Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. No more need to deal with uncomfortable dentures or bridges-with permanent dental implants, a person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat and smile with effortless confidence. The teeth look and feel completely natural.
Dental implants can support replacements for one tooth, several teeth, or even all of the teeth. Dental implants allow outstanding results in both appearance and function of the new teeth.
The implants themselves are titanium cylinders which are surgically implanted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts are then attached to the implant. Protruding through the gums, these posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
TDC offers single, multiple and full arch replacements.
Mini implants are similar to regular dental implants, but are exceptionally smaller, often less than 2 millimeters in diameter. Despite their size, mini implants can effectively serve as long-term support structures for crowns, bridges and dentures. They can be implanted through a minimally invasive procedure and effectively spaced to provide support and ease for denture wearers.
Denture Comfort™ is an FDA-approved procedure that helps keeps dentures firmly in place and keeps them from loosening over time while providing gentle cushioning for your gums. Not only will they be far more comfortable-you can even wear them while sleeping-the procedure also dramatically slows degeneration of your ridge, the primary cause of loose dentures. While many patients must have their dentures relined every few years, you can avoid that hassle with this one hour procedure that installs several implants and a soft gum cushion to hold the dentures permanently in place. With Denture Comfort™ there's finally a reason to smile.
Overdentures are full dentures that are firmly anchored to the jaw so they don't slip around or stick together when you talk or eat. They can make life a lot easier for patients who are missing all of their natural teeth (what dentists call "edentulous" patients). Overdentures are like normal full dentures except instead of relying on the gums and other tissues of the mouth for support, they are fixed in place using either the preserved tooth roots or a pair of permanent dental implants and may also include a Hader Bar, a plastic bar that allows for free movement of the dentures while they are in place. Implant-supported overdentures are highly effective, with a success rate of more than 95% over 10 years. Not only are they very comfortable, they also help preserve the jaw bone-and best of all, you don't have to worry about eating chewy, sticky or tough foods anymore.
My teeth were terribly discolored from years of smoking. Dr. Zatcoff and his staff helped me decide on the best treatment plan for me. My laminates are beautiful and no one believes me when I tell them their not mine.
Two years ago I had a terrible accident and lost my front teeth. The staff at TDC made me feel at ease and helped me through a very difficult time. My dental implants look and feel just like my own teeth. I am so happy to say I can still smile and I owe it all to them.
My hygienist suggested sealants which I thought was something kids get. I took her advice and am so glad I did! I haven’t had a cavity in over 3 years!
I never thought I'd get my gum disease under control- but with laser gum treatment, I found it so pleasurable and painless. The periodontist is wonderful and I have kept up on my maintenance with comfort and ease.
