Dr. Robert Sorenson, cosmetic dentist in Midlothian, VA, is offering his denture patients the latest and most advanced alternative to restoring their smiles after permanent tooth loss. With permanent dental implants, Dr. Sorenson is able to offer patients a solution that performs just as well as natural teeth and looks identical, too.
For more than 20 million Americans, dentures or partial dentures are a part of their everyday lives. Not only do they affect the confidence of their smiles, but they also affect their lifestyle, causing discomfort, diet restrictions, and even pain when not fitted properly. Dental implants like those offered by Dr. Sorenson allow patients to let go of the hassle of removable dentures and instead enjoy all the benefits of natural teeth once again.
“Our goal is to help our denture patients realize that they don’t have to live with these cumbersome, uncomfortable oral devices for the rest of their life if they don’t want to—dental implants are a far superior solution,” said Dr. Sorenson. “Dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth, and in most cases, they perform even better than the patient’s natural teeth prior to tooth loss. Best of all, the technology these implants are designed with are proven to last a lifetime.”
In addition to the aesthetic benefits that permanent dental implants offer for denture wearers, there are also a variety of health benefits that they bring as well. Dental implants have proven to help prevent the jawbone from shrinking, or resorbing, after permanent tooth loss. Implants also allow the patient to eat a well-rounded diet with no chewing restrictions, unlike removable dentures. Dental implants can be cleaned just like natural teeth, preventing the build up of bacteria that can often occur with dentures if not cleaned properly.
The entire dental implants procedure takes several weeks or months, depending on the situation of the patient. A small metal screw is first surgically inserted into the jawbone in the area where the permanent tooth is missing. This small screw then takes several weeks to heal and fuse with the tissues of the jawbone. Then, Dr. Sorenson attaches an artificial crown that he and the patient previously designed, ensuring that it is the shape, size, and shade that they prefer.
At Midlothian Family Dentistry, Dr. Sorenson works alongside Dr. William Monacell, another highly experienced dentist. Together, they provide a variety of other services in addition to dental implants. These include orthodontics, treatments for periodontal disease, laser dentistry, sedation dentistry, pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, and much more.
Dr. Sorenson is a well-known dental professional in the local Midlothian, VA area and has been practicing for several years. He completed his dental education at the Medical College of Virginia and then went on to serve in the United States Navy and American Red Cross as a healthcare professional. Dr. Sorenson is very involved in continuing dental education, and has received extensive training in a variety of dental specialties, including emergency medicine, oral surgery, endodontics, IV sedation, and laser surgery. His expertise as a provider of dental implants have earned him several awards, including that from the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons for outstanding achievement in implant dentistry.
