No matter how hard you try to take care of your teeth, there is no guarantee that you can keep them all healthy for your entire life. If you already have dentures or have one or more teeth that are missing or are too far decayed to save, it may be time to consider tooth implants. They have can improve your appearance and restore your ability to eat the foods you want. Dental implants hold many advantages over dentures, and may be the solution you are looking for.

Higher Quality of Life

People form their first impressions of you based on how you look. Let your first interaction with them be an full smile with healthy teeth. Having a mouth of healthy teeth can also be personally beneficial. You can enjoy life more when you're confident in your appearance, and that includes a beautiful smile. Tooth implants are made to be similar in color to your natural teeth, ensuring they blend in seamlessly. Permanent implant dentures can replace removable dentures to help you speak more clearly and show a flashier smile.

Better Nutrition and Health

Permanent implant dentures can help you maintain a more nutritious diet because you can eat some of the foods that you avoid with dentures. For example, you may be avoiding steak, popcorn, sticky foods, and crunchy foods, such as apples and carrots. Implants are permanent and feel just like your natural teeth. Plus, you don't ever need to take them out in order to clean them.

How the Process Works

When you decide dental implants are right for you, Dr. Connie Jacobson will guide you through the procedure from the beginning to the beautiful end. She acts as the "quarterback" of the dental implant process by leading your care and coordinating the proper steps with your oral surgeon. The oral surgeon inserts an implant into the bone below your gum, creating a permanent solution.

After your surgery, the process of osseointegration begins and your bone grows around the post of the implant. With regular check ups, Dr. Jacobson ensures that everything is going accordingly and that the following months are comfortable for you.
