|Let’s face it: tooth loss may be a reality, but that doesn’t make it any less inconvenient or embarrassing. Millions of patients suffer the loss of their natural teeth for a variety of reasons. Cavities, gum disease, and accidental injury can rob you of your vital teeth. Sometimes, the permanent may simply fail to grow into their proper places.
No matter the reason for missing teeth, the impact on your lifestyle and health are the same. Tooth loss makes eating and speaking uncomfortable. It may cause you to feel insecure about smiling in public. It also contributes to a significant loss of support for your remaining teeth as well as your jaw joint.
To address these concerns, many patients are opting for a long-term solution to tooth loss. Making the choice to invest in a dental implant is a decision that will keep you smiling for a very long time.
Under the care of an experienced implant dentist, your new tooth (or teeth) will feel like a part of your mouth rather than a foreign object. The implant feels very natural because it is designed to mimic the structure and proportions of a real tooth. In fact, the implant is so readily accepted by the human body that the jaw bone literally becomes integrated with the artificial tooth root.
To determine if dental implants are the type of investment that you can smile about, take a moment to consider what your smile is really worth. How does it feel to laugh and smile freely, without the fear that a friend or acquaintance will notice the vacant space between your teeth? What would you give to eat any food that you may choose, such as steak or corn on the cob, in comfort? What type of value would you place on a new tooth that would prevent bone loss and preserve the appearance of your lips, cheeks, and face?
Dental implants are the solution that can meet all of these expectations and more with none of the limitations of other tooth replacement options. Consult our implant dental team, serving Las Colinas and the neighboring areas, to discuss how dental implants can help to put you on the pathway towards a lifetime of smiles.
