Despite improvements in dental care, oral hygiene, and general nutrition, millions of Americans still suffer from tooth loss, mainly due to decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Previous options for replacing missing teeth were bridges, partials, and dentures.
Now we have a better option dental implants.
Yes, there are still skeptics but they are dwindling. The benefits are obvious: implants look and feel like natural teeth! Given time, the bone will grow to intergrate the implant into the jaw and become part of your dental structure, eliminating the discomfort of a removable appliance.
Implants allow you to eat your favorite food without discomfort. You can smile with the boost of self-confidence that comes from your improved oral health.
Of course, nothing is better than your natural teeth. They are our first priority!
Sometimes, however, circumstances exist when we have to look for other options. Depending on your oral health, habits such as smoking, and your health in general, implants could be a good option for you.
Lets have an honest conversation about what you are experiencing, and I can help educate you on the relevant pros and cons of implants as a potential solution for your specific situation.
Just because you don't have your original teeth, doesn't mean you shouldn't have a healthy mouth. We can help get you there.
