The Truth About Dental Implants

posted in: ClearCorrect | 0

When you lose one or more teeth as an adult it will be: traumatic, painful, and embarrassing. Plus, your health and confidence will both deteriorate on account of your missing teeth. Simply put, your life will be changed, and not for the better. But there is a way to quickly restore your health, your self-assurance, and your appearance: dental implants. Truth be told, this procedure can be a real life-saver both in the literal and metaphorical sense. Keep reading to hear all about dental implants, and then be sure to follow up with Dr. Roeder to schedule your restorative dentistry consultation in our Quakertown, PA dentist’s office.

Dental Implants Explained

Here’s what you need to know: dental implants are small rods made from titanium, that resemble a screw. They are surgically inserted into your jaw and once sufficient healing takes place, a replacement tooth-like crown is attached to create a beautiful new smile for you.

Following the insertion of dental implants, they immediately begin to merge with the bone in your jaw and act as the new roots of your “teeth,” which ensures that you don’t fall victim to further bone and gum tissue loss.

Trust us, these modern marvels are a vast improvement on the false teeth distributed back in your grandfather’s day.

The Surgery Is Pleasant And Painless Here

We will do everything in our power to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. That includes employing sedation dentistry techniques to guarantee that your visit is smooth and comfortable. Remember, Dr. Roeder is qualified to administer everything from N2O to IV sedation, so you won’t have any reason to be nervous.

Dental Implants Feel Natural In Your Mouth

While it takes a little getting used to, our dental implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. The artificial tooth, or crown, is custom-made to fit your mouth. It will be the right size, shape, and color to blend in with the rest of your teeth. You will hardly know that they are not the real thing, and no one else will ever know.

They Can Last A Lifetime

Our dental implants are designed to last a lifetime but they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth.

Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting our dental office every three to six months will keep you smiling.

You’ve Got Nothing To Lose Since Your Consultation Is Free

Here’s the deal: during your free exam, we’ll take digital X-rays, look over your teeth, and discuss whether dental implants are the right choice for you. Whenever possible, we encourage folks to come in for a dental implant immediately following the loss of or irreparable damage to your tooth. This is because tooth loss causes bone loss in your jaw, and significant bone loss can change the entire shape of your face and lead to saggy, wrinkly skin. Nobody wants that for themselves! If you have already suffered significant bone loss, don’t despair, we can do a bone graft procedure to build your jawbone back up, or we can use mini dental implants that need less bone to fit snugly.
