Take Back Your Life With Implants
Hello folks! Welcome to another December edition of the Gentle Dental Care blog! We are your trusted source for dentistry solutions in Plainville, CT.
We hope that you are enjoying the holiday season with friends and loved ones. This time of year, we remember just how much we have to smile about. However, if you have lost a tooth in the last 12 months, odds are you won’t feel much like showing off the empty spaces in your mouth.
No matter how your tooth became dislodged, it was no doubt a painful and embarrassing situation for you to have to endure. The important thing now is to find a workable treatment to get you back on track before it gets any worse.
Dental implant surgery is one treatment that we offer in an attempt to forever change your life, for the better.
Having Teeth Helps You Chew Healthy Foods
One of the best things about having a complete set of functional teeth is that you can eat fiber-rich foods.
What’s so great about fiber?
As it happens, fiber helps keep your heart healthy and your daily digestion on track. It also plays a role in preventing weight gain, hemorrhoids, and strokes.
Obviously, you wouldn’t want to miss out on the benefits of fiber.
Yet, without all of your teeth, you might have to. This is because you will find it difficult, if not impossible, to chew high-fiber foods. You will be forced to avoid these healthy menu items.
Sadly, this turn of events will adversely affect your health!
Implants Make You Feel Like Yourself Again
The truth is that tooth loss is hard to handle.
No matter where you have lost teeth, your looks will suffer, and things in your mouth won’t feel like they are supposed to.
There will be those empty spaces in your smile, and your sunken-in cheeks will make you look deceptively older. Conversation, laughter, and breaking bread with friends, will cause you discomfort and shame.
Fortunately, dental implants from Gentle Dental Care can quickly turn this mess around for you so that you can start to feel like yourself again.
You’d be surprised by how much they can improve your life!
Dental Implants Are A Permanent Solution
To get the ball rolling, we will take detailed impressions of your teeth to use as a model for your new replacement teeth.
Then, the titanium rod, that functions as a “root,” will be surgically inserted into the jaw where the missing tooth was.
If that makes you uneasy, sedation is available for the procedure, so you will not experience any discomfort or pain.
That’s why they call us Gentle Dental Care!
After the initial phase, the root is allowed to fuse with your bone for a few months. The restoration of the implant is when the replacement tooth is attached.
This is the part that actually looks like a tooth.
For an individual implant, an abutment is screwed onto the titanium rod and your custom dental crown, shaded to match the rest of your teeth, is secured on top.
Importantly, your new tooth will look and feel natural.
This procedure will allow you to look younger and probably live longer too because once you have your biting force back, you will be able to eat healthy choices once again.
Doesn’t that sound nice?
