Contrary to popular misconception, missing teeth can be more than just embarrassing. Having a gap or missing teeth can lead to infection and other health issues. While some people may not mind having a hockey player’s smile, other people prefer to have a complete and functional smile. Fortunately, the team at Impressions Dental can help with that and much more.
A dental implant can offer an aesthetic appeal by matching the shade of the surrounding teeth and fitting perfectly in the gap of the missing tooth. Dental implants can also provide functionality by allowing the patient to eat and drink whatever the patient wants. Unlike dentures, a dental implant remains in the mouth since the team at Impressions Dental will insert the implant into the jawbone.
By doing so, the patient will not have to worry about the synthetic teeth falling out when one is eating or laughing. While some people may believe that the dental implant process is painful, Dr. Baker and his team will take the necessary steps to ensure the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure. In fact, there will only be minimal levels of pain following the procedure.
To begin the process, the team will need to take a mold of the patient’s teeth and send it to a dental lab for them to develop the implant. Since this part of the process may take a few days, the patient may receive a temporary implant to fill the gap for the time being. Once the implant is ready, the team will call the patient back in to finish the procedure.
After placing the official dental implant, the patient will be able to use the tooth without any excessive care. In fact, the dental implant will not rot like natural teeth. However, food and plaque can stick between the implant and surrounding teeth, so the patient needs to continue brushing and flossing around the implant as normal.
Unlike with dentures, the patient will not have to remove the dental implant each night to clean. The patient will also never have to worry about the dental implant no longer fitting properly. By stimulating the jaw, the dental implant prevents the body from leeching the calcium for other areas of the body. If you are interested in dental implants, call Impressions Dental today.
