Listen to Dr. Bruce Corbin talk about our dental implant options.
Our Dental Implants Commercial
Here at Corbin Dental, we offer our patients the latest and most up-to-date treatment options, such as dental implants. Dental implants are a revolutionary new treatment option for missing teeth that provide patients with superior comfort and functionality. While more traditional solutions such as dentures or fixed bridges are certainly effective, they also leave a lot to be desired. Dental implants will not slip out of place nor will they cause damage to other teeth. They are the most naturally functioning and cosmetically pleasing tooth replacement option.
Tooth loss and dental implants
At Corbin Dental, recommend dental implants over all tooth replacement options if patients qualify. Traditional methods such as dentures and fixed bridges are effective but can cause complications in the long term. For example, dentures provide no stimulation to the supporting bone and tissue structures, allowing for deterioration over time. When bone and tissue loss occur, the fit of the dentures can be affected. This means that dentures will usually need to be replaced every five to seven years. Dental implant can last an entire lifetime.
Fixed bridges can cause similar problems as dentures. Because they are supported by remaining healthy teeth, it is required that some tooth enamel be removed so that the bridge can fit comfortably over the tooth. However, this can make the teeth susceptible to bacteria and decay. It is not uncommon for a dental bridge to cause further tooth loss. In fact, there is a 30 percent failure rate at the five to seven year mark. Dental implants, are self-sustainable and do not inflict harm on surrounding teeth.

Because of their titanium composition, dental implants are resistant to decay and cause no irritation to natural tissue. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last an entire lifetime. Patients who received implants over two decades ago continue to report positive results.
