Still Suffering From Missing Teeth?
Another year has gone by in a flash, and, as we welcome in the 2017 new year, we want to take some time to talk about the benefits of dental implants. Many of our current and prospective patients suffer from one or more missing teeth, when they don’t necessarily have to. They may have simply postponed treatment due to other commitments, or fear of the procedure. We’re here to say that dental implants provide a treatment for smile restoration that is both incredibly comfortable and natural-feeling. It’s a clear choice for the new year and a new you.
A New Year’s Resolution You Can Keep
If you’ve been putting off tooth replacement treatment because of the time commitment or the cost, there is no better treatment than now to investigate and make the investment. Dental implants are fully capable of solving many of the same problems as other replacement treatments in the past, but without any of the hassle that comes with them.
A Comfortable Tooth Replacement
Dental implants are incredibly durable and are crafted to feel just as natural as your real teeth. Unlike dentures or dental bridges, these dental implants won’t shift out of place or change the way you prepare your food in any way. You can keep your New Year’s Resolutions, while also ensuring that your smile is complete and healthy.
Simplified Treatment Time
Some patients may bemoan that dental implants are too much of a commitment, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. While dental implants do have a process that can last from weeks to months, a majority of this time is centered around healing and osseointegration. You would go about your normal activities while your implant undergoes this fusion process and integrates with your jawbone. In reality, there are only three big steps to the process: the consultation, placing the implants, than capping it with the abutment and crown.
More Freedom from Dental Devices
Dentures and dental bridges may be quicker to receive than dental implants, but they often restrict what patients can do. Patients with dentures may have to prepare their food differently for easier consumption, or need messy adhesives to keep the denture in place. With dental bridges, oftentimes the adjacent teeth need to be filed down in order to make room for the bridge itself, and this reduction is irreversible. Dental implants are superior, as they are stable, resistant to cosmetic damage, and are healthy for the neighboring teeth.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
Correcting your tooth loss now can only benefit you for the future, but we understand that taking the first step can be intimidating. The best way to uncover your candidacy for this unique treatment is to speak with Dr. Younes and our team. Candidacy often involves checking the state of your oral health, how many teeth you are missing, and if any supplemental treatments are needed to ensure implant success.
