If you’re missing one or several teeth, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
You’re not alone. Right now, more than 36 million Americans don’t have any teeth at all. Another 120 million people are missing at least one tooth.
It’s critical to address tooth loss soon after it happens – to keep you looking great and preventing a host of oral health problems. One of the great ways to do this is with dental implants.
When you lose a tooth, bone loss almost always occurs. With implants, we can help you avoid facial changes, speech changes, and diet changes that develop because teeth shift, the jawbones recedes, and in some rare cases, cheeks assume a collapsed look.
Is it too late for dental implants if you’ve waited? If some time has passed and you haven’t yet addressed your missing tooth, it probably isn’t too late to contact your smile specialists at Park Ridge Dental Associates. In many cases, modern dentistry techniques for bone regenerations make dental implants a viable option.
Since implants are placed in the jawbone, they provide a solid base for artificial teeth. Once attached, dentures or bridges won’t move around. This is a gamechanger when it comes to eating, speaking, and smiling. You will gain confidence with a smile that feels and looks natural.
Are you a good candidate for implants? Our experienced dentists will take a close look at your smile and consider all health factors when deciding whether implants are for you. Some of the things we will assess are …
- your jawbone density
- condition of your gums
- your oral hygiene habits. It’s a must to look after your implants by brushing and flossing regularly. Routine checkups with your dentist are equally as important.
Contact us today for a consultation to find out if dental implants – the gold standard of care – are what you need to restore your stand out smile. They’ve done wonders for millions of patients … you could be next.
