Implants: The Better Choice For Missing Teeth
Now that 2016 is almost over, it’s a good time to reflect on all the goals that have not yet been accomplished and put a plan into action. For instance, if you are living without teeth, you know that a great smile is not all that you are missing. Your menu options are likely limited on account of your diminished chewing power, your health is probably on the decline, and you just won’t feel much like socializing.
That is no way to live. Obviously you will want to find a solution and fast. But you won’t want to create more problems for yourself by getting dentures or some other makeshift treatment.
While they have had a place in earlier eras of dentistry, dentures often cause public humiliation and they slip and slide like crazy and fail to give you the assurance, appearance, and biting power you need to reclaim your old life.
So, if you are fed up with the pain, discomfort, hassle, shame, and agony associated with dentures and lost teeth, Dr. Ron can help turn things around with one of our easy dental implant procedures.

You Don’t Have To Settle For Dentures
Here’s the thing: dentures, regardless of what they are made of, have always been something you insert into your mouth and hope they will stay in place without any kind of anchor.
It won’t be long before you experience the limitations of such an enterprise!
Yes, dentures have improved the lives of countless individuals over the years. Modern dentures are supposed to form a suction seal with your palate and gum arches to give make them more comfortable and reliable. It might actually work at first, but it doesn’t take long before the usual headaches take over.
What’s more, if you are a denture wearer, your bathroom cabinet is probably overflowing with special cleaning supplies, soaking cups, cases, and other cumbersome accessories for your artificial teeth.
Since they are notoriously hard to keep clean, denture patients are way more likely to suffer from respiratory infections like MRSA and pneumonia, along with other bacterial illnesses that receive easy access to your body through your mouth.
In the end, why would you want to live in fear of social interaction, or in near-constant discomfort, or chance slipping into even poorer health?
You know that you deserve a better fate than that, and we can change your life forever with dental implants!
Dental Implants Are The Best Bet
Dr. Ron will walk you through the process during your consultation. BUt here are the basics: your dental implant will be a screw about the size of a natural tooth root, that is surgically inserted into your jaw. Don’t worry, it will be a pain-free procedure and we have multiple options of sedation available to calm your nerves ahead of time.
The implant will be left to heal for a number of weeks, but once you receive your final restoration (a crown or other device) your dental implant will act almost exactly like a natural tooth.
Ultimately you will get the stability, reliability, durability and support that a regular tooth would give without any of the hassle of dentures.
Whatever your situation may be, we can probably help. Dental implants are able to be used to replace a single tooth, partial dentures, or even your complete dentures.
