When Dental Implants Become Necessary
Those who are missing teeth or who have chipped teeth often experience pain while eating and talking. This can make it difficult to live comfortably day to day. e.s.i. Healthy Dentistry’s Dr. Dimitrios Kilimitzoglou offers dental implants as a solution for pain and discomfort.
When placed in the mouth, dental implants provide strength for daily activities, restore functionality, and produce an aesthetically-pleasing look. But when does it become necessary for a patient to have dental implants installed?
There are numerous reasons why a dental implant may become necessary, but mainly, if you are already missing a tooth, a dental implant can be a good option for those who wish for a more aesthetically pleasing smile.
There are some signs to be on the lookout for when it comes to dental implants. A tooth may need to be extracted if there is tooth infection as well, so it is important to understand that a dental implant will be just as strong and durable as any healthy tooth in your mouth.
Those with dentures may also consider tooth implants as a more permanent solution, as denture maintenance and adhesives can be difficult to deal with. A broken or damaged tooth or teeth may also require removal, and dental implants can be an important next step to consider.
Dental implants can become necessary for several other important reasons, but mainly, if it becomes too difficult to chew food due to missing teeth, it may be time to consider dental implants. Replacing your missing teeth with implants is an effective way to be able to properly eat again, and will also eliminate discomfort.
The procedure for receiving dental implants usually takes place over several months. However, using cutting edge technology known as Noble Guide™, Dr. K drastically reduces time spent in the office. Through the use of a CT scan and computer software, dental implant surgery can be planned virtually, allowing for the most accurate results.
