Dental Implants 101
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that are surgically placed into the gum by Dr. Smith and allowed to fuse with your jawbone. This creates a sturdy foundation for any type of restoration necessary (typically a single crown or denture of some type). Once the implant site has healed and your restoration is placed, you will be able to go about your normal life as if you had never lost a tooth at all! This treatment can help you get through that hard time chewing and finally enjoy the food you love.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a few different benefits as opposed to other tooth replacement options. Dental implants are:
Natural Looking – We craft all of our restorations (including the ones we use with dental implants) to look natural in your mouth. And because tooth implants are secured to your gums at the base, they look even more natural than our other restorations!
Strong – Did you know that dental implants restore almost 100 percent of your natural chewing power? Eat the foods you love once more without worry, pain, or embarrassment.
Secure – They will not move around in your mouth like removable dentures! Dental implants are secure and completely functional.
Long Lasting – Dental implants are designed to last for decades when properly maintained. They can even last for the rest of your life! Chances are, tooth implants will be the only tooth replacement solution you will ever need.
Healthy – Dental implants are easy to clean and discourage jawbone deterioration.
Make An Appointment
In that situation, pain on chewing is usually going to be a tooth problem as far as some type of abscess or something like that, or it could be a joint problem, the jaw joint. That's two separate things.
The first thing would be to determine which of the two it is, and then proceed from there. Our philosophy here is to get you out of pain, that's first on the list. Then gum disease, cavities, anything like that, if it's there it's getting worse, it's not just going to go away. For a lot of patients to have severely broken down teeth and situation, we have to phase it so it's number one to get you out of pain, get things stabilized, and then we go back and start working toward a more permanent solution.
