How Dental Implants Give You Back Your Smile

Are you tired of having a smile that doesn’t match up to the one you wish you had? Your smile is an important part of your image – sort of like an accessory that you wear every day. When your smile is imperfect, it can cause physical and emotional problems. To combat these issues, we provide high-quality dental implants to patients.

Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and used to restore the smiles of more than 500,000 dental patients each year. The implantation process is often much more simple than patients initially believe it is, with a straightforward and effective plan of action that enables teeth to be restored to their former beauty. Anne Chee, DDS, and her dental team work hard to transform smiles and ensure your comfort during all dental procedure and treatments you may receive in our office.

Life After Tooth Loss

Losing a tooth, no matter what the cause, can be difficult and come with long-term consequences that many patients fail to consider. Tooth loss can happen suddenly and may be influenced by various factors, such as genetics or oral health conditions.

After losing a tooth, many people assume that they will need to lose several more in the future and get dentures or a bridge to correct their tooth loss. However, these options can be inconvenient and require additional maintenance that requires frequent visits to your dentist. Dentures can also cause a problem when eating, drinking, or speaking. Patients may develop speech difficulties or incur dramatic changes to their diet as a result of dentures.

To replace your teeth in the most natural way possible, dental implants by Anne Chee, DDS are recommended. Implants allow patients to live their lives uninterrupted without the worry of using denture creams or changing their eating habits.

Why Dental Implants Are the Superior Option

Dental experts have spent years improving dental implants to make them safe and more effective for patients dealing with tooth loss. Modern dentistry uses the most advanced dental technology and high-quality materials to deliver comfort, function, and aesthetic appeal. They can also be installed with less discomfort than ever before, making restoring your oral health a comfortable experience.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Your dentist can examine teeth to determine if patients are a good candidate for dental implants. Implants permanently replace missing teeth, so we require a very thorough evaluation to make sure that implants are the best solution for tooth loss.

Upon your visit to our office, the dentist will ask if there are any issues or problems that you have with your smile and what you would like to change about it. We will give you information about the process of implantation and what you can expect before, during, and after the procedure. There are a few things that your dentist will focus on when determining your eligibility, such as your overall health, the health of the jawbone, and your lifestyle.

Overall Health

Your general health can be a factor when it comes to dental implants and the process of healing. Some health conditions, such as diabetes, can slow down healing time and cause some challenges that require close care to overcome.

The health of the Jawbone

The jawbone is where implants will be placed, so the tissues need to be as healthy as possible. The dentist will take a look at the structural integrity of the bone in the jaw and make sure it is secure enough to support dental implants.

Your Lifestyle

Your behaviors can influence the success of dental implantation. Smoking and other negative behaviors have a negative impact and can increase healing time. It is recommended that patients speak with their dentist about anything that could negatively impact implantation.
