Replacing teeth with dental implants is a life-changing decision any time of the year. But it’s never more true than in the summer, a season that’s full of occasions when both the appearance and function of your smile are especially important. If you’re still looking for a reason to get implants, we’ve presented some of them for you here.
If you’re still on the fence about a dental implants procedure because you’re concerned about the expense, consider our special offer of a bundle of dental implants services. For $3,000, you will get all of the services you’re likely to need to replace a single tooth with a dental implant:
- A tooth extraction
- Bone grafts (if needed)
- The implant itself
- The abutment we use to attach your replacement tooth to the implant
- Your replacement tooth/permanent crown
In some cases, additional fees and exclusions may apply. The best way to find out more about this offer is to call Appalachian Dental Care at 828-355-5673.
Replace Any Number of Teeth With a Dental Implants Procedure
If you need more than one implant, you can replace multiple teeth with an implant-supported dental bridge. Or you can even use dental implant dentures for a full-mouth teeth replacement.
Thanks to his expertise with implants, Dr. Steven Airey can perform an All-on-4, a dental implants procedure that uses just four implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth. With an All-on-4, it’s often possible to receive both your implants and your new teeth in a single appointment!
Dr. Airey places implants at an angle to increase their contact with your jaw, which makes it possible to support your new teeth. Since fewer implants are used, you’ll spend less time in our office and probably not need a bone graft. To find out if you’re a candidate for this dental implants procedure, call us today.
In the meantime, here are some reasons that summer is a great time to get dental implants.
It’s Easier to Eat Summer Foods With Implants
Missing or damaged teeth make it pretty hard to enjoy summer cookouts like you once did. If you wear dentures, you probably steer clear of some of the most delicious cookout foods like corn-on-the-cob, ribs, and juicy steaks. It’s tough to enjoy those kinds of foods, since you may worry about your dentures slipping out of place or even comng loose while you’re eating them.
If your dentures are secured with dental implants, they’ll stay firmly in place! After Dr. Airey embeds dental implants in your jaw, your bone grows around them in a process called osseointegration. This means your dentures aren’t just resting on your gums and relying on suction to stay in place. They’re securely attached to your implants, which function a lot like your natural tooth roots.
Smile More at Social Events With Dental Implants
If you’re like many of us you may have a calendar full of special occasions in the summer, like graduations, weddings, reunions, and vacation. These events provide lots of opportunities to make memories – and to take photos to help preserve them. If you’ve got missing teeth or other dental damage, you may end up wearing a closed-mouth smile in photos. You might even find yourself hiding your smile behind your hand when greeting friends and family.
The result is, you’ll enjoy these events less than you would with a full and confident smile. No matter how many teeth you’re missing, that’s exactly what a dental implants procedure can give you!
Enjoy Improved Oral Health With Dental Implants
While dental implants offer many great benefits, we think the biggest one is Improved oral health. Since you’ll have the ability to eat many more kinds of foods, you’ll be able to make more nutritious choices. With the ability to chew them thoroughly, you’ll also enjoy improved digestion.
It’s easier to clean your teeth with implants, because you probably won’t need a special oral hygiene routine. You’ll just brush and floss your teeth the way you did before. This makes it easier to prevent cavities and gum disease.
Perhaps the biggest oral health benefit, though, is that biocompatible dental implants fuse with your own jawbone and function like natural tooth roots, stimulating your jaw whenever you chew. (Remember that special process called osseointegration?) This stimulation stops the bone and tissue loss that results when you lose teeth. With implants, your jaw remains strong and healthy. Your face won’t get that sunken-in look seen in many dentures wearers.
