It’s Time To Try Dental Implants
- August 17, 2017
In the summertime, we remember just how much we have to smile about. However, if you have ever lost a tooth as an adult, odds are good that you won’t feel much like showing off the empty spaces in your mouth. No matter how your tooth became dislodged, it has no doubt been a painful and embarrassing situation for you to have to endure. The important thing now is to find a workable restorative dentistry treatment to get you back on track before it gets any worse. That’s where we come in. Dr. Peltzer is a big believer in the power of dental implant surgery. This is a simple procedure that can forever change your life, for the better. Keep reading to hear more about why you will want to get back to having a full set of teeth, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your consultation at our Plainville, CT dentist’s office.
Chewing Healthy Foods Requires All Your Teeth
One of the best things about having a complete set of functional teeth is that you can eat fiber-rich foods. Why is fiber so special? Fiber helps keep your heart healthy and your daily digestion on track. It also plays a role in preventing weight gain, hemorrhoids, and strokes. Without all your teeth, you might have to miss out on these great benefits. 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 and instead eat a diet of soft foods.
Our Dental Implants Make You Feel And Look Like Yourself Again
Following tooth loss, your looks will suffer, and things in your mouth won’t feel like they are supposed to. There will be those wide open spaces in your smile, and your caved-in cheeks will make you look deceptively older. Conversation, laughter, and eating a meal with friends or coworkers, will cause you discomfort and even shame. This won’t be good for your social or professional life! But here’s some welcome news: dental implants from Gentle Dental Care can quickly turn this situation around for you so that you can start to feel like yourself again. You’d be surprised by how much implants feel and look like natural teeth!
Dental Implants Are Built To Last
So, now you are probably wondering about the process and the end results. It all starts with a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate. Then we will get started.
First, 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. We are certified to administer the deepest of levels, which is something most dentist’s offices in the area can’t claim.
After the root is in place, it is allowed to fuse with your bone for a few months. The restoration of the implant is when the replacement tooth (the crown) is attached.
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.
This easy and effective 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. Who doesn’t want that?!
