Summer is a popular time for people to make drastic changes to improve their lifestyle and overall well-being. Some people like to do spring cleaning, some people exercise more, and some look into improving their oral health. When the sun is shining and the skies are blue, sometimes all you want to do is to go outside and enjoy the weather. While spending time with your friends and family while creating great memories. The last thing you want is your smile to hold you back from living your life to the fullest because we all want a smile that we can show proudly. That is why many people look into cosmetic dentistry during summer, so their smile doesn’t hold them back.
Missing even one tooth can be a big hit to your confidence, but there are solutions to fix that: Whether it’s one tooth, several teeth, or even all of your teeth. Not everyone who comes to see us is interested in dentures – due to their lack of stability in your mouth. Along with many noting discomforts when wearing their dentures. In these cases, dental implants might be the solution.
They are just what they sound like – they’re implants. We take titanium posts (that look similar to screws) and implant them into your jawbone. As a replacement for your missing tooth’s natural root. Once your mouth recovers from the implant procedure, you will return to our office to have your restorations (usually dental crowns) attached to your titanium posts.
Our dental implants have a 98% success rate – most of our patients keep their implants for the rest of their lives since they’re long-lasting. You may need to replace the crowns a few times over the years, but you’ll only need to get implants once. It might sound scary to have these posts implanted into your jaw. But these implants are great for your jawbone when it comes to preserving it. The posts act as your natural tooth would and provides stimulation to your jawbone. That helps keep it strong and prevents your bone from shrinking.
Since your rods hold your crowns. Your new teeth are pretty much screwed into your jaw, giving your smile complete stability. You don’t need denture adhesive, and you don’t risk embarrassment with your dentures shifting around in your mouth. Dental implants will keep your smile secure. You can get just one implant to replace one missing tooth or a few implants to support a bridge or denture. Whichever option is best for you, your smile will stay in place. The feeling will be comparable to your natural bit. And you’ll most likely experience being able to taste more and talk easier than you would with dentures.
Plus, once your implants are placed, you can live as you did before. You can floss and brush your teeth normally, and you’ll still see your dentist twice a year. If you’re looking for a tooth replacement option that gives you a sense of normalcy. Then consider looking at dental implants.
You’ll experience a boost in your self-confidence that will have you enjoying your summer (plus the other seasons!). In a way, you probably couldn’t have imagined.
