Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, FIAOMT, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

Why Dr. Virtue places implants

In the past, if you were missing a lot or all of your teeth, dentures may have been the only option. Since conventional dentures are not fixed to underlying bone, wearers commonly complained about loose fit and daily upkeep such as soaking and cleaning. Over the longer term, dentures actually accelerate the destructive process of bone loss in the jaw.

Dental implants stabilize replacement teeth in a way conventional dentures can’t. Innovations in implant techniques have resulted in a versatile procedure, which can replace everything from a single tooth to a mouthful of teeth. Newer approaches allow for a minimal number of implants to support a maximum number of teeth, which reduces the costs associated with this type of tooth replacement.

A cylindrical post designed to replace your tooth’s natural root, the implant is placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for your new tooth or new teeth. This feature provides a number of benefits over traditional tooth replacement such as dentures and conventional bridges, including:
  • The implant-supported tooth looks, functions, and feels like a natural, healthy tooth.
  • The implant system provides stimulation to underlying bone through chewing food and other actions.
  • Bone strength is maintained, which avoids damaging bone loss.
  • You retain a youthful appearance, because underlying bone remains strong and supports facial tissue and structures that otherwise sag with bone loss.
  • You avoid other bone resorption-related complications such as problems with speech and chewing food.
  • Since dental implants are built like natural teeth, there is no special upkeep. You brush and floss as you normally would. In turn, you are less likely to fail to properly clean your teeth.
You also retain healthy tooth structure. Conventional dental bridges rely on adjacent teeth for support. To properly support the new tooth or pontic, these teeth must be crowned. To accommodate the crowns, the teeth would be reduced in size, which might involve removing otherwise healthy tooth structure. Its newer counterpart gets support from dental implants firmly rooted in the bone, so you don’t have to worry about losing healthy structure from surrounding teeth.
