Happy 2022! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday season with family and friends, traveling, or doing what makes you happy. Speaking of happiness, are you happy with your oral health? The start of a new year is the perfect time to consider making the necessary changes to your smile that will improve your quality of life. If you have been delaying a treatment, now is the perfect time to schedule your appointment. Or if you need a tooth replacement, there is no better time to start the process. There is one option that you should consider due to the many benefits it offers patients. Read on to learn more about this permanent tooth replacement option.
Have you recently lost a tooth or have had a missing tooth for quite some time and are deciding whether it should be replaced? There are a number of reasons why a tooth might be missing. It might have been extracted due to extreme decay, experienced trauma or damage following an accident, or was removed due to severe gum disease. No matter the reason for the missing tooth, we believe our patients should always choose a tooth replacement.
If you have young children or think back to your youth, there is nothing quite like the excitement of losing your teeth. Wiggling the tooth back and forth until it falls out is a moment of pure joy for children. Then comes the fun of putting the tooth under the pillow for the tooth fairy and eagerly waiting to see what is left in exchange for the tooth. Unfortunately, that same excitement is not the same as you age and you are left with a tooth that needs to be extracted or falls out due to decay or injury. As an adult, a moment of panic replaces the moment of excitement that you felt as a child.
