We Can Make Your Life Better With Dental Implants

Welcome back to another edition of our ongoing Alabama dental blog!

At Perrigo Dental Care, our team strives to meet all of your ever-changing oral health needs.

In our Hoover, AL office, on Patton Chapel Road, we offer preventive care for the whole family, migraine and headache solutions, Fastbraces, emergency care, and more.

Dental implant surgery is one such procedure.

We can assure you that implants from Perrigo Dental Care can permanently change your life for the better, and we are not just referring to your appearance.

What Are Implants All About?

Dental implants are normally performed on people who have severely damaged or missing teeth.

You might find yourself in this situation as the result of an accident or emergency.

Or perhaps you have let gum disease or tooth decay go untreated.

Regardless of how it happened, you will want to quickly address the situation before it gets any worse.

Our implants function as replacement “teeth” with strong artificial roots.

They will help you quickly and permanently recapture the natural look and optimal operation of your mouth.

Here’s Something To Chew On

Did you know that we can usually look into your mouth and get a pretty good sense of your overall health?
This is because there are often tell-tale signs of other issues to be found there.

And sometimes dental issues are correlated to larger concerns.

For instance, gum disease is linked to heart disease and some types of cancer.

Beyond all that, having healthy teeth allows you to eat whatever you want, which is so very important.

In fact, one of the biggest benefits to having a complete set of fully-functional teeth is that you can eat fiber-rich foods.

Why is that so important?

Because fiber helps keep your heart healthy.

It also keeps your daily digestion on track and plays a role in regulating your blood sugar and preventing weight gain.

Fiber also keeps hemorrhoids at bay!

And it diminishes your risk of having a stroke.

Fiber isn’t something you would want to go without.

But you might have to if you have missing or damaged teeth.

That’s because foods full of fiber are hard to chew.

In short order, you will be conditioned to adapt your eating habits.

You will likely forego healthy options in favor of foods that are less good for you but also less difficult to chew and digest.

Eventually your tooth-loss diet will wreak havoc on your general wellbeing.

Implants Will Improve Your Outlook On Life

Following tooth loss, you might start avoiding friends, family, and mirrors (in addition to those fiber-rich foods).

With gaping holes in your smile and caved-in cheeks that add years to your appearance, you won’t want anyone to notice, even yourself.

Things that you previously took for granted like talking, sharing a laugh, and breaking bread with loved ones, will cause you much discomfort and embarrassment.

Luckily, with modern technology at our disposal, Perrigo Dental Care can craft dental implants for you that will greatly improve your outlook on life.

How Do They Work?

Dental implants are a permanent solution that mimic the function and look of your natural teeth.

In most cases, they will make you appear younger and allow you to live longer.

Plus, the placement process is easy to endure.

First, a titanium post is inserted into your jaw and allowed to fuse with your bone for several months.

Once this has happened, you will then come back to receive your crown, and you will be good to go.

The whole dental implant procedure is done in-house here at Perrigo Dental Care.

That way, you can be confident that you are in good hands while we make your implant more affordable, comfortable and convenient than other practices who outsource these procedures.
