There are many things we can do to ensure our good health. One thing often overlooked when thinking of our overall health is our dental health. Some might feel that a missing tooth is no big deal, however a conversation with Dr. Nicholas Kemp, your Yorkville dental implant provider, can explain to you why that misconception is critical to your good health.
An open space where a tooth should be might impact your diet by altering the quality of foods you’re able to eat. One answer to resolve this issue is a dental implant.
You used to smile all the time, but now feel very self-conscious. That gap can be corrected by a visit to your implant dentist, and you’re able to smile and be happy again.
Even your speech has been impacted because of that missing tooth. An investment certainly worth investigating is a dental implant.
A dental implant works much like your own natural tooth. Your implant dentist will place a device that resembles a small screw into your gum tissue. For the next four to six months, the implant is allowed to heal and graft to your bone.
Once this portion of your treatment is completed, the implant provides strength and stability to your final restoration. In addition to being virtually undetectable from your natural teeth, the implant is now a permanent addition that allows you to eat your favorite healthy foods, smile broadly and speak naturally again.
Your time and financial investment can’t be measured in the joy you will experience at the conclusion of your treatment. And because this is an investment in your good health, it is important to do all you can to ensure the success of your dental implants.
Quit smoking, practice excellent oral hygiene, and visit your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and exams to keep your dental implants and natural teeth in good health.
Keeping all of your own natural teeth is a goal for everyone. But if one or more teeth are lost due to trauma, disease or are missing for any reason, it is good to know that there is a solution that our implant dentist can offer, allowing you to return to the normal life you enjoyed before that loss.
