The holidays can provide such wonderful opportunities for fellowship. Gathering with friends and family for food and fun is reason enough to smile. But you might not feel much like smiling if you are missing teeth. In fact, this time of year can be downright depressing for folks who have experienced tooth loss as an adult. That’s because, not only will you not look like your old self, odds are you also won’t be able to enjoy the foods you love. As you probably know already, this is no way to go through life. But what can be done? Plenty!
Dr. Boles can help you turn things around though with a simple dental implant procedure that can be completed right here in our Fairhope, AL dentist’s office. Keep reading to hear more about this great restorative solution and then be sure to get in touch with our team to make it happen for you!
Are Dental Implants Difficult To Get?
Not at all. The procedure involves a two-part process. In the first part you will have an implant (the root) surgically inserted into your jawbone. After sufficient healing/fusion has taken place, you will have a crown placed to complete the look of your great new smile.
Does The Implant Surgery Hurt?
No! We will do everything possible to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you, including offering sedation dentistry. Plus, we are thorough in our aftercare instructions to ensure you can prevent infection. You can trust that, if you have any concerns along the way, we will always be here for you.
Do Dental Implants Feel Normal?
As a matter of fact, they do! Our implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. The artificial tooth, or crown, is custom-made to fit your mouth. It will be the right size, shape, and the perfect color to blend in with the rest of your smile.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime but they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth. Nothing too crazy will be expected of you. Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will keep you on the good road.
Are Implants The Best Solution For Me?
They could be. Still, the only way to find out for sure if dental implants are the best solution for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. When you pay us a visit in-person, we will be able to examine your mouth, take X-rays, and assess your bone structure. Then, we can move forward if it turns out to be the right treatment for your situation. Fairhope Cosmetic Dentistry is proud to offer comprehensive dental reconstruction procedures. We look forward to getting you back on track sooner rather than later!
When Can I Start?
