Denver, NC (PRWEB) January 16, 2015
Denver, NC residents looking for a healthy and permanent solution for missing teeth can now visit Dr. G. Monte McCourt at West LKN Dentistry for modern dental implants. Implants provide a stable and long-term tooth replacement because they are secured in the alveolar bone just like natural teeth. Implants help prevent issues with bite alignment or bone density loss, and they offer the same functionality and care regimen as natural teeth.
Dr. McCourt often recommends implants because they are considered a healthier tooth replacement than unsecured prosthetics, such as dentures, and prosthetics that anchor to other teeth, such as bridges. Dental implants do not harm neighboring teeth, and they even help prevent teeth from shifting into the gaps that missing teeth have left. Implants help stabilize jawbone density because they mimic the stimulation that natural teeth provide. Dr. McCourt reminds patients that with tooth replacements such as dentures, bone density loss can continue unchecked. Severe bone density loss can cause changes in facial appearance and even prevent prosthetics such as dentures from fitting correctly. In contrast, implants offer a permanent solution that does not require resizing or other special maintenance.
In addition to these gains, implants offer unique benefits for people with missing teeth in Denver, NC. Implants allow a full and healthy diet, reducing the risk of malnutrition for people who have lost multiple teeth. Implants can also improve confidence; the prosthetics look just like natural teeth and implants never slip out of place. Dental implants do not require special care, patients just need to regularly brush, floss and have regular dental cleanings.
Dr. McCourt offers different implant placement procedures to accommodate the needs of each patient, based on the patient’s current oral health and the number of implants required. During an initial consultation, Dr. McCourt evaluates whether each patient is a good candidate for implants and then plans the procedure.
