Did it ever occur to you that wearing a denture or having a bridge in your mouth is like renting a place? You will keep going to the dentist every few years for an adjustment or to get a new bridge because there’s decay under the old one and pay more money each time. Wouldn’t you rather save all that money and have a permanent solution for your missing teeth? If yes then let me introduce you to the wonderful world of implants.
Implants are the most modern way to replace missing teeth or just one missing tooth. Implants consist of two major parts. One is a screw like part that gets inserted into your jawbone under your gum and the other is the artificial tooth or series of teeth that get cemented on top of the screw or screws. Together they feel and function like permanent teeth. How would you like that? Get an implant placed with a tooth on it and forget about it. No chance of further decay, no need to take them out at night, no more hassles!
At Rane’s Exclusively Yours Dental, a dental boutique just for you and Rane’s Dental Aesthetics, our specialty office, we have the best surgeons in the area to give you very successful implants on a day-to-day basis.
Placing an implant is a two-step procedure. First the implant is surgically placed in the bone through your gum. This is a minor procedure done as an outpatient under local anesthetic. Once that is done there is a healing period during which the implant fuses with the bone and becomes a part of you. Next a tooth is put on top of the implant permanently.
All you need to do after that is get regular cleanings and check ups like you would for your other teeth. So why would you want to have something you have to constantly take in and out of your mouth or something that may get decayed again or have the embarrassment of your spouse, friends or relatives finding out that you wear fake teeth when you could have something permanent that looks and works like your own teeth? Just get implants and no one will know. You can eat out any time without having to go to the restroom each time to clean food from under your denture or your bridge.
Implant teeth have phenomenal esthetics too. Since a lot of the work is done in a lab they can be made to look as picture perfect or as natural as you want. Implants would be my first choice to replace missing teeth. There’s absolutely nothing that beats them. With an implant you don’t need to cut down and compromise any of your other natural teeth. Implants can function as single units just like natural teeth without needing support from adjacent teeth.
But why replace missing teeth at all? Well, in today’s world where image means everything I’m sure you don’t want to be walking around with spaces in your mouth. It looks plain ugly. Secondly, teeth like to move so if there are spaces in your mouth, over time your teeth will shift and mess up your bite. Thirdly with fewer teeth than you were meant to have you will have difficulty chewing and may not be able to eat some of your favorite foods. So if you have missing teeth or teeth that are loose call us. Not only are we eager to give you better teeth but also a better quality of life through implants. The cost involved is not much compared to what you’ll spend fixing and adjusting other restorations for the rest of your life. Like I said before, “why rent when you can buy?”
