April 16th is Stress Awareness Day and it is designed to help people understand the role stress plays in their lives and learn how to deal with it more effectively. Many people overlook small daily sources of stress without realizing that these issues can have just as much of an impact on quality of life. If you have missing teeth, smiling, eating and speaking can be daily sources of stress that can reduce your happiness. Dental implants can be an excellent treatment option to reduce stress and improve your quality of life. Dr. Lindsay Eastman, Dr. Christie Eastman Craighead and Dr. Justin Craighead are experienced periodontists who provide dental implants and a variety of other effective treatments for tooth and gum issues.

What to Expect During Your Appointment

The first part of dental implant surgery involves placing the metal implants into the jawbone at the appropriate locations. Once Dr. Eastman has placed the implants, he can attach the tooth replacements. Dental implants can replace individual missing teeth or can be used to support full-arch dentures on the lower or upper jaw. Most people find the implant procedure fairly minor with minimal pain and a quick recovery time.

How Dental Implants Improve Daily Life

Missing teeth make daily activities, including speaking, smiling, eating and dental hygiene stressful and even painful. Dental implants can make your life more comfortable and offer many other benefits as well, including:

● Custom-made crowns match your natural teeth
● Implants feel comfortable and are permanent
● Patients have no food restrictions
● Implants stimulate healthy jawbone tissue growth to preserve facial shape
