Adult tooth loss can be a painful and traumatic experience, regardless of how it happens. Plus, it can ruin your smile and take the pleasure out of eating. Today, we want to give you three response scenarios to consider. When you are finished reading, we hope that you will want to take meaningful action by calling us at 248-712-1522 to schedule your dental implant or dentures consultation in Royal Oak, MI.
- Ignore The Problem
You’d be surprised by how many patients decide to do nothing about replacing their missing teeth. Or at least they decide to put it off until a “someday” that never comes. There are a few problems with that kind of response.
Putting off your restorative treatment won’t be good for your confidence since your appearance changes drastically after tooth loss.
If you are missing all of your teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, you’ll lose much of the functionality of your bite. You won’t be able to eat the foods you used to love, and the fiber-rich foods that keeps you healthy. No more evenings at Clawson Steak House for you!
Fortunately, there are other responses to tooth loss.
- Try Removable Dentures
For many folks, removable dentures are a great way to replace multiple teeth and make it more possible to bite into things. Modern dentures are more lifelike than in earlier eras and they are much more durable. At our Royal Oak, MI dentists’ office, we can give you partial dentures (this would be for large gaps in your smile) or full dentures (when you have experienced complete tooth loss).
Please keep in mind that our dentures do look great, and this response is far better than doing nothing, but functionality is still going to be an issue. Unfortunately, it’s still difficult to get a good fit with dentures. So, there won’t be as much biting power as with natural teeth, and they may slip and slide around your mouth.
- Take Back Your Smile With Dental Implants
This is the response we suggest! Our Dental implants are the strongest teeth replacement option available. This solution is better than dentures (and, obviously, better than doing nothing). They just about match the power of your natural teeth and can last the rest of your lifetime with proper care.
A dental implant is built to last. It’s made of titanium, a material that naturally fuses with your jawbone. That means you can secure your new teeth and enjoy a more gorgeous grin. Because implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth, you can eat whatever you want again after your implant procedure. Hello Clawson Steak House!
