Happy New Year! We hope you’re enjoying the chance to start fresh in 2018!
At Tieken Smiles, we offer many ways to restore your smile so you can get back to better health this year.
Today in particular, we’re giving you some insight on one of the most powerful transformations we offer for patients struggling with tooth loss.
It’s rehab for your smile, but you’ve probably heard it commonly referred to as a full-mouth reconstruction.
Here’s what this strategy could mean for your smile, your health, and your life in 2018!
The Dental Implant Difference
A missing tooth leaves a large empty space behind. To protect yourself from the harmful bacteria that loves empty spaces like that, you need to replace the tooth.
This can easily be done with a dental bridge that anchors a crown in the center, which is an effective solution for many people. But the fact is, a bridge will only allow your replacement tooth to rest atop your gums. If your jawbone in that area isn’t kept engaged, it can deteriorate and compromise the stability of the surrounding structures.
So naturally, it makes sense that missing several teeth can pose an even bigger health risk in the long run.
With dental implants, you’re getting an artificial root for your new tooth. Like a screw, an implant is placed inside your jawbone so it can fuse naturally with it over time. This allows for better security, stability, and more, healthy bone growth as time goes by.
It’s why dental implants are the optimum choice in modern tooth replacement. Dr. Tieken can use a dental implant for one missing tooth, or he can use several dental implants to stabilize your dentures!
How Dental Implants Improve Your Life
Now that you know what dental implants are and how they work, let’s take a look at the real life benefits of this amazing tooth replacement option!
Here are some of the many advantages of dental implants:
*You’ll Look Wonderful!
No one wants to go through life with a toothless smile. But even with a full set of replacement teeth like traditional dentures, you also don’t want to go through life with teeth that look fake.
Dental implants are capped with natural-looking dental crowns that replicate real teeth better than anything we’ve seen in modern dentistry. Thanks to advanced technology, we can custom-craft replacement teeth with unmatched precision for a life-like smile!
And even if you prefer dentures, you’ll find the most attractive solutions at Tieken Smiles! The best part is that along with looking more natural than most removable dentures offered everywhere else, our dentures can be stabilized with dental implants for better strength and security!
*You’ll Feel Great!
Dental implants are simply a modern way to anchor a restoration. So not only does your smile look great, but your teeth will feel just like your own! No more uncomfortable chewing or stress about possible slips of your removable dentures. You get nothing but comfort with dental implants!
*It Can Improve Your Speech!
Many times, denture wearers can give away the fact that they’re wearing them in the first place simply by the way it affects speech. Traditional dentures can be a bit slippery, even with the best adhesives.
Dental implants allow you to have the kind of stability you get with real teeth, so your speech isn’t altered at all!
*Oral Hygiene Is A Breeze!
Since your implant is covered by a restoration that looks and feels natural, it makes oral hygiene a breeze! You can brush and floss just like you normally do without the hassle of taking out your teeth to clean them everyday.
*You’ll Improve Your Oral & Overall Health!
With dental implants, you’re able to maintain a normal routine of daily brushing and flossing, which means you can achieve and maintain better oral health. Implants also allow you to keep your remaining teeth strong and healthy, which is the ideal way to preserve your smile overall. That combination helps to protect your body from the linked health risks of tooth loss and gum disease like heart attack, stroke, and diabetes.
*They Last A Lifetime!
Traditional dentures require fittings and replacements for the rest of your life, which ultimately makes them impractical in the long run. It means they aren’t necessarily a better long-term solution financially.
Dental implants are well worth the costs because, if cared for properly, they’ll last the rest of your life!
