WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS ALL ABOUT?
An accident, emergency, or untreated gum disease can cause you to lose one or more tooth as an adult. That won’t be good for your health or happiness, we can assure you. As such, you will want to let Dr. Perrigo address the situation right away before it gets any worse.
In our Hoover, AL dentist’s office, we have a great restorative solution: dental implants. Our implants function as replacement “teeth” with strong artificial roots. They will help you quickly and permanently recapture the natural look and optimal performance of your mouth.
Chew On This
Having healthy teeth allows you to eat whatever you want, whenever you want, which is so very important when it comes to your overall health and wellness.
In fact, one of the biggest benefits to having a complete set of fully-functional teeth is that you can eat fiber-rich foods. You see, 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.
All that is to say that fiber isn’t something you would want to go without for long. But you might have to if you have missing or damaged teeth. That’s because foods full of fiber are hard to chew. So, your newly acquired tooth-loss diet will wreak havoc on your general wellbeing.
Your Looks Will Suffer
Following tooth loss as an adult, you might find yourself 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, and you won’t want to remind yourself.
Things that you used to take for granted like good conversation, sharing a laugh, and taking a meal with friends, will cause you much discomfort and embarrassment.
We Can Help!
Fortunately, with modern dental tools at our disposal, Perrigo Dental Care can craft dental implants for you that will greatly improve your outlook on life. These are not like the false teeth that were available in earlier eras of dentistry.
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.
Here’s how it works: First, a titanium post is inserted into your jaw and allowed to fuse with your bone for several months. Once the healing has happened, you will then come back to receive your crown, and you will be good to go.
You can be confident that you are in good hands with us overseeing the process. And we will make every effort to ensure your comfort while you are here.
