New Year, New Smile After Tooth Loss
- December 23, 2016
If you have been made to feel embarrassed or self-conscious about missing one or more teeth, Dr. Peltzer can help you start the new year feeling better about yourself.
Our Plainville, CT dental team has found that the best (and only truly permanent) solution for adult tooth loss is our two-part procedure for installing dental implants (artificial teeth).
We hope that you will like what you hear below and that you will follow up to schedule your dental implant consultation at Gentle Dental Care of Central Connecticut.
Implants Will Boost Your Appearance
It is tough to lose a tooth as a grown up. There won’t be any tooth fairies showing up to ply you with cash. And every time you open your mouth to speak, smile, or eat, the empty slots in your smile will be hard to miss. So too will be the caved-in cheeks that will eventually add unwanted years to your look.
Given all that, you won’t feel or look like your normal self. This will cause a decline in self-confidence and willingness to interact with others. It won’t be a very fun way to get through life.
Lucky for you, dental implants can quickly restore your natural appearance, making you feel better and look younger.
Your Health Will Improve Too
One of the major perks of having a full set of fully functioning teeth is that you can make healthy, fiber-rich foods a part of your regular diet. We tend to take that for granted. Fiber is involved with regulating your blood sugar and keeping your heart healthy. It can keep strokes at bay, prevent weight gain and discourage hemorrhoids from appearing. Not having fiber is not good for your continued well-being!
But to effectively chew up fiber-rich foods, your teeth have to be there for you. When you are missing teeth, you will find this to be a nearly impossible task. Before long, you will start to move towards foods that are less healthy but more manageable to chew. Over time, your new habits will have a negative impact on your health and wellness.
The great thing is that dental implants from Gentle Dental Care can bring back your biting power and other functions that you enjoyed when your teeth were all in-place.
What Do Implants Entail?
Like we said, dental implants are the next best thing to real teeth!
Our implants integrate with your jawbone and essentially replace the tooth root with a titanium post. The idea is for the post to provide a foundation for a crown that will be placed on top (the crown is the part that looks like a tooth). Final restorations will follow a few months later after sufficient healing and fusion take place in your jawbone.
Our dental implants do a lot more than fill the gaps created by missing teeth. They restore normalcy and health to your life. And with proper care and good oral hygiene practices, your dental implant from Gentle Dental Care can last the rest of your lifetime. More than that, implants can actually add years to your life.
