Dental Implants Are A Permanent Solution To Tooth Loss

Welcome back to another December edition of the Oregon City Family Dentistry blog! We are the true family dentist office in Oregon City, OR, since we are led by a husband and wife team. And we would love to earn the trust of your family when it comes to providing all the oral health care you will need throughout your life.

As it is almost a new year, we wanted to remind you to hurry in and make use of any remaining insurance benefits you are entitled to for the current calendar year. Otherwise, we’ll be happy to see you in 2016!

By the way, did you know that a beaver has about 20 teeth, and its front teeth never stop growing? That’s why beavers are always gnawing on wood. It makes for a fun fact, right? Unfortunately, human teeth do not keep regenerating. And once you have lost one as an adult, you will need to find a solution as soon as possible. This is because your health will be at risk and you will also lose the self-confidence that goes along with looking your best.

Oral Health And General Wellness

After tooth loss, it will be difficult and painful to chew certain foods, especially the ones containing fiber. That will be bad for you because fiber is involved in regulating so many important bodily functions and keeping strokes and weight gain at bay.

As such, you will be compelled to alter your eating habits and go for foods that are a less difficult to chew but not as as beneficial for your health.

Besides not being able to eat right, you might also be at a higher risk of oral infections. What’s more, your healthy teeth will attempt to shift in an effort to compensate for the empty spaces in your smile.

That doesn’t sound like fun, does it?

All of these factors are part of why your overall well being will be comprimised after losing teeth.

But wait, it gets worse!

You Won’t Look Like Yourself

As you can see, tooth loss will wreak havoc on your general health and it can also change the way you look and feel, which in turn will affect the way that others look at you as well.

Tooth loss is embarrassing. And your self-esteem will likely take a nose-dive. You probably won’t go around mirrors much. You may become self-conscious about sharing conversation, a laugh, or a meal around other people.

The hard-to-miss holes in your smile will be odd enough, but after your cheeks cave-in, you will also appear to be a much older version of yourself. The normal existence you were used to will be a thing of the past until you take corrective action.

Still, you don’t have to let tooth loss take away your life. Your Oregon City, OR dentist has an easy and permanent solution for you: dental implants.

OC Family Dentistry Is Here To Help

We know how difficult this sort of situation can be. That’s why you can trust us to be kind and compassionate as we get your smile back on track.

We can turn things around quickly by setting you up with implant artificial replacement teeth and roots that will look and feel just like the real thing.

What does that entail?

Basically, you can take back your former health and happiness with a two-step dental procedure from Oregon City Family Dentistry.

Our dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into your jawbone. The implant will fuse with the bone over time, creating a new “root.”

After you have healed enough from the first part, a custom crown will be screwed onto the post, leaving you with a brand new “tooth” that will blend in well with the rest of your teeth.

You will be astonished by the end results, as will everyone else you know. Moreover, implants can return to you the ability to eat the foods you love, with the people you love.

It won’t be long before you start to look better and feel normal.

After completing the process, you will definitely feel like smiling! And you will have a great start to a new year and your new life.

How does that grab you?
