The holiday season is fast approaching. You want to enjoy all of the seasonal get-togethers, and snapping photos is a big part of the festivities. If you’re not comfortable with your smile, now may be the time to fix that. If missing teeth have you hiding your smile, dental implants could be the solution to enhance your outward appearance and restore function.
If you suffer from missing teeth, whether from genetics or an accident, a dental bridge may not give you the natural feel you want. Dental implants give you the confidence of a natural tooth, along with a healthy bite. This is a permanent fix.
Dental implants give you the ability to have natural looking teeth that are comfortable and that you can be confident in. They taste and chew food as well as a natural tooth would.
A dental implant is an artificial root inserted into the jaw to replace a tooth, much like its original, natural structure, and very strong. The dental implant is made out of medical grade titanium, very similar to any sort of knee or joint replacement.
The process starts with 3D X-rays to diagnose the exact problem, then surgery can be done the same day. If a tooth needs to be extracted it can be, and the dental implant can be inserted any time after that.
A custom mold is created for each patient. The dental implant has three parts: an anchoring root, an abutment and a crown; just like a tooth which is prepared for a crown and then you put the tooth on top of it.
Patients can undergo sedation dentistry if they are worried about feeling any pain. Dental implants can be an option for one or two missing teeth, or the entire mouth.
Be thrilled to be showing off your full smile again this holiday season.
