While dental implants have been in use for decades, they are still relatively new to patients, and many people don’t know much about the dental implant process. If you are missing numerous teeth, the entire replacement process may seem even more complicated.

4 Benefits of Dental Implants Over Other Tooth Replacement Options

September 2, 2017

Patients who need to replace a single tooth or a full row of teeth may decide to put off making replacement plans out fear that these restoration services will be painful, uncomfortable, or deliver fake looking results. Dental implant supported tooth replacement offers comfortable, long lasting, natural looking dental restorations for patients missing one tooth or all their teeth. Keep reading to learn more about the top four benefits of dental implants over other tooth replacement options.  1 – Maintained Bone Density  Possibly the most important difference between dental implants and other tooth replacement options is that the treatments restore both the roots and crowns of missing teeth. Without stimulation from tooth roots, the supportive jawbone density decreases. Dental implants provide the necessary stimulus to keep the jawbone strong and healthy.  2 – Youthful Facial Shape In addition to providing the necessary stimulus to preserve jawbone density, a dental implant mimics the root system maintaining the soft tissue volume and natural facial shape. Think about the way a denture wearers face begins to sag or cave in over time. This is due to the diminishing soft tissue volume and lack of support to maintain the youthful, smooth facial shape. With an implant supported denture, you’ll maintain a young, healthy appearance.  3 – 95% Success Rate and Growing Number of Procedures  Many patients worry that their dental implant placement will fail because they’ve read horror stories online. However, years of innovations in the materials and methods used during implant restoration have lead to a 95% success rate even as the number of procedures increases by 500,000 cases each year. Additionally, a skilled dentist will take the necessary time to thoroughly examine your smile and review your health history to ensure you’re a good candidate before recommending this treatment option.  4 – Improved Stability & Longevity Because of the natural root-like structure provided by dental implant posts, implant-retained prosthetics offer significantly improved stability. This is especially true for denture wearers who typically experience about 20% restoration of chewing function compared with 70% or more that’s possible with an implant denture. Additionally, this improved stability leads to a longer lasting restoration that needs to be refitted or replaced less often than other dental prosthetics like removable dentures.

Achieve Complete Oral Health with Neuromuscular Dentistry in Colorado Springs, CO

February 8, 2015

462039415Do you frequently experience headaches, jaw pain, and stiffness in your neck or upper back? Perhaps you wake up in the mornings with facial tenderness or a heavy feeling in your jaw and head. These are common symptoms of a condition called temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ disorder. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer through the pain of TMJ disorder any longer. With extensive training at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), Dr. Gregory Solich is your premier destination for comprehensive oral healthcare, including neuromuscular dentistry.

Benefits of Neuromuscular Dentistry with Dr. Solich

Neuromuscular dentistry encompasses all aspects of oral health, including the teeth and the jaw, as well as the muscles, ligaments, and joints that allow our mouths to function. When the top and bottom teeth are improperly aligned, the result is a significant imbalance within the neuromuscular system. Patients affected by this problem often suffer from bruxism (teeth grinding), though they may not realize that they’re engaging in this damaging behavior at all. The same can be said of jaw clenching, an activity that places an inordinate amount of pressure on the teeth and muscles of the jaw.

Following diagnosis of a misaligned bite, treatment to restore the balance of the jaw and teeth begins. Dr. Solich uses only the latest in neuromuscular dentistry technology, including Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation (TENS), to promote total relaxation of the jaw muscles. The proper position of the jaw is measured and noted, as is the status of the temporomandibular joints. Treatment may include the use of a custom oral appliance, the rebuilding of the dentition, orthodontic treatment, and more.
