We hope you are enjoying the holidays. But if you have suffered through tooth loss as an adult, you already know the problems it can cause and the obstacles it can create, especially this time of year. You won’t be able to enjoy the foods you love, and you won’t feel much like facing friends and family with your altered appearance.
Clearly there are plenty of good reasons for finding a permanent solution for this painful and embarrassing predicament. Still, even knowing what you know, you may be hesitant to take the next step. And that’s why our Gillette, WY dentist’s office is here.
Today we wanted to outline a few of the reasons for scheduling a dental implant procedure and what that simple procedure will look like. Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your consultation with Dr. Porter and the rest of the Synergy Dental Center team.
Better Mouth Function
Until you lose one, you may go through life never realizing how each tooth plays a part in your ability to chew your food and speak clearly to others. Don’t force yourself to chew out of one side of your mouth or to accept your new speech patterns! A dental implant can restore the functionality you’ve been going without!
If you are missing any teeth, you won’t look your best or feel very confident! And when you don’t feel confident, your opportunities both at work and at play will be greatly diminished. Don’t go into hiding. Come see us instead!
After tooth loss, your health will suffer too as you won’t be getting the fiber-rich foods you need (you won’t be able to chew them). Plus, your oral health will be at risk until you fill in those unseemly holes.
The Solution Is Easy
At Synergy Dental Center, it is a simple two-step process for restoring your smile with dental implants. We place the implant strategically through your gums and on into your jawbone. Once your implant is placed, we allow your jaw to heal. This could take a few months.
During this time, a process called osseointegration is going on. This means your bone is fusing with your titanium implant to create a bond that will last for years to come. Once you are healed enough, we will restore your implant with a crown (the part that looks like a tooth). We also have an option for restoring your smile in just one day.
Because we understand that everyone’s situation is different, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions including…
Single Dental Implant: This is the option that you would choose if you needed just one tooth replaced. A single dental implant is topped with a single crown to replace a tooth that has been knocked out, has fallen out, or has been extracted.
Implant-Supported Bridge: Our implant-supported bridge consists of three or more teeth set into a base of some sort and attached to your jaw using dental implants. This option can vary depending on how many teeth you need to replace, up to an entire arch.
Implant-Supported Dentures: You can secure your dentures using dental implants. Our implant-supported dentures are more stable and reliable than removable dentures alone.
All-on-4 Dental Implants: We can create a restoration for you that can be placed all in one day. We will remove any teeth necessary, place the implants, and attach your new teeth all in one procedure! We even use a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort.
