Missing teeth or loose dentures? Have you heard about the benefits of dental implants compared to dentures?
Those who no longer have a complete set of teeth can now face each day with more confidence. Everyday life for individuals with missing teeth can become quite a challenge, not only because it affects one’s ability to bite or chew food, but also because missing teeth tends to lower one’s self-esteem.
“Dental implants can restore more than just teeth. They can restore a patient’s self-confidence and self-esteem,” states Jay Elliott, D.D.S. “Although dentures may be a tooth loss treatment for many, more and more individuals are finding dental implants to be a better alternative. Dental implants can be permanent, comfortable and provide a better sense of security. They can also allow individuals to eat lots of foods they couldn’t with old-fashioned dentures.”
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made of titanium, which acts as an anchor for replacement teeth. Unlike dentures that tend to wobble or have a risk of falling down while eating – causing embarrassment in some cases – dental implants have been proven to be very stable. And since dental implants are placed right into the jawbone, they feel like real teeth.
By having dental implants, individuals who no longer have a complete set of teeth can regain their confidence and enjoy their everyday lives once again. Implants can also prevent other problems with the mouth and jaw that may arise due to the gaps, and avoid oral health problems.
Dr. Elliott has over 30 years of experience, and has chosen to focus his practice on dental implants to help patients regain their smiles.
It is important for the public to understand that the American Dental Association does not recognize implant dentistry as a specialty. While many dentists believe that it should be a specialty in its own right, it currently is not. Dr. Elliott has completed a three-year graduate program in implant dentistry from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. His training combines the most advanced specialized education with extensive clinical experience. As a result of this training, Dr. Elliott provides all phases of the implant treatment himself, from placement of the implants to the final teeth. While other dentists might do the surgical placement of the implant or the cosmetic restoration of the crown, Dr. Elliott is one of the few dentists in Texas who can perform both.
