental treatment that has to be redone over and over
  • People who have dentures that move and hurt, and want to eliminate them
  • People who understand jaw bone will continue to deteriorate and disappear as the years progress, and they want to decrease or eliminate this process

It is important to remember this type of care is an investment in your health. Dental insurance covers very little. You will not see the cost-effectiveness over the short-term: this is a long-term investment. The savings comes into play when you realize root canals, fillings, crowns, bridges, and dentures do not have to be redone and replaced.
