At Troutman Family Dentistry, we treat patients of all types. Patients will often come to us with badly damaged teeth and believe that they will never smile confidently again. We are here to assure everyone that they should never feel like their teeth are beyond repair. Dental implant surgery is available to patients who have lost one or more teeth to damage or decay. Because of their strength, durability and natural appearance, dental implants stand out among a host of tooth restoration options. More and more patients are opting for dental implants over traditional dentures or dental crowns.
Are you ready to regain your health and confidence?
Missing teeth affect more than just the appearance of your smile. The spaces in the gums can collect debris, allow the jawbone to deteriorate and cause your self-confidence to sink. Dr. Troutman recommends that you don’t put off treatment any longer, as untreated missing teeth can have a negative impact on your overall health. The journey toward a healthier smile can seem daunting, but the team at Troutman Family Dentistry in Huntingburg is here to help you through the process. If you think that you are ready to take the first step, please contact us for a consultation and we will get started on your journey together.
While the life-span of a dental implant is greater than any other tooth replacement option, its longevity mostly depends on how you care for it. Dental implants are immune to cavities and other oral diseases, but the rest of your mouth is not. If you don’t properly care for your smile, you may develop gum disease or conditions that might require the removal of your implant. However, if you practice healthy oral hygiene habits, your implant could last for more than 25 years.
No two dental implant treatments are exactly alike, so the number of appointments, procedures, and cost of dental implants varies depending on the patient. With that said, the cost of dental implants is favorable when compared with other tooth replacement options because implants can last significantly longer — even a lifetime — with proper care.
The best way to prevent infection and dental implant failure is to keep your mouth clean. This means cleaning your mouth thoroughly after each meal, beginning the day after your procedure. At Troutman Family Dentistry, we recommend using a soft-bristled toothbrush and toothpaste that contains non-abrasive ingredients to ensure that you don’t accidentally scratch the implant or irritate the oral structures supporting it.
Tips to consider:
If you are unsure if dental implant surgery is right for you, you are not alone. Choosing to have surgery is a big decision that requires serious commitment. In a short series of office visits, we can perform an oral health evaluation and then help you decide which treatment option best suits your needs. Contact our Huntingburg office today to schedule an obligation-free consultation.
