Dental Implants the Best Choice for Tooth Replacement

Dental Implants the Best Choice for Tooth Replacement

If you have one or more missing teeth, it can be very challenging. Still there are many people who take it for granted. A missing tooth can affect your life in many ways. You may have to put restrictions on the kind of food you can order at the restaurant. A missing tooth not only hampers your smile but also your confidence.

Here’s a look at some reasons that make dental implants worth it:

Dangers of Missing Teeth

When you lose a tooth you also lose the root located in the jaw. The jaw bone starts deteriorating without a root. Because of the space created by the missing tooth, the remaining teeth begin to shift putting teeth at risk of wear, fracture, and periodontal diseases.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are different from other tooth replacement options as they are a long-term solution which not only replaces the tooth but also the roots. A titanium post is fused in the jawbone and allowed to heal as well as bond with the bone around it. This offers a stable foundation for the new tooth, i.e. your porcelain crown.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement options which are as functional as your natural teeth and look just like your natural teeth. This means you can chew, bite, floss, brush and smile just like you did with your natural teeth. They don’t just look natural but also act as natural teeth.

Advantages of Dental Implants:

  • They are a superior option as far as aesthetics are concerned.
  • They protect the adjacent teeth.
  • They help in building confidence.
  • The implants are more reliable and durable.

What to Expect?

You will first undergo a dental examination depending on which line of treatment will be decided. It may take anywhere around 6 to 9 months for the procedure to go through.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

You can be a good candidate for implants if you have overall good health and enough healthy bone structure for supporting the procedure.

What we are doing to keep you and your family safe when you come to our office

We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While may things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one at a time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
