Well, implants that take the place of missing teeth provide 90% of the chewing force of the natural teeth they replace. That’s the closest thing a dentist can provide to giving you back the teeth function you had at 19 years old! So the truth is that we can’t reverse the effects of old age, but we really can enhance the quality of your life by increasing your oral health. It’s almost like getting in shape physically, you are still the age that you are, but you feel and look younger and the opposite sex notices this…and that’s a good thing!
Not only that, but, no matter how you add up the costs, dental implants will provide you with greater long-term value than conventional removable dentures.
The biggest benefit our patients say that implants bring them?
THEY RESTORE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.
And they feel strongly that, with the positive results they’ve experienced from their dental implants, that they would easily make the investment of time and money again and again – because their everyday lives are suddenly so much better.
It’s great when patients share stories about showing up at a family get-together and really enjoying themselves for the first time in years, because they can eat what they want and not have to worry about their dentures falling out in front of their loved ones.
If you don’t know what dental implants are all about, they’re easily the best replacement option for missing teeth that we have at our disposal today. Small posts made of titanium(a biocompatible material that works naturally with your existing bone) are surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Over time, they integrate naturally, prevent bone loss in the lower third of your face, and function much like the root of a tooth. A crown, bridge, or denture will then be supported by the implants.
Whether they’re used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, implants are secure, give you back your youthful bite and create a solid foundation for a healthy, confident smile as you grow older.
People commonly ask us if anyone will know that they have Implants. The answer is no. The implant itself is hidden within the bone. Implants allow for a natural, good-looking smile as well as a strong biting function; they’ve been proven to help preserve the health and level of existing bone as well, giving you a more youthful appearance.
So, if you’re missing teeth, how do you find out if you’re a candidate for implants?
Easy. Simply call us at 614-808-1700 and schedule a free consultation. I only do a limited number of these, as I’m busy caring for my other patients, so please call at your earliest convenience.
I think you’ll be very happy with the results of this exciting procedure.
