The sad truth is that over 70% of people over 35 have developed some degree of gum
disease. If left untreated, the gums begin to recede. Eventually, the teeth loosen
and dislodge from your jaw. Call the number at the bottom of this screen and let
us give you a check up.
Why should you check things now?
Because in its early stages, gum disease has no symptoms. However, if a development
is underway, we can easily find and fix it before it becomes a problem. With proper
care, your teeth should last a lifetime. You’ll enjoy a satisfying side effect:
the well-being of your entire body relates dynamically to the health of your teeth
and gums. So, not only will your mouth thank you, your whole body will as well.
Missing Teeth and the Marvel of Implants
Perhaps, on the other hand, it’s too late to catch it early or you have had an accident.
You are missing one or more teeth.
There is still hope. The fancy name for it: Implantology. In simple terms…we plant
new teeth in your jaw bone. Are they as good as your real teeth? To be honest, we
would have to say there is nothing better than your own teeth, healthy and happy,
living in your mouth for your whole life. However, you won’t be able to tell the
difference between your real teeth and what we call an implant. Here’s the truth.
If a century from now someone were to unearth your bones, our implants would still
be in position right there next to your teeth in your jaw.
Are Dental Implants a New Development?
Yes and no. The very predictable treatment you receive today is the result of ever-improving
procedures that began some 35 years ago in Sweden. Today, the technology of modern
Implantology rivals the precision of a fine Swiss watch. But the history of attempts
to replace natural teeth with implants goes way back. Pure gold tooth replacements
have been discovered in the tombs of both the ancient Phoenicians and the Romans
Why Not Just Wear Dentures?
Ask the People Who Do.
- 31% with partial dentures don’t wear them.
- 29% with full dentures can eat only soft or mashed foods.
- 80% would rather have their own teeth or some rigid substitute.
They will tell you they miss having a confident, attractive smile, and the ability
to eat anything they choose. In some cases, overclosure, pursed lips, deep wrinkles,
and jaw joint pain become the norm. You have probably seen it and you probably don’t
want that for yourself.
Do Dental Implants Work?
Yes! Thanks to new technique and materials, your chance of a wonderfully successful
outcome is better than 90%.
This is How They Work…
You receive, through a small incision in the gum, a cylindrical-shaped, titanium
implant. Three to six months later the implant has become fixed and a tooth supporting
fixture is fastened down into the implant cylinder. You feel like you’ve been given
back your natural teeth. There is no movement. There is no loosening. It’s you again,
good as new.
