New Smile, New You
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. They are designed to provide a permanent solution that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth. They consist of three parts: the implant post, the abutment, and the dental crown.
The dental crown is the visible part of the implant, and it looks and functions like your natural teeth. It is made of high-quality materials such as porcelain or zirconia and will be color-matched to your existing teeth for a natural-looking smile.
At Port Orange Family Dentistry, our top-class dentists use high-tech technology and techniques to ensure that your implant procedure is as comfortable, safe, and effective as possible. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about how dental implants can benefit you.
Dental Implants VS Dentures
If you are missing some teeth, you may be wondering whether dental implants or dentures are the best options for you. While both can improve your oral health, there are some key differences between the two.
Dental implants are permanent artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into your jawbone. Once we fuse them with your bone tissue, they provide a stable foundation for a dental crown or bridge. Implants are a popular choice because they are durable, and look and feel like natural teeth. They also help preserve your jawbone and prevent bone loss, which can occur when you have missing teeth.
Dentures, on the other hand, are removable prosthetic teeth that are designed to fit over your gums. They can replace all or some of your missing teeth and are typically held in place with suction or adhesive. While they are a more affordable option than dental implants, they can sometimes be uncomfortable and can slip out of place while eating or speaking.
At our Port Orange practice, we understand that every patient has unique needs and preferences. That's why we offer both dental implants and dentures, as well as other tooth replacement options like bridges and partial dentures. Call us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about which option suits you best.
