A Permanent Solution For Missing Teeth

Adult tooth loss is a common problem. Millions are affected by it. In fact, almost 70% of people over the age of 35 have lost one or more of their adult teeth and 26% of people over 70 have lost all of their natural teeth. If you have lost teeth then there’s a way to get your great looking, healthy smile back again with all-on-four dental implants – an alternative to traditional dentures.

Dental implants: A modern alternative to dentures

Everyone wants a full smile but the idea of dentures might make you cringe. (Imagine keeping fake teeth in a glass by the bedside only putting them in to talk and eat and you get the picture.) Shoreline Periodontics has the perfect solution to give you a beautiful new set of teeth: Dental implants that can be used to replace all of your missing teeth.

Dental implants are one of the closest alternatives to your natural teeth both in appearance and function. Like real teeth you can brush and floss dental implants and they can be used to replace multiple lost teeth with minimal cost and maintenance. In the past, replacing an entire jaw full of teeth individually with implants was time-consuming and costly. Now, with modern dental implant techniques it takes only four implants to replace a full row of teeth in as little as one day. Dental implants offer a permanent, healthy alternative to dentures all at a lower cost than ever before. The best thing is that no one will ever have to know that you once had a gap in your smile.

A healthy smile solution

Backed by years of medical research dental implants are designed to look natural and function exactly like real teeth. After dental implants are surgically placed in the mouth they fuse with existing bone. Like a natural tooth root they stimulate the jawbone preventing bone loss with every bite. Dentures can actually cause bone deterioration because they lie over the gums and don’t penetrate the jaw like dental implants do.

In addition to the greater health benefits, dental implants give you confidence. Eat and talk in groups without the embarrassing slips and clicks that are common problems when wearing dentures. And, with proper hygiene and regular checkups, dental implants will last for decades.
