Patient Testimonial: Eileen Wren
One of those patients was Eileen Wren. She came to us for x-rays after a severe fall. Her chin slammed and her teeth smacked together. At first glance, it didn’t seem like anything was the matter. However, after x-rays, she discovered that she had fractures in her four front teeth on her upper jaw.
As one of our favorite smiles, it was a challenge to figure out how to make sure Eileen kept it. She expected to have nice tooth replacements but she didn’t expect them to actually look like her teeth. With the handiwork of Dr. Auster, she ended up with a smile that looked almost exactly like the one she had before her fall. Her replacement teeth blend in with that beautiful smile perfectly.
Dental Implants for Restorative Dentistry
If you’re missing teeth or require tooth extractions for damage or trauma, you’ll need some form of tooth replacement. Missing teeth have a big impact on your self-esteem and can also make it difficult to perform normal functions like eating or speaking. Not having teeth can have an impact on your oral health as well, leading to gum recession and bone loss in the jaw.
With dental implants, you get the gold standard of tooth replacement. They look and feel the most natural in your mouth. This is because they’re the only replacement option that replaces the tooth root as well as the crown. You get more stability than with other options, as well as having the full use of the function of your mouth.
With other tooth replacement options, you may have to limit your diet, practice a specific oral health routine, and worry about slippage or adhesives. None of these things is a problem with dental implants. Your diet doesn’t have to be limited and there are no adhesives needed as they’re implanted in your jaw. Your oral care routine only has to be normal brushing and flossing, as well as regular dental cleanings and checkups.
Dental implants have the added benefit of stopping jawbone loss. Placing the implant posts in the jawbone encourages regeneration of the bone, as it needs to fuse with the post. This gives you the extra stability dental implants provide.
