Smile More for Less!

Why Are Dental Implants So Popular?

Do you know dental implants are the most popular service that dentistry has to offer!  That’s because they are versatile and can be used in many different ways.

They can help stabilize dentures, replace missing teeth or even a full set of teeth.

Implants make it possible for you to smile with confidence once again. With implants as a replacement for dentures you will no longer need to deal with messy adhesives or glue. You know longer have to swallow the glue and get sick from it.  No more gagging on dentures.

Start tasting your food again!

Dental implants make it possible for you to eat corn on the cob or an apple without hesitation.

Many people smoke and and are told that they are not a candidate for dental implants. This is NOT true!. Virtually everyone is a candidate for dental implants and, for those who smoke, it may take a little longer to heal but it doesn’t mean that they are not good candidates.

Whether you lost your teeth from periodontal disease or from cavities or trauma, dental implants can help restore your smile.

Another reason that dental implants are so popular is because they prevent the typical bone deterioration that occurs once the tooth is removed.  When teeth are removed, bone has a tendency to dissolve away leading to changes in the jaw and face.  Sometimes you may hear the term “bone grafting” with implants.  That’s because we need to build up the bone to provide a solid foundation for implants to adhere too.

At Shine Dental Associates of the North Shore, when dental implants are placed, you can go to work the same day.  Minimal discomfort and swelling occurs.  No more than Tylenol or Advil is typically used.  Sedation is always available.
