Investing in Dental Implants
Suffering from tooth loss? Same day dental implants can replace a single missing tooth as well as a full arch. Permanent tooth restoration is an investment not only in your smile but in your happiness because it improves your quality of life. Someone with dentures may have to worry about discomfort and irritation of the denture resting on the gums or whether it will shift when he or she eats or talks. For the highest quality tooth replacement, Dr. Nargiz Schmidt recommends dental implants. With dental implants, you can eat, smile, and speak with confidence, knowing that your smile looks great and functions as it should. Additionally, implants help to prevent bone loss so investing in dental implants now will spare you from costly treatments to restore bone health in the future.
The cost of dental implants is largely determined by the number of teeth that must be replaced, the type of implants placed, and any treatments that must be performed in preparation. If, for example, you have gum disease, Dr. Schmidt would have to treat the condition first or it can jeopardize your new implants.
Sufficient bone density is also necessary for successful implants. After an evaluation of your oral health, Dr. Schmidt can determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants and also whether you need any additional treatments. Not all patients do.
