you or someone you know has crooked or crowded teeth, you may be wondering what the best method is to fix them.
People mocking dentists for their profession is exasperating. Why would they even dare to mock someone who’s helping other people with their medical issues. Your oral health is no less important than the health of the rest of your body.
There’s this culture in the medical industry for mocking dentists for their education and their work. They just kept pointing out that dentists don’t actually saves lives or help other people’s illnesses. But are they right? Should we actually belittle a profession that started 800 centuries ago?
For anyone, and you especially, who might be considering having dental implants, you should read the list below and see what your answers are.
- Do you look in the mirror and see a smile that embarrasses you?
- Do you have MISSING teeth, FAILING teeth or ill-fitting dentures that just don’t work?
- Are you tired of social embarrassment, not getting noticed by that special someone or looking older than you are?
- Do you seriously desire to CHEW COMFORTABLY and knock 10 years off your appearance? (Hint: Many of our patients claim that most people rave about how they look like they’ve “lost weight, gotten a haircut, and look 10 years younger” as a bonus from their new smile)
- Do you secretly desire to have a bright, white, healthy smile, preserve your existing teeth and live a longer, healthier, happier life?
It’s not uncommon for you to be afraid of any pain. You’re not alone.
Most patients report that they feel very little, if any, pain during a dental implant procedure. In fact, many patients say they didn’t even need to use any pain pills. The fact is, your decision to get implants will help you avoid much pain and discomfort in the long term that keeping your bad teeth or not replace missing ones would cause.
Yes, dental implants are one of the best options to fix a missing tooth. Dental Implants are made of 3 parts: implant, abutment, and crown.
While the goal is for you to have a healthy implant that lasts for years to come, on rare occasion, there may be circumstance that occur that might mean having one replaced.
An example might be if an infection were to develop around the site.
Due to the loss of bone in the jaw, dental implants most often involve one or more surgeries over a period of up to a few months.
This process may take up to six months giving time for the bone to grow around the implant and firmly hold it in place. It is only then that the final crown can be placed in the implant.
Throughout the years, the dental implant procedure has slowly adjusted from offering two methods of implantation to a common single method. By focusing more research in this area, dental experts have been able to develop better technology for the procedure and simple protocols to avoid issues throughout and after the surgery.
