Smile again with dental implants

By November 10, 2014 No Comments

If missing or diseased teeth have you hiding your smile, dental implants could be the solution to enhance your outward appearance and restore function.  

It has been three months since Betty Daigle underwent a mini mouth smile makeover after realizing a problem with one tooth.allon4  “There was a little bit of movement there,” she said, “and I knew that wasn’t right.”… a cosmetic dental bridge would not give Betty as natural of a feel as a dental implant and that a healthy bite would be found again with this permanent fix.  “It gives you the ability to have natural looking teeth that are pretty comfortable,” … “and they can taste the food better and chew the food that they want as well as a natural tooth would.”

A dental implant is an artificial root inserted into the jaw to replace a tooth, much like its original, natural structure, and very strong.  “The dental implant is made out of medical grade titanium, very similar to any sort of knee replacement or joint replacement,” …

The process starts with 3D X-rays to diagnose the exact problem, then surgery can be done the same day by specialist implant dentist.  “He extracted my tooth, he inserted the dental implants all at the same time,” said Betty.  “I had so little pain it was incredible.”

A custom mold is created for each patient.  The dental implant has three parts: an anchoring root, an abutment and a crown.  “That is just like a tooth which is prepared for a crown,” … “and then you put the tooth on top of it.”

Patients can undergo sedation if they are worried about feeling any pain.

Betty says she did not hurt at all and is thrilled to be showing off her full smile again.  “It’s just so incredible what he did and it’s just so complimentary to my mouth,” she said.
