The year is going by quickly and Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us! You might be wondering what Valentine’s Day has to do with dentistry. We’re going to tell you…
If you’ve been suffering from a smile marred by missing or damaged teeth, you understand all too well the hassles this can cause. You may be forced to settle for a bland diet of soft foods that you can gum, rather than being able to dive into a thick, juicy steak or eat crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples and corn-on-the-cob.
You may also be shy to show off your smile because of the condition of your teeth. You may be tired of hiding your smile behind your hand or practicing a “closed-lip” smile.
If either of these situations describes you, you probably don’t love your smile very much right now. In fact, you may be downright tired of it!
At Gregg D. Bobier, DMD, our team believes that you should have a smile you can take pride in. This Valentine’s Day, we want you to fall in love with your smile all over again! If you don’t think that’s possible, we’re going to show you that it is.
We have many wonderful ways to improve your smile using the power of dental implants. If you don’t know about these replacement teeth roots, you owe it to yourself to find out more about them.
Dental implants are one of the greatest revolutions in modern dentistry. The current style of implants was developed in the 1960s, and they have only improved since then.
Today, teeth implants are usually made from titanium, a metal that will fully fuse with your jawbone. Once new bone grows around your implants, they will serve as a sturdy base for new replacement teeth. Dr. Bobier can attach beautiful, lifelike teeth to your implants that will function just like natural teeth do.
Because dental implants stimulate your jawbone, causing it to produce new bone cells, they help prevent bone loss that can eventually cause changes in the structure of your face. Implants can help you avoid a “sunken-face” look.
We encourage you to call us today to get started on your smile. Our team will work hand in hand with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you love your smile once more.
Best of all, you can get your dental implants and new teeth all right here. Dr. Bobier both places and restores implants, which means you avoid the hassle of going to different practices to complete your treatment.
Below we outline some of our most popular implant options; when you come into our office, we’ll help you decide on the one that will best suit your needs.
We Offer Many Types of Implant Restorations
Your ideal implant restoration will largely depend on the condition of your mouth. If you have only one or two missing teeth, we will likely use a single implant, or possibly two, to secure your new teeth. We can attach a natural-looking crown to a single implant, or have a bridge made that will anchor to two or more implants to give you back your smile.
If you have widespread dental damage or you’re missing most of your teeth, you’ll really appreciate the power of dental implants to restore your smile. Dr. Bobier can stabilize a set of dentures to your dental implants to replace all your teeth. If you’ve ever had conventional dentures, you’re aware that they can sometimes slip out of place or become uncomfortable.
The best part about implant-secured dentures is that they will stay firmly in place. You won’t have to worry about them moving around or even popping out of your mouth and causing you embarrassment. We can attach your dentures using either a system of snaps and balls – making it easy to remove the dentures for cleaning – or with a sturdy metal bar – making it so you never have to remove your teeth for cleaning.
We have other great ways to replace complete arches of teeth, too. Using the All-on-4® or All-on-6 procedures, we can secure a full row of teeth with either four or six dental implants respectively. And you won’t have to remove these teeth either. They’ll stay put, and all you have to do is brush them like you would your natural teeth.
Plus, with these two methods, we can usually give you your implants and new teeth in a single day. You won’t have the waiting period that usually goes along with dental implants. That means you’ll never be without your teeth again!
As you can see, dental implants are a fantastic way to restore your missing teeth. Our team would love to help you get your teeth back so you can fall in love with your smile again this Valentine’s Day. Call us today at either of our locations: Rochester (248-656-8880) or Clarkston (248-625-4492).
