Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the most convenient solution for replacing your missing teeth. And once Dr. Anderson adds them to your smile, you’ll care for them the same way you take care of your regular teeth—brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits.
Furthermore, dental implants are the only tooth-replacement option that boosts your long-term health and reverses any adverse effects of living with tooth loss. They reduce the likelihood that you’ll suffer from gum disease, a condition that can lead to additional tooth loss.
You’re a Candidate for Implants if:
You Want a Permanent Restoration
At Gentle Dental, our dental implants are designed to last. This long-term solution requires minimal upkeep and visits to see Dr. Anderson. With the correct care, your dental implants can outlast your natural teeth.
You Want to Smile Confidently Again
Dr. Anderson understands the embarrassment associated with being toothless. For this reason, he recommends revitalizing your smile with our beautiful dental implants.
Beyond restoring the function of your smile, dental implants renew the size, shape, and color of your smile. There are three parts to an implant: the fixture, the abutment, and the crown. Of those three parts, the porcelain crown is the only portion anyone will see.
At Gentle Dental, we create our crowns from beautiful tooth-colored porcelain. Moreover, while porcelain looks fantastic, it can still withstand the bite forces and pressure encompassed in your smile.
You Want a Restoration That Won’t Move
Unlike awkward dentures, we secure dental implants in your jaw. The implant fixture acts as the root of your natural teeth, creating a stable foundation for the rest of the implant.
If you currently wear dentures and are looking for a more stable solution, dental implants may be for you. They’ll let you speak, eat, laugh, and smile as you please without having to worry about them falling out, causing you to slur your words, or accidentally salivate.
You Want to Look Younger
Like we discussed above, dental implants are a healthy way to restore your smile because they act as a placeholder for your missing teeth.
If your smile has gaps in it, your natural teeth can begin to shift out of place, and your jawbone will deteriorate. When this happens, your cheeks and mouth will start to sink.
By using dental implants, you can skip the sinking and preserve the natural shape of your face, making you look and feel younger than you have in a long time.
Preparing for Dental Implants
Some of our patients require supplemental treatment before they can get dental implants. The causes can include gum disease, tooth decay, and diminished jawbone density, but they aren’t limited to these options.
Fortunately, Dr. Anderson offers a variety of treatment options to help prepare your smile for implants. Some of the solutions he features are bone grafting, sinus augmentation, gum grafting, and ridge modification.
The best way to know if you need supplemental treatment before you begin the implant process is to contact our Gunnison practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Anderson. During this meeting, he’ll answer any questions you have and provide a thorough examination of your mouth to decide if dental implants are right for you.
