With sedation dentistry, we can help you gain full peace of mind and body so that you can receive the dental work you need – and deserve.
Why would are dental implants preferable to other tooth replacement solutions?
As a permanent version of replacement teeth, dental implants are ultra-secure and can look just like natural teeth. They also help deter bone loss and can be used to secure many different types of restorations, not just single crowns. Dentures and bridges can greatly benefit from the stabilization that dental implants provide. Care and upkeep consist of the same brushing and flossing routine as is recommended for natural teeth, so your home hygiene doesn't change. With proper care, dental implants can last for many years.
I'm worried that my dentures will be uncomfortable or painful. Should I be?
At first, wearing your dentures may feel strange or awkward. Rest assured that this is completely normal, and you will soon become used to wearing them and it will be second nature. Dr. Parker offers functionally impressed, soft lined dentures, so your new dentures will provide optimal comfort and a precision fit from the very first wear.
How long do dentures last?
The lifespan of your dentures is dependent on how well you care for them and your oral health. Over time, it's common for dentures to undergo normal wear and tear. Dr. Parker advises most patients to bring in their dentures for a relining every two years or so. We always want you to be experiencing the best of what your dentures have to offer, so if you have a question about the performance or comfort of your prosthetic, please contact us so we can give you the best information and assistance possible.
