The Bionic Mouth

Tooth loss is an epidemic. Tooth loss can be caused by a variety of things, tooth decay, gum disease, or simple genetics.   An astonishing one-fourth of Americans over the age of 65 have no teeth at all.  With this, comes a feeling of loss, you have lost your appearance you have been used to for these 65 years, and you have lost your ability to eat the things you once could.  This can have a detrimental impact on your health because some of these foods, such as vegetables and nuts, contain healthful things to your diet. Thus, you want to fix this somehow to restore your appearance and your health.

But, just because you may have lost a few teeth or even all of them, does not mean that your case cannot be hopeful. Dentures may be one option, but these can shift and rub the tissues in your gums the wrong way as well as not have the power of your old teeth.  Therefore, the first and best option, are Implants.

Implants create healthy roots for the false teeth and will provide you with a perfect smile fit for you. The process can take six months and have some cost, but the end result will be worth it, and probably save you money instead.  It beings with an X-ray of your mouth, an assessment of your bone, and then a treatment plan customized for you and this process.  When all is done, you can look the way you have always wanted and eat anything you want, including those hard pretzels and almonds that you love.

Overall, tooth loss is not the end of your smile, just come in to see Dr. Swanson for more information about Implants and customize a treatment plan for you!
