Are you missing one, multiple, or even a full arch of teeth? If so, dental implants could be a great option for you. Whether your tooth is damaged and needs to be extracted, or is missing altogether, Dr. Troutman will provide you with the best implant solution for you.
Our natural-looking dental implants will complete your smile and improve your appearance.
When you’re missing one or more teeth, you may find it more difficult to properly form your words. This can make you more hesitant when speaking to others. Gaps in your smile can also make it more challenging for you to eat your favorite foods.
Dental implants will give you full control and restore your jaw’s functionality. You’ll no longer have to hide your smile when you talk because you’re embarrassed by the appearance of your teeth or limit yourself to certain foods. Instead, you’ll be able to eat and speak confidently, and live life the way you want to.
If you’ve ever avoided a social event or found yourself smiling less around other people, then you know about the negative effects missing teeth can have on your relationships.
Dental implants will make you want to smile more and will boost your self-confidence. You’ll no longer have to hide your teeth in social situations, which will improve your relationships and help you create new ones.
Missing teeth can be dangerous to your health. They leave your gums vulnerable to infection and decay, which can also lead to conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
If you’re looking to protect both your oral and overall health, then dental implants may be right for you. They’ll eliminate the gaps in your teeth and protect your gums from bacteria. This will decrease your risk for disease and help you to live a longer, happier life.
If you suffer from gum disease, we’ll need to eliminate the infection before starting your dental implant treatment. Gum disease interferes with the jawbone’s ability to heal properly around the titanium implant fixture, causing the procedure to fail. At your initial consultation with Dr. Troutman, he’ll discuss the steps needed for taking care of your gum disease before we start the dental implant process.
No, children can’t receive dental implants. Since children’s jawbones are still growing, placing dental implants can lead to misalignment and further health issues over time. Until a patient’s jawbone is fully developed, they’re not candidates for dental implant treatment.
In most cases, yes! We offer implant-supported dentures, giving patients the best of both worlds, combining the convenience of dentures with the stability and long-term health benefits of dental implants. If you’ve suffered from bone loss in your jaw or you have gum disease, a supplemental procedure can prepare you for dental implant placement.
Missing teeth can affect more than just your appearance. They can also affect your health and relationships as well. If you want to restore your smile and start living a happier life, you may be a candidate for dental implants.
