Ways We Help To Restore Your Smile
No matter how diligent we are with our oral health, sometimes accidents and facial trauma occur and patients are left with missing and broken teeth. We know that it can be heartbreaking when you are left with your oral health in what feels like shambles. Patients who experience tooth loss to illness, medication side effects, and severe decay have many of the same feelings. Smiling is a way that we can showcase our personality or give a greeting to another without needing to utter a word, and when that is not possible, it is easy to develop issues with self-esteem and become introverted.
At Brown & Gettings, DDS, we are here to help you restore your smile to what it was and help you love your smile again. Dr. Brown recently shared a success story about a patient who was able to remain positive after overcoming the adversity of losing multiple teeth and being patient with the restoration process. Watch the video to listen to this empowering story.
As seen in the video, Dr. Brown explains that, although it is not easy, it is better to be patient and thorough with the restoration process than rushing and restoring your smile in a way that will not be beneficial in the future. Using a combination of implants and crowns, this patient is now able to enjoy her smile in a way she was never able to before.
When dealing with a loss of the entire tooth structure, we feel that dental implants are the best replacement for your natural teeth. The procedure involves replacing your natural tooth root with an artificial one. Over time, this replacement fuses with the bone, creating a sturdy base for a prosthetic tooth, such as a crown, to be placed in alignment with your other teeth. Although a longer process, the final result closely mirrors your natural teeth and offers many benefits and advantages to other options.
A crown is a tooth-colored cap that is used to cover an implant or restore a damaged tooth that has the tooth root intact. The material used looks and feels like your natural teeth.
In the video, the before and after photos of the implant and crown treatments are truly remarkable.
