Does Tooth Loss Affect My Health?
Tooth loss is detrimental not only to your oral health, but also your general health. An incomplete dentition or uncomfortable conventional dentures prevent a healthy diet high in fiber and protein. Soft diets high in carbohydrates might be satisfying, but are terribly unhealthy.
Investing in implants can allow you to enjoy your favorite food, smile with confidence, and look your best.
Your Treatment Plan
Dr. Pousson will review your dental and health records, review a list of medication you are currently taking, perform a thorough dental exam, and take x-rays of your teeth, gums, and jawbone, to determine your candidacy. You will receive an easy-to-understand written comparison of your treatment options with advantages and disadvantages of each. This will help you understand all of your options and pick the one that is best for you.
Investing in Your Smile
Dental implants are the most versatile treatment in dentistry. They can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth with a bridge, support and anchor removable dentures, and much more. You can also use dental implants to prevent jawbone degeneration, which can lead to a sunken appearance and other oral complications.
Many patients choose to receive dental implants because they provide several important benefits:
With proper care, a dental implant can last the rest of your life. When comparing the cost of a dental implant to other restorative options, it is imperative to consider the longevity they offer.
