Dental Implants For A Better Life
Welcome back to our blog!
If you are looking for a dentist in San Carlos, CA, we hope you’ll stop by the office of Dr. Ghina Morad, to explore all that we have to offer.
Here we strive to meet the comprehensive dentistry needs of all of our patients and we do so in a pleasant atmosphere surrounded by beautiful Redwoods and streams.
We will do our best to keep up with everything that life throws your way.
One such thing is tooth loss as an adult. Sure, you can stay on top of your hygiene and checkups so that periodontal disease or advanced decay won’t dislodge your teeth. But you can’t really prepare for or prevent some things such as a pickup truck slamming into your minivan or an uneven sidewalk that sends you flying.
If you lose a tooth as an adult, regardless of how it happens, it will be painful and traumatic, and, well, embarrassing.
This is because your smile is one of the first things that others will notice about you and your own self-worth is often bound up with the way that you feel about the way that you look.
Plus, your other teeth will try to shift around to compensate for the hole that now exists where there was once a tooth. This will cause a giant mess in your mouth if the situation is not addressed quickly.
If you ever find yourself in the midst of such a scenario, your San Carlos, CA dentist can help stop the damage and turn things around for you with a dental implant.
What Are Dental Implants All About?
Implants are the product of a new dental technology that allows us to craft replacement teeth that can mimic the look and function of your real teeth.
Basically, they will look and feel pretty close to the real thing and they will last forever, if cared for properly.
They will give you back your biting power allowing you to eat enough fiber.
This is something that few people think about when they lose a tooth. But when you can’t properly chew healthy food, your body will suffer.
Fiber is key for keeping your heart healthy. It also helps regulate blood sugar, weight gain, and digestion while preventing strokes.
Besides the health advantages of having a full set of teeth, implants will also restore your appearance.
Your smile will be suffering until you fill in those gaping holes, plus your cheeks will cave in adding years to your look.
This will add to your self-consciousness and make you more likely to withdraw from social settings, which will only perpetuate your unhappiness.
No one wants to live like that.
Given all that you stand to lose (your health, appearance, and social life), we hope you now appreciate how much implants can change your life.
Dental Implant Procedures At Dr. Ghina Morad’s Office
The first step is to surgically insert the implant into your jawbone. Our dental implants are made of titanium, which has the unique quality of easily fusing to bone.
Once your implant is successfully placed, an impression of the area will be taken so that we will be sure to create the perfect artificial tooth to restore your implant with when you return to complete the process a few months later.
It is as easy as that to get back on track.
Dental implants are the next best thing to natural teeth and will quickly allow you to move forward with a healthy, happy life.
