Local Dentist Offers Permanent Teeth Replacement for Denture Wearers
April 23, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsApril 23, 2014 - Duluth, MN – Camille Zelen of Mount Royal Dental offers treatment with mini dental implants as a permanent solution for missing teeth.
For Duluth patients with groups of missing teeth, dentures often seemed like the only treatment that proved to be budget-friendly. However, removable dentures are messy, prone to slippage, and can give the wearer an undesired lisp. Additionally, without the presence of your natural tooth root, your jaw bone can begin to shrink, causing you to resize your dentures and suffer from altered facial aesthetic.
Dr. Camille Zelen understands that removable dentures are often more inconvenient than anything else. That's why she's offering her patients the benefits of mini dental implants. Mini-implants are specifically used to permanently anchor dentures. For people with groups of multiple missing teeth, this means avoiding the annoyance of removable tooth replacements. On average, mini-implants are less costly than traditional dental implants and require less time to place and heal.
Dr. Zelen explains, "Missing teeth can present a variety of complicated oral health issues, but with the advances offered by the mini-implant, fewer people will have to deal with these side-effects."
The mini dental implant contains an artificial tooth root that nurtures bone stability in the jaw. Stabilizing dentures with mini-implants both improves the look and function of your mouth and also encourages better overall oral health. Getting traditional dental implants is a costly and time-consuming procedure that makes many patients with missing teeth hesitant to consider them as a viable teeth replacement option. By offering the mini-implant to her patients, Dr. Zelen is making teeth replacement for better oral health a real option for the members of her community.
Getting mini dental implants involves a one-step procedure and only requires a local anesthetic, with no sutures or the typical months of healing. "The ease of treating patients with mini-implants makes it more accessible, which means I can give more patients the smiles they've been hoping for. Mini-implants also allow my patients to eat the foods they love and to care for their teeth with a hassle-free oral care routine," Dr. Zelen adds.
With the advanced dental services offered by Mount Royal Dental, people suffering from the slurred speech and dietary restrictions that come along with traditional dentures can improve their overall oral health via mini dental implants.
