Welcome back to our St. Petersburg dental blog!
Today we want to talk about a tough topic: tooth loss in adults. No matter how it happens, it will be traumatic, embarrassing, and bad for your health. As such, you’ll want to do something about it ASAP.
The good news is that there are great solutions for ending your tooth-loss woes. The best thing going these days is a dental implant.
Implants have expanded the possibilities of restorative dentistry. In the old days, people had to put up with dentures that didn’t look good, didn’t chew effectively, didn’t fit properly. That was no fun for anyone.
Nowadays we have the capabilities for replacing teeth permanently with dental implants and putting natural-looking crowns on them.
Just so you know: we do not actually perform the initial implant portion of the procedure at Jeffery A. Spilman DDS. To ensure you get the best care in town, we partner with an amazing specialist who is located only a few miles away from our office.
Once the implant is installed, you will come back to us for the crown restoration. Working as a tag-team, we’ll get you the great grin you’ve been hoping for!
Implants Are Easy
This simple surgical procedure involves a two-stage process. Here’s how it works: your implant will first be inserted by our partner specialist and allowed to fuse with your bone. This will mimic the function of your root.
After the required healing has happened, a dental crown will be placed back in our office. This is the part that will look like the top of your natural teeth. After that, your life will get back to the way it was!
They Boost Your Appearance
If any teeth are missing, your smile will suffer. And your cheeks will likely cave-in, making you look older than you really are. That won’t be a good situation for you, but we can help you turn things around.
The crown we place over the implant will look and feel completely natural, plus it will give you a fuller smile and facial support. You’ll be looking good and feeling confident again!
They Are Designed To Fit Your Unique Mouth
There simply aren’t any other artificial teeth options out there that will be as comfortable as a dental implant. Our implant and crown combination feels so much like your natural tooth that you’ll be smiling confidently before you know it.
You’ll Get Your Bite Back
With implants, you will once again have the biting power you were accustomed to before you lost teeth. This means that you can go back to eating the foods you love, and the fiber-rich snacks that keep your health on the good road.
Plus, your new implant, unlike old-school dentures, will be completely secure because it will bond directly to the jawbone. You can eat, drink, and laugh without concern!
