A Fresh Start After Losing A Tooth

 Permanent Tooth Replacement Are you one of the many men and women who has had a tooth extracted?

If the tooth had been bothering you, it may have been a relief. Unless, of course, the tooth was in the front of your mouth and now the gaping hole shows every time you smile. Ignoring it is extremely difficult because your tongue can’t leave the gap alone.

I’m Missing a Tooth. Now What?

Once the tooth has been extracted, you have many important decisions to make.

  • Do I want a dental bridge?
  • Is a dental bridge a permanent solution?
  • Do I want to damage two healthy teeth to anchor the bridge?
  • Should I elect a partial denture?
  • What about bone loss?

A Better Restoration

What if you could have a fresh start? What if you could have a permanent, natural looking tooth replacement that would restore your smile and retain the healthy bone and gum tissue around the tooth root? If you decide on a tooth implant, you can.

A dental implant is a permanent replacement for all parts of the tooth. It is comprised of three parts: the titanium post, the abutment, and the restoration.

The Titanium Post
—Inserted directly into the jaw bone
—Extremely strong
—Titanium is unique in that it bonds with living bone tissue (also used in knee and hip replacement surgery)

The Abutment
—Can be made of gold, porcelain or titanium
—Permanently attached to the post (it will not slip and slide like dentures)

The Restoration (Crown)
—Usually made of porcelain fused to a metal alloy (PFM)
—Is made to match the color of surrounding teeth
—Will look as good or better than the tooth it replaced

Dental implant surgery is not an experimental treatment. The innovative materials and techniques have been tested and refined for several decades.

Moreover, it has been carried out by dentists and prosthodontists for over thirty years.

At , we are dental implant specialists but also provide general dental services. If you are considering a dental implant, we will first perform an examination. It’s important to assess your oral condition before we talk about an implant.

Know The Risk Factors For Oral Problems

Most individuals are in a medium to low risk category for dental problems. However, if you use tobacco or alcohol, eat a lot of sugar, have an eating disorder, have poor oral hygiene practices, or experience medical conditions that influence your mouth, you are likely in a higher risk category. It is critical to your dental and physical health to have your teeth checked immediately.

We analyze many factors to determine the status of your oral health. We want you to have the healthiest teeth possible so you can enjoy a beautiful smile for life. The philosophy ‘”Ignore it and it will go away,” does not apply to a tooth or gum problem.

Are Dental Implants An Option If I Have Receding Gums?

tooth implants

Dentists have to make a lot of judgment calls. Implant dentists are no exception. A dental implant specialist must identify which patients are good candidates for implant surgery. Dental implants have a high success rate when performed correctly.

Success depends on many considerations. 

A key determination is whether the patient has enough healthy bone to support the implant. Healthy gum tissue is also critical. Without healthy gum tissue, the implant is partially exposed. This isn’t ideal for the implant nor the crown it supports. An implant needs a durable foundation of bone and tissue. Receding gums should be treated prior to dental implant placement.

If you are thinking about a dental implant but have receding gums, there are some options. We invite you to schedule a dental implant consultation by calling .

You may be a suitable candidate for soft tissue grafts. Tissue grafts augment your existing gums. If the soft tissue grafting is successful, you may be able to support a dental implant. Provided, of course, that you have enough healthy bone structure. Your implant dentist may also counsel bone grafting surgery in addition to the soft tissue grafts. This procedure augments natural bone.

Receding gums should not be ignored. You may have gum disease or periodontitis. This is a serious oral health problem on its own. Whether or not you are considering a dental implant. Receding gums can lead to decay and tooth loss. Your overall oral health depends not only on healthy teeth but also healthy gums. Talk to your dentist about treating gum recession to restore oral health.

You Know It When You See It

top cosmetic dentist

You may not be able to articulate why all the elements blend in perfect harmony. But you know it when you see it.

We’re talking about a beautiful smile. At , beautiful smiles are our specialty.

We provide tooth implants and other cosmetic dental procedures for complete smile makeovers.

You may be surprised at how many details must consider when planning for a smile redesign.

Here are a few of the most obvious components:

  • Tooth Color: shade, brightness, uniformity
  • Tooth alignment: straight or crooked?
  • Tooth size and proportions: are some teeth much larger or smaller than the rest?
  • Tooth spacing: is there crowding or big gaps between teeth?
  • Gumline margins: how much gum shows when you smile?

Here are some other cosiderations that may be less familiar to the layperson:

  • The portions of the teeth that are visible when the mouth is at rest
  • The relationship of the smile line and the lip line
  • Zenith points: the highest point of the gumline in relation to the center of the tooth
  • Midline placement: the smile should be centered in the middle of the lips, mouth, and face
  • Mesial inclination: the tops of the teeth should angle slightly away from the midline

If vital design principles are not followed, the smile may look ‘off’. Or it could affect the function of the teeth and jaw. For example, a smile redesign carried out by an inexperienced cosmetic dentist could change the patient’s bite and put unnecessary stress on the restorations.

Do not select a dental implant dentist by procedure cost alone. If you are thinking about a single tooth implant or total mouth restoration, call today to schedule a dental implant consultation.

Don’t Let Anxiety Keep You From Getting Implants

Oral Conscious Sedation Some dental implant patients experience severe anxiety when undergoing dental treatment. Don’t let a fear of the dentist keep you from benefitting from implants.

Relax or Sleep Through Treatment

With oral conscious sedation, it is possible to relax during dental procedures instead of being tense and fearful.

Oral sedation dentistry, relaxation dentistry, conscious sedation and anxiety-free dentistry are all terms used to describe this type of treatment. In addition to alleviating anxiety, oral conscious sedation can help   dental patients with a variety of conditions.

You may want to consider oral conscious sedation if you have any of the following issues:

  • Strong gag reflex
  • Fear of needles
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Fear and anxiety associated with dental treatment
  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A history of negative dental experiences
  • Trouble controlling body movement associated with Parkinson’s disease, Cerebral Palsy or similar condition
  • Need extensive dental treatment requiring lengthy dental visits

If you have avoided dental treatment due to any of these factors, give us a call at . We can give you critical information about sedation options and help you determine which one is right for you.

At we do all we can to make your visit as comfortable as possible. We look forward to discussing your oral health and dental goals.

How Do I Choose A Dentist To Perform My Implant Procedure?

implant dentist

Today’s message is for people who have decided to replace a tooth with an implant. Great choice!

Now you need to choose a dental implant specialist to execute the procedure.

This is a critical decision. A permanent dental implant is permanent. It involves oral surgery. It requires a significant financial investment. Making a bad choice of provider can lower your chances for success.

Here are the critical factors to consider:

Experience

  • How many years has the dentist been performing implants?
  • How many dental implant procedures has he/she done?
  • How many years has the dentist been practicing cosmetic dentistry?

Patient Reviews

Online reviews are a great resource. Former patients not only give a star rating, some of them share details about their experience. Check out the reviews for any dentist you are contemplating. Visit multiple online platforms.

Office Atmosphere

A modern dental practice with the latest technology helps ensure a successful outcome. When you visit the office, ask about their patient amenities. Observe the cleanliness of the office and friendliness of the team.

What About Price?

You may wonder why we didn’t list price as one of the variables. This was intentional. Choosing an implant clinic by price alone is a bad idea. In the area, most implant dentists’ prices are comparable. If you find a provider that has slashed the price for implants, be wary. Find out exactly what is covered. A dental implant consists of a post, abutment and crown (or denture). Some implant-only clinics advertise the price for the post alone. This is misleading.

How much does a tooth implant cost at ? Call to schedule a consultation. We can discuss your specific implant needs and financing options.

Stick Out Your Tongue!

 oral cancer exams Dentists diagnose and treat conditions of the teeth and gums. These conditions can affect the tongue. Let’s discuss the tongue.

Have you ever considered all the important things your tongue can do? It helps us talk, perceive the texture and flavor of food, chew, and swallow.

This strong and nimble gymnast is in nonstop motion during our waking hours. It is a wonder that we don’t accidentally bite it more often as we smile, chew, drink, breathe, swallow, cough, and laugh.

Your tongue can also reveal physical ailments. This may include digestive conditions, infections, and diseases of the blood.

When performs oral exams, the tongue is always looked at for signs of oral cancer and other serious diseases.

Here are some tongue abnormalities and possible causes:

Swollen tongue: reaction to food/drink/medication, strep infection, leukemia, hypothyroidism

White tongue: dehydration, yeast infection, irritation to tobacco, enteritis, gastritis, colitis, anemia, or other nutritional deficiency

Canker sores: may be triggered by stress or reaction to food, toothpaste, or mouthwash.

If you have persistent canker sores, you may want to try avoiding products that contain sodium lauryl (or laurel) sulfate (SLS). SLS is a cheap foaming agent that is found in many personal care products. It can be difficult to find SLS-free dental products. The following brands have previously offered SLS-free versions but labels carefully every time you buy a new tube. We have noticed that SLS has re-appeared in some brands. ( has no affiliation with any of these companies.)

  • Biotene
  • Sensodyne Pronamel
  • Tom’s of Maine
  • Rembrandt Low Abrasion

If you can’t find an SLS-free toothpaste at your local grocery store, I would suggest trying health food stores, specialty drug stores, or trusted online sites.

Many people ask about tongue-scraping. We recommend thorough dental hygiene including cleaning the tongue. To schedule a consultation to discuss any dental health issues including tongue scraping, please contact us at .
