At McCulloch-Wilson Dental, our mission to help you live your best life with a strong, healthy, beautiful smile would be unfulfilled without our ability to offer you the #1 dentist- and patient-recommended tooth replacement solution available. Ideally, we’ll be able to help you hold onto your natural teeth, but we know life can stray from even the most thoroughly planned prevention-focused paths. For those instances, we’re here to heal the trauma that can accompany tooth loss and offer you the next best thing to natural teeth.
The main reason dental implants are the highest-recommended tooth replacement solution is because they do something traditional methods don’t: they keep your jawbone strong. Instead of sitting on top of your gums, dental implants are surgically placed within your jawbone to mimic your tooth roots. Your tooth roots keep your jawbone from deteriorating, which keeps your facial structure firm, which in turn helps you eat your favorite foods without difficulty and maintain normal speech patterns. The benefits that come with dental implants help illustrate how there is much more to your oral health than meets the eye.
If you’ve been living with dentures that don’t fit your mouth comfortably or experiencing embarrassment because they slip or fall out even after you’ve struggled with adhesives, implants can stabilize your dentures and provide a level of comfort and security that gets you back to enjoying life instead of worrying about your teeth. With implant-supported dentures, you can do things like bite into an apple without fear and laugh without hesitation when you’ve heard a funny story or seen a hilarious video on YouTube.
Dental implant placement is an oral surgery procedure that will be different for each individual. Traditional dental implant treatments require a healing period of about six months before the final restoration can be placed. But with All-on-4 Teeth in a Day, we can place your implants and secure a full set of healing teeth the very same day.
Hybridge is a complete dental implant system, and both the materials and techniques used set these restorations apart from conventional dental implants. From the first surgical procedure to the final insertion of a Hybridge restoration, treatment times can be as short as two weeks! Hybridge may still be a viable solution if you’ve been told you don’t have the bone density for dental implants, and we can secure a set of teeth the same day your implants are placed so you never have to go without teeth.
