Are you sick and tired of dealing with your dentures slipping when eating or talking or the messy adhesives that you must use to hold them in place. Or maybe you’re dealing with the discomfort of a severely cracked or broken tooth? Or possibly you can’t eat properly due to missing teeth? If you are self-conscious about missing or damaged teeth, dental implants may be just what the dentist ordered to restore your teeth to full functioning complete with a natural appearance.
No matter which situation best describes you, Dr. Mark Sowel of Sensational Smiles. a respected dental practice in Plano, TX, would like you to be educated about what dental implants can do for you and your dental issues.
1. You are missing one or more of your natural teeth.
It can be embarrassing to eat or talk in public when you have gaps in your smile where you are missing teeth. You don’t need to be self-conscious anymore. A dental implant is a natural-looking and fully functional prosthetic tooth that can fill in the empty space where your natural tooth was once located.
2. You have a damaged tooth that cannot be saved.
When you have a painful, cracked or broken tooth, sometimes a dental implant may be the only way to fully restore the natural appearance and functioning of your smile. Although dentists always strive to save as much of the original structure of the tooth as possible, sometimes a tooth is just too damaged. If the tooth is beyond repair, it may need to be removed. If this happens, a dental implant can replace it completely. These implants look and feel so natural, that most people will be unaware you have an implant. You may even forget you have one!
3. Your partials or dentures are loose.
With dentures or partials, you may be constantly on the alert for your dentures clicking or slipping out when you are talking or eating. For this reason, implants are a great option instead of dentures and partials. Implants are permanently attached and do not even need to be removed for cleaning so you will never need to worry about them falling out.
4. You have a sunken-in look to your facial appearance.
Have you ever noticed the sunken-in or caved-in appearance of the mouths of some denture-wearers? Unfortunately, this is a common condition for patients who wear dentures as they grow older due to bone loss. Because dentures do not stimulate bone growth as the roots of natural teeth and implants do, the bone tissue continues to erode over time, resulting in mouth regression. Dental implants have artificial roots that can stimulate bone growth in the jaw around the implant.
