Why It Matters
When you have teeth missing, you won’t look or feel much like your old self. The person you see in the mirror with sunken-in cheeks and gaps in their smile lacks the confidence that you used to exude. The new you can’t always speak clearly, either, causing even more embarrassment.
Worse than any of those things, you’ll be missing out on your favorite menu items unless you happened to love soft foods before this happened. You won’t have the biting power to tear into a steak or savor a crunchy apple. Before you know it, your health will take a turn for the worse because your body won’t be getting all the nutrients and fuel that it is accustomed to from your former life.
Nothing about this situation suggests that this is an acceptable and sustainable model for living. It can be hard to know where to begin, but you have to do sometihng. That’s where we come in with some great restorative dentistry solutions. Don’t worry, we aren’t talking about slippery dentures like your grandpa had to rely on.
Dental Implants Provide Options
Unlike in earlier eras of dentistry, when your options for replacing a lost tooth were limited, we can find a good way forward for you by utilizing modern tools and technology. Dental implants, for example, are anchored into your jawbone providing you with strength for biting, improving your speech in the process. Plus, when the implant is restored fully, you won’t be able to tell that it isn’t a real tooth. Having something in the hole will also keep your remaining teeth from shifting around and will help you fill out your face again. Your health, appearnace, and confidence will all get a big boost accordingly. With us you can get your implants restored in several varieties:
- Dental implants with a crown: for this Dr. Shatto will attach a dental crown to a single implant to replace one tooth.
- Dental implants with a bridge: so that we can replace several teeth, Dr. Shatto can attach a bridge to two or more implants.
- Dental implants with dentures: if you so desire you can get either partial dentures or full dentures anchored by implants.
You may even be a good candidate to receive your implants and replacement teeth in a single day. But we can talk more about that when you are here for your consultation.
