Dental implants are a healthy solution for the replacement and restoration of missing or damaged teeth. Many of our Pi Dental Center staff have first-hand experience with dental implants. In this blog, we discuss the benefits of dental implants and staff provides their insights.
Put an End to Worrying
Missing and damaged teeth can cause a great deal of distress. People worry about how they will feel when they eat their next meal. They worry about tooth pain. They worry about what foods they can actually eat and whether the foods will be too difficult to eat. If they wear removable dentures, they may worry that their dentures will move around when they are eating.
With dental implants you can stop worrying about your teeth. Osseointegrated* dental implants comfortably remain in place when eating.
Another fear relates the continued destruction of the dentition over time. Pi Dental Center dental hygienist, Dolly, states, “Dental implants are impervious to decay.” Patients with full mouth implant supported teeth will no longer need to worry about continued damage due to dental decay.
Confidence in Your Smile
People who have missing or damaged teeth often hide their smiles. Dental implant treatment improves appearance with new beautiful teeth. People say they feel confident and can smile again.
Healthy teeth support facial structures. As teeth are lost, bone loss occurs, eventually causing the face to have a collapsed appearance. With dental implants, facial structure is supported, providing a natural and more youthful appearance.
Eat Healthy and Enjoyable Meals
With a dental implant makeover, you don’t have to limit your food choices. Foods that were formerly off-limits can again be enjoyed.
Oral health is directly related to your overall health. Gum disease contributes to medical problems including heart disease, diabetes and even brain health. Before dental implants are surgically placed, unhealthy teeth, bacteria and gum disease are removed. Implants are placed into healthy bone and tissue. With a consistent oral hygiene regimen and regularly scheduled professional oral hygiene and exam appointments, your mouth can remain healthy for years.
Dental implants can preserve the health of surrounding bone and can help to keep adjoining teeth stable.
Implant supported teeth allow people to consume healthy foods, improving their diet.
Lab technician, Toni, had dental implants placed at Pi Dental Center many years ago. She asserts that, “They feel like your own teeth!”
Quality of Life
Dr. Robert Slauch affirmed, “At Pi Dental Center, our goal is to improve your quality of life that is gained through the ability to chew and smile confidently. Dental implants offer the ideal solution to achieve these goals.”
The board certified prosthodontists provide all phases of dental implant treatment from dental implant placement to restoration and follow-up care. There are may excuses, for delaying treatment, but dental implants offer numerous benefits. If you have missing or damaged teeth, don’t delay. Call Pi Dental Center to schedule an evaluation to determine whether they are right for you.
