Missing teeth can have a profound impact on your everyday life. Not only do they leave gaps in your smile that give your other teeth room to shift, those gaps can also make eating some of your favorite summertime foods a little bit painful. Sometimes, if enough teeth are missing, it can even sideline your efforts to enjoy corn on the cob, barbecue, and other summertime favorites. Luckily, there are options for replacing missing teeth that can restore function, and the best part is that when you choose dental implants as your replacement option, the recovery time is quite fast.
Other Benefits of Implants
On top of the dietary benefits, implants also bring these improvements to your smile:
Don’t let the summer pass you by, find out if you are a candidate for dental implants today.
Who Is a Candidate for Implants?
Practically anyone who is missing one or more teeth. Implants can replace a single tooth or serve as a total replacement for a complete set of teeth.
How Do They Work?
Implants are anchored to your jaw in a surgical procedure that does involve anesthesia. Recovery times are brief, usually under a week, and those anchors are strong enough to support the replacement teeth, which are fitted in the same procedure under almost all circumstances. There are some dietary restrictions during recovery, but within a few days most patients are eating their favorite foods again.
The first step in getting yourself set up with a great set of implants is talking to the dentist. Contact our office today to make an appointment with Dr. Delrose. Our associates are ready to take your call during regular office hours. We serve patients in Ellenton and Bradenton, FL.
