How About a New Smile for Father’s Day?

What do you get the dad who has everything?

All right, maybe your father doesn’t have everything, but dads are notoriously hard to shop for. Don’t want to get him another tie? He already has too many fishing poles? You got him grill mitts last year?

Why not give him a new smile?

Years of use can take a toll on a set of teeth, and a beautiful smile does more that just look good for family photos. The state of your father’s teeth can have a dramatic effect on this health and mood.

Here at New Albany Implants, we have the solutions to make sure your father has a smile he’s proud of and will keep him looking and feeling good. Make an appointment for your father to visit our Southern Indiana office to find the smile solution that is right for him.

Looking Good

For better or worse, the way you look has a significant effect on your quality of life. Missing teeth cause gaps in your smile that may be embarrassing, especially if they are in the front. Even missing back teeth can be a problem cosmetically because the gaps can cause your other teeth to spread out, creating large spaces between your teeth.

These spaces can make you feel self conscious and insecure about your smile. If you become insecure to the point that you hesitate to smile in public, then you are limiting your ability to effectively communicate. Smiling is the non-verbal way in which humans express joy and confidence. When you hide your smile you may be sending the wrong message to those around who may assume, based on your body language, that you are unhappy or unfriendly.

If you suspect your father may not be happy with his smile, then a trip to New Albany Implants for an examination may be the perfect gift.

Feeling Good

Giving him a beautiful and confident smile is not the only reason to consider tooth replacement as a gift for Dad this Father’s’ Day. The health of your teeth has a direct influence on the health of the rest of your body. Your ability to chew determines what type of foods you can eat. For the most part, healthy foods that are rich in nutrients and dietary fiber require a lot of chewing, which means you need some healthy teeth. If chewing is difficult because of pain and discomfort due to tooth decay or missing teeth, then you are more likely to choose softer, less healthy foods that are easy on unhealthy teeth. Or even worse, you may avoid eating altogether, which will lead to malnourishment.

Don’t let missing teeth put your dad’s health at risk, bring him to New Albany Implants to keep him healthy and smiling.

Dental Implants

Dental implants will give your dad the look and feel of his natural teeth, while functioning in the way. When he comes to our office in Southern Indiana, he will be greeted by our friendly and welcoming staff. We will use advanced dental imaging, like the Galileos 3D cat scan, to evaluate your father’s dental needs and then consult with him to determine the best course of action.

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted onto your jaw. Once they heal they will be bonded with the jawbone, essentially creating a synthetic root. We will secure a dental crown to the post, giving you a new tooth.

Dental implants look and act like natural teeth, so your father will be to eat healthily and smile proudly with his new set of teeth.

Sedation Dentistry

If your father is one of the millions who suffer from dental anxiety, don’t worry. New Albany Implants practices sedation dentistry, which provides a pain free solution to fear and anxiety about dental work.

There are various levels of sedations available to treat various level of anxiety. Nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas”, is an inhaled sedative that treats mild anxiety. It will relax you just enough to put your mind at while staying completely aware and conscious during your procedure. Oral sedation is a higher level of sedation for a higher level of anxiety. This sedative, delivered as a pill, will put you in a deep state of relaxation, but you will remain conscious and somewhat aware. Some patients have been known to doze off under oral sedation, but they are easily roused with a nudge. IV sedation, however, will put you totally under, so no amount of nudging will wake you until the sedative wears offs. This type of sedation is perfect for someone with extreme dental anxiety, or phobia. It also works well for someone needs a lot of work done so several procedures can completed in one visit.
