The holidays are a time to spend with family and friends, enjoy good food and partake in all that is good in the world. If you are insecure or self-conscious about your smile, it can be difficult to relax even around those you love the most, not to mention the yummy food you may miss out on. Don’t worry, Dr. Eastman has a solution for you with dental implants!
Why Choose Implants?
There are so many benefits to dental implants that it’s hard to narrow them down. One of the things patients enjoy most is the fact that the implant functions just like a normal tooth, and you can eat whatever you want. You never have to remove your tooth for cleaning and it won’t accidentally slip out when you are in public.
Dental implants also prove their worth over time. The cost may seem high up front, but the reality is that if they are taken care of correctly they can last for decades. This means lower costs for maintenance and it’s unlikely that you will ever have to replace an implant.
If you have missing teeth, you probably just want your old smile back. Implants can give you that. They function exactly like the natural tooth and each implant is made to fit the mouth of the specific patient. This means that any implants you get match the color of your remaining teeth exactly and there is no discomfort once the final implant is placed.
One of the major health benefits of implants is the preservation of the jawbone. The titanium rod is placed right into the jawbone and over time, the cells connect, and the rod stimulates the bone to keep growing. Without that rod or root, the bone can crumble, and the teeth can shift.
