Care To Renew and Rejuvenate

Years of wear and tear, injury, or poor care can hurt the look and function of your teeth. Dr. Jason changes lives every day through restorative dentistry. Rejuvenate your smile today!

Dental Implants

Are you missing teeth? Have you postponed getting a bridge or denture? Do you wear ill-fitting, loose dentures right now? Dr. Jason wants to improve your quality of life with dental implants.

As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, dental implants serve as substitute tooth roots. Each implant is strategically placed in the jaw, where bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. For dental implants in Greenwood SC contact us today.

Benefits of Dental Implants:

  • Promote bone retention
  • Eliminate slipping, loose, and wobbly dentures
  • Don’t require support from healthy teeth
  • Can last a lifetime
  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth

Dental Implant Supported Dentures

While typical dentures shift and require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures, such as gingival (gum) sores, difficulty speaking, and difficulty chewing. Implant supported dentures distribute your biting pressure more like natural teeth than traditional dentures, stimulating the supportive structures of your teeth and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. You can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking implants.

Dentures

A properly fitting denture is very important. A good fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your mouth’s function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures will keep you looking and feeling healthy and will help you maintain a natural lifestyle. A lifelike smile, the best possible fit, and the ability to function in speech and chewing – those are three of the primary goals that Dr. Jason will achieve if you need dentures to restore your smile.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The partial denture is removable and is designed to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile while still remaining functional. A partial denture is important to keep existing teeth from tilting and moving in towards the gaps.

Crowns

After the decay has been removed or after a tooth breaks, Dr. Jason will use a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.

Bridges

If you’ve lost a tooth, a large gap in your smile can create significant problems for your dental health if left uncorrected. Gradually, your bite pressure may shift to other parts of your mouth to compensate for an inability to chew efficiently in the area of the missing tooth. Neighboring teeth may begin to move into the gap resulting in discomfort, pain, and more problems in the future. After some preparation of the two neighboring teeth, crowns are created for them. A prosthetic tooth, or pontic, is fused between the crowns. Fixed bridges literally “bridge the gap” in your smile. Dr. Jason creates a functional, life-like bridge to correct your smile, restore your bite, and alleviate your discomfort.
