Teeth do a lot, but the most important thing may be letting you eat the foods you love. Biting into fresh fruit is satisfying. Chewing steak or chicken lets you enjoy their flavors. If you’ve lost teeth, you want to smile again, but you also want your bite back. Dental implants from our Edgewood, KY dentists can give you both.
At our office, you can get implants to:
- Hold your replacement teeth secure
- Give you a natural-looking smile
- Let you eat the foods you love
- Bite and chew without pain
In many ways, implants let you be yourself again. To understand what we mean, schedule a visit with one of our doctors. Call Edgewood Dental Care at 859-474-7830.
Rebuild Your Quality of Life with a Dental Implant Procedure
Patients often get partial or full dentures hoping to bring back their smile. For a while it’s OK, but dentures get looser with time. They slide around when you try to speak. They get pulled out when you bite certain foods. They make it difficult to chew many things, too. Denture adhesives can be a temporary fix, but that can change the taste of everything you eat.
You can avoid those frustrations. Implants replace your teeth and restore the full function of your mouth. Speak clearly and without any worries that your teeth will come out. Bite and chew with practically as much power as you did before you lost your teeth. Implants also prevent the bone loss that occurs when you have traditional dentures. If you have lost any bone, however – whether from wearing dentures or after losing your teeth – we may be able to build it back up with a bone grafting procedure.
Go Where You’ll Get the Most from Your New Teeth
Implants are as close as you can get to real teeth. They have a success rate of about 98 percent, and with proper care, they can last the rest of your life. Plus, they can help you be healthier. With strong, stable teeth, you can thoroughly chew a variety of foods. This lets you digest your food easier, so you get the nutritional benefits as well.
It’s essential that your implants are placed properly. Our Edgewood, KY dentist office has invested in CT technology, which lets us see your mouth and jaw in three dimensions. With that data, we can accurately diagnose your situation and determine the best location for each implant. By coming to our office, you will also benefit from Dr. McMahon’s extensive knowledge and training as a Diplomate in the International Dental Implant Association.
Don’t settle for slippery dentures. Instead, choose teeth replacements that look and feel like the real thing. To get your dental implants at Edgewood Dental Care, call 859-474-7830.
