There are a lot of denture wearers in this country. Our elderly population contains the most denture patients, but there are other patients who aren’t elderly who have to wear them. Dentures offer great support and dental aesthetics for people who have lost their teeth. However, denture wearers have been known to suffer the effects of facial imbalance, lost volume in the face, and other appearance problems. We don’t want you to suffer any longer. At our office in Mt. Holly, NJ, Dr. Williams Greenberg is proud to offer this fantastic service for all of our denture wearers. This blog isn’t meant to downplay the importance of dentures, because they are very important for patients with missing teeth. However, this will focus more on the effects dentures can have on a patient’s face, and that is what we want to fix. Just because you have to wear dentures doesn’t mean you have to suffer from the effects it can have on your face. Dr. Greenberg is the dentist Burlington County can trust.

Remember when you were a child and the tooth fairy magically removed the tooth from under your pillow and left a surprise in its place? Well, those days are gone. However, if you have one or more missing teeth, there is still something magical that can replace them. Dental implants are the most lifelike tooth replacement option. For dental implants in Mt. Holly, NJ, people rely on the dentists at Mt. Holly Family Dentistry.
Teeth may be missing because of:
- Severe tooth decay
- Traumatic injury
- Advanced gum disease
- Failure of a root canal
- Excessive wear and tear, possibly from teeth grinding and clenching
- Congenital defects
Whatever the cause, replacing missing teeth is vitally important to avoid a host of other problems including difficulty chewing and talking, shifting teeth, and of course, the embarrassment of having an incomplete smile.
The Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants, also called teeth implants, can be used to replace one tooth, and they can also be strategically positioned along an arch to securely hold a denture in place. In either case, one of our highly skilled dentists will surgically implant a titanium post in the jaw bone beneath the open socket of your missing tooth. As you heal over the course of three to six months, the post and surrounding bone tissue will fuse together. This fusion mimics the relationship between a tooth root and the bone, thereby creating a strong foundation. Once healed, you’ll return to Mt. Holly Family Dentistry to have a custom-fitted crown attached to the post. The finished teeth implants will look, feel and function much like natural teeth.
