Hello and welcome to another summer edition of the Greenstein Dental blog! We are your trusted source for comprehensive dentistry solutions in Miami, Florida.
Today we wanted to talk about adult tooth loss, a scenario that many folks in the Sunshine State are struggling through.
When it happens to you, it can be a life-upsetting, trauma-creating occasion that disrupts your general health along with your appearance and self-assurance.
If you are missing teeth, you won’t feel like sharing your less than full smile and you won’t have the chewing power that it takes to enjoy the foods you used to love.
This is the sad reality for you until you take the steps necessary to permanently address the problem at hand. But don’t worry, we are ready to help you take back your life. To make that happen, dental implants are the best bet.
But before you move forward with investing in your future happiness, you may have some questions about the process.
That’s why we have assembled a few of the things that tend to come up during a dental implant consultation. Read on, and then be sure to get in touch to schedule your appointment with Dr. Greenstein. We are confident that you’ll be happy with the end results.
Are You Equipped To Get The Job Done?
Yes! Dr. Greenstein has extensively studied dental implants in order to be able to provide this ground-breaking treatment.
Here’s how we do it: The implant procedure requires two steps. First we will insert a titanium post into your jawbone that functions as a root for your replacement tooth.
Then we will restore it with a crown, the part that looks like a tooth.
Will The Implant Surgery Hurt?
No. We will do everything possible to make it a pain-free and pleasant experience for you. That includes employing sedation dentistry techniques to guarantee that your visit is smooth and comfortable.
How Long Will I Have To Wait For My Teeth?
Depending upon your individual situation, temporary restorations may be placed the same day so that you can immediately look and feel much better. Final restorations will follow after the requisite number of months for healing take place.
Are Dental Implants Comfortable?
Yes! Our implants are crafted to feel like your natural teeth. They’re given enough time to securely fuse with your jawbone and are the same size of a real root. No other artificial option even comes close to feeling this comfortable.
Will Implants Help Restore My Appearance?
For Sure! Remember: your smile will be full again. And there will be more facial structure support (i.e. no more sunken-in cheeks). So, your appearance will definitely get a boost as will your self-assurance.
How Long Will Dental Implants Last?
We are pleased to report that dental implants are designed to last a lifetime but they will require some maintenance, just like your real teeth.
Brushing twice a day for two or more minutes, flossing and rinsing regularly, and visiting the dentist every three to six months will keep you on track.
Are Implants The Best Bet For Me?
Honestly, the only way to determine if dental implants are the best solution for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. When you pay us a visit in-person, Dr. Greenstein will be able to examine your mouth, take digital X-rays, and assess your bone structure. After that, we can move forward if appropriate.
