With many denture patients that we see, we find that their lives are more or less controlled by their dentures—how they feel about their smile, what food they can eat, and all the effort involved in securing and maintaining them.
Midlothian, VA (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Dr. Robert Sorenson of Midlothian Family Dentistry is now helping patients who wear removable dentures find a better, permanent solution for a near-natural smile. Using state-of-the-art dental implant technology, Dr. Sorenson is able to provide patients who have a single or multiple missing teeth with a better alternative that looks, feels, and performs just like a natural tooth.
“With many denture patients that we see, we find that their lives are more or less controlled by their dentures—how they feel about their smile, what food they can eat, and all the effort involved in securing and maintaining them,” said Dr. Robert Sorenson, dental implants dentist in Midlothian, VA. “With dental implants, we’re really giving our patients their lives back. After their procedure is complete, their smile is even better than before their tooth loss began.”
Estimates show that about 20 million adults in the U.S. rely on full or partial removable dentures as a result of tooth loss due to injury, decay, or age. Unfortunately, many denture wearers struggle with the fit and security of their dentures while using bonding pastes and strips. Additionally, dentures restrict the types of foods a patient can consume, and also can inhibit their ability to chew correctly which can have adverse health effects. Many denture patients also suffer from resorption of their jaw bone which can affect facial structure and appearance.
With dental implants like those Dr. Sorenson provides, patients are able to preserve vital jaw bone density and enjoy unrestricted diets due to the strength of the implants. Because dental implants act just like normal teeth, cleaning and flossing regimens are the same as a natural smile.
To complete the dental implant procedure, Dr. Sorenson implants small titanium studs into the jawbone of the patient, which are then given several months to heal and fuse to the bone. After the healing process, Dr. Sorenson attaches porcelain crowns to the studs. In their complete form, dental implants mimic the natural structure of the tooth. Dr. Sorenson works closely with each patient to determine the size, shape, and color of the porcelain crown attachments to design a smile that fits their preferences.
In addition to providing dental implants in Midlothian, VA, Dr. Sorenson provides his patients with a variety of other dental services including periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, sedation dentistry, oral surgery, and more. At Midlothian Family Dentistry, he works along Dr. William Monacell and Dr. Navneet Sekhon, both highly qualified dental professionals.
Dr. Sorenson received his DDS degree from the Medical College of Virginia and subsequently served in the United States Navy while assisting with the American Red Cross. He is one of the most highly trained providers of cosmetic dental implants in Midlothian, VA, having received several awards from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons as well as recognitions for outstanding achievement in implant dentistry.
